Birds Eye Simply Cod Fillets
Advantages: Super tasting, good quality fish
Disadvantages: Slightly expensive
I like Fish; I don't love it, but I like it and from time to time I really enjoy eating it. The sorts of fish I usually have are good quality fish fingers. I usually eat these because I sometimes buy them for my son !
I like Cod or Haddock usually in Breadcrumbs or batter and I also prefer fish that isn't chunky. I much prefer it if it is in a sort of fish shape !
I love to have fish with either chips (Home made) or baby new potatoes and sweet corn or salad usually.
I was in Asda again recently and I wanted to get myself and my partner some nice fish for dinner. I saw they had this Birds Eye (Simply) 4 large cod fillets in crunchy golden breadcrumbs. It looked appetising although I thought It was a bit pricy at £3.54.
Birds Eye describe this fish in the following way ' Simply, from Birds eye uses only the freshest, chunkiest and flakiest cod fillets. Then we coat them in our very own light and crunchy, golden breadcrumb to create simply irremediable fish'. I have just realised that they refer to the fish as being 'chunky'. Personally I wouldn't call it chunky. I would say it is about medium. I have seen far chunkier than this and as I have stated I don't like chunky fish. I cooked this fish for about 35 minutes in the oven. The recommended cooking time is 25 minutes, but this is only a guideline and this will vary from oven to oven. I always like to make sure my fish is very well cooked and I also like a really crispy breadcrumb coating; so I always cook it for slightly longer than suggested.
The fish comes out lovely and crispy crunchy and tastes great. The fish is nice and white throughout and I enjoyed my fish supper greatly.

This is a great tasting fish from Birds Eye. Whilst it may be a little expensive; if you buy fish at the fish and chip shop these days its very costly, so if you are trying to save money, and want a decent piece of fish to eat, I highly recommend trying this one out.
Summary: Lovely fish peices; first rate
