Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sandwich Fillets Review

These Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sandwich Fillets for the past thirty years stay well in line with the Mrs. Paul’s tradition of quality breaded fish.  Note that this particular product differs from their   Crunchy Fish Fillets, in that there are fewer fillets per box (6 instead of 10), each fish sandwich fillet is close to twice the amount as the crunchy version, and serves as a great foundation for a hearty and tasty fish sandwich.


Benefits, Features, Pros, and Advantages

  • The sandwich fish fillets themselves are packed in a re close-able plastic bag for freshness, and this bag keeps them from picking up odors of, and then assuming the flavor of other foods in the freezer.
  • These Mrs. Paul’s sandwich fillets are 100% Alaska Pollock fish; without fillers.  Alaska Pollock is a mild-tasting yet full-bodied fish (at least, as satisfying as whitefish can be anyhow).  So it accommodates flavoring spices well without dominating the dish, and therefore, compliments other foods well.
  • These breaded, crunchy fish fillets especially designed for kaiser or hamburger rolls from Mrs. Paul’s, have a hunger-enticing, not-too-fishy flavor.
  • You can be re-close the box with built-in tabs that fit into slots on the top flap once you’ve re-sealed the inner bag.
  • This breaded fish has lots of omega-3 fatty acids, that are excellent for promoting heart health.
  • While baking, the fish fillets give off a mouth-watering aroma, so that when they’re finally ready to eat, I’m really anxious to devour them.   This aromatic preamble makes actually eating them even more of a delectable treat.Frank’s hot sauce goes well with these Mrs. Paul’s sandwich fish fillets; my favorite topping to put on them actually.
  • I follow the twenty-eight to thirty minutes in the oven at 425 degrees instructions on the box that in my oven at least, predictably yields very hot, quite crunchy, and golden brown sandwich fish fillets.


Disadvantages, Cons, Problems, and Concerns

  • There’s no indication on the box that these Mrs. Paul’s fish sandwich fillets have been tested for mercury.  Doing that would be comforting for consumers, given the concern these days over heavy metals in the food supply.  But I’ve eaten these for long enough now without discernible problems, that I’m not worried about mercury in fish.
  • Each serving (one fillet) has 190 calories.  Yet I must eat three or four servings to really feel satisfied.  The breading no doubt add lots of extra calories but on the good side, is made from wheat flour.
  • Mrs. Paul’s makes the breading from enriched flour.  I’d prefer that they use all whole grains in their seasoned coatings.The flour they apply appears to be bleached, though it does not say bleached on the box.
  • They also have added sugar and preservatives.  So these fish sandwich fillets definitely qualify as one of those “dreaded” processed dishes.
  • These frozen fish fillets do not heat up well in the microwave.  In fact, the box recommends against microwave preparation.  But an ability to “nuke” them would shorten preparation time significantly.


Product Rating

Though they could be better if prepared with whole grain flour and without sugar, Mr’s Paul’s fish sandwich fillets are good eating nonetheless so long as you don’t stuff too many of them in, too often.  Over all, I truly love the flavor of Mrs. Paul’s breaded fish fillets, including these fish sandwich fillets.  They cost little, are easy to fix, taste delicious, and are on the whole quite good for you.  So I’d highly recommend them to anyone hungry for the taste of good fish.  If you’re a fish lover as I am, you’ll be quite pleased with the meals in which you serve these Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sandwich Fillets.  I’d rate this product at 93 out of 100.
