I was just in Makro in Pranburi, after reading this thread. No sign of any cod there, unfortunately. Plenty of pangasius though. Yuch!!!

The product in Makro,150 baht for approx 6 fillets,does it actually state on the packet its cod,and where it is sourced from.At that price it has to be the cheapest white fish fillet available anywhere,especially if it is actually cod.

I don't think you'll find anything like the range of produce in Pranburi than you will at HH.

Agree. HH is better (and cleaner) for fresh stuff. Pran has more hardware and packaged/canned food.

I have no idea where it is sourced from, but yes, it is clearly labeled as Frozen Cod Fillets 700 - 900 grams/pack.

Personally, I would be very surprised if Makro tried to sell it as cod if it were, in fact, something else.

But is it really cod? http://www.coastalliving.com/food/seaf ... /kinds-cod


Thanks for the link. :D


I notice that hake is sometimes used in place of cod, and since I grew up in Cape Town where hake is widely used in F&C shops, I can say that it is the same, if not better than cod. :duck:

THe article mentions butter fish as well, which seems a bit strange to me given that it is actually quite different in taste and texture.

Anyway, whether I bought real cod at Makro or does is not really an issue for me, so long as it tastes okay, and better than pangasius. Having said that, I don't dislike pangasius as much as I used to. In fact, I don't really mind it at all these days, but I find it only comes out the way I like it if I cook it in my deep frier. Still, a little voice in my head insists on reminding me that it is farmed freshwater fish, a concept which is alien to any Capetonian. :D

I prefer Hake to Cod as well, when you can get it as an alternative. I used to be a regular visitor to the far west of Cornwall and it was available in some fish and chip shops down there.

But I'm a Londoner, so for me, nothing beats Rock (Huss or Rock Salmon) as the fish for fish and chips.

That's dogfish!

I'm from Hull which used to be very big on fish. My mother (the fish connoisseur) will not eat cod. She worked at 'Birds Eye' for many years and she says that cod is one of the most cancerous fish and riddled with worms! She gives most other fish quite a good review and one of her favourites for 'fish and chips' is John Dory.

John Dory is a premium fish but comes at a premium price.

Yup, loads of names for it, but always sold as 'rock'.
