How do I prepare frozen fish?

jessicheese | Jan 27, 201112:19 PM     8

I love fish, but my husband doesn't eat it so I don't prepare it often. The extent of my fish capabilites would consist of sauteed shrimp, crab cakes, and salmon in the toaster oven. We recently purchases a large freezer and I'd love to get a few freezer packed fish filets from Trader Joe's but am embarrassed to say that I have no idea what to do with it! Here is what type of advice that I'm looking for:

When do you take it out of the freezer before preparing for a meal?
Do you cook from frozen or thaw first?
What method do you use and for how long?
Do you only prepare enough for that meal, or does it typically reheat well the next day?

I can cook many things well, but this frozen fish thing really gets me nervous. Any advice would be so greatly appreciated!!!
