For the first time in forever…..Amazon has finally supplied enough fish for two people, lol. That was how I felt when I opened up this box the other day. Like, yes! You finally are feeding normal people who like to eat food! Anyhoo, let me review this meal that contained two good size pieces of salmon.
Basic Info about Amazon Boxes:
- Feeds two adults.
- All ingredients are included except the Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil, Salt and Pepper.
- Prices vary between $17 to $22
- Directions are included with picture of the final meal
- Most ingredients are already chopped for you but there are some ingredients that need to be chopped or cut/sliced while something else is cooking.
Now on to my review of the Seared Salmon (with sweet corn & edamame succotash):
- Cost $19.99 (the fish meals are always more expensive than the chicken or beef meals)
- Net Weight of box: 2 pounds 3 ounces (0.99 kg)
- 2 pieces of Salmon. There will be no leftovers, therefore, if you want leftovers for the next day purchase an additional piece of salmon. There will be enough of the sweet corn & edamame succotash left over for the next day.
- Lasts up to 2 to 3 days in the fridge before it expires. Expiration is always on the box.
- Made the dinner between 30 to 45 minutes.
- You will need a pan that you can use on the stove and also place in the oven. I do not currently have a cask iron pan so I tend to just transfer the food over from a frying pan to another pan for the oven.
- The pieces of salmon aren’t necessary thick so the recommended time of searing for 2 minutes on each side is on point.
- One great thing about Amazon is that any meal that requires onions are already pre-chopped for you. So no more crying like a river.
- My only gripe about this mean is the amount of quinoa that is given to you. My husband doesn’t necessary like quinoa so it wasn’t a problem for him but I prefer more of it. I do suggest adding about two to three more tablespoons of it to the meal (or even more).
- This meal was one of the easiest to make and it really did have a lot of flavor.
- Scale of 1 to 10 for a Meal regarding taste: 8; with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest.
- Scale of 1 to 10 for an Amazon Meal Kit regarding taste: 8
- Scale of 1 to 10 on level of difficulty: 1; 1 being the easiest and 10 being the most difficult.
- Overall, this meal was pretty quick and easy. Shit, I love quick and easy, when it comes to cooking. It can be easily replicated also without purchasing a meal kit. It also had flavor to it due to the sweet corn and edamame succotash (who is that Warner Brothers character what is aways using the word succotash??? Anyone??).
- I would purchase this again for sure! Due to the price point, this saves money because a piece of salmon could cost you about $10 to $20 and this whole meal was $19.99. And who doesn’t like to save money?
