Asda Smartprice Fish Fingers
Advantages: cheap, healthy and children love them
I am one to do a quick meal from time to time. This is mainly because of how hectic my life is, with 2 school runs, the cleaning, appointments and after school clubs that start at 6 dinner has to be prepared early or cooked quick.
I like to try and eat healthy and think that fish is a good source of healthy food to ensure a balanced diet for my children. Due to the recession finances have been hard and I have had to make a lot of cut backs in some areas and some of my food has had to change to supermarkets own brands. My local shopping centre is Asda and I have started to shop on line due to my partner now working long hours and I have two young children and don't drive it just makes my life a little bit easier.
I have found that the smart price fish fingers are as good as the leading brands, they have just as much fish in the middle but have less bred crumbs on them. This is ok because it is mainly my children that eat these and they are not overly keen on the breadcrumbs anyway.
There are 10 fingers in a box which is a weeks worth to feed my children because they eat 2 at each meal and have also been feeding them to his friend that I have twice a week. They are low in calories at 45 calories per finger, they are low in sugar, they are not high in fat or salt either so my children are getting the goodness that they need.
They are made from minced white fish, but it doesn't state what fish is used which I think they should do. They contain gluten, wheat and fish in case of allergies the packet should always be read. They remove the bones from the fish but do warn that some bones may remain so to be careful. I however have never had any bones in these so I am not too worried about this.
You are able to grill these, oven cook them, deep or shallow fry them. The instructions to cook are on the side of the packet and are easy to understand and they are very easy too cook. I tend to grill them for a crispy batter which I like or I oven cook them which makes them a little soggy which my children like and they taste nice on a sandwich cooked in the oven.
I always put some chips on the side that I oven cook and a vegetable of some kind just to make a meal a little more filling and ensure that my children are getting some of their 5 a day at home. Sweet corn makes a good addition to this meal.
These are cheap to buy which I like and purchase 2 packs a week in case I need to use more one day. All of the family like these and prefer them to Birdseye brand. I think these are very tasty and filling and are easy to cook and cheap. I would advise people to try these if you are having to live on a budget they are healthy and worth the money.
Summary: as good as the expensive ones
