Gorton’s Seafood “Fisherman’s Friday” Sweepstakes

PhotobucketI am all for an EASY dinner…but on the OTHER hand I like to have a lot of fresh ingredients in my dinner.  So when having the chance to try Gorton’s Seafood, I was excited to see what new things they had to offer.  I remember eating their fish sticks many times growing up, but I wondered what other products they sold.  AND I FOUND they have so much MORE than just fish sticks.

Through May 8, Gorton’s is giving away more than 100 weekly prizes on “Fisherman’s Friday.” They’ve also got a truly spectacular grand prize to give away. In total, prizes are worth nearly $10,000! So many surprises….so much fun!

Here are just some categories of Seafood that they offer:

Breaded Fillets, Battered Fillets, All Natural Grilled Fillets, Salmon Grilled Fillets, Fish Tenders, Five Star Tilapia, Grilled Shrimp, and Shrimp

I of course chose the Shrimp…I’m just a shrimp girl myself. I looked for the Salmon, but my “country grocery store” didn’t carry the variety I wish they did. I would KILL for Salmon.

Here are some Recipes I was excited for:

Grilled Shrimp Fish Tacos
Photobucket*It seems like a lot of ingredients…and some I did without, but the seasonings I kept the same. I like using my fresh veggies and combining with a easy prep meat. The taste was sensational. I LOVE shrimp for the ability to pack a LOT of flavor but NOT have the regretful OVERSTUFFED feeling after eating it. THIS meal was light to the tummy but FULL of FLAVOR!*

INGREDIENTS:
1 package (8 oz) Gorton’s Classic Grilled Shrimp
1/2 tsp finely grated lime zest
1 medium mango, medium diced
1 avocado, medium diced
1/2 cup corn
2 scallions, sliced
1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese
2 Tbsp diced jalapeno peppers
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/4 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.

*THIS one I was hesitant for because being PREGNANT I tend to get heartburn and acid reflux easy…but the taste was SO yummy, and without the heartburn!

The popcorn shrimp alone were OK to taste, but with the dressing I ate almost the WHOLE bag!*

Ingredients:
14 oz Gorton’s Crunchy Golden Popcorn Shrimp
2 1/2 Tbsp spicy Thai chili sauce
2 1/2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Photobucket

1. Prepare Gorton’s Crunchy Golden Popcorn Shrimp according to package instructions.

2. In the meantime, blend chili sauce, mayonnaise and vinegar with a whisk.

3. In a large bowl, pour sauce over cooked shrimp and gently coat, serve immediately.

**I was PLEASED with the products I tried and excited to try their other varieties of seafood. I love that it is an easy GO-TO meal! And their prices were fair, even at our local country store.

I was not paid for this review, any and all opinions are mine!**
