Product Review

Gorton's Skillet Crisp
Through my latest Bzz Campaign (a program where I am able to try free products so that I can bzz or talk about them), I received a coupon to try Gorton's new Skillet Crisp.  Skillet Crisps are a new frozen fish meal from Gorton's.  They are battered fish fillets that are lightly coated with herbs and spices.  These fillets are made from tilapia and go right from your freezer to your skillet.  They do not contain MSG or artificial flavors or colors and they are flash frozen for freshness.  Each box contains about 4 servings (mine had 5 fillets) and currently they come in two flavors:  Classic Seasonings and Garlic & Herb.

My family tried the Classic Seasonings that had a touch of lemon in it.  I basically took the fish from the freezer and put it in my non-stick skillet.  Without even having to use any type of oil or butter, I cooked them between low and medium heat, turning once.  Total time to cook can be between 18 and 25 minutes.  Directions are also given on the box to bake them in a conventional oven.

My family really liked the flavor of the tilapia.  You definitely could taste the lemon which gave it a little bit of a sweet taste, but the blend of the spices was also nice. They were also true to their word when they said they were lightly coated.  I still think it is always healthier to use fresh whenever possible, but for a good-tasting, quick fish meal, I would recommend these new Gorton Skillet Crisps.  They are a little expensive.  At my grocery store they were $7.49 but if you watch for a sale (which they were at my store so they cost $5.99) and look for a coupon (you can find one here:  http://gortons.com/coupons_promotions.htm) then they would be a little more reasonably priced.
