My buddies want to have a fish fry tonight. I have some 5-6 lb cats that have been gutted/skinned/beheaded frozen that I didn't fillet. Whats the best way to thaw them out? Just sitting out room temp or soaking in some salt water? We are going to cook some jalapenos and purple onions in a big burner filled with oil to get the oil nice and flavored up and then dip the fish in a thick beer batter and deep fry them. Then use the jalepenos and onions on tacos!
