Made it last night, was still cooling when I went to bed, was going to go back down to put it in the fridge but I fell asleep so only put it in the fridge this morning. Can I eat it tonight or is that a bit dodgy? (it was covered btw)

I would think it's fine

oh bummer, really? beans on toast for me tonight then

I probably would - especially this time of year as it gets quite cold at night. AMybe not if you leave the heating on at night.

NO WAY, unless your house is as cold as a real fridge.

I have the faint recollection that with fish and sea food the problem is not so much about bacteria but about dangerous toxins released.

so long as you heat it really really well then it should be fine.

I don't think there'd be a problem if its just fillet of fish type fish (ie cod/haddock/salmon). I might be a bit wary if it had shell fish in it.

It satyed out overnight as it cooled and then went in fridge.

Yeah I'd eat that. Done this loads of times myself with food that was cooling.

2 against 1 for...
our flat isn't particularly cold but the heating wasn't on
won't give it to DD don't want to poison her, but might risk it for me

I'd probably eat it, but nuke it in microwave first. My kitchen is like a fridge anyway.

Wheelybug Thu 23-Oct-08 16:54:13

Mig - eat it and report back in the morning and then we'll know wink

mighoula Thu 23-Oct-08 16:54:37

cross post..
oh god now I'm even more confused! just has haddock & salmon in it, no shellfish
thing is even if I eat I know I won't really enjoy it now bec I'll be wondering if it's ok!

ha ha wheelybug yes then I can give everyone the official answer
it was bloody gorgeous too (but at least I've tasted it, it's not like I made it last night specifically for today)
