Fish For Thought | Seafood Recipe Box

I adore seafood but don't cook it often enough at home, so when I came across Fish For Thought, I couldn't wait to give them a try.  

Fish For Thought* are a small family business based in Cornwall, and their produce come directly from the Cornish sea. The fish and seafood are all sustainably sourced and their seafood recipe boxes are delivered right to your doorstep. Choose from a weekly box, or every 2/4/8 weeks through their subscription service. 

The seafood recipe boxes comes with all the ingredients packed up in portion sizes along with a recipe card, and most of the meals can be cooked in around 30 minutes.    

We got a box for 3 adults, and the portions were hugely generous and enough to feed 4 people. The ready packs of sauces, veg, carbs and fish make it very easy to assemble prior to cooking.

The seafood, potatoes and vegetables are superior quality to anything you can buy in the supermarkets. The fish is so fresh and really does taste like they've come right out of the sea. The potatoes were some of the most sweet and fragrant I've tasted in a long time and the vegetables all had great flavour in them, not watery or tasteless.

We all enjoyed our plates very much, although we did have debates whether we liked the sauces that went with them or not. The sundried tomato dressing was much like a vinergette which I found too sharp, but G enjoyed it very much.

The spicy tomato sauce was far too sweet and not very spicy at all, so we oomphed it up with a sprinkling of salt and some tabasco sauce.

The saffron sauce was quite mild and although pleasant enough, it lacked excitement.

Whilst the sauces didn't pack enough wow, the seafood itself and all the additional ingredients did, so I will definitely be ordering the occasional seafood box from them. The recipes are a good way of testing out new flavours and new ways of cooking too.
