Morrisons fresh whole salmon is half price again - £5.47kg 'till 5th April

My local Morrison's fishmongers are very helpful. They will always top and tail and cut a whole salmon into 6 double portions, seal in 6 individual bags and put in a large bag with the whole salmon price attached

I've found that Morrisons fishmongers will always fillet and cut up a whole salmon whereas many Asda customers claim that they won't.
For me, this is worth the extra

The bones put me off. I will never buy unfillited Salmon again.
Not votin Op.

Well Asda did it for me. But if you want edible portions without the head, tail, bones etc. then you need to add about 75% of the 'whole' salmon cost to get the edible portion cost - so @£4 per kg = ~£7 and @£5.47 per kg = ~£9 per kg
Hope that is of help to those of you without a cat!

Poor quality. Take asda bakers and compare it to morrisons. No comparison.

Asda will fillet the salmon if they have enough staff and time to do it and if you ask nicely.

Good Maths Mate Well done....

Well actually it's not that good maths as I just recalculated the £5.47 per kg and it's actually around £9.50 per edible portion!

I like costco salmon boneless ( note comment 6 ) and skinless also nice thick and chunky £11.99 kg

I reckon dead fish is dead fish and the cheaper the better -never had a bad piece of dead salmon from asda or a whole one for that matter, you just cant please some people

I prefer filleted, portioned and repacked dead fish and I can't find anything similar to this on the Asda website

Agree! I loved watching the fishmonger use the mallet to drive the knife into the thick salmon - it is almost an art form! Hurray to the Asian Fishmonger in Becontree branch!

What does a skilled job like fish monger, baker or butcher get paid in Morrisons or asda?

Can someone expire this deal so that I can say I'm gutted I missed it.

And if you do a little dance, get on your hands and knees, and slip them a couple of quid.

It's fine Asda advertising salmon at £3.97 kg...but when I went in on Saturday morning for whole salmon,I was told all 9 salmon had been sold first thing in the morning.
What kind of deal is it,if they only get 9 fish for the whole day.

ive found these (asda)(morrison) farmed salmon to be tasteless compared to the wild salmon ive bought from tesco ......melts in ur mouth although a tad more expensive ....well worth it was on at 9.99kg a few week ago.....cant seem to find any anywhere past week....im gagging for some now

But Asda never clean up the bones or cut your fish and belive me: you don't want to do this at home with a whole salmon.

fill yer boots with a big fish

May be Asda, definitely not Morrison's Salmon fish.Very lovely, tender and succulent.

Fishes, cakes or chops.

Only sockeye for me.

There was plenty of whole salmon stock in my local Morrison's today - including some in boxes behind the fish counter that hadn't even been weighed or bagged.

I just asked for a £14 -£15 one and the helpful fishmonger, after weighing, found one, filleted it, cut it into 12 portions, bagged into 6 sealed double portion bags and put the contents into a large sealed bag for checkout.

The pre-bagged whole salmon already had the tail section missing, so for the price conscious, you can discount that small weight in the labelled price

The benefits (or not) of the Asda deal have already been discussed and dissected on this thread, apparently (on request) unlike the Asda whole salmon - when it's available

Not nearly as much as they should i was a baker for safeway/Morrisons 20 yrs and it's hard graft ,and all the oven and prover work was by memory not timers like they have these days wasn't even an extra 50p an hour extra

Well asda don't train their staff to be fishmongers anymore so the trained staff are in short supply. I can serve on the counter but cannot fillet the fish. This can be quite frustrating to the public. As for how much do the trained staff get paid, the same as any other colleague

sainsburys whole salmon is £6 per kilo at the mo, not as cheap as morrisons, but there isn't one near where I live. they filleted one for me yesterday, and i thought they did a good job. tasty fish too

Came across these today at Morrisons, sealed in a bag in the cabinets next to the fresh fish counter. They are gutted and of course need butchering yourself. I bought a £7.70 one and had a go at filleting it at home, you really do need a sharp knife but it went pretty well and I ended up with 2 very large sides of salmon which prepacked would've cost a fortune. Just had some fried for lunch and it was as good as any other i've had.

The little white threads you can see in some fresh salmon puts me off. Sometimes they wiggle....

If you don't fancy filleting it yourself you can select the salmon from the shelf, take it to the fish counter and ask the nice Morrisons fishmonger to fillet the fish to whatever spec you require and then kindly re bag and seal the portions up ready for the freezer.

No longer fresh mate...!

If I freeze it straight away it's always fresh enough for me when I eventually use it
