A's Review: * * * *
This reminded me of fishsticks like my mom used to make back in the day before my brother and I were allowed to use the oven ourselves. It uses the same breading as the other Starfish offerings. A bit chewy but still very good.

Z's Review: * * * *
This gluten-free crispy battered haddock tasted a little more "fishy" than the halibut, but not necessarily in a bad way. The texture of the fish was also a little harder and less flaky than the halibut. However, the batter was still delicious and crispy right out of the oven. It was also nut free, soy free, milk free, and egg free. I also thought, for some reason, that the haddock browned a little bit better than the halibut, though I don't know why. I think the haddock make a nice, less expensive version of the fish and chips if you don't want to go for the halibut.

This fish was tougher (i.e. less easy to cut with a fork) than the halibut. But it had the same nice, light breading. Not bad at all for a cheaper option than the halibut.

This was crispy but had more of a fish stick flavor. Still better than plain "store bought" fish sticks, though.

  1. I agree with your assessments! I liked the halibut better, too. I thought the breading was very good but the fish itself was drier and less moist and flaky than the halibut.
