Default How long can I keep Cod in the fridge before it goes bad ??

Bought two pounds of fresh Cod Filets from my local grocery store on Wed. night. Well I've been a bit lazy as I still haven't gotten around to cooking it yet in the oven. It been patiently sitting in my fridge getting pissed off at me for neglecting it

So if there are any Julia Child's out there that could just let me know what are the max # of days that I can keep Cod in the fridge before it will go bad on me, if anyone really knows. Thanks a lot.

My cods would tend to shrivel up in the freezer

Someone once said that fish and company start to smell after 3 days. I think that is about right.

Well, you could put it in tuperware, cover it with water, seal it and freeze it and it should be good.

Smell it. Fish that has gone bad will smell bad. Fresh fish usually is odorless or has that fresh April scent.

If you got it wednesday it should be good, but i would use it by tomorrow. I normally freeze it and thaw before use.

No one is being obstinate about giving you an answer, it is just impossible to be precise. How was it stored BEFORE you bought it. Was it caught that day and if not how many days ago? Exactly how cold is your fridge? We cannot smell it or check it's texture, so no one here can be precise. My gut feeling, which is worthless, is that it is getting iffy right now, if it is not too late.

WINSTON:

Yeah your right. Its just bloddy fish after all. Well I guess I'll find out tomorrow night. BTW, I have another two pounds in the freezer as the girl forgot to ring it up and I didn't realize I got two free pounds of fish untill I got home.

I gott remember, this is just fish:beer:
