OK, I'm looking for the best method to thaw it and how long I should do it. I'm thinking the fridge but for how long?
I recently caught my first Steelhead (large rainbow trout) and I'm not sure I was ready for such a large fish. It's 32" long and has a 15" girth. I'm assuming it's close to 12 pounds. I immediately put it on ice and gutted it when I got home. I wasn't sure what to do from there so I wraped it up and put it in my freezer. If I could do it all over again, I would have cleaned and fileted the fish, then freeze it. What should I do now? Can I thaw it then filet it? If I do that I can't freeze them again. Should I just invite 10 of my friends over and cook it all at once? What do you think?
