Test Kitchen TipsTilapia, catfish, haddock and other lean types of fish may be frozen for up to 6 months. Oily fish, such as mackerel and grouper, shouldn’t be frozen for more than 3 months. Unless otherwise specified, Taste of Home recipes is tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired. Check out 50 of our best seafood dinner ideas.
