Blackening is a cooking technique where meat or fish is rubbed in oil or butter, dredged in the spice blend, and then cooked under a very high heat. This is a great way to cook delicate white fish like bream, giving it a richly coloured and highly flavoured crust. For a dish that’s on the table in twenty minutes, this simple showstopper really is the catch of the day!
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
