    i was buying the pacific cod loin,but once you squeezed the water out there was no taste,this indian halibut is supposed to be fresh,hopefully that means no added water.at 600bht.a kilo i will be expecting something decent,and not have to rely on lenon jus.and salt.

    Batter a bit of dory for your fish and chips. It won't taste the same as cod but you're not in Blighty now. Dory isn't expensive and you can buy it frozen. I think CP sell frozen dory fillets, which means it's easily available.

    The problem is warm water fish is just not the same a northern or deep atlantic fish somehow.

    Nev, its not bad. Weirdly my Mrs seems to do something with salt and carp and it doesn't come out too bad if i'm honest or maybe its just my body's relief at putting something in it which will not make me break out in sweats, pant like a dog and burn on the way out.

    Its being sold as Dory in Thailand but in reality is Pangasius which is farm raised and full of god knows what from VietNam. We stopped eating it years ago.

    The reason is simple the colder the water the more nutrients in the water.

    Also, when surface waters are cold, it is easier for deeper water to rise to the surface, bringing nutrients to sunlit areas where phytoplankton can use them. When surface water is warm, cooler, nutrient-rich water is trapped below. Because the vertical layers of the ocean aren't mixing, nutrients that have built up in deep waters can't reach the surface.
    The colder the water the tastier the fish typically I have found. That is why Alaskan salmon, halibut and cod is the best eating in the world.

    Glad I live in the home port for most of those fishing boats.

    This is the plaice: where to get the best fish and chips in Manchester


    This is the plaice. And the cod. And the haddock





    National Fish and Chip Day on 1 June celebrates everyone’s favourite dish. And what better way to mark it than with a chippy tea? From pubs and restaurants to takeaways, here’s where you’ll find some of the best in town.
    1761


    This is the place for a modern Mancunian menu, so it’s no surprise to see they do a blinding fish and chips. Their crisp Manchester Three Rivers gin battered haddock is served with golden chunky beef dripping chips and mushy peas – aka Manchester caviar.
    2 Booth St, Manchester M2 4AT
    Hip Hop Chip Shop

    Pic Adam PesterThe super-cool Hip Hop Chip Shop will soon be opening their first permanent restaurant in Ancoats, though you can currently find them at MediaCityUK. Treat yourself to a Feastie Boys box with beer battered fish biters, chunky skin-on chips, minty mushy peas and tartare sauce.
    Cargo, MediaCityUK, Salford M50 2EQ
    The Refinery

    This stylish Spinningfields restaurant serves up a beautiful beer-battered haddock and chips, along with a tasty tartare sauce. Enjoy a British classic in elegant surroundings – especially good when paired with one of their ‘enchanted garden’ cocktails.
    G1 XYZ Building, 2 Hardman Boulevard, Manchester M3 3AQ
    Mr Thomas’s Chop House


    Manchester’s Victorian Chop Houses know a thing or two about the classics. Try Tom’s Pale Ale-battered sustainable Scottish haddock with hand cut chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce.
    52 Cross St, Manchester M2 7AR
    Randall & Aubin


    Randall & Aubin specialise in a sumptuous menu of British seafood. Try the battered Peterhead haddock, a huge fillet served with fat chips and minted mushy peas. The mid-afternoon offer, including a glass of fizz, is especially good value.
    64 Bridge St, Manchester M3 3BN
    Wright’s Fish & Chip Shop

    A traditional chippy right in the city centre. Ideal for a takeaway lunch or take-out chippy tea, with some seating available inside. This is the place for proper chippy chips, cooked fresh and with love.
    86 Cross St, Manchester M2 4LA
    Tony’s Chippy

    A classic chippy dedicated to using the finest quality potatoes and fish from sustainable stocks. Keep your eye out for the much-loved beer battered onion rings and potato scallops too – and they also are known for their butties and snacks. A one-stop shop.
    3 Piercy St, Manchester M4 7HY
    Leo’s Fish Bar

    A characterful eatery on Oldham Street in the Northern Quarter which serves up some of the most-loved fish and chips in the city as well as other favourites from English breakfasts to fried chicken and much more. You really can fill your boots here, with take-out and eat-in options available. Open till 5am on Saturday nights.
    12 Oldham St, Manchester M1 1JQ
    Kingfisher


    A Northern Quarter chippy with bags of character and generous bags of chips too. A no-nonsense, good grub location, with the old-school interiors part of the charm. Available to take away or eat-in at their cafe-style tables. Cooked to order and available as a proper ‘chippy tea’ along with a proper brew and sliced white bread. Locally sourced potatoes, great curry and gravy options.
    43 Tib St, Manchester M4 1LX
    Fish Hut

    There’s a take-away counter downstairs and seats upstairs, but on a good day it’s worth taking your fish and chips out to eat in the nearby Roman Gardens and Castlefield.
    27 Liverpool Rd, Manchester M3 4NW
    Manchipster Plaice

    Traditional English fish and chips super-close to Shudehill and The Printworks often open till late. Pop in for a great value chippy tea of cod or haddock combined with proper fat-cut chippy chips.
    4 Dantzic St, Manchester M4 2AG
    Portland Plaice

    A thriving Portland Street chippy close to Chinatown serving great value fish and chips. Ideal combined with their classic take-out sides of peas, curry or gravy (or even combined, if you are so inclined). A popular pit-stop on nights out.
    88 Portland St, Manchester M1 4GX
    The Corner Plaice


    Its well worth the trip to Hulme High Street to sample the delights of The Corner Plaice. There’s plenty of choice, their fish is delivered by suppliers who conform to sustainability guidelines, and they fry in 100% uncontaminated vegetable oil.
    31 Hulme High Street, Manchester, M15 5JT
    The Village Fish & Chip Shop

    This shop specialises in fresh cooked fish and chips in the Gay Village but is popular with people from across the city. Their fish suppers are available large as well as regular, plus there’s the option of scampi and cod bites. Tuck in.
    37 Bloom St, Manchester M1 3LY
