Got one last time it was on offer it weighed just over 3kg whole and I ended up with two whole sides weighing just under 1100g each. The fishmonger filleted them whilst I did my shopping.

They are farmed and you can keep the head and bones if you use them for other things otherwise works out roughly
£15 for 2 x 1kg salmon sides is great value imho. They are great for curing your own salmon as well.

Would be better to buy the frozen salmon from Iceland which works out to be the around the same price per kg and is wild. Wild is better than farmed, Generally whatever animal you eat you want them to be eating a diet that is closest to what they naturally eat. Farmed fish are just given whatever makes them biggest the fastest and that does not make for a nutritionally beneficial fish. You may say this is fresh, but do note fresh fish is just frozen fish that has been defrosted.

It’s roughly a 1/3 off the weight once it’s de-boned & headed .

If you want it deboned/beheaded by them then no problem, but they'll charge you for the whole fish. They won't weigh it after it's been prepared.
Thank youu
Great been waiting for this!

I agree that Iceland frozen salmon is convenient. I personally like the perceived fattiness and oilyness I feel when I cut up the "fresh" salmon as I find the Iceland frozen salmon rather dry.
Brilliant just in time my last lot has now run out.....is this on until xmas?

Judging by the Christmas theme on the ad i would say so but it also says while stocks last so maybe not.
Can this be frozen?
39109372-aSUFE.jpgthey do have them filleted ready on trays too

If you go to morrisons around lunch time on xmas eve they normally heavily discount all of the fresh meats due to them being closed on christmas day, got loads of stuff last year.
Just been to Morrison there is one salmon left but there is no discount on it. Do anyone know when is the promotion start and is it nationwide? Thank you x
i do not know there is some thing fishy about this
Cant be sure about the Iceland salmon but wild salmon from Alaska is a no no. They swim right through the fukushima radiation plume on their way to alaska. Alledgedly Plenty of tumours found in some of them . Better off with the Scottish | Norway farmed even with its dubious feeding techniques.

No evidence for that whatsoever. Obviously if you feel more comfortable not eating them that is your choice, but all the research suggests it is absolutely fine and, if anything, better than farmed salmon.

I can’t find either with the link, I tried to search from google with keywords Morrison Black Friday, it’s work in Morrison blog website.

Think it’s nearer equivalent £7.50 kilo after bones and head removed as you are paying £5 for each 2/3 kg usable so = 5 / 0.667 = 7.5.

Tempted although will take chance and wait nearer to Xmas
Cook salmon on the bone, all meat has so much more flavour when cooked on the bone and I guess maybe that little bit more nutrition.

Salmon bones are big and opaque so easy to remove when on the dinner plate or before serving or use chop sticks, I find chop sticks are fantastic for dissecting cooked fish!

Asked at mine as well and confirmed offer on till xmas eve

They had 3 lovely fresh looking ones on the ice at the front of counter today. Bright red blood around the gills and mouth and clear eyes. Looked very fresh

I would have spoken to the manager, their website offers a filleting service Morrisons although it doesn't state it is done for free, their is certainly no mention of cost on the page. i have never been refused or asked to pay for a more expensive cut at my store, if I have requested a whole fish to be filleted.

That's not the same salmon though.You can buy organic farmed organic salmon for a few pounds a kilo extra.Just check the gill tag.

Was in Morrisons, Bradford Rd this afternoon and was stunned to see the salmon packaged, already filleted (no head/tail unless hidden under the fillets!) and the price/kg was still £5. Bargain.
Update 14th Dec.
Was in Morrisons, Skipton, to buy this item and all packs included head and tail. Asked fishmonger who said this was the law as the label stated "whole salmon". So if you don't see them, they ARE hidden under the fillets.

Thanks op, lots left at Plymouth branch at Outland road
I bought a salmon and they said it was filleted but when I got home it had all the bones in it was not HAPPY x
