“Fisherman’s Friday” Product Review and Giveaway 4/15

I have a Giveaway I am happy to be apart of to bring to my readers. I hope you enjoy! 
This Review & Giveaway is brought to you by Feisty FruGal's
My family was provided with 2 free product coupons from Gorton's to participate in a review and a giveaway of 3 envelopes of 2 free product coupons of your own! I was SUPER EXCITED to be a part of this, because I LOVE supporting local companies. Not only is Gorton's local (REALLY REALLY LOCAL), but Gorton's also supports sustainability This is something I strive for and hope to achieve as much as I can.
 As a resident of Massachusetts, and having lived here all my life, as well as on the cost, this effects me daily.

So, this is something I GREATLY appreciate and am VERY thankful for!
The products my family chose were the Classic Crispy Battered Fillet's and the Popcorn Shrimp!
The Classic Crispy Battered Fillet's went over like gangbusters! I will admit, though I am a foodie I have NEVER made fish before! The boys were SUPER HAPPY to have fish in the house!
These were BETTER than the Fish and Chips that you would get at a Family Restaurant for a minimum of $9.99 a plate. I made this for about $2.20 a serving, and I used Legal Seafood Tartar Sauce. Remember, I am in Massachusetts so, that is saying something! The Classic Crispy Battered Fillets were tender, flaky, crispy, and DELICIOUS! (Note to self, DO NOT USE TONGS TO TURN THEM!) The second entree my family chose was the Popcorn Shrimp. This would have been great on its own with cocktail sauce. However, I dared to be different, and put my OWN twist on this classic.
My 13-year-old son made shrimp scampi with the Popcorn Shrimp. My family loved it, and there were NO LEFTOVERS! I walked him through the process, and I was NOT allowed in the kitchen during the process. Seriously, it is THAT easy! I had him smash 4 cloves of Garlic 4 Tbsp of Olive Oil 2 Tsp nature's seasoning Approximately 12 leaves of fresh basil cut into ribbons 1 Lb linguine Leave this while the pasta cooks. (Cooked to package instructions, although I prefer my pasta little al dente') Reserve 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water from cooking the pasta to toss in with the linguine. Put the pasta in a covered bowl, and toss occasionally while the shrimp is cooking according to package instructions. Josh used 1/2 bag of shrimp to feed 3 people. This worked out to approximately $1.50 per serving.
Okay, so now that I showed you what my family LOVED about Gorton's, let me tell you what else they offer. As you can see, Gorton's isn't all about fish sticks! Gorton's offers SO MUCH MORE! I think the Grilled Shrimp would have been really tasty in this dish as well. However, I wanted to show you something a little different. This could be a VERY healthy dish with the grilled shrimp, olive oil, and garlic. So, whatever you decide you will like, Gorton's has it. If you don't have time to make this dish, Gorton's has already prepared Shrimp Scampi and Lemon Shrimp Scampi! I was looking at the Skillet Crisp in the store but, boys will be boys, and they went for the classics. But, doesn't this look delicious?
So, here is YOUR chance to try a couple of these products. And, even if you don't win they are very economical, and delicious so I suggest you give them a try on your own! Open only to US as the products are only available in the US.
 Good Luck & I hope a SaraLee's Deals Steals & Giveaways reader wins!
