Fremont Fish Market Dill Pickle Style Fish Sandwich Portion

Aldi is a hidden gem when it comes to finding seafood options, especially during the season of Lent. This time of year, the grocer’s freezer aisle is stocked with all kinds of fish, from breaded or plain fillets to lobster bites to crab cakes. There’s also crab legs and various shrimp selections. It’s a great time to stock your deep freezer.

While browsing the Aldi Find freezer aisle this week, I came across something that caught my eye: dill pickle-flavored breaded fish sandwich portions. I love the opportunity to try novel or weird food combos from Aldi. The grocer sold some dill pickle schnupfnudeln a while back, so I figured I’d try these dill pickle fish portions as well.

Fremont Fish Market Dill Pickle Style Fish Sandwich Portion is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back next year. Aldi does not offer online ordering for this if it’s sold out at your local store.

This cost $4.99 for a 14-ounce package at the time of publication. With four servings per package, that comes out to about $1.25 per serving. It was sold in a mixed case alongside original flavored fish sandwich portions.

This features 100% whole fillets from Alaskan pollock. The box bears the Marine Stewardship Council’s seal for certified sustainable seafood. This product was made in the U.S. using U.S. and imported ingredients. The Alaska pollock in this product was wild caught in FAO Area 67 using line and net catch methods.

The package also notes that the manufacturer strives to produce a fully “boneless” product. However, as with all fish, occasional bones may still be present.

This has a lengthy ingredients list and contains a few processed ingredients, including natural and artificial flavors, xanthan gum, and dextrose.

One box contains four 99-gram servings. One serving has 220 calories, 9 grams of total fat (12% DV), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% DV), 380 mg of sodium (17% DV), 22 grams of total carbohydrates (8% DV), 1 gram of dietary fiber (4% DV), 1 gram of total sugars, 1 gram of added sugars (2% DV), and 12 grams of protein.

To bake in the oven, preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Place frozen product on an oiled baking sheet. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until crisp, flipping fish halfway through bake time for best results.

To air fry, heat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Cook 1-4 pieces for 10-11 minutes, flipping portions halfway through cooking.

Ready to serve.

I cooked this fish in my air fryer. It came out hot and crispy after about 10 minutes. I served it on a brioche bun with a bit of tartar sauce, and my local Aldi stores have been selling heirloom tomatoes lately, so I topped my fish sandwich with a tomato slice.

This has dill pickle flavor, but it’s mild, with no more pickle flavor than you’d get if you topped it with real pickle slices. At times I thought it had a hint of mild spiciness, and it turns out hot sauce is listed among the ingredients. I wouldn’t necessarily call this spicy, though. I like this fish, and I don’t regret buying it at all. If you like fish sandwiches and pickles, this might be just your thing.

The Verdict:

Fremont Fish Market Dill Pickle Style Fish Sandwich Portion features breaded Alaska pollock fillets with a zesty dill pickle seasoning. This gets kudos from us for daring to be unusual, and we like how it tastes, too. The pickle flavor is spot on but not too strong. If you’re tired of the usual fish sandwiches, give this a try.
