Last year I did a product review on another Starfish brand product, their crispy breaded shrimp (If you want to check out the shrimp review click HERE). I loved it so I was really looking forward to this crispy battered cod. Battered cod is such a treat for me, I have always loved it and would be listed under one of my favorite meals. And let’s just face it, being gluten free means it is incredibly hard to find and not even possible in a restaurant.
So knowing what a treat breaded cod is, and having such a good experience with Starfish’s crispy breaded shrimp, I can not tell you how disappointed I was in this product. I was crushed!!
I baked the product per the directions and it was NOT crispy. In fact, the batter was mealy. The texture really ruined the whole experience for me. Handsome hubby did not enjoy it either and we ended up going out for dessert.
I really wanted to love this product, not only for being such a favorite meal for me and it was gluten free, but also because the box states 0 trans fat, Soy Free, Milk Free, Egg Free, and Peanut Free. It is also marked as a sustainable seafood being wild caught, all natural.
Now of course… I did BAKE this product, I have no doubt that if i were to deep fry it the whole experience would have been different!! Let’s all just agree… frying makes everything better!! BUT I didn’t enjoy this at all so I wont be purchasing it again to find out if in fact deep frying makes it better. I would not purchase this specific product again, but since I had such a good experience with their shrimp I would try other gluten free products of theirs.
This product is a good product for people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity, Gluten intolerance or on a gluten free diet because none of the ingredients contain gluten and is packaged as a gluten free product.
