Fish Freezer Sheets Absorb Moisture, Preserve Freshness


You don't have to be a gourmet to know that fish tastes best when it's fresh, but sometimes freezing is the next best thing - especially when you've got too much fish to serve at a single meal.

Freezing can result in problems when it's time to thaw out your fish, however: smelly moisture, freezer burns and wrapping paper stuck to the fish, just to name a few.





Asahi Home Products has come up with a solution - so-called "frozen fish extracting sheets" made from saturated polyester resin, pulp, and rayon. The sheets are designed to absorb any extra moisture from wrapped fresh fish portions while protecting the fish from freezer burning.

Once absorbed in the sheet, any fish juices are neutralized and your fish will look, smell, and most importantly taste fresh when thawed out and cooked.

These fish freezer sheets come in packages of 20 with each sheet measuring 300 × 210mm (12 by 8.5 inches). A package costs 298 or about $3.30, which seems like a bargain even though the sheets can be used one time only. (via Impress Watch)
