    Don't bother with the goujons, bloody terrible. Got them last sale and not even worth 1/2 price, no one in family liked them

      Yeah they were horrific. Mushy, tasteless and just horrible.
      The (crumbed?) fish bites were ok, better than most of the pre packed crumbed/battered fish you'll find in the freezer at Coles.
      Edit: might have been the battered whiting I got, can't quite remember.

      KB's Crispy Fish Goujons/Battered Bites 1 kg
      Made in Vietnam with Local and Imported ingredients.
      Ingredients:
      Basa (60%) ([Pangasius hypophthalmus)

      FYI Tastes like soap and typically companies will either coat in crumb or heavily marinate to remove the presevatives and bleach used to whiten or provide an anti bacterial solution to an almost inedible fish. I had it once and never again. I am also a qualified Chef so understand the varieties of seafood.
      Spend a little more and get Whiting or NZ Hake.

      Basa is Vietnamese catfish caught in the Mekong Delta. Its horrible and used in cheap fish promotions/products.
      WIKI reference:
      Basa They are often labelled in North America and Australia as "basa fish", "swai",[3] or "bocourti".[4] In the UK all species of Pangasius may legally be described as "river cobbler", "cobbler", "basa", "pangasius", "panga", or any of these with the addition of "catfish".[5]

        Yes, agree. If you look and the ingredients say Basa, just put it back.

        On topic: the crumbed whiting bites you get in Woolworths are the same product and cheaper by a couple of dollars at Aldi. These are OK for a snack-like lunch or dinner.

      • I actually quite like basa; you just need to know how to cook it. I just won't eat it because of environmental reasons.

  • That's the good oil.

    Some of the freezer cabinet 'fish' meals are woeful HOWEVER we have found that the Sealord (must be this brand) Tempura Whiting and Tempura Dory are approaching fish shop standard. But not the Hoki, definitely not the Hoki (they don't call it Hoki for nothing .. 🤣😂🤣) .. !! PS .. crumbed is also an inferior coating IMHO!! That's why the Tempura sells out so quickly, especially when on special!!!
