Korma Fish Curry – Trader Joe’s – Food Review

The microwave has never smelled this good.  If this was just a big bowl of the sauce, I’d be perfectly happy.  Complex flavors in the sauce kept the mouth happy.  Little bits of seasoning were like Easter eggs in video games, pleasant surprises that made each bite a slightly different adventure.  Be aware, this is not for the squeamish.  Along with the flavor is a medium heat in the mouth changing to a hotter burn in the throat.

The fish was firm and not oily.  It’s hard to tell if the fish added any flavor to the dish because the sauce overwhelmed it.  My dinner contained a nice large thick piece of fish.  The basmati rice was also nice having separate dry grains of rice with a firm texture.  The rice had a slightly different taste, most likely due to the seasoning in the rice.  A bite of the rice also mediates some of the heat from the sauce.korma fish curry, trader joe, nutrition, frozen dinner

For anyone liking good spicy food, this should be at the top of your list to try.

Trader Joe’s Lamb Vindaloo – Food Review

Trader Joe, Lamb Vindaloo, Indian, spicy, food, frozen, reviewSeptember 4, 2016

The rice is nice, not as nutty as I like.  The sauce is awesome, like a golf foursome.  The heat is neat, but will sweat your feet.

The first taste starts as a nice multiflavored tomato based sauce which fools you into a sense of complacency while the heat starts to build in the mouth over the next minute to a level that will have most people calling the nearest fire department. The rice actually tastes better after a mouthful of high heat and helps somewhat to mediate the fire in the mouth.  However, it’s best to have a glass of ice water around to help put out the fire.  Phew!
