If this is an excuse for risotto then I'm a monkey's uncle. It's NOTHING like risotto. It's bland, there's no sauce, it's just thick and stodgy rice. There is no taste of smoked haddock. I couldn't eat it. Had to chuck most of it away. This is the second Finest meal I've had this week which is only fit for the bin. Definitely recommend you don't buy it.
Absolutely delicious! Lovely and creamy with plenty of haddock and the arborio rice texture was exactly as it should be. Going to try and make my own now.
Smoked haddock in stodgy rice not very nice
Was not keen on this dish mainly because the rice
Was not keen on this dish mainly because the rice was too soggy. Husband was of same opinion.
One of the best fish ready meals I have ever had, big pieces of fish, one of Tesco's best ready meals.
Awful! Tasteless: like rice pudding with not even a teaspoon of fish in; even that was dry, stringy and had bones in it! I couldn’t eat it! Yuck! Chucked it in the bin! Really poor quality - cannot believe this is supposedly a Finest meal!
If this is Tesco finest, it's hard to imagine what the normal range is like. Shockingly bland. I would have been better off cooking some long grain rice with a mixture of starchy water and lemon.
Where is the haddock?
We received this as a substitute for the fish pie. There wasn’t a single piece of smoked haddock, nor did the risotto taste of it, overall a very bland and disappointing meal.
One of Tesco's better Finest range offerings.
I've occasionally had this where the fish has been on the dry side, which is poor quality control. However, it's usually a fine dish with the wine and citrus adding that special added flavour which makes it a very tasty meal. One of Tesco's better 'Finest' meals.
Let us be clear that chucking a few pieces of dry fish on top of rice does NOT make risotto. The rice , by the way, had 4 green beans in it. And that was that. E for results and E- for effort.
