Here are the steps on how you should defrost the golden pomfret fish.
The golden pomfret is a versatile fish, present in seafood recipes spanning multiple cultures’ cuisines. Let’s look at several recipes that may pique your interest to cook with the filleted pomfret.
While these 2 are popular choices of dishes when using the filleted golden pomfret, there are still many cultures that integrate them into their cuisines such as Filipino cuisines, Malay cuisines, and many more. Another easy way to cook the frozen golden pomfret is by simply making it grilled or stir-fried. Although dried golden pomfret may seem easy to make, it requires patience.
Packaging: As the fish may vary in size and weight, it can be ordered in a minimum amount of at least 20 feet containers or 40 feet containers. The supplier also provides filleting, cleaning, and other services for the product.
Storing Information: The fish should be kept frozen under temperatures of 0°c or 32°f inside a freezer for it to stay edible for at least 12 months. The taste and quality may still deteriorate slowly over time even though it is still edible, hence it should be finished off as fast as possible.
Nutrients: Similar to most other fishes, the frozen golden pomfret is rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins B12 and D, phosphorus, and selenium. This will help you in repairing damaged tissues, improve heart condition, improve brain activity, reduce inflammation, and boost the immune system. Unlike a lot of mass-distributed fishes, the golden pomfret is low in fat, making it a good choice for those looking to lose weight.
Certificates/Claims: The frozen golden pomfret supplied by Jaya Maju Food Supplies Sdn Bhd has been awarded 4 certificates due to the standard of quality it is distributed in.
The frozen golden pomfret is a famous freshwater fish found in the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean. The seafood is known scientifically as the Trachinotus Blochii and as ikan bawal in Malay. The fish appears to be oval-shaped, slightly translucent and can grow up to 90 cm (35.43 inches) in length. It can be easily mistaken through its name with the golden pompano, which is a fish more commonly found in the Atlantic Ocean instead while having slight similarities in appearance. However, they are of different species and are different in size, where the pompano frows up to about two-thirds of its length.
Considering that it may be slightly high in price than other fishes sold in the market, the nutrients it is rich in makes up for it along with its mild taste that is perfect to be made as the core of very strong flavored recipes such as Southeast Asian cuisines and Indian Cuisines.
Founded in 1998, the Jaya Maju Food Supplies Sdn Bhd now owns a 45000 square feet land processing factory along with 2500 metric tons of storage facility.
