Salmon Tasting Mouldy

    It wasn't cheap either. The package said is was 'wild' but I have my doubts.

    Anyone else had salmon taste : muddy or moldy?

    ... interesting you mention this, flutterby. i bought some some tinned salmon recently at the bargain price of a dollar a can. however, upon inspection i found it to be a little dry. still very edible and tasty though ...

    I would take dry over mould any day. The large health food chain outlet I bought it from swears it's 'wild' and so does the price tag.

    I also had a tin of salmon go bad within one day..and it had been put in the fridge.

    did you get it from Whole Foods? salmon should not taste moldy. if it was pre-seasoned maybe the bread crumbs or panko that was used went bad?

    yes I did. no seasoning. Thank you for stating the obvious. I think i know that salmon should not taste moldy.

    Makes me suspect that farmed salmon goes 'off' faster than wild. Another reason to avoid it where possible. Off course when it's labelled Wild, what can a consumer do?

    I'm gonna start using a pendulum to test out food before i buy it. such a horrendous waste of money.

    One possibility is that someone used fresh water to rinse the fish-I know it sounds odd but saltwater fish goes off quite quickly if it's rinsed with fresh water.
