Used to be my favourite seafood sauce but this jar was so awful I couldn't eat it. Good consistency and colour BUT so vinegary and sharp that it masked the prawn's flavour completely. If you enjoy being swamped with the taste then you might like it but I wouldn't recommend it at all.
Too much vinegar
I have been using this seafood sauce for over 10 years. Bought 2 small jars for my crab salad and is absolutely dissatisfied. The taste the look is totally different to what it was. It is full of vinegar, the label is saying the same as the old label and I’m sure customers will know it’s a lie. Tesco please tell the truth as to why this has changed to such an awful sauce. Won’t be buying again plus need a full refund.
A vinegar taste to it
I don’t normally leave reviews but as I’m having to heavily rely on reading reviews left by others this year due to having to shield I thought I’d give it a go as it might help someone else. I found this seafood sauce to be on the vinegary side, it wasn’t awful just too much of a vinegar taste for me. If it wasn’t for the vinegar taste it would be a nice sauce. Stay safe everyone
Ghastly colour and taste
Doesn't deserve the 1 star! Ghastly! Opened the jar to make a prawn cocktail and it smelt overpoweringly garlic - yuk, thankfully I'd tried a small amount before placing on the prawns otherwise they would have been thrown away too. The sauce is a horrible colour, too much garlic and leaves a very strange after taste. The whole jar was chucked and looking at the other reviews why on earth did Tesco change the recipe - they are certainly losing money on this product. Do not buy.
Tasteless waste of time - DON’T BOTHER!
Utterly tasteless muck. This sauce makes your prawns a total waste of money as it tastes of nothing! WHY have Tesco changed it?!?! Gone is the rich, creamy, piquant flavour, to be replaced by a runny, vomit-coloured waste of time. Very disappointed, as Tesco used to make the best seafood sauce on the market. What a let down!
I have been buying this seafood sauce for years an
I have been buying this seafood sauce for years and recommending it as the best on the market but unfortunately I will not be buying this again.the moment I opened my latest jar I could see it was odd looking, totally different colour and texture and it tastes awful, If I could no stars I would.
Bad recipe change
Also stopped buying after change of recipe
This used to be lovely, why have you changed the recipe? Shall not be buying any more until you go back to the original. Very disappointed.
AWFUL - new recipe
DO NOT BUY, they have changed the recipe and it is awful. I had an old jar and compared and the ingredients have changed a lot.
