Preserving Freshness at the Restaurant
Proper temperatures will maintain that delicate, just caught freshness. Take pains to keep the temperature of the fish near 32 degrees. The following procedures are recommended:
- Keep fish in container with lid tightly on to avoid dehydration.
- Place ice around all four sides of container and keep in cooler to achieve 32 degree goal.
- Cut portions in cooler if at all possible to minimize loss of temperature.
- Do not place ice directly on fillet and prevent direct contact with melted water.
- Minimize time fillets are left in kitchen - cover with polysheets to prevent air spoilage.
- Do not over order - best to be temporarily out of something than to serve something that may disappoint the customer.
Rule of thumb states that in a 24 hour period for 2 degrees above 32 you hold fish you lose one day shelf life. The maximum shelf life is 12 days from hook to skillet. Hence, if you hold fish at 40 degrees, you lose four days shelf life and there may be only six to eight days shelf life available to start with.
