Aldi’s Seabass Fillets won silver at the Grocer Own Label Awards 2016 and were awarded one star at the Great Taste Awards 2016, joining The Fishmonger Cod Fishcakes that also won silver at the Grocer Own Label Awards 2016.
YouTube chef, Ian Haste, said: “We should all be eating more fish, it’s crucial for our brains, bones and body.
“Many fish options are loaded with nutrients, plus high in protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids; it’s great that Aldi has added these new lines to its range, making quality, great tasting fish affordable and accessible to everyone.”
Aldi’s new seafood lines will be launching in stores from the end of September to early October (Wednesday 28th September and Wednesday 12th October) just in time for Seafood Week from 7-16th October.
