Communication from enquiry to delivery was smooth and easy. Was very satisfied with the products received were properly packed and there were no unpleasant or any fishy smell.
Great subtle taste, really fresh and not at all like the European mackerel. Lovely texture too, cooks up very soft and flakes in large pieces. However I ordered the fish filleted and there were quite a lot of bones, it's ok for me but I definitely would not recommend to serve to toddlers or babies because of this.
Made fish paste for the first time and tasted ok, not fishy.
Baked off the steaks for puree-ing to add to Laksa Selegie. Fish was fresh so the laksa was not at all 'fishy'.
