Reheating Instructions and Videos

DIRECTIONS FOR REHEATING PRE-MADE MEALS

Please be mindful that your chefs have already cooked most all of your meals to perfection. All you will need to do is reheat them to your own desired palatable temperature. (Reheating times may be tripled for Family Meal portions)

                        

 Stovetop Reheating- RECOMMENDED and EASY!

Let your Pre-Made Paleo meals thaw under refrigeration. Remove meals from the container (tray or bag) and place your protein in a medium size frying pan with water or desired cooking oil/fat. Cover tightly with a lid to heat through for 3 minutes. Remove protein or add vegetable side to same pan. Reheat vegetables for 1-2 minutes to just heat through, and serve meal together. (If sauce from entrée dehydrates during reheating, add a little water and continue reheating)

           CAUTION: In all instances, the product may be hot!!

Oven Reheating -

If this is your preference, you may remove meals from packaging, place into a baking pan and place in the oven at a temperature of 275 degrees. In most cases, this will require 8-12 minutes of reheating for proteins and 5-7 minutes for vegetables. Temperatures above 275 degrees run the risk of overcooking.

Microwave Reheating-

Yes. You can steam cook your meal quickly and easily with a microwave oven. Most of our proteins will take about a 45 second heat up in the microwave. If they are not completely heated through, add an additional 15-20 seconds at a time.  (*For best results, microwaving food is not recommended when you have other resources such as stove-top, oven or toaster oven available. Try using the 50% power level as well.) 

It is recommended that you use a microwave safe dish. DO NOT Microwave in the black trays provided.Most meals may be reheated thoroughly in under a minute. Please be careful to not overcook any meals, particularly thinly sliced proteins. Often times, a damp paper towel placed over your entrée will provide a better reheating experience. Be careful to not Re-Cook your meals that are likely already cooked to perfection. You are simply intending to re-heat to your desired palatable temperature.

Cooking directions for most fish entrées: (Always thaw your fish first)

For a quick and easy clean up, place a piece of clean foil on a cookie sheet or sheet pan, followed by the fish. For fish selections with seasoning, use the desired amount of seasoning on the fish prior to placing it in the oven. If the fish you ordered comes with a glaze, we recommend using about half of the glaze on the fish prior to placing it in the oven. This will leave some sauce to add after if you prefer. Add or detract according to your own preference. Each fish is listed below with the corresponding temperature and time at which it is to be cook. Species specific directions may be seen here.
