Dory Fish

Postby Cutie Chars » Tue Sep 13, 2011 1:12 pm

Hi moms,

Saw an article w pix posted some time ago that these fishes are rear in dirty big drains in Vietnam . Any truth in it? I find the fish quite nice when pan fried. Since these fishes are selling quite cheap in supermarkets, i was also doubtful. Pls advice.

I'm not too sure of this but I will usually buy the 'farm-bred' one, It has less muddy taste too. Can buy from giant or ntuc (green packaging).

I think eat once in a while is ok. What I read these are actually catfish. For cooking at home, I use fresh fish only.

I dare not buy dory or sutchi fish cos my very good friend told me the same thing as in "
"fishes are rear in dirty big drains in Vietnam" so I never buy.
I go to the wet market to do my marketing. There are many other varieties in the wet market to choose from.

If you are not sure or are in doubt then don't buy dory for peace of mind.

I used to buy that too but changed my mind after reading an email regarding the catfish reared in dirty drain condition. I must say it was very cheap and good for making fish n chips though .

I noticed that restaurants like Swensen/Manhatten Fish Market use dory fish for Fish & Chips.

Now I must make a point not to order Fish & Chips.

I don't like the muddy taste too! Therefore I seldom buy it.

If I want to make fish and chips out of dory fish, I'll also buy the brand 'fish & co" sutchi fish. More expensive but less muddy taste.

Dory is a marine fish and certain species like john dory are quite tasty and sometimes served in restaurants.
They are different from catfish/ sutchi fillet from Vietnam, which are river/ farmed fish with the muddy taste.

I do realise that some of the eateries interchange the 2 names probably to get better sales. It's safe to say if you are in a reputable restaurant, u can ask if they are serving the sea dory and they will reply to the affirmative. If you are in a foodcourt/ hawker centre, they will usually tell you its catfish/ sutchi. And honestly for the price we pay at foodcourt, it's probably what we'll get.

I read about this long time ago and I have stopped eating Dory long time ago. I won't order any fish dish that is Dory in restaurants too.

Nowadays, even those fish soup stalls are using these for their fried fish soup which I dun like. Maybe becoz of easy handling as it is in fillet form bah. But it just doesn't taste the same as the normal fried fish that we used to consume in the past. :( :-o
