Gorton's Seafood Product Review and Giveaway

When I was in school, I loved learning about Catholics who made positive impacts in art, history, and the science.  Similarly, I love when I see the impact of Catholicism on our current secular society.  Every year during Lent, restaurants offer seafood specials and grocery stores run sales on fish.  We as Catholic have the power to dictate menus!  Since I love seafood, this works out even more to my advantage.  I try to get my fill of seafood during this time, yet I’m still sad to see the fish sales go.  In order to ease the pain of full priced fish now that Lent is over, I’ve received coupons from Gorton’s seafood to give away.  Three lucky people will win two coupons each for free Gorton’s products.

When I think of Gorton’s Seafood products I think of fish sticks.  David would be perfectly happy with fish sticks (in fact, when Lucia and I went to visit my best friend in Atlanta last month, David bought a big package of fish sticks to last him the weekend).  I, however, wanted to test out some of Gorton’s other seafood products.  Last week, I went to Gorton’s website to check out their recipes to figure out what to make for dinner.  When I came across their fish taco recipe, I knew that’s what I had to make.  David and I have made fish tacos a few times since we got married, but we hadn’t tried it with breaded fish.  Fish tacos are also very appealing because they can be made fairly quickly and need a relatively small number of ingredients, many of which we usually have on hand.  We made ours with Gorton’s breaded tilapia, small corn and flour tortillas (corn for me, flour for David), salsa, cheese, black beans, lettuce, and onions - oh, and lime, of course.
 
The fish tacos were amazing!  We’ve always made our fish tacos with tilapia - white fish is ideal for fish tacos - but having the fish breaded made an incredible difference.  David said they were the best fish tacos we’ve had.  So good that we had them for dinner two nights in a row (one package of the fish was enough for two dinners for the two of us).  David rarely complains about what we eat for dinner, but I know that he really enjoyed it when he asks for the same meal the very next day!  We look forward to trying more Gorton’s Seafood products in the future, particularly the grilled shrimp and salmon fillets. 

Want to try Gorton’s products? Here’s your chance to win two coupons for FREE Gorton’s eafood products.  Enter on the Rafflecopter entry form below.  There will be three winners.  The more entries you do, the more chances you have to win.  The giveaway ends at midnight on Friday, April 20.  The winners will be contacted by email and will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.  Only open to US residents.

And even if you don't win, here is a coupon for $0.50 off ONE Gorton's Skillet Crisp Tilapia item.
