Sorry to ask a lame question but I have not been able to find this info online. I bought some fresh salmon burgers Wednesday evening. Are they still good today (Saturday)? Thank you.

I can only give you my personal opinion. Chopped up fish, day four - no.

Smell and taste are probably your best indicators - that is what I would do. However, I am not fanatical about such things and have never gotten ill from foods that I have stored and prepared.

Also, there should be a sell by date - usually a couple of days after that typically is okay (depends on the temperature regime at the store and your refrigerator). How many preservatives are in the product?

how are they packaged?? vacuum sealed or just film-wrapped in a foam tray?

I assume the salmon is raw in them? Cooked salmon stays pretty fresh in the fridge for up to a week. But raw salmon, the smell test would be good (as others said). Also, if there is some kind of acid in it such as tomato, or lemon or lime juice, that will keep them fresh longer.

Give it a sniff test, but I probably wouldn't chance it. Salmon burgers freeze well, so if you're not going to use them immediately, wrap them in parchment paper in a ziplock bag and freeze.

Thanks all. They were doctored with some soy sauce and spices, so the sniff test didn't seem reliable. I did dump them--I hate to waste food but I hate gastrointestinal problems much more! Thanks for the advice.
