We all know how healthy seafood is to eat; however, to enjoy it fully, we recommend the following suggestions to Make It Easy!

Fish Portions (6-8oz)

- Broil or Bake (350°F Pre-Heated)

- Bake Time 12-20 mins (Thickness)

- Max Finish Temp 145°F

- Seafood Should be Flaky


- Sear Medium to High

- 3 to 5 minutes

- Finish Temp 130-140°F



- Sear Med. High to High

- Brush with butter frequently


- Boil Salted Water

- Reduce to Low Bubbling

- 3 to 5 Minutes (3-6oz Tail)

- Add 1 minute for each additional ounce

- Cool immediately in ice water

Please Note: The above guidelines are suggestions only. The average time depends on the size/amount of seafood portions. Stoves and pans also vary in performance, so check color and texture regularly to achieve perfectly cooked seafood. Please use a meat thermometer for accuracy.

Thawing frozen seafood properly is significant not only to ensure the quality of the seafood but also to prevent health risks. For example, all of our seafood has a protective glaze of water to prevent freezer burn-in to ensure quality. Once thawed, gently pat away any excess moisture from the glazing as soon as possible.

We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions are followed and that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all seafood and other applicable items are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here.

Here are a few simple ways how to defrost:

The Refrigerator Method

It might be the longest, but thawing seafood in the refrigerator is undoubtedly the safest way to thaw any protein such as seafood. It also protects the quality of the seafood, providing the best quality-control method. For example, for our Individual Frozen Portions (IFP) or Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) bags like our shrimp and scallops, it can take up to 12- 24 hours to thaw. Please remove from the original package, plate, and cover, or at a minimum, puncture the plastic packaging. Once melted, seafood lasts up to three days in the original packaging. Do not refreeze after thawing.

The Water Method

Here’s how it works:

IFP Portions: Place the seafood in a bowl of cold water (not warm or hot as that starts the cooking process) in the kitchen sink. Change the water now and then or place a constant drip/spray of water to control the temperature. Check the seafood after one hour – it should be fully thawed by then. Cook immediately after thawing.

IQF bags:

Place the desired quantity of seafood (scallops/shrimp) that you will use into another resealable bag.Replace unused IQF seafood immediately back into the freezer.Submerge the sealed bag in a bowl of cold tap water.Let the bag sit in the water until it’s completely thawed, changing the water every 30 minutes, if necessary.

We don’t recommend running under cold water outside of the bag. Cook immediately after thawing.

The Microwave Method

Not always the favorite way, but it’s fast, and the microwave method is undoubtedly the quickest of the three. Still, it’s the least preferred method to preserve the seafood’s quality. But if you forgot to take it out of the freezer and are in a hurry, here’s what you do: make sure you puncture the plastic before placing it in the microwave. Use the “Defrost” function and set the time according to weight. Cook immediately after thawing.

Meet Captain Rip Carlton

Captain Rip has been fishing in the Bering Sea for over forty years. As Captain of only five boats that harvest Golden King crab, it’s no exaggeration to describe him as one of the world’s foremost authorities on Goldens. Rip is a leader in the fishery and is pivotal in ensuring the cooperation between fishermen, biologists, native groups, and government agencies that make the Golden King crab fishery a model of sustainability and collaboration.

Tune into The Discovery Channel to catch Captain Rip and his crew on Season 18 of The Deadliest Catch. With the Alaska Red King fishery closed for the 2021-22 season, the show shifts from its traditional focus on the Red King crab to the more elusive Golden King crab.
