If I'm not mistaken feeding fresh food is a parasite concern. It might not be a bad idea to cook it.

Anything I buy at the grocery store and I would eat is good enough for the fish. Cooking it reduces it nutrient content and also causes it to come apart in the water too fast. JMO

You can feed the fish uncooked food but freezing it first will kill off parasites. Better safe than sorry imho
