How do you cook frozen fish fillets?

Frying frozen fish fillets will only take you a few minutes. From the freezer, transfer the fish fillets to the refrigerator overnight, or let them cool at room temperature.

Set the right temperature, 380ºF-390ºF for 10 minutes until cook through. To ensure even cooking, flip them halfway with tongs.
