      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A quick and convenient meal

      **Just a quick note this was my suggestion and I suggested BirdsEye Simply Salmon Fillets in a Lemon & Herb sauce not the product above although in the same range. My review will now be on Birds Eye Simply Salmon Fillets in a lemon & herb sauce!**

      I quite like fish, especially Salmon but I also like quick and convenient meals which save me alot of time and messing about so when Birds Eye introduced their Birds Eye Simply range I couldn't wait to try them out.

      The first product I tried was Birds Eye Simply 2 Chunky Wild Pink Salmon Fillets, with a lemon and herb butter sauce.

      The box it comes in is a sophistocated looking box with a picture of two salmon fillets inside their steam packs. It says in the corner Bake Perfect Bag, Oven Cook from frozen in 25 mins! Sounded brill to me, fish which I liked and simply pop them in the oven, now that's convenience!

      Taking them out of the box frozen you are met by a silver bag which is see through on top so you can see the frozen, deep pink salmon fillet inside with a twirl of herby butter sitting on top. Popping them in the oven I waited the required time as they cooked.

      Taking them out of the oven the bags were puffed up and steamy, the salmon fillets looked a lighter pink and the butter had melted all over. I simply cut the end of the bag being careful not to let the steam within burn my fingers and I poured the salmon fillet with it's melted butter onto my plate.

      I have to admit I was very impressed by these. One of these were as promised quite chunky, a fair size making a healthy and tasty meal alongside some veg and 'tatoes. The salmon seemed succulent and flaky - nothing like some of the processed crap you can buy these days. It tasted like freshly cooked Salmon of a really good quality. The butter made the tender fish a little moist and I found there was just enough, if there was anymore it possibly could've made the fillet a little sickly. It added enough to the fillets without taking anything away from the salmon itself as I found that very tasty on it's own. The lemon in the butter adds a little sweetness and the herbs offer a savoury buttery moistness to the fillet overall.

      There is only one bad thing for me and that is now and then they do taste a little too salty but from looking at the nutritional info they don't look like they contain alot of salt at all which is a little strange.

      Each fillet contains;
      200 calories
      sugars trace
      12.0g fat
      6.5g saturates
      0.8g salt

      For anybody who likes salmon and wants a quick and convenient meal these are most definitely worth a try, don't be put off by the butter as it takes nothing away from the Salmon fillet at all and it is in fact quite tasty too.
