Whole Foods recently gave me the opportunity to try out their vacuum packed frozen seafood entrees, which come in the following varieties:
- Stuffed sole Monterey ($6.99 each for 6 oz. portion)
- Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified crab cakes ($5.99 each for 6 oz. portion)
- Stuffed salmon pinwheels with spinach and feta ($5.99 each for 6 oz. portion)
- Shrimp teriyaki ($9.99/lb.)
- Swordfish steaks with Mediterranean-herb marinade ($12.99/lb.)
- Sockeye salmon with red miso marinade ($10.99/lb.)
- MSC-certified stuffed true cod with bay shrimp and crab ($4.99 each for 6 oz. portion)
- Mini-MSC-certified crab and shrimp bites ($4.99 each for 6 oz. portion)
Wanted to try those yummy-looking salmon pinwheels, but my store didn’t carry them. So, we went with the sockeye salmon with red miso marinade, which MashupDad grilled up nicely last night.
This was really tasty. He was skeptical because he thought it would be “too fishy,” but ate quite a bit and gave a thumbs up to the marinade. And, since it was vacuum packed, you couldn’t even so much tell that it had been frozen.
Whole Foods suggested sauteeing the sockeye salmon with red miso marinade up with some bok choy and topping your udon noodles (ooh, I have some of those!). It was good grilled up and served with potatoes and spinach, too — and the fact that it was pre-marinated made it super-easy.
I’d definitely pick this up again and keep it in the freezer for a quick but healthier weeknight meal.
Here’s info on Whole Foods Market’s seafood sustainability rating program. It’s useful that this is color coded, to help people make quick informed decisions.
Whole Foods Market provided a gift card for me to try out their seafood entrees. I was not otherwise compensated for this post, and all thoughts and opinions here are my own.
