What People Are Saying

5 Stars
These make excellent appetizers, better than the restaurant appetizers I've had lately. Also, that dipping sauce is da bomb. Next time I think I will get two orders.

Very good crust. Not much seafood in the filling.

Very good!

Overly salty, about a tablespoon of filling in each, only tasted onion. Didn't see any actual seafood.

When I first opened the box I was not impressed. This crust never got crisp when I heated it in the oven but the filling was outstanding! I would order this again.

So delicious! A perfect lunch!

Good! I made the mistake of reheating in microwave. I should have turned on the oven to regain crisp texture of pastry. Flavor very good. Sauce very good.

Not bad. Can taste the seafood and plenty of potatoes. Tiny bit of spice. There was a strong fish smell.
