Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute is the organization tasked to market the commercial fishing industry in Alaska. As the video shows, Alaska’s fisheries are vibrant, healthy, well-managed and produce a huge amount of delicious, healthy, high-quality food for the world. Alaska exports more seafood than all the rest of the United States combined. Among the fisheries represented in the Alaska seafood industry are salmon, halibut, pollock, cod, sablefish, rockfish and crab. Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute continues to do an exemplary job of showing the world the bounty of commercially available seafoods that are harvested in Alaska, and to tell the story of Alaska’s sustainable and renewable fisheries..

In this video, Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute shares techniques for cooking frozen fish. Their Cook It Frozen campaign helps to educate people on how to cook a range of seafoods without the need to thaw. The first demonstration shows you how to air fry frozen salmon. Begin by removing salmon from packaging, rinse in cold water, then pat dry. The next step is to brush with oil and season. Place in the air fryer at 400℉ for 8 to 10 minutes. When salmon is cooked, it should be opaque and flake easily with a fork.

The next demonstration in the seminar is how to steam frozen Alaska cod. Bring an inch of water to a boil. Line a steamer with lettuce, onions, herbs and citrus. Remove cod from packaging, rinse with cold flowing water, and add to the steamer. Steam for 5 to 7 minutes. When the fish is done, the thickest part should be opaque.

The cooking frozen fish seminar continues with how to roast frozen Alaska pollock. First, preheat your oven to 450℉. Next rinse your fish in cold, flowing water and pat dry. Brush both sides of the fish with your oil of choice and place on an aluminum-foil lined baking sheet. Place on the middle rack of your oven and cook for 4 minutes. Next, season with butter and spices and cook for an additional 12 to 15 minutes. Pollock should be opaque in its thickest part when done.

In the next video, learn how to poach frozen Alaska halibut. Halibut is among the most delicious fish swimming in Alaska’s waters, so you won’t want to miss this segment.
