Just taken a couple of frozen cod fillets out of the freezer and there is a distinctly fishy aroma coming from them. I'd have thought if they were frozen, they'd be fresh (we bought them a week ago) and odourless.

Reckon they're off? Should I bin 'em?

So long as you cook it well why throw away/waste perfectly good food?

TBH I wouldn't have a problem with 'em after they be cooked, but 'er indoors is most picky about such matters. If she comes home later to find me fingers smelling like off-fish, there'll be trouble I tells ya.

Should be fine, but good fresh fish should never smell fishy - the more fishy the less fresh. It should smell of the sea.

Aye, twas what I was thinking. Used to work on the fish counter at Waitrose, in my yoof. Rarely smelt of fish as it was always fresh, if there was such a stench then you knew something wasn't quite right.

Having never really worked with the frozen variety of cod, I wasn't sure. PH to the rescue, yet again.

I'm gonna cook it anyway and see if she notices. If you don't see any posts from me for a while, I've got food poisoning, ok?

Just get them eaten, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Main thing is to cook it well. Fishies can give you worms if not well cooked.
