Young's Extra Large Fish Fillets
Advantages: Yummy; Massive; Loads of fish; Wicked batter
Disadvantages: Expensive when they're full price
I brought a box of these Extra Large Cod Fillets from Youngs because they was on special offer and cost £2.99 for 2 fillets, the normal price is £5.00 and I don't think I'd pay that very often for them because you can get fresh cod cheaper than that!
I know the price sounds loads for 2 pieces of frozen battered fish but they're massive and not much smaller than a large fish out of my local chippy. Even when they're frozen it looks nice, you can tell that when the batter's cooked it's going to be tasty and you can see the bubbles in the batter straight away.
You see it's even better value for money when you cut into because the batter isn't majorly thick on the fish so you're really buying a massive piece of cod instead of just extra batter on the ends to make it look bigger than it is! lol The batter is lovely and crispy, it's got a bit of a greasy taste but you expect that from battered ANYTHING so I can't hold that against this fish! It's not exactly dripping with fat but sometimes you do get the flavour of grease coming through with the batter.
The fish is gorgeous. It's long and chunky and has cooked wicked in the oven. The fish stays moist and has got a lovely texture when you eat it, it flakes wicked like fresh fish and I loved getting a big piece of fish on my fork with just a bit of batter.... yummy! I think the batter and fish go perfect together and I deffo think this is as good as fish I get from the chippy, I say that because of the batter being so nice and crunchy because in the chippy by me it's usually too soggy and mega fatty.
I had tartare sauce with mine and put salt and vinegar on it too, I had it with chips and the meal was as good as fish and chips from the chippy! I also like that the flavour of the batter isn't too strong because I think that's a problem with frozen fish and it can sometimes overtake the taste of the fish, this doesn't happen with these fillets though because the batter has got a nice light flavour the goes proper nice with the cod.
Recommended... delish massive fillets of battered cod that are a bargain on special offer!!!
