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.
Delicious and tender when you boil them on the hob
I have been buying these every week for at least the past 5 years. They are very tasty, and very good value for money. I always boil them in a pan of water for 20 minutes, I would not dream of microwaving them. I normally cook 3 pouches per meal as I am very physically active so I need a lot of protein. But at 50p per pouch, you can't go wrong!
The horror of those damn buttery bags of sorrow
OK guys, I bought this fish expecting a succulent yet reasonably priced light meal. Instead, I was met with a mess of bags, dripping with butter which stuck to the sides. Each time I managed to squeeze one of the fish fillets out of the buttery bags, I was met with the horror of seeing the butter still stuck to the inside of the bags, forever separated from the now lonely fish fillets.
I like them
These are not too bad really, the well known brand is more than double the price of these, these are pollock, against the cod ones. Boil in the bag, don't microwave them. Ideal with mash and veg, I have 2 as there small, but so is the branded
Delicious and fast to prepare
This taste so good! You just have to salt a little bit the sauce and it is perfect!
