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.
Brushed with butter, seasoned and pan fried. Very
Brushed with butter, seasoned and pan fried. Very fishy almost mackerel flavour, very nice
Absolutely awful fish! I was so hesitant after reading all of the reviews (sadly only after purchasing!) but I went ahead anyway. I made some fish tacos, even with plenty of spices and seasonings the fishy taste was over powering. Absolutely vile. It was all mushy and not firm in the slightest. Loads of black and grey bits on the fish which looked very unappetising. I will never be buying this again, the rest is going to the cat.
Awful, cooked to mush and dreadful taste. Avoid!
Brilliant for an easy (lazy) tray bake meal.
Love these. Always try to have some of these in the freezer, as they are so easy to do. Can do them in an 'Italian tray bake' with peppers, tomatoes, onions & anything else knocking around the fridge/cupboard. When it coat/brush with oil, take their advice, I don't know what the oil adds to them, but they're grim without it.
Will become a future favourite
First time of trying hake fillets & loved it, as they have a true fishy flavour. Stronger flavour than say cod or pollock. I seasoned then baked individually in parcels.
Considering the brilliant new freezing techniques for fish today this was shockingly bad. It was grey and stringy. Taste-wise, it could have been anything! Fillets were covered with frosty slush when extracting from the bag which indicates the age of the fish was quite old. This standard is strictly for the pussycats!
The fish was tasteless and colourless. Worst fish
The fish was tasteless and colourless. Worst fish ever tasted. I would prefer fish from a sustainable source within UK waters. I had to throw away cooked product, family disappointed with Tea tonight. Normally we love fish ...........
Not good. Tried to cook 2 different ways and both was terrible
