    Default Freezing fish

    Does anyone use a different method of freezing fish other than in a bag with enough water to cover them?

    I use a quart plastic container. Stacks better in the freezer and takes up less space.

    I read an article by Bill Dance where he would place the fillets on wax paper on a cookie sheet and freeze them overnight then dip each one in a bowl of cold water and place in a freezer bag. The idea being to be able to pull out as many or as few as needed. Think I might give it a try.

    Buy a small freezer to dedicate to wildlife and fish . cheaper in the long run than vacuum sealer and bags . She is right .

    I used and still have a vacuum packer. I went back to quart bags and water. I canít tell any difference in taste a year later, and bags with water is easier. I give over year old to coworkers and theyíve never complained.
