Attention seafood lovers, this blog is for you. Many restaurants give incredible portions of your fish food and you are unable to finish it. It doesn’t help that many people are against leftover fish. Let’s face it, many people would agree that seafood wasn’t meant to be put in the microwave. Of course, seafood is best when fresh. That doesn’t mean there aren’t methods to make your seafood taste just as good as when it came out on the plate.
How to Reheat Fish
The secret to reheating fish is, to not reheat it at all. When you want to reheat your fish, try to get it to room temperature. Turn your oven on to 400 degrees and place your leftover fish on your stove. Let the fish absorb the heat through the oven. Once the fish comes to your desired temperature, you’re done.
Room temperature should be your goal for your fish. This should be the same method for reheating fried, grill, or baked fish.
Different Ways to Use Leftover Fish
For shrimp leftovers, you can get versatile with new dishes to create! Try switching up the original dish. Grilled shrimp goes great with noodles, pad thai, pasta, fried rice, tacos, and risottos. If you don’t want to reheat your shrimp, add your cold cooked shrimp into salads or even try cocktail style!
For dishes that have mussels or clams, create linguine recipes, and include additional ingredients. Clams also work well for chowder and with crab or lobster, bisque. You want to avoid dried-out fish. Incorporate your leftover fish into fresh recipes. Bring together flavors to complement your dishes, add stocks, sauces, or creams to add to your leftover fish.
