Earlier this week we got to try Fishpeople prepared dinners. While eating Paleo typically means trying to cook our own food–using whole ingredients–there are times when it’s easy to wax nostalgic for simple, heat-and-eat dinners. So, when I read about Fishpeople, I was intrigued.
Their whole gig is centered around making healthy, natural dinners from sustainably harvested fish, and natural ingredients. And even better, two of their dishes are pretty close to Paleo (there is corn starch in there, but I threw caution to the wind). But, you know, how does it taste? Surprisingly good. Like, fancy restaurant seafood dish good. And it was ready in about 4 minutes.
I tried the Coconut Yellow Curry Tuna, and my wife tried Thai Coconut Lemongrass Tuna. Both were excellent (The salmon dishes both have cream in them, so we stayed away from those). We cooked up some stir fry veggies and poured the soup-like dinner on top. Added some pepper and ate them to the bottom in minutes.
On their website, they talk a lot about what they call the Food Circle. Basically, it’s all about choosing the best, healthiest, most sustainably caught fish they can find, and preparing it with all natural ingredients, prepared well and without a bunch of fillers. All of this makes a tasty recipe. And they nailed it.
It’s an Oregon company, and already available in our New Seasons markets and supposedly Whole Foods. I’m trying to figure out if you can order them online, because I plan on having a case handy. They store well, and they’re perfect for camping as well, as you cook them by merely dropping them into boiling water; right in their pouches.
They were very good, very quick to prepare, and had no clean up. So, they’ll definitely be something we turn to for those moments when heat-and-eat just sounds too good to not.
