Do you have one night a week reserved for seafood on your dinner menu? I usually try to cook up a fish dish every Saturday night, especially during the summer and fall months when we have the local farmer's market happening. There are usually a handful of local fishermen who bring their daily catches and sell. I don't know about you, but fresh seafood is so delicious.
But, there are times when we can't make it to the farmer's market, they don't have anything we want to cook up, or I am just too busy to stick to my Saturday Fish Fry night. When any of the above happen, my quick and easy alternative is to reach into the freezer and pull out a box of Gorton's frozen seafood. From fish stick for the girls, to grilled tilapia and haddock. Gorton's have been our go to for delicious tasting seafood. While it is frozen, it tastes just as good, or sometimes better than the fresh seafood we pick up at the farmer's market or order in a restaurant.
In addition to offering a wide assortment of products, Gorton's also has an extensive recipe collection on their website, that will give you inspiration to turn one of their boxed frozen seafood products into an amazing entree , that will surely have your family wondering if it is fresh or frozen. More times than not, they will think you slaved over the stove to infuse so much flavor into the fish fillets. :-)
Recently, I was sent a fun review pack from Gorton's, which included free product coupons to try out new or even pick up some of my family's favorite Gorton's products. I ended up picking up two boxes of the Gorton’s Skillet Crisp Tilapia with Classic seasonings, which my husband and I love. While I knew my husband would know it was Gorton's based on flavor and look, I wanted to try out one of the recipes I found on the Gorton's website to create a new, unique dish, simply by using the Gorton’s Skillet Crisp Tilapia with Classic seasonings I had in the freezer.
Below is the recipe for Skillet Crisp Tilapia with Citrus Salsa, along with a photo taken from the Gorton's website. Preparation of the dish was easy. And, the end result was "Wow!" I couldn't believe how much flavor this recipe made the skillet crisp tilapia fillets. I am not sure I can go back to just cooking up the tilapia fillets like I used to.
Spice up Skillet Crisp Tilapia for dinner with a delicious salsa of tomatoes, oranges and onions. Bold spices make for a whole new experience your family will love.
