As part of Iceland's #PowerOfFrozen campaign they challenged me to go into store, have a look around and create a recipe. I was impressed by the range of products on offer and even more impressed with the prices. It makes sense really. Freezing products means less waste and therefore savings are made and passed onto the customer. I stocked up on frozen fruit, vegetables, rolls, and prawns.
However, it was the wagyu burgers that caught my eye. I had absolutely no idea what a wagyu burger was. As part of Iceland's specialty meats range (Keize), the wagyu burgers are made from 100% grass fed New Zealand wagyu beef. The burgers are packed full of flavour and succulent.
Iceland wagyu burgers
Iceland burger buns
Iceland onion rings
Emmenthal cheese slices
Little gem lettuce
For the spicy coleslaw:
1/4 Red cabbage sliced
1/2 red onion sliced
1 apple chopped
1 carrot thinly sliced
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2tsp chopped red chilli (you can get this frozen in Iceland.)
1tsp wholegrain mustard
The best thing about frozen ingredients is that most of the hard work is done for you. One thing to note is that the wagyu burgers cook best if they are defrosted so remember to get them out of the freezer. As I started frying the burgers, I prepared the rest of the meal.
I put the onion rings in the oven. These take about 15 minutes to cook and it is great as they are full of flavour.
I then chopped all the ingredients for the spicy coleslaw, mixed it together and put it in the fridge.
Next I lightly toasted the burger buns, before assembling the burger.
Really simple and really delisiocus.
So far I have been really impressed with the freshness, quality and range of products from Iceland. You can even get raspberries dipped in chocolate. What a treat! Have you been to Iceland recently? What products of theirs do you recommend?
