Birds Eye Simply Cod Fillets
Advantages: Delish fresh tasting fish; Nice crunchy breadcrumbs; Low in calories
I love fish but get a bit bored of plain oven cooked fish so like to keep a good selection of breaded and flavoured fish in the freezer, these Simply Cod Fillets from Birds Eye are quite expensive but mega filling and tasty so that makes them worth the money I reckon.
It's a big thick cod fillet that has been coated in breadcrumbs, the good thing is that the breadcrumbs are quite thin on the fish so you know most of your meal is going to be fish instead of a tiny bit of cod inside a majorly thick breadcrumb coating!
The fillets take about 30 mins to cook in the oven and that leaves the fish flakey but makes sure that the breadcrumbs go nice and crunchy. The breadcrumbs have got a nice fresh flavour that makes them taste a lot nicer than the breadcrumbs you get on fish fingers and stuff like that. The breadcrumbs on the bottom of the fish go a bit soggy feeling but you can't help that because of the fish sitting on them while it's cooking.
The fish is wicked, it's loads thicker than I expected it to be and has got a yummy fresh taste. It flakes as you cut into it but will slice through good so that you can easily get a good mouth full of fish without it falling off the fork all over the place. It's cooked well all the way through and even the ends of the fish are moist and flakey and haven't dried out or anything.
I had my fish today with salt and vinegar over it and some tartare sauce on the side, I wasn't in the mood for a Sunday dinner and there was only me and my sister in so I did us both one of these cod fillets with chips and peas. The meal was sooooooo filling that I didn't even eat all my chips and that's something that never happens! lol
I thought the meal was as good as fish and chips from the chippy even though it wasn't dripping in fat like would happen if you did buy it from the chippy. Each large fillet has only got 245 calories and I was quite surprised about that, there IS 11g of fat in it though and that's because of the breadcrumbs but I still recommend this fish because if you're feeling good on your diet you can always take some of the breadcrumbs off.
