How to Quickly Thaw Meat and Fish

Even the most experienced chefs sometimes find themselves in a situation when they need to quickly thaw meat or fish. When things don’t go according to plan, you need to know a few tricks on how to defrost meat in minutes.

In fact, there are many ways to do this, and some are better than others. For example, it is best not to defrost fish quickly at all. Otherwise, the meat will crumble and never fry properly. Today, Cook It will share with you a quick and safe method of defrosting meat and fish popular in Korea — it will help hurry the cooking process when you’re in a pinch.

First, you need to measure one and a half quarts of water and heat it to 105 °F. You don’t have to use a water thermometer if you don’t have one: you can carefully feel it with your hand. The temperature should be slightly hotter than body temperature, i.e., hot, but not scalding.

Pour the hot water into a bowl and add 3 tablespoons of sugar; mix thoroughly. You may be surprised, but sugar speeds up the defrosting process. Plus, it enhances the meat’s flavor and adds notes of piquancy. All you have to do next is tenderize your defrosted cut of meat using soda and cook it any way you prefer.

How to Defrost Fish

The process of defrosting fish is quite similar, except it features a different auxiliary ingredient.

Heat water to 105 °F in a pot and add 3 tablespoons of salt. Mix thoroughly, and place the frozen fish inside.

Not only will salt speed up the temperature rise in the fish, but it will also act as a simple marinade. Thus, the process of defrosting will take only 7-10 minutes. Of course, if the piece is large, it may take a bit longer.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
