Seafood Tips

Can I freeze my seafood?
Yes! If you're planning to keep your seafood products frozen, we recommend you put them in the freezer immediately upon receipt. If you cannot wait to eat it, simply remove the vacuum packaging and thaw under refrigeration. Even if some thawing occured during transit, it is perfectly safe to re-freeze your seafood. 

How do I store my seafood?
Once your Saltwater Grove Seafood box is delivered, open it and inspect your seafood. The contents should be cold. Place your delicious seafood into the freezer for use at a later date or remove the vacuum packaging and thaw in the refrigerator for immediate use. All of our seafood in containers (shucked oysters & crabmeat) can be thawed in the packaging you receive them in.

How much seafood should I serve?
The FDA recommends a minimum of 8 oz. of seafood per week. A serving of seafood is considered 4 oz. When the seafood is cooked it loses some of its weight.

I’m having a party, how much seafood might each person eat?

Adults = 1 lb. seafood

Children = ½ lb. seafood

People typically eat more seafood during sporting events. Consumption also depends on what else you’re serving.

For whole fish, plan on about 1 lb. per person since there are some portions of the fish typically not consumed.
