Simple Tips on Buying Fish

If you are buying fish, there are a few things to consider to make sure you get the freshest product available. Try to shop in a busy store, as their fish will not sit around too long. You can also ask when they get in their shipments of fish and try to buy close to that day and time. Ask to smell the fish and pass on it if it doesn't smell fresh (it should not smell strongly fishy). Fresh fillets should be shiny and there should be no discoloration of the edges. Whole fish should have shiny eyes, and live shellfish should have no open or broken shells. When in doubt, remember that most fish can be purchased frozen. Since this fish is flash frozen often right at the point of the catch or processing, it is a good alternative to fresh.
