If your family is anything like mine, fish makes an appearance on the menu regularly! I love fish for a quick and healthy meal option. Even with fish though, I need to figure out what to do with it, how I’ll cook it and for how long. So I absolutely love the idea of fish minus the fuss with The Saucy Fish Co. line!
The Saucy Fish Co. is all about that idea – creating perfect pairings of fish and sauce and making our mid-week dinners easy and delicious. Available in both cooked and ready to eat and frozen with a variety of fish and sauce options, there is something for everyone and every need.
You’ll find a variety of inspiring flavour combinations to chose from. I tried several varieties of the frozen fish and sauce.
Each one comes with the sauce and a cooking bag. I loved that part! No need to worry about how, or how long to cook the fish.
You simply place the frozen fish in the bag and cook according to the instructions. Heat the sauce while the fish cooks. The fish came out perfectly cooked and I was ready to go with the simple, flavourful sauce. And yes, you cook it from frozen, so you don’t need to worry about defrosting. Just grab from the freezer and enjoy.
The Saucy Fish Co. also has cooked and ready to eat fish with sauce options, that you can simply heat and enjoy anytime. Perfect for really rushed nights.

Cook’s Notes for Salsa Verde Tilapia with Fresh Salsa
There are an endless number of ways to enjoy The Saucy Fish Co. fish and sauce. I wanted to show one way I enjoyed it at my house.
I started with The Saucy Fish Co. Tilapia with Salsa Verde Sauce. I made a quick, simple and delicious fresh salsa to accompany the Tilapia with Salsa Verde and cooked up some tortilla sticks along with my fish for a little crunch. And all made while the fish was cooking!
The fresh salsa was a wonderful complement to the wonderful fish and salsa verde sauce and it was so easy to put together. I cooked the tortilla strips in the oven right alongside the fish, to make things easy.
