How to Reheat Restaurant Fried Seafood

By Zora Hughes

Your eyes may have been bigger than your stomach when you ordered the huge fried seafood platter. But don't let all your leftovers go to waste. Ask for a carry-out bag and take the rest home to enjoy later. However if you reheat fried food the wrong way, the breading will get soggy and fall off your seafood. You can enjoy your leftovers crispy and hot, tasting nearly as good as when they were first served by carefully reheating in the oven.

Avoid reheating fried seafood in the microwave as it will become soggy.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Place the fried seafood on a broiler pan. Using a broiler pan allows the oil that will come out of the food when heated to drain away from the food.

Step 3

Place in the heated oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve the reheated fried seafood while still hot.
