Do you want the chance to win a FREE Gorton's Frozen Seafood Product? Our family loved their products, and yours will too.
Gorton's Seafood has been gracing American tables since 1849. Their grilled salmon, tilapia, haddock, and fish fillets are Gluten Free. Did you know that seafood is really good for you and you should eat 2-3 servings of seafood each week? It is a Super Food, due to it being rich in omega 3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, and vitamins A, B, and D; it is great way to reduce heart disease. I was pleased to learn about their concerns for sustainability, and green efforts to supply future generations with healthy seafood options, through the Trusted Catch Program. 
I knew when I headed to the store that I would be heading to the frozen seafood section, what I wasn't prepared for was the number of seafood items to choose from! I was so excited to see the Gorton's options, from Alaskan Pollack, tilapia, haddock, shrimp, and salmon. Gorton's has come so far, since the days of my youth and their awesome breaded fish sticks! 
 I chose the Skillet Crisp Garlic & Herb Tilapia and the Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets. From the oven to the plate, was less than 30 minutes! For this busy Mom, it was so quick and easy to put a healthy meal on the table for my family, in no time at all. The kids loved the Breaded Fish Fillets, and asked for seconds. My husband and I enjoyed the Garlic & Herb Tilapia, as the fish was light and flaky, and the seasoning was superb. All of our plates were clear, so zero leftovers, which is a huge deal in our household!

The Gorton's website has an awesome way to look up recipes using their products, found at the Gorton's Galley.  The next time you are meal planning or wondering what you should fix for dinner, you are just a few clicks away from a healthy and quick family meal.
You will find printable coupons on the Gorton's website! Gorton's is also giving away prizes each week with their Gorton's Fisherman's Friday Sweepstakes until May 8, 2012.
