I was checking out a blog who links to me and found some very interesting expose about ikan patin from Vietnam ‘dressed’ as Dory, the marine fish.Ã‚Â Thanks to Birds Talking, I now know why the dory fish feels so freakish slippery when I thawed and wash it.
According to this blog, the cheap dory we are getting from the supermarket is actually a kind of patin fish which comes from Vietnam.Ã‚Â It is a fresh water fish.Ã‚Â If you remember correctly, there was a big scandal involving our local fish rearers where they found the patin fishes are fed chicken innards and ewwwss…faeces!
Of course, the real ikan patin from the river of Pahang (correct?) is really, really good and expensive.Ã‚Â I had tasted it in Temerloh and Mentakab.Ã‚Â But the reared ikan patin can have very strong ‘earthy’ smell.
Surf over to Birds Talking blog and find out the kind of things people do to cheat us consumers.Ã‚Â I hope our hypermarkets will not poison us with sub-standard foods in their quest to make money.Ã‚Â And as usual, we can’t rely on our authorities too much to take care of our health.
