Fishy business

I don’t know about the rest of ya’ll, but I am CONSTANTLY on the lookout for quick, easy and different meals to make for the fam. I get tired of the same old same old stuff day in and day out. A couple weeks ago I got asked to join a Buzz Campaign for Gorton's Skillet Crisp Tilapia. I said sure…bring it on. We love fish, but it’s not something I go out of my way to make on a daily basis. When I do make it, it’s usually on the grill.

Here’s the low down from Gorton’s:

Every Skillet Crisp fillet is made with Gorton's 5-Star Tilapia® — only the mildest, flakiest whole fillets are selected and then seasoned with a crisp coating of real herbs and spices in two flavorful varieties: Garlic & Herb Seasonings and Classic Seasonings with a Touch of Lemon. Because the whole, natural fillets are lightly coated, Gorton's Skillet Crisp Tilapia gives you more fish in every bite!

Now on to the all-important taste test:

I do have to tell you I was pleasantly surprised. When I think frozen fish I think miscellaneous pieces of fish mushed to together to make some non-natural shape. Not too appealing to say the least. When I opened the package…it actually looked like a piece of lightly breaded fish. Ding, ding ding…bonus number one.

The cooking time was minimal and EASY! By the time I had everything else ready…so was the fish. No on to the taste… We are somewhat fish connoisseurs around here (I may not cook it much….but we do eat it out a lot). I was a little skeptical.

I served ours with asparagus, homemade seasoned french fries and cheddar rolls….yummy. The flavor and texture was waaaayyyy better than normal frozen, but not quite as good as fresh. I would have to say I could see us eating this again. Good job Gorton’s.

Pin It!


  1. Looks like a winner! No one eats fish in my house but me lol Will have to reserve this for days I'll be alone!

    1. That's a good idea...I never thought about single serve.

  2. I love love tilapia!!! I usually just seasoning it with a little lemon pepper and pan fry it with some olive oil. So yummy.
