Asda Smartprice Fish Fingers
Advantages: Well priced and good tasting
Disadvantages: Not telling what fish they are
The other day I saw an advert for Birdseye fish fingers, I hadn't had fish fingers in years so I thought I would get some next time I was in Asda. When I saw that Birdseye were charging around £1.50 for ten, I decided to pick up a Smart Price pack of ten for just 47p.
These can be found in the freezer section of the store. They come in a white box with a green stripe along the bottom. There is a picture of one fish finger on the front of the box which looks very appertising, On the back of the box is the cooking instructions, ingredients, and nutritional information.
When you open the box there are ten fish fingers all lined up, they are not stored in a plastic bag which seems a little strange but doesn't matter too much. They did appear smaller than I remember fish fingers to be, but it has been a while so don't really have anything to compare it to.
There are a few ways in which you can cook these, Oven cook for 12minutes, grill for 8-10minutes, shallow fry for six minutes or deep fry for four minutes. As I didn't fancy frying them, and don't have a clue how to set our grill up, I decided to oven cook them. I actually left them in for around 15minutes until the breadcrumbs were nice and golden brown.
When the fish fingers come out of the oven, the breadcrumbs were all crispy and brown in colour, there was no fat or juice on the oven tray which suggests the quality of fish must be fairly good. When it come to taste, they were very good, the fish was tasty enough and they had just the right of breadcrumbs. For the price tag I was expecting these to be lacking the amount of fish I expected, but they were plenty full enough. The fish did have the occasional off white pieces in it but nothing bad enough to put you off eating it. More importantly, they had no bones in, which would really put me off.
I had five of these with a jacket potato and salad, it went down a treat. When you consider my meal was around 25p for the five fingers, 25p for the jacket potato and around 10p for the salad, it is an extremely cheap but healthy meal.
These fish fingers should be kept frozen and cooked from frozen, my girlfriend actually eats these cold with ketchup on a sandwich, which personally I find very strange.
If I could find one fault, it would be that on the ingredients, you are not told what fish these actually contain, it just says minced white fish, which to me means they throw anything that is white in the mix.
Summary: Good product
