I just had a piece of these cods that I bought for $9.99 a bag at my local grocery store Ralph. But now I feel I was scammed and I am very angry about the quality of this totally tasteless cod fillets. I love fish. Most of my money I spent dining out is on seafood dishes, particularly on fish dishes like cod. So when I saw the photo and the description on the bag, I was lured to make the purchase. May be I am not cooking it right? I thawed the fish fillet and I dumped it in my pre-seasoned Korean Soon Tofu soup starter kit, thinking it's going to add a lot of flavor to my beloved tofu soup. Korean Soon Tofu soup is a very tasty and delicious soup. I bought the extremely tasty Korean soup starter kit, tossed in mushroom, the cod and green onions. But the cod added no extra seafood flavor to my tofu soup. While my tofu and mushroom soaked up the seasoning of the soup starter kit, the cod still tasted nothing. How could the cod taste nothing while my tofu and mushroom absorbed the seasoning of the soup kit? Eating the cod is like chewing on paper towel. I mean paper towel right out of the dispenser without soaking the paper towel into my tasty tofu soup kit. It's because if only I soak my paper towel into the soup, even the paper towel becomes flavorful.
What exactly is this cod? Is this really fish? I mean I had cods in restaurants all the time, baked cods, fried cods, sauteed cod, grilled cod, etc, etc, and I love Trader Joe's "American Made" oven ready breaded cod fillets. I had never had a piece of cod that tasted like paper towel. I am angry because I feel that Kroger insults me by selling me this crap. Does Kroger really think I am so retarded that I think cod should taste like paper towel? Does Kroger think I don't deserve to be sold decent quality cod but tasteless crap? The package says the cods were wild caught in the Pacific. Then when I read the "fine print" just now, I saw "Product of China". Now, no wonder the cod tasted like paper towel, or recycled white plastic? So America can't even fish now, but has to depend on China to fish for her? Only god knows how these cods were processed in the processing plants in China or how they were treated to have the texture changed so drastically and the taste totally bleached out. Anything that can't be seasoned after soaking in the tasty Korean Tofu Soup kit has to be pretty bad....because this soup kit can make anything taste decent, including paper towels and I am not kidding. But the soup can't add flavor to the cod. Besides, fish is supposed to add flavor to any soup...Now, my concern is, are those really cod I just eat or some simulation from recycled plastics?
