they had sea bass or sea bream on offer a few months ago before xmas for about £1.00 and they wouldn't fillet it for me.; they said due to the special offer price. I was a bit miffed to be honest as they wasn't even busy, just me at the counter.

What i did learn is what a PIG of a job it is trying to do it yourself, i made a right mess of the thing!!!

Very tasty though but boy if you can get it fillet it, do it.

They do fillet them for you - if they refuse get a manager - its their job after all:thumbsup:

Sea bass is nice roasted whole - meaning you just need to get rid of the guts and scale it. Still a hassle - I'd rather have fishmonger do it! - but less scope to make a dogs dinner of things than when filleting.
#16
Hot. And as you can see, I shall be filleting these myself. :-)

Here's what sea bass can grow to:

Sea bass is probably one of the easiest whole fish to prepare. I find that fishmongers never descale them properly and normally have to add some finishing touches myself.

gutted no Morrisons near me as love sea bass and would have grabbed a good amount at that price

pretty sure its 3 per customer. But you just go twice if you want more - I dont think they ever care a sale is a sale to them.
#26
Morrisons have the best fish counter of all the supermarkets in my area.

Very hot deal!!!

Is it so hard to fillet? I don't think so...I've done it before. I didn't get perfectly shaped fillets, but managed to get most of the meat off the bone.

You do need a sharp knife.
#29
If you don't mind it frozen - and why would you - Aldi usually have it for about £4 a KILO!! Seems to change in price quite frequently...

This deal really isn't that great...
#30
Great deal, will be getting some. Think they will be farmed ones from Greece.

HUGE difference between the quality of fresh and frozen fish/meat in terms of quality. The freezing process damages the tissue and changes the texture.

Isn't fish frozen on the ships anyway?

Has anyone determined exactly how big they are?

Morrisons say they never freeze fish on their fishmonger counter.

They're about 8 inches long. Ridiculously small.

Yeah but they're caught out at sea days from shore and stored in containers filled with ice? Unless they're farmed? Oh I don't know.

I've never eaten sea bass from a supermarket. I usually try and catch plenty in the summer and then freeze them to eat over the winter. It's a beautiful fish, especially when it's steamed. It's not too hard to fillet them either, there's plenty of guides on the internet, you just need a very sharp knife.

I did get tempted to buy some when I ran out a few winters ago, I think it was Asda I went in and they were tiny! They were farmed in Dieppe too or something..

I'm sure Morrisons make a habbit of producing over 400 banners, spending thousands on tv/newspaper advertising to **** people off with a tiny fish, 'cos that would be good business wouldn't it?:whistling:

Not necessarily. Morrisons, Sainsburys and Waitrose source a lot of their fish from smaller day boats. It does mean that bad weather impacts supply more than with the trawlers (less by-catch, smaller frozen reserves and the small boats can't withstand the weather conditions) but the fish is fresh and the impact to the marine environment is lower.

It's a good thing and a bad thing. Having lots of little boats go out is a lot more expensive than a few large boats. The supermarkets can afford to offset this cost while keeping prices competitive by buying in bulk, but independent fish mongers can't do it without having high prices.

They're farmed. Most likely from Greece or Spain. Wild bass are expensive, vary in size and aren't available in near enough supply to put on an offer like this.

I'm sure they justify it as being "portion size". Personally I find the farmed fish to be too much for one, but not enough for two. I guess that could be deliberate, means people have to buy more.
