To be quite frank, life lately has been a bit hectic. Between running my own business, teaching ten yoga classes a week, and being the stage mom to my silly little fur babies who are breaking into Hollywood (not kidding- watch my social media this week!!) I feel like coming home and cooking a full dinner is not a priority. So when LoveTheWild, a company that prides itself on its sustainably sourced fish with tasty sauces, reached out and asked me if they could help me out with dinner I jumped at the chance!
Now, I rarely do posts with just a full-on product review but this needed an exception. I have literally loved everything that this brand has to offer- from how tasty their food is to their harvesting practices, they are a company that I truly am excited to support. Plus, they are based in Boulder to boot- can’t get better than a local company! I was sent three vouchers for LoveTheWild frozen fish boxes and picked up their Rainbow Trout with Salsa Verde (the Rainbow Trout is only available at Whole Foods- but you can pick up a very similar Red Trout at other retailers as well!), Striped Bass with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Barramundi with Mango Sriracha Chutney. They were all super fresh and tasty, but my favorite was the Striped Bass- even though my tired, dingbat self didn’t think to pop the fish skin-side down!
Each LoveTheWild frozen fish entree that you can pick up at your local grocery store is incredibly simple to prepare. All you have to do is preheat your oven and follow the easy instructions on the box. It is as simple as placing fish on the provided (heart shaped!) parchment paper, topping it with sauce, and cooking it for between 20-30 minutes- you can even pop your favorite veggies into the parchment paper- no extra dishes required! I added some summer squash, sliced baby potatoes, and red onion to the fish for a nice, well rounded meal. It really is that easy, you don’t even have to thaw the fish! Instead of taking what at the end of a long day feels like forever to prep your dinner, you can take two minutes and then allow yourself an extra bit of wind-down ‘me’ time. I recommend the couch and a glass of kombucha while you wait!
Taste aside, LoveTheWild products also have some amazing features. Oftentimes you see ‘sustainable seafood’ and don’t know exactly what that means. On the back of each box of fish you can trace the source, location and owner included! Plus, you can pop over to the ‘Aquaculture’ page on LoveTheWild’s website and they will explain (with pictures!) what all of the different information means. You pair that with their guarantee of the fish being free of hormones, antibiotics, and dyes, and you have a fish product that you can trust.
I adore the fact that LoveTheWild products are so simple that they allow me a little extra ‘me time’ at dinner- something I desperately need more of! I’d love to know what you would do if you had a bit of extra time instead of dinner prep. Would you have a glass of wine? Follow me on Instagram ::cough cough::? Or maybe spend a few extra minutes bonding with your littles? (furry or otherwise!) let me know in the comments below!
