Taste gone bad
quality has sadly gone down a lot, I love meat but could barely eat one fillet. Please can Tesco look into this
Fed up with tail ends
I order salmon fillets every week and got really fed up with getting tail ends, in spite of adding a note ‘NOT tail ends, please’, which seemed to be ignored by the picker. These cuts shouldn’t be sold at the same price, as in my opinion they’re just inferior to the middle cuts, with hardly any meat. Anyway, I’ve changed tack and am now putting a note saying ‘middle cuts please, NOT tail ends’ and whether I’ve just been lucky, I don’t know, but for the last three weeks I have got what I’ve asked for! This wouldn’t be a problem if Tesco supplied what is pictured - middle cuts of salmon and sold tail ends separately….
All that smells bad is not necessarily 'off'.
Always good. I noted some people reported it smelled bad when they unpacked it. Many vac packed foods can take on a strong smell. With the salmon just rinse under cold water and pat dry with kitchen towel, it will be fine. Try dusting with Chinese 5 spice cook in foil, in the oven, as per instructions and serve with the Egg fried rice (with a handful of frozen peas added to the rice). Brilliant.
So nice and tasty... Try
What's gone wrong here? We have often enjoyed salmon from Tesco - its on my favourite products list so we buy it at almost every order. But suddenly the quality has gone through the floor. Last week flavoursome dark pink salmon as usual. This week pale and tasteless - and I mean TOTALLY tasteless. I shall not be buying again.
The salmon was badly off & smelly
We opened the pack of Salmon Fillets 3 days after home delivery and 2 days before the use by date. It had been in our fridge's coldest compartment the whole time, but it stank when opened. Not only that, but the 2 pieces were the very thin tail end and discoloured too - a far cry from the picture on the label! We've bought Tesco salmon fillets many times before without problem, but this clearly wasn't "Expertly Selected for Freshness & Quality". We threw it away and got a refund from Tesco.
Very nice but..
Love these with pots, peas and white or parsley sauce. Sometimes get the "tails" delivered, but these are best not fried per the cooking instructions but poached skin on in simmering water. However, the tails have more skin area so yes when cooked you do end up with a little less edible salmon.
bought salmon last week .it was awful went to take it off the skin only to find there was so much grey matter to the bottom that there was tiniest amount of pink meat but couldnt eat it due to grey matter
Not what I was expecting
Disappointed was expecting fillets in my home delivery ended up with tail ends
