usually if i can't get to something for a meal, i will either marinade and put back into fridge or better yet, bake it. while it might not be the recipe or use you wanted for a meal, you can always reserve it to serve over a salad. i always buy more fish than we eat for a meal because i love left over fish for a lunch salad. salmon and especially its fat, is highly perishable and prone to off flavors pretty quickly. i wonder if not cooking it shortly after defrosting will affect the texture? anyone have any ideas on that?

The best advice you'll ever get on storing fish in the frig:
If has saran packaging, remove and wrap in paper.Put it ON a bed of ice and keep in the bottom rear left corner of the frig.2-3 days. Ditto meats and poultry. I can't tell you how amazing that technique is; changed my life. really.

Still tasty says 1-2 days. I agree. Fish is very perishable.
