Tips & Tricks to Reheat Fish:

Avoid Using the Microwave if You Can:

Microwaves blast food with high temperatures that can overcook the outside and leave the middle cold. If you have to reheat seafood in the microwave, make sure to always add a splash of water to the dish and leave it covered

Reheat Leftover Seafood in the Oven at a low temperature:

Ovens radiate a steady amount of heat that evenly reheats food. Your seafood will smell just as good as the first night since the slow reheating process does not breakdown fatty oils like the microwave does.

To reheat seafood in the oven:

Preheat the oven to 275°F.

Place the leftover seafood on a lightly greased baking sheet or casserole dish, splash it with water, and cover it with foil.

Put the fish in the preheated oven and let it heat up for 10 to 15 minutes.

Make a New Meal with It:

Seafood dishes like shrimp and grits or gumbo can taste even better heated up the next day. Some fish, like leftover salmon, won’t hold up as well. These leftovers can easily be re-imagined into another meal.

Hearty leftover fish like salmon and tuna often taste better cold. You can put pieces of cold salmon in a salad or slice it up over a bagel with cream cheese. You can cut up a cold tuna steak and mix it with mayonnaise, lemon juice and capers to make a delicious tuna salad sandwich. Other types of leftover seafood can be used in recipes for fish cakes, crab cakes, chowder and soup.
