Stick to ice cubes!
Just about the worst fish EVER. Tasteless, pointless, and with very questionable origins, I cannot believe that Tesco goes anywhere near this ghastly product. Ice cubes have more taste, and are much safer. Throw it back!
This is a freshwater fish, a Vietnamese strain of Catfish and has been banned in the past by some international markets. Environmentally speaking, how can Tesco justify transporting this from the other side of the world? Given the distance it travels, how fresh can this product be?

Lovely white fish, thicker than sea bass, and tasty. Served with green salad and tomatoe, and alternative creamy mash and green beans.
Great for the right recipe
I love Basa, it's probably not what you'd serve at a dinner party, but I use it for midweek meals. It perfect if you're going to flavour with spices or I like to use it for homemade fish fingers. It isn't the most flavourful fish to serve as is.

I bought this for the 1st time this week. It was a very pleasant surprise - a 'meaty' fish with a delicate flavour - I thought it was really good value for the price.... I pan- fried it and served with courgettes, dill and samphire for what felt like a very quick, special lunch.
I thought I would give this fish a try after it was delivered to me by accident. I phoned customer services and I got a .70p refund as I had actually ordered Sea Bass. The Basa looked beautiful and I couldn't wait to cook it. It cooked well in my cast iron skillet, it's flesh was quite flaky so it is best not to move it around a lot. It didn't have the fresh smell of the sea which I found odd. Before I served this up I tasted a small morsel on the tip of my fork and found it had a very weird after-taste (it didn't taste like fish at all). Alas, these 2 beautiful looking Skinless & Boneless Basa Fillets are now residing in my bin and I still have the weird after-taste in my mouth after brushing my teeth.
Waste of money/terrible
I tried this fish and it does not taste anything like fish. I did not eat it, just threw it away!!
Out of Date
Received these in my delivery on 24th June described as having 2+ days. These were substituted in place of the smoked Bassa I had ordered. When I went to use them the following day I found that the use by date was 24th June. They had been properly stored from when I received them but the smell was dreadful and they were clearly off.
