I've never had a paella before but it's not THAT bad.. the comments are a little bit over the top but again, i've never had a paella before. I added some seasonings and I kinda enjoyed it. The rice was a little undercooked though. (I followed the instructions as guided on the back).
Will not buy again.
Very acidic. I did not enjoy this meal at all and I left 80% of it. It has put me off trying any of the other SlimCook range. To be honest I would not give it any stars.
Avoid tbis tasteless meal
Wish I had read the reviews before eating this. There is nothing good about this meal. It is tasteless and has a horrid consistency . Avoid
Have you ever had a paella?
Have the people that created this recipe actually eaten paella? Have they been to mainland Spain, or even one of the Spanish islands, or even a Spanish restaurant in the UK and eaten paella?No? Well, I have! And I'll tell you what paella is like......... ITS NOTHING LIKE THIS! There are people in jobs that just shouldn't be.
Make it clear!
A sub for Prawn Linguine, but the person who delivered my shopping didn't ask if I was happy with the sub? So by the time I'd unpacked my shop, I found out I had this & had no recourse to return it. It went directly in the bin, Tesco need to make shoppers aware a sub has been given & not rely on us reading the receipt on the doorstep.
Absolutely horrific!! Disgusting watery tomato sauce, unnaturally synthetic sweetness with a nasty after taste. Quite possibly the worse ready meal I've ever tried to eat. Didn't even manage 1 fork full before it went in the bin. How anyone in the Tesco product development kitchen tasted that and passed it as edible is beyond me. Clearly whoever it was has lost any sense of taste. Don't waste your money on this product..vile!
NASTY NASTY NASTY
I'd give this zero points if it was allowed or possible, it was the most disgusting ready meal I've ever eaten . This is nothing like what is supposed to be, it is just big chunks of red pepper, peas, several pieces of chicken and one prawn , and what I can only say is stodge. I expect better from Tesco, needless to say I won't be buying it again and certainly don't recommend it.Brought yesterday 23rd March.for my meal , wish I hadn't bothered -- total waste of money and my time
Was really looking forward to eating this, cooked
Was really looking forward to eating this, cooked as instructions, but, ended up with tomatoe sauce with a bit of rice,4 pieces of chicken, and, 3 prawns. Very dissappointed should have made my own (without the tomatoe sauce).
This was without a doubt the most revolting paella I have ever eaten in my life, in fact it was the most revolting meal ever. I can’t desribe the flavour, but it was vile. I am. It a fussy eater, up this was just simply disgusting. After two mouthfuls, I had to throw it away. Toast for me, instead of the meal I was looking forward to. I am not a fussy eater, but this was indescribable. Yuk!! It has put me off trying other slim meals.
Horrible rubbery prawns and chicken (which I didn't realise was Thai beforehand otherwise I would never have bought it) like others have said, it's like a tomato soup with barley in it.
