In b4 farmed fish and not grass fed, this is evident by the frown on that fish's face. Lol

Heat added

I can't remember exactly, but I chose the largest/freshest fish and te whole thing was maybe £22-23 (I think)
Sounds expensive, but unlike poultry or red meat, there's zero fat or large bones - and it's good for you

EDIT: of course the discarded head/fins/bones weigh a fair bit, but you're walking away with 100% food

You pay for the whole Salmon not just the fillets,it's up to the customer whether they want the rest of it after the fillets are off.
Personally we have it de-scaled,filleted and de-boned and take the rest of the fish home,a few minutes in a covered pan and there's loads of fish to take off and use in a quiche or jacket spud ect

Sainsburys did the same deal over the Christmas period. The good thing is that it's absolutely fresh the bad thing is after the useless bits are discarded it costs about the same as their usual salmon fillets. The good outstrips the bad though imo.

The bits make a delicious fish broth/soup (needs seasoning and herbs) and is worth at least £5, good enough for meal for two when eaten with pasta, potatoes, bread.

Please let us know how much did it cost per kg just with the fillets, but without the head, tail, bones, scales and 'white' bits near the head. Tesco was selling the sides of salmon (without the bits mentioned) for £10.00 per kg previously, just wondering which is the better value.

Zero fat? Fish has a hell of a load more than most poultry...

The kind of fat that you needn't worry about - some people actually buy it in capsule form

i wasn't aware of this and me and my partner both are with Halifax so thank you for making me aware :-)

not a fan of salmon but its a good deal so voting hot.

My halifax offers me 5% off at Morrisons not 10%

I don't think they like you...

I get 10% at argos vs the 5% shown above.

In some cultures the 'useless bits' are considered a real delicacy and in the West we now have woken up to the fact that virtually every bit of the animal (or fish) can be used and it is sold (whereas I used to be able to get fish heads and bones (for stock) cheaply or often for free but now they cost almost as much as some cuts of meat ! The head actually contains the tastiest bits of meat and is the healthiest part of the fish ! I still laugh at the people who will only buy meat and fish when it 'doesn't look like an animal anymore' and comes in a cellophane package - back home - if it 'aint moving, we 'aint buying !!!

I am with the Halifax and would really like to know what you guys are on about in terms of money back as they (Morrisons) have just stopped giving out money off vouchers and the £10 off your 4th shop which was one of the reasons I went further out to shop at Morrisons !

Strange enough, doesn't have any offers for me under extras...

I have a Halifax account and the cash back is always different. My missus often has different deals to me, sometimes worse, sometimes better. It's best to keep checking until something good comes along.

Is the cash back on credit card spending or debit card?

The head makes an excellent main ingredient for fish head curry. Even if you don't really eat the head it still contributes to the overall taste of the dish

My local Morrison's (derby) are still giving out the vouchers but you only have to collect 2 tokens and get £10 off your 3rd shop.

Good deal - bought a 3kilo fish and I'd say the two fillets are easily over a kilo each so still worth it - one for the freezer and one for Fridays curry :-)
