Gorton's Makes Family Dinner Night Delicious!

Have you all heard the news? Gorton's has a brand new line of Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets. They've reinvented their iconic Fish Stick, to create the Fish Stick 2.0. The new Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets are made from 100% Alaska Pollock and are never fried, so they have 50% less fat than Gorton’s regular breaded Fish Sticks and Fillets. And, thanks to a seasoned panko crumb, they have the same great taste and crunch you and your family have come to love from Gorton's. All new Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks offer a mealtime solution that you can feel great about serving and your family will truly enjoy.

Gorton's is spreading the news with their all new Smart & Crunchy Tour across America. Check out the #GortonsTour stops on their website, smartandcrunchy.com and while you are there, check out their delicious recipes too!

Recently we were sent a Gorton's Pack so that we could do a review for all of you. We received some free product coupons, an adult apron, a child's apron and an adorable plush fish stick toy which my little grand daughter quickly snagged up!

We headed to the grocery store and picked up a box of the Gorton's Crunchy Butterfly Shrimp and a large bag of the Gorton's Battered Fish Fillets. Our local grocery store didn't have the new Smart & Crunchy products in yet...so this is why I selected these particular two products to review for all of you.

One of the things I love about the Gorton's Fish & Seafood products is the simple fact that you can make them straight out of the box, no additional ingredients are needed and in less than 30 minutes lunch or dinner is on the table. If you like to get creative, you can use their products in a wide variety of recipes and you can grab those recipes directly from the Gorton's web site.

Since the princess is taking swimming lessons after school during the week we need to have quick & easy dinners during the week. I decided to make the Crunchy Butterfly Shrimp and the Battered Fish Fillets for dinner the other night and they were a big hit! I served some Harvard beets, french fries and fresh garden salads right along with the fish & seafood products and it was a dinner that my entire family enjoyed!

We simply opened up the packages and placed the shrimps and fish fillets in a glass baking dish and baked them in our oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or less. (baking time depends on the product). They came out of the oven perfectly browned and were crunchy. There was nothing soggy about them at all and they had a very nice flavor and texture.

Next week we are going to try out the Gorton's Fish Tacos recipe that you can find on their web site. They look totally delicious!!! Plus, visit the Gorton's site for some printable money-saving coupons that you can take to your local store!

Sweepstakes: Enter the Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Sweepstakes for a chance to win 1 in 4 ultimate family vacations! See their website for additional information and to enter the Sweepstakes.

Giveaway: One lucky winner is going to win two full-value product coupons, an adult-size apron, a child-size apron and a Smarty Crunchman plush toy. (note: photo shows multiple coupons but you will ONLY receive (2) in your prize package. Thank you Gorton's!
