Okay so I recently purchased some snapper from Woolworths as I wanted to make some fish cakes. I asked if it was fresh when I was getting it too as it was on special ($20/kg)and they said it was.
Great, I bring it home open it up and a strong fishy smell fills the kitchen. Now I can't just return it because I was stupid enough to say "no" when they asked if Id like a receipt. Since its just smell and it's not actually slimy I try the whole soak it in milk, wash it with salt and starch thing to get rid of the strong smell. I turn them into fishcakes and for a while think this actually worked since all I can smell at this stage is the herbs I added into it. I cook it and nope it has not worked I taste the weird fishiness. Just wasted a kg of fish and bunch of other ingredients on this + my time. I'm a little pissed so I'm wondering if I can complain about this to anyone ?
I've talked with a few friends and to my surprise they've had similar experiences of getting off products from Woolworths. This can't be legal can it ? Can they really sell fish/produce that's about to go off ?
