Fish fillets and calamari(squid rings) can be bought already breaded and ready to fry. Crabmeat isavailable pre-cooked and removed from the shell, a process that is quite tedious todo. Buying and measuring ingredients for recipes is also made easier because youknow exactly how much you are getting as opposed to fresh wherein there’s a lot ofloss from peeling, trimming, etc. Using a frozen product doesn’t necessarily mean you are cutting corners orcompromising quality.
