Yep what I was thinking. It will go slimey and not be crisp when you dethaw it but wet. That's probally okay if you're going to cook it, as that's pretty much what cooking does anyway, but if you wanted to eat it like salad than I'd say a big ol' no.

I will buy some tommorow and put it my freezer to find out for you.

Give me a couple of days and I will let you know what happens

LilBigBug I don't know if this works or not, but I've heard blanching it (boiling in water for about 3 minutes) helps.
