The fish was packaged in an insulated cold bag which was loosely taped up and shoved in inside a plastic bag which smelled so fishy, I had to throw out the packaging out immediately. After removing the fish from the package, I realised the fillets still had scales on them. I do expect fillets to be descaled for easy preparation. My recipe requires the fish to be marinated for 3 days so I cannot comment on the quality of the fish but given the smell - I am not optimistic about the taste.
Fresh and sweet fish. Problem is that you need to descale the entire skin yourself. Not worth the trouble.
The black cod fillet was full of bones which is not what I expected. The texture is good but dealing with the bones was an experience which detracted from the enjoyment of the miso cod.
Family favourite. Just steam it with soy sauce and lots of fried garlic and spring onions n coriander and it’s yummy
Lovely texture. Braised the sablefish in soya sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, oil, spring onion and garlic, which catches some of the fish's healthy fats and makes a delicious gravy.
