    Salmon at Tesco's.

    Heads up. Tesco, including their small shops, have on offer until 4 Oct good quality frozen salmon fillet. 99 Baht each for 140 grams, buy 2 get 1 free.

    140g is the standard weight for a single portion in most restaurants. Good deal.

    ^ 140g would be the standard weight after cooking.

    Salmon loses about 25% of its weight through the cooking process.

    ^Great if you live somewhere that has wild salmon, I suppose. Choices are a bit limited in Thailand.

    Why because farm raised salmon is disgusting and unhealthy? I would not eat it here in the states and would not eat it if I was in LOS either. Plenty of other fresh fish to be had other than that shit.

    Well most here do when they get a craving, I for sure did stop at a Tesco Express on the way home and had a look. My mee, was the reply.. 70 or 80 bucks a kilo for the fresh Norwegian can be had, but that is just too dear for me... Sure on holiday I cook up the real kind. The life of an expat. Using Thai chilies in my salsa instead or jalapeno's or habanero's as well..

    The dinner thread is testament to the shit you eat such as soggy pizzas and other crap that looks like it's been eaten before and you have an issue with farm raised salmon. You really are the dopiest twat on this forum.

    I have never seen anything more disgusting than some of the regurgitated dog food you have posted in that thread.

    I will just leave this here...But the farmed shit is still worse.

    The truth about supermarket salmon: It's come 22,000 miles from Alaska to your plate (via China, Suez and the Med)... and may be 18 months old!

    Too true. Salmon farms also destroy oyster beds and cause all kinds of diseases in seals and otters.

    Thank your for pointing that out. We here in Washington are dealing with a rather nasty situation with these farmed monsters. There was a recent rupture of the pens these Atlantic salmon are kept in and it invaded the native waters...

    https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle...n-puget-sound/

    They really a blight on the local salmon fishery and I hope after this disaster that this industry will be banned. Sadly in Drumpfs country they are rolling back every regulatory body they can so this will most likely just get worse. I hope on a local and state level we can fight it off.

    Probably.

    The missus inadvertently gave me a tin of cat-food for my dinner yesterday and I couldn't sleep last night due to me being awake all night licking me arse.
