The meat was nicely pounded. Unfortunately when i saw the fish head and bones, I see that the fish eyes were red and the fish was probably not that fresh. It explained the strong fishy smell.
I haven't consumed the product yet, but was happy to find pure fish paste for sale. And also the fish head included in the package was a nice surprise.
Very fresh fish. Bone made sweet soup. Definitely will buy again
Very fresh. Was surprised that they even packed the fish bone which I used for soup stock. Really good.
I didn't know that it was not seasoned. I used to get fish paste from Tiong Bahru. It is slightly salted and is bouncy on taste. I am pretty disappointed the fish paste I got is purely fish meat. The first bag was wasted .
