Re-freezing tuna steak

BeeZee Sep 16, 2009 02:43 PM

I know it's not optimal (not even close to optimal) but I had defrosted a tuna steak (vacuum sealed in plastic) in the fridge, realized we wouldn't be able to cook it, so I threw it back in the freezer. I know the texture will probably be a bit mushy from the re-freeze, but any other issues?
Guess I'm verifying that it will be safe to eat if re-frozen and re-defrosted.
I would use it in a highly seasoned application like fish taco so the flavor would be masked.

    totally safe, but it will be the texture that really suffers. it will be quite mushy. maybe think about making a paté or mousse.
