If time permits, we have always soaked our fish in a salt water brine over night. It helps remove any remaining blood, slime, etc. in the fillets. Typically, we change the brine at least once. The first soak usually turns a little pink in a few hours. The fillets do get stiff by morning.

If you filet them be sure and remove the blood stripe with a v shaped cut . With the blood stripe removed the muddy flavor will be gone.

Thanks, Keith!

A suggestion for keeping fish fresh without freezing: Use paper towels to dry them as much as possible, then place in sealed plastic. Put in bowl with ice, sprinkle ice with road salt, and place in fridge. Periodically add ice and salt as needed.

Superchills fish without damage caused by freezing. I've kept fish for over a week this way and tasted fresh caught. But make sure they are dry!

Arenít the fish filets freezing in the rock salt ice mix, below freezing when you make ice cream.

Maybe because I packed several fillets in each baggie, they did not freeze. Kept right at 32-33F. But you're right, if I had just one thin fillet per baggie, might have been a different story.

Seems over the years I've heard several people say when deep frying. "As soon as it floats up, Its done" Is there any truth to that?
