“ Brand: Asda / Type: Mackerel Fillets / Fish „
Not very often at all do I eat fish, well not as much as I should and without batter anyway! So the other day whilst in my local Asda store I made a decision to buy some so as well as buying some fresh fish I bought a few cans to try out too and this was one of them cos I do like Mackerel!
The mackerel comes in a grey rounded off oblong tin with a ring-pull to the bottom left hand corner of it. On the top of the can we are told that it is Asda Mackerel Fillets In Sunflower Oil and that the mackerel inside of it weighs 125g (undrained). Other information on the base of the can includes ingredients and allergy advice as well as a full nutritional chart, weight and contact details for Asda being given.
The Mackerel Fillets:
What you get within the can is lots of pieces of plump looking mackerel in a clearish sunflower oil, and theres plenty of that because if you drain the mackerel out of the oil you get 90g of the 'meat'. Whitish in colour and darkish pink with no skin and/or bones this is one nice mackerel and it really is fillet in taste and appearance. Not flaked but chunky it smells fishy and tastes ever so well seasoned!
Course for most dishes you need to drain of the oil off before consuming it but the oil it is stored in makes the fish juicy and not one bit dry.
I love these, have them with salad and on toast and think these are superb quality! I like the fishy, slightly oily taste and give them a massive thumbs up!
