Fish & Seafood/Freezing seafood bisque
Can I freeze a corn and seafood bisque after I cooked it. Have some leftover. The seafood was fresh frozen and thawed But now coked in bisque. If I can't I won't be able to serve it again until wed night and it is will initially be served on Monday night. Help
Hi Nancy. You should have no problem freezing the bisque. I often make batches of soups and bisques and freeze them in containers for future use. They should freeze for a month or two; if they develop ice crystals, they've probably been in the freezer too long and have lost some quality. Though not inedible or unsafe, they would not be as good.
I like to use zip lock freezer bags for soup. Place the bag in a large container that will hold the bag and fold the top of the bag over the rim of the container all the way around. Pour the cooled soup 3/4 of the way up the bag. Unfold the top and seal it 90% of the way, then carefully squeeze the top to get any air out, then finish sealing the bag. Making sure it's sealed completely, lay it down in your freezer on something flat and let it freeze until sturdy, then store it in any position. The flat bags makes it easier and quicker to thaw out.
Thanks for the question,
