Is It Better to Buy Fresh or Frozen Seafood?

EB frozen vs fresh

Although it may appear that fresh seafood is a healthier option than frozen, the fact is that both fresh and frozen seafood can be healthy options if stored and prepared properly. 

The freshness of the seafood, which is affected by how fast it was frozen, can affect its taste and texture, among other things.   

Due to modern freezing processes, the quality of the seafood in the freezer area is superior to that in the cases adjacent to it. 

This is due to the fact that most seafood is now frozen straight on the boat, only minutes after being caught, in flash-freezing devices that maintain temperatures well below the average home freezer. Farm-raised fish is also frozen on-site, as freezers are built inside the farm.

There are several advantages to purchasing frozen seafood, including taste, convenience, and cost. 

Because the seafood is frozen at its peak of freshness, all of its flavour, nutrients, and texture are preserved. And it makes no difference whether the fish is fatty or lean, thick steaks or thin fillets, as long as it is properly frozen. 

For example, these frozen seafood products from EB Frozen Food: Alaska Pollock Fillet, Alaska Pollock Finger, and Crispy Battered Fried Shrimp, always have their nutrients locked in, unlike fresh produce that loses some nutrients during storage over time. 

In fact, the nutritious content of frozen shrimp products is the same as or even higher than that of fresh seafood. In general, the mineral composition stays the same as in fresh meals. 

 

 

Why is frozen seafood better than fresh seafood?

1. Convenience

Nothing tops frozen seafood products in terms of convenience. Assume you’ve had a busy day, you haven’t planned dinner, and you need to make something quickly. 

Those well-packaged frozen Alaska pollock fillets in your freezer could come in very handy at such times. They defrost quickly and can be used as an ingredient in any other meal. 

 

2. Longer Shelf Life

The majority of seafood is frozen using flash-freezing technology shortly after being caught. This process preserves the seafood well, allowing it to survive considerably longer than fresh seafood. 

Fresh seafood may be stored in the refrigerator for about 2 days, while frozen fish can be kept for up to 6 months. 

For instance, frozen seafood makes it possible for you to enjoy wonderful fish from all over the world and at any time of year, allowing you to eat summer or winter fish anytime you wish. 

 

 

3. Consistent Quality

As long as the seafood is frozen quickly using appropriate methods, the freshness of the seafood is frozen in time. 

The quality of the seafood is not adversely affected and is equivalent to that of fresh seafood. Freezing the seafood keeps its quality and the majority of its nutritional value.  

Fresh seafood is also more difficult to handle and transport, and it is more prone to bacterial infection. 

Frozen seafood, on the other hand, is easier to transport safely as long as it is kept cold enough, and you can be sure that its quality won’t change from the boat to your plate.    

 

 

4. More Economical

Frozen shrimp and other seafood products are often less expensive than fresh seafood since fresh seafood is more time-sensitive and requires faster transit methods to market. Fresh fish in season is likewise more expensive since supplies are limited. 

As a result, frozen fish can be an excellent alternative if you want to buy in bulk or save money. Frozen fish is also less wasteful for home cooks since you can simply thaw out what you need from the freezer while cooking.

 

In a Nutshell

Overall, the differences between fresh and frozen seafood are minimal—it all comes down to personal choice (and the requirement for convenience!). 

The ease of cooking seafood from frozen is evident, whether you’re baking EB Food Alaska Pollock Fingers or microwaving EB Food Crispy Battered Fried Shrimp.
