Yes it tastes as nice as major brands but is a bit on the small side-one per person
The Iceland one's a wee bit bigger but £5
I don't like it cold so warm in water and serve with butter and a twist of lemon with a nice salad.
PS remember to slowly defrost thoroughly first

Thanks. It's only going to be used to do a prawn & lobster cocktail (salad) so I don't need much meat, just needed to know if it tasted ok as some people were saying it was horrible.
I might give these a try. Do you know the price of them please?

I do t think they're that big tbh, so if you like seafood you may as well eat both.

Thanks for your help xx

Aw snap. That's what we're getting ours for. Just hope they taste good.
having said that above - I also tried the cooked tailed king prawns in tempura batter with chilli sauce - pack of 10 for £3 I think - they were very nice

I bought the whole lobster from Iceland - it was nice BUT very little flesh when stripped - would not buy again!
The crayfish in a pot is very nice in a cocktail.

Honestly have you got a local fishmonger near by? Go and have a look I found ours much cheaper. Even threw in a bag of muscles too.

There's only one place that sells fresh seafood near us, and he has to order in lobster/crab and we've left it too late.

I'll just get the Lidl one, they can either like it or lump it.
