 Personal: Joes Crab Shack Dinner Failure
Posted on 2012-02-27 @ 18:41:58 by r00t

My wife and I purchased a bag of Joe's Crab Shack "Eat At Home" Cod with Cajun Lemon Butter Sauce, and we decided to try it out tonight for dinner. Seeing the bags of cod split open and spew their contents all over the inside of our microwave like an incontinent dog was only the beginning of our dinner adventure...

The first thing about this meal that caught our eye was the fact that there was no conventional cooking instructions on the bag; it was microwave only. I quipped "Well, at least it won't take long for us to eat!" as we embarked on our journey (my wife, incidentally, made the comment that she'd "...be pissed if this was the size of the fish at the restaurant!". Heh - I love my wife!

We followed the directions to the letter:

I didn't get a picture of the bags urinating cod juice all over the inside of the microwave in the first two minutes, but this is what it looked like at the end:

We put the sauce in hot water as directed, and nuked the fish first for 2 minutes. We then threw in the other bags, and nuked them for 8 more minutes.

Once done, we pulled out the fish (or at least that's what it was supposed to be):

The sauce was gloppy, and the "fish" was still frozen! Ugh! At least the orzo and the vegetables looked good:

Nope! Frozen too! Double ugh! Let's look at the microwave again!

All my wife and I wanted was a quick dinner and some relaxation. Normally these "meal in a bag" items work out well for us, but we thought we'd try JCS's offerings for a change. Four thumbs down on this dreck; JCS will be getting a nasty note right after this is posted.

I guess it's PIZZA NITE again! Ah, well...
