Frozen food thawing question
My apologies if this is on the wrong board. I purchased Emeril's 'Classic Louisiana Crab Cakes' and the directions regarding thawing are very unclear. If I deep fry, it states to thaw; if I want to 'cook' them in a little butter or oil it doesn't say. I wouldn't have thought they should be thawed before cooking but I don't know if I should or for how long. So far, I'm really disappointed in the directions. I'd really appreciate any feedback, esp. as this is seafood as far as safety. Thanks so much!
