The tuna we get in our part of the States, whatever variety, comes in flash frozen and is mostly thawed when it reaches the butcher's counter. The other day, I found frozen tuna filets (packaged as such) and tried them.

The directions said to thaw them in cold water (the filets were vacuum packed in inner bags) for about 30 minutes. I then seared them in a heated pan with olive oil and herbs, leaving them rare in the center. They turned out deliciously, served on a bed of wild and brown rice with steamed veggies and tossed salad with miso dressing on the side.

Hello, I freeze tuna al the time.. My favorite way to eat it is on the grill.. I like to put garlic salt on it but you can cook it any way you would cook other white fish.. the only thing I have never done with it is steam it. I steam all of my Tilapia.

Have a great day,

I have started back here in Feb 2012 after putting some weight back on. I lost 114lbs here previously and I now know I need this community and the food tracker to keep me in check.

Hi, Maudelynn:

Wow - just goes to show how long I've been sequestered from the universe (was on a ridiculous project where we were not allowed to access external email or messageboards, and getting home too late to do anything).

I've never had frozen tuna, but I have had frozen Tilapia filets. You can safely thaw frozen fish in a container of cold water. Or, wrap a filet in a heavy foil packet with some thin lemon slices, fresh dill, lemon pepper and a little olive oil, then toss it on the grill or in the oven.

Hope this helps.

Alysia :)

I was going to introduce myself to this gang, so thought I'd reply to this languishing message at the same time.

I love the concept of this team! Who wants to try to subsist on cardboard, boring foods?! Not me. Sharing and enjoying food is a wonderful thing, so I'm looking forward to getting some great, healthy but tasty ideas here.

Maude, if you're still looking for tuna ideas...I'd defrost it enough to chop into chunks, and then toss the fish into a one-pot meal. With some onions, garlic, chopped spinach, tomatoes, spices and brown rice, you'd have a wonderful stew.

Hey all!
I bought a half pound tuna steak about a week ago and stuck it right in the freezer.

I was going to thaw it and cook it today. I am nervous though, as I have never cooked frozen fish... only fresh.

What should I do differently?
Any recipe suggestions?

Thank you!
