Tis the season of meal prepping!
If you’re interested in meal prepping with wild caught seafood, but you’re unsure of store times, or what varieties are better to use, then we’re here to give you a few tips on meal prepping with wild caught seafood!
Is It Safe to Meal Prep With Wild Caught Fish?
The answer is YES!
When meal prepping with wild caught fish, make sure you are using high quality meal prep containers that allow you to store your fish in the fridge. Using good containers will ensure that your fish stays fresh enough to eat for up to 4-5 days.
If you have freezer safe meal prep containers, consider freezing your meals! This will allow them to store even longer – giving them a lifespan of up to three months.
What Should I Meal Prep With?
We suggest meal prepping with wild caught Alaskan fish varieties.
Seafood is lean, meaning it cooks fairly quickly. All of the varieties listed above lend themselves well to baking, which saves time and dishes!
All you really need to do is season, place on the baking sheet, and bake for a few minutes.
If you aren’t quite the “seafood lover” yet, or if you are turned off by the smell, we would suggest marinating! When you marinate your fish overnight or for at least 30 minutes, your fish will become infused with the flavors that you want it to take on. Marinating is especially good for fish species that have a higher fat content, such as salmon.
