Does anyone know what this fish product is? Spotted in the freezer section of NTUC.
'Ocean fresh delite Cod Steak, 500 grams, Product of: France'.
The skin doesn't look like any kind of cod I've seen before. It has quite prominent/distinctive black and white, almost chequered scales. Whereas the cod I know, has no such scaling, and is a graduated green/silver colour.
I'm reminded of the pervasive 'Dory fish' you see in restaurants here, which suggests it comes from the very high-end and $$$ John Dory fish. Whereas in fact it's from something like farmed VNese catfish or similar. hehehe.
Plus I'm curious why an everyday supermarket is importing fish from France, of all places. If I can tell what it actually is, I'll then know whether it's worth a go, and how to cook it.
Those part steaks are maybe 6" across. It suggests the whole fish must be pretty big.
p.s. A web-search did not help me.
Apologies for the scaling of the pic. The Resize function seems to defeat me more often than not these days...
