So after you buy your sushi grade fish, you freeze it at -20c for 7 days. How do you properly defrost it? Just take it out and leave it in the fridge?

The freezing by the supplier is to eliminate any parasites, etc., and should already be done if it is being sold as properly processed to be consumed raw. To answer your question about thawing, yes in the refridgerator is the best way to do that. Also, if you let if defrost enough that you can easily slice it, each individual piece will thaw really quickly as you are preparing it for consumption. Hope this helps!
