Gorton's Grilled Seafood Review

I recently got some free coupons to get some Gorton's Grilled Seafood along with the oven mitts you see below and a spatula with some recipe cards to help me with some ideas on how to make some grilled dishes.

Here is what I chose to get with my coupons:
*Grilled Tilapia
*Grilled Haddock
*Grilled Salmon
*Grilled Shrimp (Garlic)
*Grilled Shrimp (Classic)
We have been eating Gorton's Seafood for quite awhile now and I know that you have seen me blog about them quite a lot in the past. You just really can't beat them in the taste department when it comes to making seafood at home. They make it easy to fix and your family will love the taste! 
Gorton's has a vast array of seafood products to choose from for every kind of taste, so if you prefer fried fish fillets, then you can have that or if shrimp is your favorite, they have several kinds to choose from. To see all that they have, check out their products to see what might peak your interest.
You can also download a coupon to use at the grocery store so that you can save a little bit of money.
One recipe that we really loved was Simply Baked Tilapia with Roasted Vegetables:
1 packages Gorton’s Simply Bake Tilapia
1.5 cups Root vegetables, like potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions and carrots
2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp Welch’s 100% Grape Juice
Salt & Pepper
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare Gorton’s Simply Bake Tilapia Signature Seasoning according to package instructions.
  • Roughly chop root vegetables to desired size, about 1” cubes.
  • Toss with Welch’s 100% Grape Juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Place in baking dish and cook for 20-25 minutes or until fork-tender.
  • Serve roasted vegetables alongside Gorton’s Simply Bake Tilapia Signature Seasoning.

  • It was pretty darn awesome and you will find plenty more recipes on their website.

    About Gorton's:
    A look at the map of the United States will reveal a small dot about three-fourths of the way up the Atlantic coastline. That little spot locates the city of Gloucester, Massachusetts at 42 degrees, 35 minutes North Latitude and 70 degrees, 40 minutes West Longitude. Gloucester is America’s oldest seaport, the birthplace of the U.S. fishing industry and the homeport of Gorton’s Seafood. 
    Gorton’s was founded in 1849 by a father-son duo under the name John Pew & Sons. Several years later in nearby Rockport, MA, Slade Gorton founded a fishing business and was the first to pack salt-dried codfish. Gorton’s became a registered trademark in 1875. In 1906, Slade Gorton, John Pew and two other Gloucester fisheries merged into Gorton-Pew Fisheries. When the merger became effective, the company offices were located in the same building where Gorton’s Main Office is located today. 
    At the turn of the 20th century, Gorton’s Codfish Cakes were a New England staple. A leader in innovation, Gorton’s was the first to develop a frozen convenience food – Gorton’s Fried and Frozen Codfish Fillets. Since then, Gorton’s has introduced countless seafood innovations, like “Fresh Lock” processing in the late 1950s and now-famous Gorton’s Fish Sticks in 1952. More recently, Gorton’s Grilled Fillets and Skillet Crisp items have introduced delicious and innovative ways to enjoy seafood. 
    In 1975, the Gorton’s Fisherman appeared on TV for the first time. “Trust the Gorton’s Fisherman” has since become a famous jingle beloved by Americans. 
    Much has changed at Gorton’s since 1849, but a few things will always remain the same. Gorton’s is a company proud of its Gloucester history, the Gorton’s Fisherman, and the dedicated people that work every day to help people everywhere enjoy the goodness of great seafood.
