I was tickled to be contacted by Gorton’s for a seafood review! I WAS given FREE product to test, but all opinions are our own.
We thought we would try Fish Tacos — much to my husband’s chagrin. He had them once, when we were out to eat and he did NOT like them. Here is the thing: they used beer battered fish, lime juice and thickly cut cabbage. Then, they dumped hot sauce all over it, to make it more like a “he-man” contest. Not only does making it yourself mean that you can save a lot of money, but you can customize it to your tastes! Gorton’s makes this super easy — and they have a LOT of recipes that you can check out for inspiration (HERE). You can also visit gortons.com and download a coupon!! (we LOVE coupons – right?)
I kept it simple, with the flavors that naturally go with fish: Lemon, cheddar and slaw, using their Lemon Pepper Grilled Fish Fillets:
Baked Fish Tacos
- 1 Box Gorton’s Grilled Fillets
- 2 cup creamy coleslaw (you can make your own or buy at the deli)
- 1/2 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
- 1 can Black Beans
- taco shells
Bake the fish, per the package instructions. Cut it into 1/2 inch strips. Spoon the coleslaw into the bottom of your taco shells, add two strips of fish, a squeeze of lemon, and top with some shredded cheese. Plate with some black beans (topped with a bit more cheese).
FYI: He liked this so much that he had Seconds!
Now, for the REALLY good part: I get to give one lucky U.S. reader (3) $2 off product coupons, 1 Gorton’s-branded ship wheel keychain, an assortment of Gorton’s recipe cards and beautiful seaside/Gorton’s postcards.
