“ Brand: Young's / Type: Fish „
I brought a pack of these Smoked Haddock Fillets from Youngs when they was on special offer a few weeks ago, I usually buy fresh fish from the fish counter in Morrisons or Tesco but the price of these was too good to ignore.
You get 4 good sized fillets in a bag and they look delish. You can smell the smoke on them even while they're frozen and they cook just like fresh fish once the fillets have unthawed.
The fish fillets are quite thick, they're not MASSIVE but are plenty big enough for one person. I did mine in the oven last night and I deffo think these fillets cook best like that because they don't dry out or anything, it says on the bag that you can nuke them or cook them under the grill as well but when I grilled one the other day I didn't think they tasted so good.
The haddock has got a high quality flavour and looks, smells AND tastes very fresh. They're smoked quite strong but this isn't over powering and the way Youngs have smoked the fillets makes them taste delish.
The fish is meaty and I haven't had one with any bones in yet, if you get a bag and there IS a bone though you can't moan because it must be majorly hard to get every single little fish bone out of a piece of haddock! lol
I like how the fish has got the same texture all the way through it, the thinner end piece doesn't go hard or dry or anything like that and once the haddock is cooked it's dead easy to break it into chunks if you wanted to use it for a fish pie or something. I KNOW you need it raw for PROPER fish pie but my mum does a wicked one with already cooked fish and a yummy sauce with mash on top!
Recommended..... delish smoked haddock fillets that are nearly as good as fresh haddock!!!
