Fish Recipes for Shavuos

With a three day Yom Tov approaching we have received many great questions about which fish recipes can be prepared ahead of time and either stored for a few days or frozen.  Here are a few tips for fresh fish preparation and storage, then some recipes we recommend.  Don’t forget to check the fish recipes [1] in the index and on the homepage [2], there are so many choices, there is sure to be a recipe for everyone’s taste.

Tips for Great Fish Preparation

To sum it up, either prepare the fish on Friday and store it until ready to cook on Sunday. Or, buy the fish fresh on Thursday and store it in the freezer, wrapped, as we suggested above.  Then on Saturday evening put it in the refrigerator to defrost.  Prepare the fish fresh on Sunday morning and serve.

These recipes below may be prepared and stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to two days.
