Can you freeze leftover salmon? Yes, you can freeze leftover cooked salmon. The USDA says it can stay frozen for up to 3 months. – Cut the fish into serving sizes using a sharp knife. – Wrap the fish first in some parchment paper (this keeps it from sticking to the bag)and then place in a zipped lock freezer storage bag. – Squeeze out all the air from the bag before sealing it. – Label and date the bag. – Store it flat in the freezer and be sure to not put heavy things on the fish before it freezes (or it will get squished).
