Birds Eye Fish Fingers Hint of Lemon
Advantages: Tastes Good, Great in sandwiches
Disadvantages: Lemon hard to detect.
I saw these Limited Edition Fishfingers in the freezers at Morrisons in sale at £1.00 for 10. I was a bit dubious as I thought that the Lemon flavour added may be a little overpowering but for £1.00 I figured it was worth buying them to find out.
Yesterday lunch time I couldnt decide what to have to eat and just wanted some thing no fuss and quick. I opened the freezer to find Birds Eye Fish Fingers with a Hint of Lemon staring back at me so thought 'why not'. I got them out along with a bag of frozen chips, placed them on a baking tray and into the oven with them.
Cooking Instructions: Grill straight from freezer for best results.
Medium Grill: Pre heat grill, cook fish fingers for 12 - 15 minutes until crisp and golden, turning occasionally.
Ovenbake: 230c/Fan 210c/Gas Mark 8. Preheat oven, place fish fingers onto a baking tray then place in the oven on the top shelf. Cook for 12 - 15 minutes turning half way through.
Ensure that fishfingers are piping hot and do not refreeze after defrosting. I do think whilst cooking fish fingers you do need to keep an eye on them, they can go from just about cooked to over cooked in the blink of an eye (well maybe not that fast) and they're not very nice when the texture is nothing but crunchy.
I love fish fingers, they are my all time favourite snack food and I'm quite partial to a fish finger sandwich. Two slices of bread covered in butter, four fishfingers and tomato ketchup, bootiful. So as I was saying I had these for my dinner yesterday and I have to say I wasnt particularly impressed. Dont get me wrong the fish fingers themselves were lovely I just found it hard to detect the hint of lemon. I had four of these and each one was pretty much the same so I was a little disappointed. Maybe I got the one box where they forgot to squeeze some lemon on.
So all in all the fish fingers were nice, they were very tasty just lacking that hint of lemon. So they were really just normal birds eye fish fingers to me. I may try them again just to see if I did get a bad batch but probably only if they are still on offer the next time I go shopping.

Allergy advice: Contains Fish and Wheat. May also contain bones.
Birds Eye also do a Wild Pink Salmon Fish Finger which is really tasty and my opinion much better than the hint of lemon option.
