We get this question a lot, and the answer explains why “fresh” fish is often inferior The benefits of flash-freezing might best be summed up by the following observation: a fresh-caught fish is like a melting ice cube, its quality can not be improved, only maintained.

Thank goodness for the internet. I don’t know what I would do without it in cases like these. Here is the low down on what I found out about flash freezing from the various sites I visited: • Flash freezing just seems to be a fancy name for freezing food. The technique is a tad different but its the same concept. The key is that the items freeze individually rather than sticking together. • Any raw food can be easily flash froze – fruits, veggies, meats. • The key is to use a cookie sheet and put the items in a single layer. For example blueberries. You wash and thoroughly dry the berries then you put on a cookie sheet making sure to cover the sheet but not cover up the berries. Then you freeze and o
