Charlie Bigham’s Chicken Thai Red Curry

Published on August 29th, 2020 Charlie Bigham

This is my third Charlie Bigham offering. I just can’t help myself when I see it reduced to half price (meals typically retail at about £7-8). Whilst I bought this on offer, it does feed two, so the £3.50-£4 RRP per person is comparable to standard ready meals. It takes a little more time than… [Read More]

Charlie Bigham’s Goan Fish Curry

Published on August 1st, 2020 Charlie Bigham

My second Charlie Bigham meal – this time with rice. It’s already in better stead than the Moroccan Chicken Tagine. It comes with some foil you need to wrap around the curry and the rice, which are in two separate containers. It then goes in the oven for about half an hour. You can really… [Read More]

John West Creations Salmon with Wild Rice & Lentils, Honey & Ginger

Published on September 14th, 2019

This dish has lots of salmon – big chunks of it. The salad itself is very sweet. But otherwise is nice and healthy, with plenty of lentils and chickpeas. It’s definitely not very big overall – more of a side dish than a main. Think this was just under £2, which for salmon is not… [Read More]

Kershaws Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas

Published on September 13th, 2013

At first sight, this looks promising, and looks as though it really could be the fish and chip shop experience from the comfort of one’s own home. In anticipation I sprinkled salt, added vinegar and squirted ketchup to accompany what was, I hope, going to be a nice meal. The mushy peas are pretty good,… [Read More]

Young’s Salmon Pie

Published on July 26th, 2013

Nice parsley flavours in the creamy sauce, and the fish is tasty but turns slightly chewy in the microwave. It’s worth noting that the fish portions in here are meagre in size! The cheap cheddar cheese (try saying that over and over again really fast!) they’ve topped it with is welcome but seems like a… [Read More]

Iceland Crispy Battered Prawns with a Sweet Chilli Sauce

Published on April 12th, 2013

The chilli sauce is very thick, overly sweet, and generally quite sickening. Those who have read the Iceland Lemon Chicken review will have a deja vu moment here. However, the sauce is actually edible this time! The prawns are tasty and crispy. For £2, if this were a takeaway I’d be pretty impressed. It’s worth… [Read More]

Young’s Salmon Fillet Dinner

Published on February 16th, 2013

1 of your 5 a day- a good start! Creamy, tasty sauce, lots of parsley. Sweet carrots, flavoursome peas and nice, soft potatoes. The salmon fillet is a little on the small side, but is bone-free and has a strong salmon flavour. £2, Iceland. A pleasantly healthy meal!

John West Tuna Fillets Sweet Thai Red Chilli

Published on December 2nd, 2012

Tasty, nice Thai flavours, goes well with Sainsbury’s own Thai Rice. 40 seconds only makes it lukewarm, so ignore the microwave instructions and pop it in for a bit longer. Overpriced for the amount you get, so loses marks there.
