Costco "Ultimate Fish Sticks"--yay or nay?

butterfat | Jul 14, 2008 12:50 PM

I'm very new to shopping at Costco. (It was my husband's idea to join, I am just going along for the ride.)

I'm down with the delicious (MSG-laden?) cheap rotisserie chickens, the fresh mozzarella, the giant cans of roasted peppers, and (most recently) the frozen salmon burgers, which I believe I first heard about here. We tried them this weekend, grilled, and they were perfectly yummy served with a delicious fresh mango salsa. They are made with wild Alaskan salmon and the ingredient list is surprisingly simple and pronounceable.

So now I am looking for more preformed frozen fish products!

Just kidding, kind of, but seriously--I am pregnant and know I should be eating (non-mercury-laden) fish, but fish in a recognizably fishlike form creeps me out a bit. (In pregnancy my tastes are reverting to my childhood preferences--scary, right?--and I HATED all fish and seafood as a child, so this is not surprising.)

So, right next to the salmon burgers in the freezer case were the "ultimate fish sticks" made of wild Alaskan pollock and claiming to be very lightly coated in panko bread crumbs.

I know there are some Costco shoppers on the boards--has anyone tried these? What is the verdict?

I would make my own tartar sauce to go with, in case that makes a difference . . .
