Weight Watchers from Heinz Salmon Mornay

Salmon Mornay is another Weight Watchers from Heinz ready meal. It's part of their Signature Range and is described as:

'Salmon pieces with broccoli in a white savoury sauce topped with breadcrumbs.'

This is a frozen ready meal for one with 232 calories and 6 ProPoints.

Whenever I buy ready meals, it’s often with the intention of sharing them between two people and adding lots of veggies. This helps reduce the calories even more plus it makes it more filling and helps to meet the recommended daily quota of veg.

However, this meal on its own is so low in calories I was tempted to eat it all myself. Although I forgot to take a photo after cooking, the inside does look remarkably like the photo on the box. There are lots of chunky pieces of tender pink salmon and broccoli as well. This is despite the fact that the ingredients list shows just 12% salmon and 12% broccoli content. Perhaps I got lucky as there certainly seemed to be more.

Salmon Mornay Frozen
The sauce is rather bland unfortunately, but it is very light as opposed to rich tasting. The crumbed part was mildly flavoured with Cheddar cheese and there was just enough so as not to make the meal seem stodgy.

Salmon Mornay can be found in the freezer section of supermarkets including ASDA, Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury’s.

The fat and saturated fat content have an amber traffic light. However the fat content per 100g is 3g, so just bordering on the low of 3g. The saturated fat is just over the low value of <1g with 1.1g per 100g.
