What part of a fish is the loin?

Thanks for that. Going to buy some of this

Is it farmed?

I can't see how they could farm it. Don't fish need water?

A fishy loin.

Am I a loin in thinking this cod piece is a tad naughty?

Its just a posh name for the 'thick bit'.

The fillet has been trimmed of the tail end and the belly flap has been removed,also the skin has been removed.This leaves a nice thick uniformed piece of cod with no waste

When I was young we used to get cod steaks - about an inch thick, cut across the fish and bone still in the middle. This was the nicest fish I ever remember, always perfectly white --- not like the half grey, watery stuff they sell now.

I'm not sure if you are joking but I have never tried to 'trick' anyone into clicking a link I have posted.So I will leave you with this snippet from Wiki

The Bombay duck or bummalo (Harpadon nehereus, Bengali: bamaloh or … The Bombay duck or bummalo (Harpadon nehereus, Bengali: bamaloh or loytta, Gujarati: bumla, Marathi: bombil: Bombeli, Sinhala) is, despite its name, not a duck but a lizardfish. It is native to the waters between Mumbai (formerly Bombay) and Kutch in the Arabian Sea, and a small number are also found in the Bay of Bengal. Great numbers are also caught in the South China Sea. The fish is often dried and salted before it is consumed, as its meat does not have a distinctive taste of its own. After drying, the odour of the fish is extremely powerful, and it is usually transported in air-tight containers. Fresh fish are usually fried and served as a starter. In Mumbai, Konkan and the western coastal areas in India this dish is popularly known as Bombil Fry.



The only reason I knew about Bombay Duck was it was served to my dad when he was in India with the RAF in the 1940's.He use to say how awful it tasted.:p

the loin of the fish really means lion meat!!!!!!!!!!!! LMFAO not really mate loin is the thickest part of the fish ie if you lie down a cod fillet the bottom thin part is the tail then you have the middle body then at the top is the thickest part so when you cut that off skin and bone it becomes a cod loin hope it helps

mate the freshest cod /haddock/ hake has pink flesh when fresh caught starts to turn white 2-3 days after being caught then a week after yellowy murky color i can say morrisons has the best fresh fish counters

does anybody know that cod and haddock in the summer months have worms in there flesh so u might end up eating worm meat trust me google it

I wonder how actually fresh is it.I mean how long from getting caught at sea to actually appearing on supermarket shelves.

The best freshest fish comes off day boats,but obviously if you don't live near where its landed you won't get any.We aren't all called 'Rick'

A fresh cod flesh is grey-ish or dirty white. Its never pink. Trust me, I was a fisherman for few years. When its cooked the flesh turns white. Even Salmon (free range one) is never that pink, just a slight peachy colour.
