Gorton's Grilled Tilapia Review

 


Good seafood that is good for you.


I've lived in coastal communities on both the West Coast and the East Coast in years past and thereby acquired a real love for fish and seafood.  Coastal living also has the advantage of the availability of fresh seafood.


Now life circumstances have brought me back to the Midwest where 'fresh' is only found in specialty markets at a premium price due to coastal seafood having to be shipped inland. So a readily available, but tasty, substitute had to be found to satisfy my seafood and fish cravings.  I found just such a product in Gorton's Grilled Tilapia fillets with roasted garlic & butter. 


Gorton's Grilled Tilapia



This frozen grilled tilapia fillets dish is delicious. It is quick and easy to prepare (20 minutes at 400 degrees baked in a conventional oven) and has a nice, fresh taste. I like mine served with white rice, as the garlic butter sauce lends itself well to this accompaniment. 



The 6.3 ounce package has two fish fillets in it and each fillet is only 100 calories. Seasoned with real herbs and spices, these Tilapi fillets are also gluten-free.  One fillet per person is perfect when served with side dishes.

The fillets can also be cooked in the microwave, but I prefer the oven baking method best. Plus, if I cook long-grain rice to go with it, the rice also takes 20 minutes. Perfect timing. 




Other Gorton Tilapi Products


Gorton's also has other varieties of their Tilapia dishes. The Signature Grilled Tilapia tastes like it has been grilled outside.  And Gorton's two Skilled Crisp Tilapia selections are lightly battered and coated with garlic and herb seasonings or with classic seasonings  with just a squeeze of fresh lemon.

  1. Talapia is one of the nicest fish to eat. We do a fish night at least once a week, usually Fridays (old Catholic habits). For a long time we did frozen fish products, but lately, we go for the fresh. It's readily available to us. If I did not have that choice, I would definitely give these a try. Thanks for the recommendation. Next time we visit (when travel bans are lifted) we will make sure to try these! Thanks Pat Austin for the recommendation.

    1. Thanks, Olivia. I DO prefer fresh seafood and fish, but not readily available here in the Midwest. There are times I miss the coastal communities I used to live in.

  2. This sounds like the best substitute for fresh fish. I do like oven-baked fish. Mine is usually breaded, but my husband prefers the fish flavor to dominate, therefore he prefers the lightly seasoned variety instead of it being "coated" with something (which will not surprise you!) I'm certain he would enjoy the grilled flavor too. I'll have to look for this brand in our store. I'll be sure to tell him his fellow seafood lover recommended it.

  3. While I'm not a fish eater myself, now that we live in Boston, I've learned how much most people love eating fresh fish. And, as a fan of the Food Network, I know how popular tilapia has become. Gloucester fisherman are renowned, and I'm not surprised that Gorton's was founded there, given its long and excellent reputation. How wonderful to be able to enjoy freshly cooked tilapia that was caught and frozen at the peak of freshness, wherever you live and whenever you want it!

    1. Margaret, I remember visiting Gloucester on a family trip to New England many years ago. So to see the famous Man at the Wheel fisherman statue depicted on the Gorton's packaging seemed very authentic for a company located in Gloucester, MA.
