Focus Continued from page 52 pound package will take about 24 hours. Never defrost seafood at room temperature or with hot or warm water. If you forget or change your meal plans at the last minute, you can defrost your fish under cold running water. A one- pound package will defrost in about one hour. You can also use your microwave oven to partially thaw your fish. Use the lowest de- frost setting, which is usually 30 percent power and follow oven manufacturer's instructions for time based on amount of fish. The fish should feel cool; be careful not to overheat and begin the cooking process. Foods defrosted in the microwave oven should be cooked as soon as possible after thawing. Safe handling: As with any perishable food item, you need to follow several common-sense guidelines. Keep it clean-your hands, your work area, and your utensils. Always use hot/warm soapy water. Keep raw seafood away from other raw or cooked foods to prevent cross-contamina- tion. This is especially true when you grill seafood. Always bring out a clean platter to put your cooked product on. Never re-use the plate that held the raw fish. Keep it cold - from store or boat io your home, in your refrigerator or your freezer, and cool down left- overs quickly. If needed, divide food into small, shallow contain- ers to speed up the cooking process. Seafood cuisine. Timing is one of the secrets to delicious fish cookery. Fish is properly cooked when the flesh has just begun to turnfrom translucent to opaque or white. The meat is firm, but still moist. Fish becomes dry and taste- less if overcooked.
