On August 1, 2019, “Quinoa with smoked trout and sea spaghetti seaweed” was awarded a two-star award in the Great Taste 2019 contest. It is worth noting the observations of the three judges:
Judge 1: Interesting concept in combining flavours. The resulting product, not a pate, but a mix of interesting and flavourful ingredients. The fish is well-flaked and tasty, and the lemon sauce is a balanced way of creating a harmony of flavours and textures. The quinoa is well-cooked, the the sea spaghetti alga gives a taste of the sea, but does not overpower Where the texture could be a bit gelatinous, in fact they all work well together and present a tasty and good combination. The seasoning is also right and balanced, making a really good addition to the ‘light meal’ category.
Judge 2: A very interesting pot filled with quinoa and packed with other flavours too. There are smoky notes from the fish, salty sea spaghetti and sweet notes from a creamy sauce, dill and a very clean finish.
Judge 3: Lovely aroma from the fish and smoke. Looks appealing. Moist mixture with textural interest. Fresh, creamy and clean on the palate. Each ingredient plays its part and makes up a whole that works in harmony. Lovely length, a food that satisfies.
