Giveaway: Gorton’s Seafood Prize Pack (Ends 4/5)

gortons9Lent is officially over, which means a lot of people will stop eating fish on Fridays and go back to eating whatever is quickest to cook.

Gorton’s makes fish so easy that you can really enjoy it year round. Plus, Gorton’s now has 20 selections under 200 calories or less, so you’ll be able to find something for everyone.

Now, I’m going to be honest: I’ve never eaten a full fish meal before (except tuna fish). I grew up having a bite here and there of my dad’s fish on Fridays, and I ordered crab cakes once. That’s about it.

gortons1

We went to Harris Teeter to see our choices. I was surprised at how many there were to choose from. There were fish sticks (which I know a lot of people associate with Gorton’s), shrimp poppers, salmon, tilapia, and more.

It was hard for us to decide what to get.

I told Pete I wanted to start off with something with a milder taste. I wasn’t sure that I would like something that was incredibly fishy.

We picked up the salmon, but ultimately, it was the tilapia that we tried first.

gortons3

We figured a fish sandwich would be a good introduction for me. Plus, we brought home some amazing bread from New York.

We didn’t have mayo, which actually worked out because Pete has been thinking about homemade mayo for a long time. I didn’t take pictures of him making it, but it involves oil (he used canola but you can use olive), egg yolks, and lemon juice, plus whatever spices you like.

He used a hand whisk to combine all the ingredients, but I’d really suggest a hand mixer instead of mixing by hand. It would have come out a little less¬†gelatinous.

Now, onto the sandwiches. 

gortons5

Preheat the oven and place the fish on a baking tray.

gortons4

Follow the instructions on the package, flipping when necessary. Pete did this using a Gorton’s branded spatula while wearing a Gorton’s branded apron and pot holder (more on that later).

gortons6

Spread the mayo on the bread.

gortons7

Top with the fish.

gortons8

Top with an egg. Okay, this part is optional … but since we made the mayo using just the yolk, we didn’t want to toss the white. So Pete cooked it and topped the sandwich with it.

For my first fish sandwich, it was great. The tilapia was breaded, but it wasn’t too much breading. And it didn’t taste fishy at all. The first inside was really flaky and it was easy to cook. We baked it and didn’t have any problems with it coming out overbaked or overcrunchy.

I’m really excited to try the other varieties of Gorton’s now.

You too? Well, guess what. One lucky winner will win a Gorton’s prize pack, filled with five free product coupons, plus a Gorton’s apron, spatula, and two pot holders. To enter, just use the Rafflecopter below.
