“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Seafood „
I bought a takeaway kit from Tescos which had several dishes in, there was also an option to buy this prawn toast as a side dish so I did for £2.50, although there is an offer if you buy 5 for £10 I think.
This prawn toast comes in a packet with a see through lid so you can see the product. To cook just peel off the lid and put the whole black tray on a baking tray in the oven and heat at around 180 for 10 - 15 mins until it feels piping hot as there are fish products and you dont want to get food poisoning.
The prawns are mashed and then pasted onto the toast, there is a good thick layer of prawns and even after cooking the texture is both crunchy and soft at the same time. The toast is a little bit odd as its been reheated but it still works and tastes just as good as from the takeaway.
Chinese takeaway is not good for you, there is a lot of fat and salt in this product, however if you share it as part of a meal and dont eat all eight slices to yourself I suppose its not too bad.
The toast only tastes good immediately after cooking, I tried to eat the last slice today for lunch and it was disgusting cold.
The product is nut free but it says the factory was used before for something with nuts so do be careful if you have an allergy.
Overall I would buy this again but would make sure it was finished up on the day so as not to waste it.
I brought these in Tesco the other day because I fancied some Chinese food but was skint so couldn't order one in, I wouldn't have bothered because supermarket prawn toasts are usually proper naff but this one was created by Ken Hom so I thought I'd give them a go.
They're yummy, you have to cook them for a few minutes and this isn't a ready to eat product so don't try to scoff it straight out of the fridge or you'll probably end up with food poisoning!!!
You get 8 triangles of toast in a pack and you pay £2.15 for that, thinking about it that's not much cheaper than buying them from the Chinese but they're actually loads nicer than from the take away by me!
The toasts are crunchy and delish, I cooked mine and let them go cold again because I prefer it like that. There are 31% prawns in this so that means you get a thick layer on the top of the toast, not the thin pastey looking stuff that is usually on supermarket prawn toasts. It tastes strong of prawn but it's also been seasoned with pepper and other spices because the prawn filling deffo doesn't taste as bland as usual. Even in the Chinese by me the prawn toasts are quite boring because the mashed up prawn is mega bland even though it's thick, this is mashed prawn with SOMETHING else that gives it a wicked zing.
The top of the toast is covered in sesame seeds and they're lovely and crunchy with a delish burned taste, there are some spring onions mixed in with the prawns and the flavour of them goes proper nice with the sesame seeds. You know when you get a flavour that just is sooooo yummy mixed with another flavour, that's spring onions and sesame seeds...... give it a try!
I will deffo buy these again, they're pretty dear for what they are but I'm not complaining because they're so yummy. Each prawn toast has got 80 calories and 6.1g fat so that's not brill news but they're so yummy that I don't care, it's not something I'm going to be eating all the time anyway so it doesn't matter that much.
The only bad point about them is that they've got a bit of a greasy aftertaste, it's nothing major and won't make you feel sick or anything like that but it's still there and not the nicest aftertaste.
