After cooking it shrank a lot. Also noticed it is caught in NE Atlantic but is packed as far away as China. Will not be buying again.
Why from China?
I have been buying Tesco cod fillets for years, but I won't buy these. Why are they coming from China?
No more Tesco frozen fish for me
I bought Tesco frozen cod , haddock , wild pink salmon for years , but like the previous reviews not keen on fish caught in the Atlantic sea and shipped to China for packing. Tesco , l would like wild fish , e.g not farmed , caught and packed nearer to these islands. At the present time going elsewhere for my frozen fish
This product has travelled to far
i refuse to buy fish that has travelled all the way from China. Come on Tesco, try to source from nearer to home please
Cod that's been around the world and back
This product is good - but I looked at the North East Atlantic off coast Norway....so far so good ...then say it was packed in China. Come on Tesco how can you find this acceptable to have something go half way around the world from it's source and then bring it back...madness !!
taste wasn't good
Very poor quality
The taste and texture of this cod is very poor. It doesn't actually taste of anything, and the texture is hard. Cod should be soft and flaky. I notice that the fish is caught in the Atlantic then shipped to China for packing, and I wonder how many times it has been frozen and defrosted, not to question the logic of shipping a fish from these waters half way round the world and back again. My recommendation is not to buy the product.
i can't believe its cod
I can not believe that these were actual cod i defrosted mine and had trouble breaking it down for a Thai fishcake recipe it didn't flake and was very sinewy, i have used a lot of cod and never seen anything like this.
Do not buy this it is caught in NE Atlantic but pa
Do not buy this it is caught in NE Atlantic but packed in CHINA..
It's frozen, hence the water! It's all fish too!
It's all actual pieces of Fish, as against Breaded which is at best 65%. Cheaper breaded is only about 55%, and not even pieces of fish, but somehow manufactured from small bits. Unfortunately, the fillets are quite small, so we share three pieces, wrapped together in well oiled foil and baked for about 25 minutes. True, it does release a lot of water, but one expects that since it is deep frozen (doh!). Just fold up the foil afterwards and chuck it in the pedal bin - simples! Delicious with McCains Home oven chips, half a tomato and a mushroom on the same baking pan. Vegetables as you like on the hob or steamed bag in microwave. Lovely Jubbly!
