Fish Free Fish Style Long Name Fingers

Stephen is toying with the idea of taking fish out of his diet. He's not had any fish for over a month now and he's slowly increasing the types of vegetables he can eat so he's not just left with a diet of mashed potatoes. We thought this would be the perfect time to try Fish Free Fish Style Fingers from VBites (or Redwoods, as they were formerly known)
Looking good in the packet

Just like fish fingers they are simple to cook. We did our is the oven and I made up some sides of sautéed potatoes and french beans. A dollop of tomato ketchup completed the feel of nostalgia. Coming out of the oven they smelt a bit like fish fingers but the second we cut into them the illusion was shattered. Both the texture and the taste where totally off and I went back for a another dollop of ketchup just to make it taste of something. Stephens verdict was that the sautéed potatoes tasted fabulous.

It's like a plate right out of my childhood, when my Mum wasn't cooking. Sorry Mum (but honestly, you can't cook vegetables)

We tend to have either big hits or big misses with the VBites. The Southern Fried Chicken Style are a huge favourite of mine but these fingers? A total miss. In the words of my little brother 'sad face'. Oh well, it was worth a try.


  1. Pity, fishfingers are such an old fave! Thanks for the review :)

  2. Aww such a shame, I love these! If you're looking for something more traditionally fishy you guys should try the fish steaks, the texture is much closer to the real deal.

  3. My daughter loves these - me? Not so much. It's fine, more for her!

  4. Looks like these are a love/hate thing then. We'll definitely try the Steaks some time!
