Grilled Salmon Piccata Recipe from Gorton's Seafood #RealFabulous (Review and Giveaway)

Disclosure: I was sent FREE product coupons, along with a Gorton's spatula and pair of oven mitts, to assist me in writing up an hones review of the product line, thanks to the folks at Gorton's.  However, all views shared are mine and mine alone.


One of my New Year's resolutions was to eat more seafood, as it offers so many great health benefits, that I feel my diet has been lacking. While I don't want to skimp on flavor, I also don't want to break the bank when it comes to buying fresh seafood.  I learned the lesson never to send my husband to the fish market, as he pays no attention to pricing.  Last year for a summer lobsterbake, he ended up buying $40 lobsters.  Ouch!  While they tasted amazing, I know the quality and taste would have still been the same for smaller lobsters.  

When it comes to seafood, I love lobster, while my husband is a fan of salmon and tilapia.  Because we can't afford lobster for every seafood craving or meal, or have time to visit a fish market, I rely on Gorton's frozen seafood to create amazing seafood dishes. From scampi's to pasta dishes, and even salads, I am always amazed when I browse the recipes section at Gorton's to see what recipes you can make at home with their assorted frozen seafood products.  Click here to visit their recipe section now -- just don't browse the list on an empty stomach, as the photos will make your mouth water and your belly begurgle -

I was recently sent 5 FREE product coupons to sample some of the new Gorton's grilled products, as well as pick of some of my family's Gorton's favorites, along with a branded spatula and pair of oven mitts. I was asked to try out a recipe from the many found at Gorton's or create my own.  After browsing the Gorton's recipes, I just had to try their Grilled Salmon Piccata.  My husband, who is a fan of salmon, turned me on to this fish, and this one of my favorite seafood to cook with, as it is so versatile, and tastes great with whatever you pair it with -- salad, pasta and even a side of steamed vegetables.
