Fresh News From the Coast!
We love it when you take our fresh fish and seafood along with you on your picnics, barbecues and any other summer dining events with friends and family.
That being said, we wanted to take a moment before the festivities begin to remind you of these FDA published serving guidelines once your seafood is cooked and ready to be enjoyed.
Never leave seafood or other perishable food out of the refrigerator for more than 2 hours or for more than 1 hour when temperatures are above 90ºF. Bacteria that can cause illness grow quickly at warm temperatures (between 40ºF and 140ºF).
Carry picnic seafood in a cooler with a cold pack or ice. When possible, put the cooler in the shade and keep the lid closed as much of the time as you can.
When it’s party time, keep hot seafood hot and cold seafood cold:
Divide hot party dishes containing seafood into smaller serving platters. Keep platters refrigerated until time to reheat them for serving.
Keep cold seafood on ice or serve it throughout the gathering from platters kept in the refrigerator.
From all of us at Motts Channel Seafood we wish you a happy and safe 4th of July weekend! We're open regular hours all weekend long!
