“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Sauces „
When it comes to fish dishes I love them! I love all fishy things from Sword fish to mussels anything from the sea (apart from crab sticks which of course sort of don't lol) I adore.
In my household we eat fish 3-4 times a week and usually we have it served with potatoes and green beans and things but occasionally we'll have a nice crisp salad and say some massive King Prawns and that's when I do like a bit of seafood sauce to dab me dinner into!
My Mother goes mad as I slap this over my fish but hey we're all different and me I like it but then I am a rather saucy person and I have loads of different sauces on my dinner usually!
Clear glass jar with a black screw on/off lid to the top of it. On that there is a gold disc shape of which pops up slightly to let you know it's been opened (or tampered with) and the best before date is clearly stamped on it. Around the middle of the jar there is a turquoise sticky label and on the front of that I'm told it's Sainsbury's Seafood Sauce 'An ideal dressing for prawns, other seafood & salads' and there is an at a glance nutritional pye chart displayed on there. Then one side of the jar I'm told how to store the product (keep refrigerated after opening and consume within 6 weeks), contact details for Sainsbury's are given, I'm told it's suitable for Vegetarians and Coeliacs, size is stated (available in 250ml for 89p or 500ml for £1.85 only in Sainsbury's). and there is a bar-code on there. On the other side of the jar full nutritional information is given along with allergy advice and ingredients being listed. It's a nice enough jar and I like being able to see the product through it (one I purchased a couple of weeks ago I couldn't and it did me head right in lol!).
The Sauce Itself....
A light orange creamy colour and of good consistency (not too thin and certainly not to thick) it is made up of eggs, tomato puree, spirit vinegar and dashes of a lot of other things too. It's smooth and glossy with no bits at all in it.
Taste wise it's really lovely and by far (at the moment my favourites seafood sauce) in the taste stakes department. It has a lovely fresh flavour of a creamy blended sauce with a hint of tomato flavour popping through mixed with a hint of sweetness (from sugar) and a touch of sourness coming through spirit and cider vinegars. It's really highly flavoursome and I love the sweet and sour flavour that comes through and the way it's so creamy on the tongue without ever feeling greasy.
A really excellent buy this simply tastes so nice. It's got a great body to it and tastes really light so compliments alot of different fish dishes! It isn't too harsh and I love the smoothness of it and this delivers a kick but it doesn't blow your head clean off your shoulders either!
