Ok you can’t beat a good fish finger can you, I love a fish finger and I eat them every now and again. I especially like them on a Tuesday before I go off to pool. My mother had made a white sauce recently with for my parents lunch, I thought I’d use what was left for a quick and easy meal with some mashed potatoes.
They’re Asda’s Chose By You Omega-3 Fish Fingers, described on the box as:
Fabulously tasty and sustainably sourced wild Alaska Pollock fillet wrapped in our crispy golden crumb.
I’d say that was a fair assessment, they’re tasty, the crumb is good and they are always soft and easy to eat… or so I thought , that was until I found a bone!
Above is the offending bone, it’s tiny… ok, ok I know! But it’s a bone, and you probably know by now that I’ve got a massive phobia about fish bones, and for that matter choking. It threw a proverbial massive spanner in the works of me eating this meal…. I had to stop! When I wrote this piece initially I was ready to slate Asda, but it’s not fair, because they advertise on the box that they may contain bones. I suppose I can’t understand why fish fingers have bones in them, but I also understand that they can be missed; I’ve done it when I’m cooking.
I just wanted everyone to be aware that this could happen to you, the bone was tiny and it was advertised on the package…. but it threw me and I had to stop eating the meal, be aware guys – there are hidden bones in your fish fingers!
I think I’m going to have to investigate other brands of fish fingers to see if there are bones in them, I may have to become the fish bone police! This could be quite problematic for people with varying disabilities, especially for people with visual impairments. Come back soon for the dinner parties you’re all waiting for!
