I was in the grocery store yesterday, getting some peel and eat shrimp, and I noticed that a couple of their fish labels said "refreshed". Any ideas what this means? Thanks!
It means that it came in frozen and they thawed it.
Gee, that is a scam. unless it specifically says "fresh" i assume all grocery store fish was frozen then thawed. ;-)thx.
Even 'fresh' has often been frozen. Which is a good thing unless you live right near the ocean where it was caught.
something I wouldn't buy or knowingly eat!
Depending on where you live and what kind of fish it was, it would certainly be much better than fish that had never been frozen.
Problem is that since many don't question what "refreshed" means they may assume it hasn't been frozen- then buy some and refreeze it which shouldn't be done.
