Youngs 2 Basa Fillets
Advantages: Tasty, good size, nice batter, gorgeous fish!
Disadvantages: None that I can think of
I recently discovered these in the freezer section at my local Asda and as I was running out of new ideas as to what to make for tea and these were on offer I thought I'd give them a go.
For a box of two basa fillets it cost £3, and I think at the normal price they would have been around £3.70-ish. Considering how lovely they are I would gladly pay the higher price in the future (although I have rushed back to buy some more whilst they're still on offer anyway!).
I have never tried this particular type of fish before so I was slightly skeptical as I'm not keen on very strong tasting fish, but I found the flavour to be very pleasant - much tastier than cod but not very strong or too 'fishy' (if that makes sense?!). It was a lovely flaky white fish, really moist and delicious. The batter was just right, not too soggy an not too thick and the addition of sea salt and cracked black pepper made it very tasty. The portions were of a decent size and all in all they are very good value for a seemingly high quality product. My son had no complaints about the portion size either, which says a lot as he normally has something to say!
The only thing I would do differently next time is perhaps add a squeeze of lemon once I've cooked them, but that is just personal preference and would just add to an already very tasty dish.
