Tiny, tasteless yuck!
I buy several of the Hearty Food products as have found them to be good value for a quick meal......so tried these when my usual bag if frozen pollock was unavailable. Never again!! Tiny portion swimming in a floury sauce totally devoid of any seasoning. It literally tasted of NOTHING.
Not as good as I'd hoped - fish smelt funky, looke
Not as good as I'd hoped - fish smelt funky, looked quite grey and the sauce was very watery.
Bland disgusting rubbish
This is disgusting rubbery pollock fish. Minute sizes. Complete waste of money. Most of it will be going in the bin.
Makes an acceptable lunch.
These are reasonable for the price and make a tasty lunch with lots of veg, but they used to be fish in sauce, now they are sauce with a bit of fish. But, we have to go with the times, less for the same price.
Makes a delicious fish pie.
I take two out of the bags while frozen so the sauce comes out easily. Break into bite size chunks. It defrosts quickly. I then add some undyed smoked cod or haddock, frozen petit pois, top with mashed potato and grated cheese. Bake until bubbly and golden brown. Serve with spinach. Delicious saucy fish pie that’s very economical and quick and easy to make. You’re welcome 🙂😉
Remove from bag before cooking!
I take them out of bag while frozen and cook in covered dish in microwave. That way there is far less mess and you don't end up with half the sauce wasted, stuck inside bag and impossible to get out. They are very small, so I always have 2. But I do like them
Good value, but adjust cooking times
For the price these are good value, but...... Although following the cooking instructions - which do not say if this is for 1, 2, 3 or all 4 steaks - the first fillet I opened was still cool in the middle. Fortunately I was cooking some garlic flatbread at the time, so (after removing the others from their packing) another 5 minutes in the oven and they were fine. I think another 30 seconds for each of the two minutes cooking stated on the pack would be better. (my microwave is 900 watts). The sauce was acceptable - some herbs and/or garlic/ smoked paprika would have made this a 5 star for me, but for the price I cannot complain.
The fish is fine, but it smells
I wondered about the taste of these and it's actually alright. However when I cooked two pouches in a pan of boiling water, one of the bags split. This only resulted in sauce leaking out but the fishy smell was strong, so be warned!
Alaskan Pollock, very nice
These are nice. They call it theragra chalcogamma but to you and me it’s Alaskan pollock. I was almost put off! Easy meal and low calorie with a ton of veg :) great freezer standby
Good price for what it is, taste is fine for the p
Good price for what it is, taste is fine for the price. Notice that some of the bad reviews here are people who simply fail to be able to cook something in the microwave in a plastic bag, rather than the actual ingredients.. go figure. This product can be the base of a good "cheat" quick fish curry, if you cook all 4 bags in the microwave, then stick in a frying pan and slowly, with some extra butter, mix in curry spices to your requirement. Note you need at least two packets per one person.
