Do tilapia breaded fillets have to be defrosted before cooking?

If they came in a box, I would read the directions on the box as for heating. The fish may already be cooked, especially if they are already breaded. If no directions came with the packaging, and the fish have been in the freezer for some time, I would find something else to eat. In my opinion, fish have to be flash frozen to keep the cells in the meat from breaking. When the cells break from slow freezing, the fish meat is 'mushy' and can 'go bad' quicker.
