Birds Eye Simply Cod Fillets
Advantages: Nice moist, tasty fish with an ungreasy batter to it
Disadvantages: None its tasty is this!
Of late I have ditched eating so much meat. I find fish and vegetable dishes that bit lighter on my tummy and fresher in taste somehow and really fancied some battered cod and so took to Asda to get me some and that's when I came across this fish costing me £3.00 for four portions which are deemed to be 'large'.
These fishes comes in a dark blue box with a photograph of the battered fish on the front of it and we are told that they are Birds Eye 4 Large Cod Fillets 'Simply' and there is an at a glance nutritional chart shown. On the back of the box other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, the ingredients and allergy advice is given, there is a full nutritional chart stated as well as cooking instructions and contact details for Birds Eye are given. Nice enough and minimal packaging this is.
Well I bought this fish in the battered variety though I am aware this comes in breadcrumbs too however I've had a lot of fish lately covered in breadcrumbs so basically fancied a bit of a change. To cook this it takes about half an hour in the oven from frozen which is simply enough to do of course and it comes out of the oven golden, crunchy looking and rather large though not massive to be fair.
This is beautiful, good quality cod...simply lol. White fish with no bones or skin at all within any of my four battered fishes, its flaky, moist and unsalted fish. The batter is quite thick, not stodgy but crispy and light and delicate in flavour, unsalted and fresh and there's plenty of it.
I really do like this fish. For me nothing beats battered cod from the chip shop however this is a nice simple and easy fish portion to cook of high quality and nice flavour and its not so bad for your hips and arteries as that, that comes from the chippy and not so pricey either lol.
