-- Gorton's frozen Tilapia

For any of you dieting, I can't recommend these enough, well, in a pinch anyways.

Definitely tasty and easy.

80 calories per fillet

Gorton's Grilled Tilapia Delivers Great Taste & White, Flaky Fish
If you've got a hankering for some tasty tilapia but don't have the time or money to buy and prepare fresh fish, then try Gorton's Grilled Tilapia - available in your grocer's frozen section. Gorton's Grilled Tilapia comes in a roasted garlic and butter variety that really offers delicious flavor and moist texture.

Gorton's Grilled Tilapia offers all the freshness and quality we expect from the brand. In fact, the box even carries a label touting its Five Star Tilapia. According to the carton, the Gorton's Five Star Tilapia designation is given because this lean-cut fish is white and flaky, possesses a mild flavor, is quick-frozen for freshness, and is "100%" inspected for quality and safety.

Preparation

Gorton's Grilled Tilapia can be cooked in either a microwave or conventional oven. I chose to cook mine in a conventional oven, which requires a 400-degree setting. You then place the tilapia seasoned-side up in an aluminum foil-lined metal pan and then let the grilled tilapia fillets cook for 18 to 20 minutes.

In a microwave, each grilled tilapia fillet cooks up in about 3-1/2 minutes - 5-1/2 minutes if you're cooking two fillets at a time. Be sure you place the fillets on a microwavable plate and then cover this with wax paper.

Flavor

If you've read any of my other frozen fist reviews, you'll know I've had hit-or-miss experiences with the taste and texture of frozen fish. Generally, I only review food products I like, so you can be assured that Gorton's Grilled Tilapia passed my personal test of quality.

The grilled tilapia is good because the flavor of the fish itself is fresh, the texture is indeed flaky and not mushy or mealy like some other frozen fish products, and the overall taste of the garlic and butter seasoning really gives this grilled tilapia a satisfyingly rich, pleasant flavor. The seasoning sauce also reduces the chance that the fish might taste dried out.

just had two w/ a cup of white frozen corn, the fish is really good. Nice steaky texture and rather filling, they're about $3.45 for two pieces.

They offer salmon too, not bad for a quick easy meal.

Corn flakes and fish in the same meal. That's gotta be good for you, right?

I'm having salmon tonight too (not Gorton's), with green beans sauteed in a little olive oil, with Italian bread crumbs.

Tilapia does not have a high oil content so it does not alter the taste much.

The trouble is that even though Gortons is a good brand, it's still manufactured food from a factory. While the calories may be low, how's the sodium and all the other levels? It's like Lean Cuisine, low in calories but bad in everything else.
