Tips for storing dried seafood

海味乾貨儲存秘笈

When you buy seafood, most of it is not eaten in a short time. The uneaten food must be properly stored to prevent the final ingredients from spoiling, which is a waste of money and effort.

Why are some dried seafood prone to mold?

Because ingredients with higher protein content (such as dried shrimps and dried fish) are more easily decomposed into nutrients by bacteria, bacteria will multiply in a short period of time when encountering hot and humid weather. In addition, if the humidity of the food storage environment is higher than the moisture content of the food, a "water absorption" reaction will occur, which may cause the food to deteriorate.

How to store fish maw and sea cucumber?

Fish maw is most afraid of moisture and insects. If it is very dry, it can be placed in a dense container, add food moisture-proof agent, and add a few star anise to help repel insects. Sea cucumbers can be placed in a dense container, added with food moisture-proofing agent, placed in a cool, dry place, or placed in the refrigerator to extend the shelf life.

 

Other dried seafood can be stored according to the following guidelines:

A cool, dry place is suitable for storing dry ingredients, and they should be packed in tight bags/boxes/bottles. Add food moisture-proofing agent to avoid sunlight. It is better if it can be vacuumed or placed in a vacuum-tight box. Ingredients rich in protein or fat can be placed in the refrigerator or ice tray to extend their shelf life.
