Good quality, but a little overpriced?

Got these in the flash sale and we were very happy with them. Conversely to some earlier reviews we had absolutely loads of prawns in ours, and if anything was a bit lacking it was the squid. The mussels were perhaps a little on the small side, and yes there were a few beards, but I've never purchased mussels yet that were entirely beard-free. Not swimming in water either thanks to the very effective moisture absorber. Despite being an excellent product however, they do seem a bit over-priced, hence 4 stars, but we would buy again.

Good except FROZEN

Every time I buy this from Waitrose (not Ocado), the product is frozen solid as the temperature is set too low. I tell the shop staff every time but they just ignore me. It's dangerous to sell "fresh" food as frozen as people won't know it has in effect defrosted and needs to be used quickly. You cannot sell something advertised as fresh in a frozen state.

No prawns

Beware - despite the packaging claiming to contain 30% prawns, the packet I received contained not a single one. The quality of the other seafood - mainly mussels - that was delivered was absolutely fine.

Absolutely delicious!

Unlike the other reviewer I havent received beards on the mussels, also, I dont mix with tomato sauce, but just olive oil and garlic in the cooking, then toss with the pasta, preferrably linguine, and fresh grated cheese and ground pepper to serve. Yum!

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Pity about the mussels...

This made a tasty enough seafood pasta sauce, just cooked to heat through so as not to make the squid chewy. However, I had to pick over all of the mussels to remove the hairy 'beards' in about half which would have made them unpleasant to eat.
