Raw Cod Liver? Has anyone tried it?
« on: March 11, 2018, 11:04:47 pm »

I wonder if any one has tried raw cod liver?

How does it taste?

Did you feel any health benefits after eating it?

Lately I found canned rod liver in the market, but I am not found of canned foods. But I tried it and it tasted good. That is why I am wondering if any one has tried raw cod liver?

Isn't freezing Cod liver at -18 degree for 7 days kills all these nasty things?

Watch for any Anisakis and similar parasitic worms, as you would with normal Raw Cod flesh.    Having eaten plenty of Raw Cod and Raw Haddock over many years, I have had uncomfortable experience with Anisakis and learnt to avoid painful stomach cramps by thoroughly examining the raw flesh and using 'candling' to back this up.    Have enjoyed Cod with Anisakis in it - after removing each and every one.   Occasionally rely on freezing for a period but prefer it raw and unfrozen.

Some pointers or pictures on how to identify the liver in whole fish and squid would be great. I often get them ungutted but I have no idea what's what, and most of it tastes horribly bitter, so I throw it all out and stick to the meat, skin and eyes. Sometimes the cartilage too, depending on the type of fish it is.

Maybe I'm wrong but it doesn't seem like the liver in fish looks at all like the liver in mammals or birds.

tbh, I always find the raw liver in fish to taste way too bitter. As a result, I only ever eat whole fish in the form of very small, fatty fish like sardines. Otherwise I just stick to the muscle-meat of most fish.

If I don't notice them because they are too small, then no problem - too big and the eyes and head seem indigestible. Otherwise, there is the issue of scales which I cannot stand..

The head of large fish is not easily chewable, so it makes sense that we wouldn't eat them. The eyes however, depending on the fish type and how fresh it is, can be a real treat. They're juicy, fatty and sometimes even sweet. I just poke 'em out with a fork, being careful not to puncture them too much, or plently of the fluid will leak - sometimes even squirt all over the place lol

I'm not sure what you meant about the scales. I used to eat scales cooked, but raw I hate them. There are no scales in the eyes, though.

I've eaten the liver of wild freshwater snook raw; very delicious. The guts though tasted much like the way shit smells; not so good.
