    Fishy Bargains!

    Hello,

    Further to the 'my fishy week' thread which has seemed to work so well for some of you. I was wondering if on your shops you would mind keeping an eye out for some fishy bargains and letting us know what you find! Fish can be awfully expensive, but the losses seem to good to not give it a go!!

    So far i have found;

    Sainsburys 4 tins of Princes Tune Half Price

    ASDA whole sea bass (fish counter) Half Price - £1.80 per fish

    xx

    Good idea! I will keep my eys peeled!

    I tried to get the Sea Bass from Asda yesterday but suprise suprise they sold out.... DOH!!

    Aldi have some Frozen Tuna Steaks which are very nice. About £3.80 and you get 5-6 steaks.

    I went to Morrison's the other morning & attacked the reduced to clear section of fish!!

    Came away with rainbow trout, haddock, cod, as well as salmon kebabs & didn't pay much at all compaired to what i would have paid full price!

    I am sure the tuna (tinned) was half price for 4 pack too :)

    The only fresh mackerel I've eaten is some my OH caught on a fishing trip, but I suppose it's no different from buying fresh mackerel from a supermarket or your local fishmongers.

    I stuffed it with garlic, herbs and a squeeze of lemon juice, wrapped in foil and baked it in the oven, and served with some steamed veg and SW chips. Lovely!

    Get you fishmonger to fillet it for you, then:

    Dip the fillets in beaten egg, then dip them in porridge oats (28g is a HEXB) then fry in fry light

    serve with scrambled egg and grilled tomato for breakfast or SW chips and mushy peas for tea


    yum yum yum

    Ive not bought any yet Mummoth, I have heard good things from other miniminers though! You can ask them to fillet them and everything for you which leaves you with 2 fillets xx

    Yeah I was pretty impressed - Just came home & bunged it all in the freezer - so just going to lift something out each night.

    I also get mixed seafood (mussles, cockles & squid etc) from the frozen section, can't remember the price about £2.50ish & it makes a yummy sea food stirfry :D

    I got a load of my fish from farmfoods last week, so frozen, the packs of smoked haddock skinless and boneless are just 2.95 there were 5 pieces in the pack the cod was the same price too. Salmon was a bit more at 3.95 for 4 pieces. Think i need to try some other fish tho had some sea bass a while ago but it wasnt filleted and the bones put me off may try asda and see if I can get it filletted :)

    Just eating good food and watching the calories.
    I bought 2 trays of prawns (4 portions) in a chilli sauce and rainbow trout (2 large fillets) for 7 euro in M&S yesterday. I'd say they're doing those 2 for a fiver deals over there too, get in there of a morning and you always get good bargains. :D

    Smoked salmon trimmings are always a bargain. Before it became part of Co-op my local Somerfield (which I cannot get out of the habit of calling Gateway - and before that struggled to remember it wasnt the International LOL!) used to do a pack of trimmings for 99p. There was a good amount in them too, plenty for a stirfry etc.

    Fresh mackerel must be really fresh. It should look very shiny and almost alive, if you know what I mean.

    I once had my sister and mother in hysterics in a supermarket when I said "I'm not buying that mackerel, it looks dead" - but I knew what I meant!!

    It is not a difficult fish to fillet yourself, with a steady hand and a sharp knife, but if you haven't done it before get the fishmonger to do it and watch carefully!

    One traditional accompaniment is a gooseberry sauce - made as you would apple sauce for pork. I used to make a stuffing with little cubes of wholemeal bread, gooseberries, lemon juice and butter - but that was back then of course!!

    You can also bake them whole (gutted, of course) and then eat them off the bone, but that makes for a very untidy plate!
