Review and giveaway (closed): Gorton's Seafood



Congrats to my winners: Mami2jcn; MomLovesDeals; Jessica; Heather Ransom; Stephanie
As a general rule, I try to make meals for my family from scratch, using fresh ingredients. But that's not always possible, since life gets awfully busy sometimes!  So I'm always looking for good frozen food to have on hand, things that my kids and my husband and I will enjoy eating, and things that are quick and easy to prepare.

Recently I had the opportunity, thanks to my involvement at the Product Review Place, to test out a great frozen food, Gorton's Seafood. I was sent several coupons for Gorton's Seafood, so I took these to the stores and browsed my options.  I was impressed to see how many varieties of the frozen grilled seafood Gorton's carried, lots of different fish options (shrimp, tilapia, salmon, all natural fillets) with different toppings (lemon pepper, lemon butter, Italian herb, Cajun blackened), all 80-130 calories per serving, and all with 0 grams trans fats.



Last night Daniel and I had the All Natural Lemon Pepper Grilled Fillet for dinner.  I ended up baking it, since I had the oven on anyway, but it can also be microwaved for faster cooking.  For the kids, I picked up the Potato Crunch Fillets. These are whole fish fillets covered in potato breading that makes the fish taste like it's covered in potato chips! Yummy! We were impressed by both of these Gorton's products and thought they were delicious, and we look forward to trying out all the other options. In addition to the ones I've mentioned here so far, Gorton's also has a number of other frozen items like Classic Crunch Golden Fillets, Garlic and Herb Fillets, Crunchy Breaded Tilapia Fillets and Lemon Herb Breaded Fillets. There are also a bunch of options in the battered fillet category, like beer batter fillets and of course you can get the classic breaded fish sticks, if that's what your family is hungry for.

I've got good news for you guys! 5 of you will each win 2 coupons for a free Gorton's product! (US mailing addresses only, please).
