I've had the Trident stuff before. It's pretty good. I had some tomato coated breaded tilapia last week from Aldi that was good, but I'm no connoisseur.

I get frozen, wild caught sockeye salmon that's certified from Alaska fisheries. It's cut and packaged in 2 portions per pack. Occasionally I get a fishy tasting piece, but not horribly so and not very often, so I keep on buying it. Salmon has enough fat in the fish that it freezes well and keeps a good texture. I will occasionally buy frozen sushi-grade tuna belly blocks at the Asian grocery near me, but the price is such that I'd rather spend my $$ on frozen shrimp and open a can of tuna later.

I used to get flounder, sole, cod pieces, etc., at Trader Joe's. They were shrink-wrapped and frozen solid and all kinds of odd natural shapes and I thought they were just fine. Whole Foods had the same kind of frozen, tight wrapped various fish filets that looked good, but cost too much. I haven't been happy with anything bought in a bag, even if they're individually wrapped inside.

I too have been searching for a decent frozen fish, so I am hopeful for this thread. I don't wanted breaded or battered, just plain fish. When I have tried some brands they are mushy and wet.

While wild caught is always better, farm raised, North Atlantic Scottish salmon is excellent. It is raised in the ocean, very fatty, and excellent.

We eat Trader Joes frozen cod on a regular basis and it is good.

Wild caught salmon that's flash frozen is pretty good on the grill. Any other fish I prefer to catch myself, mostly rainbow trout.

Good to know. I have a TJ very close to where I live. I get certain things there all the time, but I have not tried their frozen fish.

All fish that you buy at the supermarket is “frozen”.

I usually use frozen fish for the fishcakes. Just chop it up finely, add an egg, lots of herbs and/or spices and just a bit of breadcrumbs or flour for binding. Tilapia and cod work well for those.

Actually frozen cod from Trader Joes is much better quality than what Harris Teeter sells (which is just thawed, anyway).
