Review by Pasquino, a usually happy Tesco customer
I'm pretty sure I looked at the picture and clearly saw the word Scotland. I'm sure for I always look and I remember buying the 1kg size when I only needed 500g for the 500g picture clearly showed the word Norway. Trust me I love Norway, norwegian people and even norwegian tv series but... I find salmon from Norway usually unpleasant. This was no exception. To be fair, looking again at the description today it sais: farmed in Norway or Scotland and the picture I'm looking at is not the same I looked at last week. My mistake? Still this is no excuse for a poor quality product. It breaks when you touch it, it does not smell fresh and it's covered by (it actually floats in) a sticky substance. I washed it and, well seasoned and cooked, was somewhat edible and I did eat it (that's the reason for a 2 stars rating) but mainly for I was brought up to never throw food away and ... I do not have a cat.
Good value and very convenient.
Good value and very convenient. My wife likes Salmon I don't. She likes a decent sized piece. So I skin it which is very easy and cut it into 160 -170 g portions which are larger than shop bought portions. Then I freeze it and she has it whenever she wants.
Beautiful fresh fish at a very affordable price.
Took a chance and got this for xmas lunch. It was perfect! Will definitely have this again. Works out cheaper too. You could cut it into portions and freeze.
Will order again
Really good, fresh salmon and a good price.
Fantastic for cold smoking
I buy these at Christamas time. I cure and cold smoke this and give as gifts. Everbody loves it! Always good quality without any bones.
Fresh & tasty
Arrived well packed, fresh, w/o any smell, nice light-rose color. No small pieces included, just fine big boneless fillet. Great for roasting or salting. Preserved in salt we ate it w/o freezing after 5 days and it was delicious
Best quality salmon ever
This is the finest quality farmed salmon I have ever eaten. Two pieces grilled with lemon and butter, three pieces poached with dill, onion, carrot. Astonishing quality and value, used up the poached salmon in a lovely rice salad, wrapped chunks of it in seaweed, and made oriental dressing. No other supplier has approached anything like this quality and I have worked in a professional kitchen. I have no affiliation with Tesco.
Superb. We brought 2 instead of a whole boned salmon from a fishmongers. Cut into generous "steaks" and frozen immediately. The ones we have used have all been superb. Being a whole side much for gives proper steaks than a half side that is always the tail end. Great flavour and texture throughout and not a single bone. Will buy again
I have bought this many times and although it is good quality I have a problem with the skin not being descaled. This is not such a big problem if you don't eat the skin but if you like the skin avoid this product.
I expected to get a full side which was 1kg but I
I expected to get a full side which was 1kg but I got 3 small packs which amounted to 780g instead and got charged the same amount. The packs had a use by date of the 15th April. I opened them this evening, the 14th of April, to cook them and found that 2 of them smelt to high heaven and were obviously off. All-in-all a pretty poor experience.
