Okay.. So I bought some fresh salmon - thought great, cost me a bomb, but hey, it's healthy!
Anyway, it was a day or so before I decided to use it. I cooked one half and froze the other.
Now my uncle kept commenting on how much it smelt - me like, duh, it's fish! That evening of enjoying pan fried salmon (no added oils, used the fish's own oils), I was then stuck on the loo multiple times that night. Thought it may have been the veg - as I'd piled it up! Put it out of my mind.
Well, tonight - decided to defrost and use the other half of it. Again my uncle commented on the smell. I'm starting to get worried, I've eaten it anyway - tasted fine.
Now I have just googled "should salmon smell" (if anyone is watching my search history - they're going to be puzzled right now). Short answer.... NO, salmon shouldn't smell to the extent this lot did.....!!
Now I am facing another few runs to the loo tonight!!
Moral of the story - your salmon should not smell overly fishy. And if it does, don't eat it!!!!
Wish me luck!
