Gorton’s Seafood Giveaway

As a Mom I’m always looking for healthy foods to improve my family’s diet.  One of the best additions to making a healthy diet is fish. The USDA’s new Dietary Guidelines for Americans includes increasing consumption of seafood to at least two servings a week (8 ounces of cooked seafood total). Seafood is one of the best natural sources for Omega-3 fatty acid. Studies show that a diet rich in Omega-3s may:

  • enhance brain growth and development
  • lessen symptoms of depression and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • promote heart health
  • decrease blood pressure
  • help relieve arthritis and joint pain
  • support eye health
  • decrease risk for certain cancers
  • reduce symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease

Helping kids get these healthy nutrients and fats is essential for proper brain development and growth is great. My problem is getting my kids to actually eat fish. That’s why I’m loving Gorton’s Seafood. They have a variety of frozen seafood found in your local grocery store and their website is a great resource for recipes and tips on how to incorporate fish into your family’s menus.

I’ve learned a few tricks to help my kids enjoy eating their seafood. One trick is to get creative with dips and sauces. I’ve also learned to introduce seafood early and be patient if kids don’t eat it the first time. My youngest is the pickiest eater. She doesn’t even eat marshmallows! Over time I’ve presented her with fish and let her watch her older siblings and parents eat seafood. This example, the addition of fun dips, and patience have yielded success with my picky eater! Thanks, Gorton!

One recipe I tried with Gorton’s grilled shrimp was Avocado and Mango Lime Grilled Shrimp tacos. The recipe is easy and the taste delicious!

Avocado and Mango Lime Grilled Shrimp Tacos

1 (8 oz) package Gorton’s Classic Grilled Shrimp

½ tsp finely grated lime zest

1 medium mango, medium diced

1 avocado, medium diced

½ cup corn

2 scallions, sliced

¼ cup crumbled queso fresco cheese

2 Tbsp diced jalapeno peppers

2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

¼ cup reduced fat sour cream

¼ cup salsa verde

4 whole wheat 8 inch tortillas, warmed

1. Prepare Gorton’s Classic Grilled Shrimp according to package instructions; cool slightly and carefully remove tails.

2. In a large bowl, stir together shrimp and lime zest until well coated. Stir in mango, avocado, corn, scallion, queso fresco, jalapeno and cilantro.

3. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream and salsa verde.

4. Fill tortillas evenly with shrimp mixture; drizzle with sour cream mixture and serve.

(You can substitute fat free feta or your favorite shredded cheese instead of queso fresco. You can also use corn tortillas or hard taco shells.)

I'm a stay-at-home mom living in a Hawaiian paradise with my husband and our three darling daughters. When I'm not playing in the surf I'm cooking in the kitchen (my foodie blog: dishlist.blogspot.com), reading, playing sports with my family, or trying my hand at crafting. Here at Moana Saves I look forward to sharing with you my reviews and recommendations of products that will hopefully bring the same ease and enjoyment to your home as it does to mine.
