“ Brand: Quorn / Type: Frozen Food „
I am veggie and have been for about 15/16 years. I don't eat fish but found these on offer so thought I would try them. You can find them in the Quorn/veggie freezer section. They do look like the 'real' thing and have a similar colour. I thought they might be good to have in so when my non-veggie husband fancies fish and chips then this is an easy veggie option for me. I wouldn't personally rush out and buy them again as they best way i can describe them is 'ok' - yes they look like the real thing but they are very dry. The are perfectly edible but dry - make sure you have something to drink when you eat them! As with most of the rest of the Quorn range they are low fat and healthy but the taste is dissapointing. At least I got them when they were on offer and not full price!
I am a vegetarian but I do eat fish so you may wonder why I thought about trying these. Well for a start I was just plain curious. Having been a veggie for 15 years I can't remember what meat tastes like to compare the quorn products to it, but with eating fish I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to compare the fake to the real thing. For a start they are really healthy, as are alot of the Quorn range with just 66 calories and 0.5 saturates per finger. So that is always a bonus and a good incentive to eat them. They are found in the freezer section with the meat free and are easy to cook - exactly the same how you would cook a normal fishfinger. They also look like a fish finger so ticking all the boxes so far. Now for the taste. I found them delicous. I wouldn't say they had a real fishy flavour so if your used to the good brands of fish finger don't expect them to be the same taste. However, they were far more fish tasting than some of the cheap fish finger brands I have had which are almost all potatoe. I think what really won me over with these is the lovely lemon flavour they have. I love lemon mayoinnaise on my fish finger sandwiches, however, I tried these plain to get the full flavour and so I was very pleastantly suprised my the lemon flavour which I got. I would def buy these again, however, as they are more costly than the Birds Eye Omega 10 at the moment then I will probably stick to the real thing for the moment purely due to price. As I said before I do eat fish but I am always on the look out for healthy foods and I do think it is good how Quorn are promoting suistanble oceans by providing this alternative.
