For example: Fish cooks so quickly that it is sometimes better to begin cooking while still slightly frozen. This will require a standing time to allow the centre to thaw.
HOW TO USE defrosting guide * Food to be defrosted should be placed in a suitable microwave proof container and placed uncovered on the glass tray. * If necessary, shield small areas of meat or poultry with flat pieces of aluminum foil. This will prevent thin areas from becoming warm during defrosting.
