I have to admit, I'm not a huge fish eater. Which makes me a kind of heathen among the New Englanders, but I blame my childhood in Colorado :) And since I'm picky about my fresh fish, I'm even more finicky when it comes to the frozen variety. When Gorton's offered to let me try a few of their products I was curious, but definitely cautious.
We first tried the Potato Crusted Fish Filets - hubby, who doesn't normally like fish, raved about the flavor. As for whether "kid-friendly" can be applied to something more than fish sticks? My two year old DEMANDED more - he ate a full sized portion instead of the half-portion we gave him. We also tried the Lemon Butter shrimp - I sauteed them with broccoli and garlic, and served over pasta. Yet again, my toddler ate everything on his plate! The shrimp were tender, and the sauce was good but not too salty. Overall, I was impressed! Gorton's does tend to be a little pricier than I like to pay, but you are actually getting better quality product for the price.
I was really excited to see that the Boy Wonder liked both dishes so much - seafood is rich in Omega-3 fatty acid, which has been shown to promote healthy brain development (like he needs more help in becoming an evil supergenius!) Gorton's is really helping promote fish as a healthy part of kids' diets, and even has a whole section on their website devoted to kid friendly meals and tips for picky eaters.
