Best place to buy wet fish in Udon?

Post by Owld Feller » April 4, 2017, 12:49 pm

What I'm hoping to find is somewhere with a proper, hygienic, fish counter that sells both cuts from larger fish and offers a descaling, cleaning & filleting service for any whole fish selected.

Any help will be much appreciated.

I thought they only sold packs of frozen fish, rather than having an actual fish counter.

Am I wrong?

Sorry, I'm confused. :oops:

I'm assuming that your "Yes" referred to my asking "Am I wrong?", but it could equally apply to "I thought they only sold packs of frozen fish, rather than having an actual fish counter".

If my initial assumption is correct can you please give me a reasonable insight into what wet fish they sell and if they employ staff to provide the additional services I mentioned in my OP?

Makro has a large selection of fish that are not frozen and the staff will fillet for you.

Now I understand more can I thank everyone who suggested Makro, it sounds it could be what I'm looking for.

I never thought for a moment that they had anything like that.

Many thanks again.

Above or after all mentioned, at Makro they can also take skin off, if needed. Like salmon, they usually do 2-3 different cuts and sell with a good profit. 600 - 900 thb/kg. If you buy whole salmon By 370 thb/kg (yes, they have, but you have to ask -very often it is hidden), they do what you ask. If just weight and ask "tam duei" (make also), you get fish head and bone in one plastic bag and two fillets in other. No use to ask different cuts. Also skin is better to leave and give some taste to fish.

Not fish, but Makro. If you have meat, they can slice it or make minced. Of course they sell those, but if you like to have your "own formula" -Like 50% pork and 50% beef minced.

To be honest, I do not know the minimum size of fish that can be prepared. Large sea perch they make, but a small one??? Anyway they sell those small ones ready made/cut in vacuum pack. Usually 1-3 days old.

Finally got to find a fresh Salmon in Makro today, and yes had to ask, but staff very friendly and obliging.

360 / kg , and exactly stated as above by Eagle

Works out to be 620 / kg for the 2 fillets ( they are selling cyrovac fillets for sushi etc for 690 / kg )

I asked for the skin to be removed and already fried the skin and eaten with some spicy nam jim sauce

Dog will get heaps of left overs from the frame and soups as well

Thanks Eagle

You are welcome. I was there on Tuesday and they had two fish visible. I usually like those hidden ones, because stay in colder Place and not everyone touching. They know that I check gills to be red like red wine and do not offer anything else. I need fresh salmon to make cold smoked salmon.
