After what could be your most incredible angling adventure ever, you may ask yourself, “what’s the best way to maximize my bounty?” A successful fishing vacation ends with countless memories and more fish than ever imagined, and we’re here to help you with both!

Processed Fish Storage

Whether you take home 100 or 500 pounds of processed fish from Admiralty Island, you’ll need to store it properly. We’ll package your bounty, but what you do afterward depends on your preferences. All your fish should stay frozen until you’re ready to prepare it. Keep in mind that fish usually lasts only about two days off the ice before its quality diminishes. Thawing your fish in the refrigerator is the best way to maintain its quality. Some people will use the thaw setting on their microwave or leave it at room temperature, which we don’t recommend. After your filets thoroughly thaw, it’s time to start seasoning them and preparing a delicious meal!

Finding the Best Ways to Cook Your Processed Fish

There is a wide variety of recipes floating around on the internet. Many of these recipes don’t take freshness into consideration. How you prepare fish from the store can vary from how you prepare your fresh-caught and processed fish from Alaska. Some seasonings are ideal for a particular type of fish and may not work well with other varieties. The last thing you want is to undermine the delicious flavor of your bounty. A little bit of seasoning can go a long way! Check out our blog page for some delicious salmon recipes.
