It's May, my fiddle head ferns are up, looking gorgeous. Then a snow storm. temperatures dropped to 30 and now my fiddle head ferns have serious frost damage. If I cut back the damaged fronds, will they grow back this season? They are an important part of my landscaping so I really hope I can get them recovered.

The damaged frond will not recover. They will produce new fronds. I would leave them until the new fronds appear. For appearance you can certainly trim back to eliminate the damaged parts.
