Should I cut fish before or after cooking?

Asked: Chris Vandervest, Last Updated:

When cooking fish that will be served hot, we recommend portioning before you cook. This way, you'll avoid the difficulty of slicing the fish when it's hot and fragile. When cooking fish that will be served chilled, such as for our Salmon 104 °F dish, it's better to do the final portioning after cooking and chilling.
