What makes our tuna pockets taste so good? It's the fusion of real ingredients. So you get to savour the spices of North Africa with tuna, smoked paprika, cumin and chilli. All gently slow cooked to lock in the flavour.
High in protein, low in sugar, and a good source of omega-3.
I don't seem to be able to fault the tuna Pocket range. I have gone from someone who actively disliked tuna to someone who has acquired an intense liking for it over the space of months: this is entirely due to the new approach Sealord has taken to their products - experimenting with different flavours and ingredients so as to extend the appeal to a wider range of consumers.
This one is my favourite to date. Harissa is one of those spice combinations that is just hot enough to intrigue but still sufficiently mild to be suitable for those with more delicate palates. It combines beautifully with the tuna to produce the perfect taste. The heat is mild so that you can really taste the lemon as well. I found I could eat a whole pack at one sitting - then to my dismay I remembered that I had a friend coming round to help me review it, so there was a sudden unscheduled phone call to ask him to pick up another packet at the supermarket on the way over.
We both loved the texture. There are large chunks of tuna in the packet with the lemon and harissa flavour infused right through them. We agreed that when you bit into them you really felt that you were eating proper food rather than the mashed-up apology for fish that you get in some canned foods. I kept the accompaniments plain because I wanted us to be able to get the full effect of the tuna, so I divided it between two plates with some plain bread and butter and avocado chunks to accompany it.
Later in the week I was asked to take a plate for an afternoon tea, so I purchased some vol-au-vents. I could have made them myself but I just did not have the time, and the bought version always looks more professional than mine. I filled them with tuna mixture with the addition of a little plain mayonnaise so they would not be too dry. I was going to take a photograph but they disappeared almost as soon as I put the plate down - so unfortunately, although I saw and heard the reactions and can confirm that everyone liked them, the evidence had been eaten!
This is yet another food item that I will keep handy for when I need a quick meal ingredient. But I won't make the mistake of having just one packet available: I will ensure there are two or even three on standby just in case.
