Whats peoples opinions on fresh fish vs. frozen? You always hear people say there is nothing like fresh fish compared to frozen, is that an exaggeration or is there something in it, i.e. does fresh fish degrade a lot more than red meat if you freeze it?
Reason I ask is Ive been trying to get more fish into myself. Earlier this year I designated every Friday as fish day (back to my childhood ha). For a couple of months I was always having some frozen fish from the airfryer but invariably that comes breaded and I think with the amount of breading on it you're only convincing yourself you are eating healthy whereas its probably about 50/50 breading to fish.
So over the summer I moved onto fresh fish only, always bought it on the Friday in Aldi and cooked it within an hour of getting it home. I cook it with the steam function on the Instant Pot and it comes out great. But now Im getting a bit tired of the same old cod/coley/haddock rotation and would like to try out some other species. Came across this site www.eatmorefish.ie
which has an unbelievable range of choice and loads of stuff Id like to try for the first time. But with delivery costs you would want to be stocking up at least 50 or 60 euros worth which would then mean freezing the bulk of all that fresh fish. I think I'll give it a punt anyway but just wondering how much of a drop off in flavour from fresh fish is there to frozen?
