Why Toman fish slice turned greenish when cooked?

Why Toman fish slice turned greenish (reflective) when cooked ? :scared:

I bought some Toman fish slice from NTUC yesterday. Cooked with porridge just now.


Is this contamination or a different Toman species? :nailbite:

I have bought Toman fish slice before (a couple of times) but don't remember them changing to reflective greenish colour after cooked.

That green glow is unnerving. Is the fish from fukushima? :siam:

Could it be mercury?! :yikes:

I have seen such greenish tint in food (braised duck) but not on seafood.
