Frozen Seafood Myths

 

When it comes to frozen seafood, people have some strange misconceptions. Romanticizing the idea of “fresh fish,” they often discount the very real nutritional value of frozen fish! The truth is, frozen seafood contains a wealth of important nutrients, as well as being tasty, convenient, and easy to prepare. Here, we debunk some of the common myths related to frozen seafood and fish in general.

  • Myth #1: Frozen fish is less nutritious than fresh fish. This is unequivocally false. Because fishing vessels remain at sea for long periods of time, the “fresh fish” you purchase has often been sitting around for a while before it reaches you. However, modern freezing methods allow for quick freezing of seafood to maintain quality and freshness. Frozen fish makes it to your table with the freshness locked in—just as nutritious and delicious as if you’d pulled the fish  from the water yourself.
  • Myth #2: Other meats are just as nutritious as fish. The fact is, fish are an excellent source of lean protein, amino acids, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike fatty beef,  pork or poultry products, fish is low in saturated fat, and the nutrients in fish fight a number of ailments, including cardiovascular disease. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish a week. Many of the frozen seafood products available from Morey’s Seafood are gluten free, which is great for those looking for a convenient and tasty meal as part of a gluten-free diet.
  • Myth #3: Fishing is bad for the environment. Many trustworthy manufacturers, including frozen seafood brands like Morey’s Seafood, focus on sustainable and safe fishing methods to ensure the safety of the environment, and the regulation and control of fishing practices.
  • Myth #4: Frozen seafood is hard to cook. This is Morey’s favorite falsehood to disprove! Morey’s offers a wide array of pre-portioned, individually packaged, marinated frozen seafood products that are both delicious and easy to cook. The Morey’s website also offers a wealth of recipes designed to make it quick and convenient to put delicious seafood on your family’s table.

Whether fresh or frozen, seafood is one of nature’s perfect foods! Packed with essential nutrients, including protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, seafood is an important part of a healthy diet that helps children to grow and develop properly, and may even help prevent heart disease. In fact, it seems as though scientists are always finding new ways that seafood is beneficial, from lowering cholesterol to improving vision and eye health! Frozen seafood brings all the goodness of seafood to your home, even if you’re half a world away from its source!

With a wealth of frozen seafood brands from which to choose, it’s important to select those that are reputable and provide high quality product. Whichever frozen seafood products you decide to buy, follow a few guidelines to make sure it is the best frozen seafood you can find.

  • Make sure the packaging is intact. Never buy seafood if the package is open, torn, or crushed on the edges.
  • Choose packages that are free from frost or ice crystals. The presence of ice might mean that the frozen fish has been stored for a long time, or that it has thawed and been refrozen.
  • Keep frozen seafood in the freezer. Do not thaw seafood until you are ready to prepare it. Once you’re ready to use it, the best method is to thaw it slowly overnight in the refrigerator. Of course, many seafood products can be cooked straight from the freezer—no thawing required!

Frozen seafood makes it easy to serve your family delectable, restaurant-quality fish, straight from your own freezer!

Smoked Fish to Frozen Seafood: The Story Behind Morey’s Seafood Products

Morey’s Seafood International is now known for manufacturing and distributing restaurant quality frozen seafood products. But the company was first established as Morey Fish company in 1937, when Ed Morey traded a load of corn for a truck load of fresh white fish. From there Ed Morey started to smoke fish and sell it in Motley Minnesota. Morey’s Seafood International’s manufacturing plant is still located in Motley Minnesota. Morey’s Seafood now sells fresh, prepared, and frozen fish internationally to retailers, restaurants, and consumers. Morey’s focuses on quality control and food safety, and has generations of industry professionals maintaining the highest quality in their seafood.
