Defrosting in the Oven

hanguolaohu | Oct 20, 200807:35 PM     16

I'm a bachelor and end up freezing meats because I cannot get eat them fast enough on my own. The problem I keep encountering is I get hungry but don't plan my weekly menu accurately, so I don't have the luxury of time to defrost in the fridge. I also would prefer to avoid using my microwave to defrost. I'm about to eat some frozen salmon, should I just defrost it in the oven at 200 degrees and once it melts turn the heat up to 350? I tried cooking frozen salmon on the stovetop but the outside was burning while the core of the salmon remained uncooked. I would appreciate any advice you guys could offer. You can tell that I'm not an experienced cook :-p

Thanks,
Alexander
