"Fish Fillets" - won't be cod or haddock then, possibly pollock?
#2
Tesco have the 200g packs at 2 for £2.

"Depending on season and catch area we use one of the following types of fish in this product ,Alaska Pollock, Saithe, Hoki, Hake, Cod, Haddock or Basa. Each of these white fish species has an aromatic, mild taste and a ,tender texture and therefore is an excellent choice for our Birds Eye Fish Fillets"

If it was cod or haddock surely it would be mentioned on the packaging as they are the more popular, so im'e guessing its one of the others.

Had some of these last week, wasn't expecting much from them but they were actually quite good. Nice fleshy fish and light crispy batter.

If you look next to the best before date, it has a letter. The letter corrisponds to the type of fish

And the code is? Now why would they want to conceal the information like this?

His point is that you can know what type of fish is being used because its not concealed.

It's not Iceland bashing - it's Birds Eye questioning.

I would guess Alaska Pollock

i can confirm that it is alaskan pollock this was the reason i stopped buying birdseye, pollock has hardly any taste to it in comparison to cod and haddock plus it costs about 20% of the cost of cod or haddock but this has never been reflected in the birdseye pices they still charge the same and kept very quiet about the change in the fish they use sorry but had to vote cold as i don't like pollock especially at the prices they charge.

p.s.

i have a friend that works in the birdseye factory in hull and he told me they were told if they are asked what fish they use they must answer i'm not sure or i don't know that shows how sneaky they are.

It's a stomach filler not an enjoyable eat. We're lucky we can be so fussy!

Used to be sold for the cat and would be fine with other fish in a fish pie as a 'filler' but it's not prime eating on its own.

If you get disappointing fish from the chippie it could well be pollock (whether they claim otherwise or not), eg my local does 'mini fish' at a good price but no claim that it's cod (or haddock). Others aren't so honest.

The A is pollock. If you look at the back it shows you what letter each fish is. Sorry to be vague hehehe

Well I picked up a couple of these last week one of each type, breadcrumbs and batter.

To be fair they are not awful but I wouldn't pay more than £1.75 and I certainly wouldn't feel that it was a good buy at that price.

Handy to have in the freezer for emergencies but not something that I would think about having for dinner by any stretch of the imagination.

Like most of these cheaper fish products there's always just a bit too much of the batter or breadcrumbs wrapped around them....

For the money, I prefer some of the fish products you find in the freezers at Aldi and Lidl.
