New products hit our stores every week. Some come from big manufacturers or outside vendors while others are ones we develop ourselves. Sometimes these offerings hit the mark while at other times… well, let’s just say they might not quite meet our expectations. I suppose that’s all a part of the process of learning and innovation. But sometimes, there’s an item that really WOWs --- a product that is so good we want to tell everyone we know about it. And that’s exactly what I experienced last night!
My kids love fish, but even though I love to cook just about everything, cooking fish has always scared me a bit. I worry about the smell, about overcooking it, and – of course – about making a dinner that is just not edible. But last night, my husband came home from the store with a Seafood Kit and we decided to give it a try. The kit cost $10.99 and contained 3 nice sized pieces of Nairagi, a soy based sauce, chopped cabbage, bok choy, bean sprouts, Chinese parsley, and lots of ginger. All we had to do was microwave for 6 minutes and it was ready to go. The kit could serve 3 (or two if you have big eaters) and the fish came out perfectly. In fact, my kids (who order Chinese-syle steamed fish whenever they can) loved it! You should have seen the smile on my face when my daughter said, “This is as good as any we’ve had at a restaurant!” NO KIDDING!! And it really was – tender, flavorful, moist AND less than half the price of a restaurant dish!
So… now I’m telling everyone I know about it. Because if you like fish and you want something quick, easy, and guaranteed delicious, you’ve got to try the Nairagi Seafood Kit at Foodland!!
