I was contacted by The Saucy Fish Co. quite awhile ago asking if I would like to try out their new range of fish cakes and of course I happily said yes! I was sent a couple of vouchers that I could use at Tesco's and it took me quite awhile to source out those fish cakes. I went to a few Tesco stores, some quite large and they only had the Salmon Fillets for sale. After quite sometime, I finally found those precious litle fish cakes and quickly snapped up the LAST two packets on the fish aisle. Lucky me!
Here's a bit about The Saucy Fish Co. They started last year and their aim is to make it easier for more people to be adventurous with the flavours they try with fish. They’re big on only using natural ingredients and responsibly sourced fish and their aim is to encourage people, who wouldn’t really have the time or know-how to cook fish otherwise, to enjoy something a little bit different.
The fish cakes come in two flavours – Salmon and Hollandaise or Smoked Haddock and Davidstow Cheddar. Both with a creamy sauce in the centre. The salmon fish cake has 19% salmon and 15% cod while the smoked haddock fish cake has 19% smoked haddock and 15% haddock. The recommended cooking time was spot on, and the fish cakes came out nice and crispy on the outside, moist and soft on the inside. On top of that, the buttery and creamy filling oozes out when it's cut open - YUM. I thought they had a reasonable amount of fish and they were amazingly tasty especially with the melty filling. We really enjoyed them and just wish we have them at our local Tesco.
We also picked up a packet of Salmon Fillet on the way. The packet has two fillets and came with a packet of watercress and creme fraiche dressing. I pan-fried them and the fillets turned out surprisingly good - very moist and fresh. I thought the sauce was a bit undersalted so I seasoned to taste with a bit of salt. The tangy and herby sauce went really well with the oily fish. It was buttery, creamy and the herby, peppery flavours of the watercress came through really well. All in all, another very enjoyable dish, just a little too small for two people!
