Shame I didn’t read the reviews before buying. AWFULL! Grey in colour, disgustingly smelling thing, nothing like hake at all. DO NOT BUY.

Had to thrown them away. Had a terrible taste and smell. Obviously something wrong with the batch. Perhaps allowed to thaw out and refrozen.
Comes all the way from China - too many food miles

much better alternative to Arctic pollack
I have not seen this elsewhere but it is a much better product (in terms of texture, flake & flavour) than Arctic pollack for fish soup or pie. Note that it is not the same species as Atlantic hake but not as different as the pollack is from its local cousin
Good value if it tasted nice
I bought this as I do like hake normally, but don't eat fish often, so thought it would be useful to have in the freezer. The portions are a great size - But unfortunately I really didn't like the flavor. It was pretty flavorless actually. I ended up chucking the other 4 fillets
Not found everywhere.
Hake is a strongish tasting fish...oily...if you dont like a strong taste then dont buy it....but fish is fish!
Don't buy this.
Small print under the 500g weight says "including ice glaze". When you have dried it out you end up with 375 g of v thin bits of fish. Hake sounds familiar but this is from the Pacific and "produced in China". No perceptible taste. I wouldn't buy again.
Cooks up fine.
Great. Cook these regularly either as part of a curry or baked in foil. Tasty moist fish. Prefer it to cod.
