These salmon pockets taste so good! Enjoy the classic French taste of salmon, zesty lemon, olive oil and herbs all gently and slowly cooked to lock in the flavour.
They are ready to eat so are ideal for picnics and other occasions when you want to have good food with the minimum of fuss. These pockets are low in sugar, high in protein, and a good source of omega-3.
This is one of the newest products from Sealord and it is set to become my favourite in their pocket range. I tried to find something wrong with it, but I was stumped - on every level it is a winner. The price is great, the portions are just the right size, and the taste is nothing short of superb. I think the combination of dill, lemon and salmon is a stroke of genius: you can taste all three ingredients because they complement one another while maintaining their separate identities.
We were having friends around so I made up some bowls with various hors d'oeuvres to serve with a cracker selection. Everyone tasted the salmon, and not one person said it was not to their taste: every single person asked what it was as they would like to go and buy some too. You don't usually get that amount of agreement in a group; there is always one person who dislikes the taste - but no, there was not one dissenter! The only complaint was from the friend who went back for another cracker-and-salmon and found that it was all gone.
Next day I was able to get another packet - I wanted to try it out in a souffle as dill goes really well with eggs, and I thought it would be interesting to see what would happen if I mixed in the contents of the salmon pocket. I had to restrain myself from simply eating the salmon and making the souffle without it, but that would be cheating so I dutifully folded the entire contents into the egg mixture and set it in the oven. While it was cooking, I made a Greek salad and chopped a French loaf into wedges - souffles, as everyone knows, have to be served immediately or they collapse.
The souffle was just as successful as the hors d'oeuvres had been the day before. I was sorry I had not made two because three of us demolished it in no time. Mr 12, who was one of the tasters, does not usually like fish but he really liked this version. He told me he would have eaten three times as much if he could - well, we all know about 12-year-old boys and how bottomless they are because they are growing so fast. But his older sister agreed - she could have eaten more too. And I have to admit it, so could I. So next time I will buy two packets of salmon and make two quiches. Why not? It has to be good for you!
