Joe’s Crab Shack Eat at Home Salmon – Review
So I love me some fish, especially salmon! The kids like it but I would eat it a couple of nights a week if I could. Last time I was out shopping I looked a bit more in the frozen meal section then I normally do and found these Joe’s Crab Shack meals for 2. Sometimes there are nights when the kids eat sandwiches or frozen meals so I decided to grab a couple of these for the hubby and I.
The other night the kids really weren’t too hungry after grazing on popcorn, sandwiches and such, so Mike and I decided to try one of these. He took care of the cooking of it so I have no pictures but he said it was really easy and you make everything in the microwave. While it was cooking it sure did smell good!
The one he made was the Salmon with Jasmine rice and Broccoli… oh and it has Honey Mustard sauce in it but I don’t care of it so only Mike put it on his. Let me tell you…. that Jasmine rice was AWESOME! I could have eaten like 5 more helpings of it. And the salmon was not dried out at all, it was actually really good. I probably should have made a creamy butter sauce or something for mine since I didn’t use the sauce, but I ate it with the rice so I enjoyed it. My only pet peeve was the broccoli, it was still a little crunchy for me, but we could have fixed that by cooking it a bit longer. It didn’t ruin the meal, I just gave a bit more to Mike.
I picked mine up at Wal-Mart and it was around $8, not bad for a full meal. I think that is the second thing that impressed me after the great taste, you get a LOT of food. It filled me up for sure! I was worried when I saw the size of the fish, but with the rice and veggie, it was perfect. And really considering some of those bags of meals are $8-$9 and feed 3-4 people this isn’t that much more and I think you get more. Highly recommend this one for sure! Very impressed with this being a frozen dinner.
We have another one of these to try, I can’t remember which one but it’s a white fish. I am hoping it’s as good as this one was, now I just want an excuse to buy more!
