vacuum packing fish

Recommended Posts

Vacuum packing is great for fish, but sometimes the heat sealing machines fail to seal because of the fish juice getting in the seal area. At a recent agricultural show I saw a different system that uses re-usable ziplock bags. Each bag has a valve built into it and air can be removed using either a hand pump or an electric pump. I actually prefer the hand pump. There is a demo on this website. www.vacsealit.com.au

I am not in any way associated with this product. I believe there are similar systems marketed by other companies including ziploc.

The bags are fairly expensive but can be reused many times. On tip though. Don't use the bags for smoked fish unless you are going to reuse them with smoked fish. Its impossible to get all the smoke colour and smell out of the plastic.

I always wrap my fillets in glad wrap before I seal them. This stops the juice flowing out. I double seal as well.

Hi Mate

I just use a doubled over paper towel at the top infront of where you will seal it. Catches the juices before it can fowl up the seal.

Cheers
