Too unreliable in quality! Have bought these on a couple of occasions as a substitute for cod, first packet ok but tasteless (to be expected I thought) but the second packet OMG at the end of cooking the first was just a chance of rubbery nothingness that swiftly lost its heat. Horrible won’t be buying again
Briiliant - my favourite
Really good quality , good size fillets and lovely flavour
Brilliant! Freezer staple.
Beautiful white flaky fish similar to cod. Best frozen fish we've tried - across different options at different shops. Oven bake as recommended. Brilliant! No unpleasant taste like you get with some others. Just like what id get from fish counter.
fresh (plain) tasting but seasoning and salt and a generous dash of oil makes this fillet bang! Cooked mine straight from frozen wrapped up with chilli spices and himalayan pick salt and coconut oil. The fish was tender, flaked beautifully and kept its shape. Have already added another bag to the weekly (more monthly coz of covid) shop.
Cat likes this a lot more that Basa from other sho
Cat likes this a lot more that Basa from other shops. Seems to contain less water and shrinks less compared to others. Not sure what it tastes like, but I can say the cat is happy with it.
Pretty tasteless. Why on earth are Tesco importing this fish to Scotland when we have much better quality & fresher fish. In general Tesco dies not offer enough local produce.
Bland unless treated right
Really bland on its own, on first impression I really wouldn't have recommended it. However, when Jerked overnight and grilled on a g.foreman style grill, finished with blowtorch(totally optional but enhances everything). Damn! It holds together where other fish sticks and flakes. Takes on flavours well. Cheap and works really well when treated right.
Basa will never be cooked in this house again
I was given one of these packs as a substitution for a pack of White fish (Pollock). I'd never heard of it, so cooked it as I do the Pollock. I cooled and dished it up as normal. The 2 cats were going nuts. I put the food in front of them, they sniffed and walked away. They have never done that with fish before. I ate some and totally agreed with them. Waste not want not, I gave the fish to the food waste consumer (Rottweiler), she ate it. She eats anything. I'll not be buying that fish again. I was in a Tesco shop this morning, no Pollock in the freezer, loads of Basa. I bought 2 packs of cod and 2 packs of haddock, there were not many packs of those in the freezer. A touch expensive but at least I'll be able to eat it too. PS the review will not let me post with zero stars, so I have to give 1 star. Fair I suppose as the Rottweiler ate it.
