Buying fresh fish--sorry, unpleasant topic

Mandy | Jun 3, 2009 12:18 PM

A post on the Los Angeles board about finding parasitic worms in fresh salmon got me concerned about how to find these worms. I often buy fresh fish and always rinse before I cook but never examine for worms. Yuk! Are these immediately visible or do I have to poke at the fish a bit? If I found anything living in my fish it would go into the garbage, but if I have cooked these worms, will they be killed and therefore harmless to whoever eats the fish? Yuk, again. Please enlighten me!
