Hey you. Yeah, you.
The one with three dozen frozen caterpillars on a cookie sheet.
Oh. Those are fish sticks? My bad.
I used to be there, chum. I know it feels like purgatory, to dump out frozen chunks onto a cookie sheet and call it dinner. Some little kids won’t eat anything but the Holy Trinity of Tots: chicken nuggets, fish sticks, and mac & cheese.
That orange pack of powder ought to have a food group all its own.
Things change, though. Trust me.
One day, the kids will turn from their nuggets and fish sticks to the stuff you have on your plate. If it’s a salmon filet or tilapia, you’re in for it. My girls ransacked my Gorton’s salmon filet. Killed it. And from that day on … fish sticks just wouldn’t cut it.
I recently had the chance to review Gorton’s authentic artisan recipe selections. Later in this review, you’ll have a chance to win coupons good for two boxes of artisan fillets yourself, and even a cool cutting board.
(Try and cut up some veggies to go with the fish. My girls wanted me to cut up fudge on them.)

What we loved
We picked up boxes of artisan authentic recipe fillets:
- Lemon and Cracked Peppercorn
- Roasted Garlic and Herb
- Southern Style
- Southwest Tortilla
Soccer nights cut right into mealtime. When you can whip out delicious, seasoned fish fillets and have them ready in less than 30 minutes, that’s a plus. I found it impossible to pick a favorite, but the kids said the Roasted Garlic and Herb filets were their favorites.
Well, the oldest two, anyway.
Grace said she liked the Southern Style best, but her empty plate on Roasted Garlic and Herb night told another story. I predicted the herbs to be too strong for the kid who thinks honey mustard dip means fine dining. I was wrong.
These kids destroyed these fillets.
What we didn’t love
The price. At around $5 per box, we’d need two to keep everyone fed. We’d need a sale or coupon (or both) to justify its place on the dinner menu. It’s tough when three kids’ appetites grow like fish tales.
Today’s the last day to enter the Real Solutions Sweepstakes. But Gorton’s has allowed me to give away my own prize pack.
Just leave a comment on this blog about why you’d like to try Gorton’s artisan recipe solutions. That will qualify you for a chance to win coupons for two selections, plus a Gorton’s cutting board.
Entries end at midnight, April 29.
I’ll pick the winner at random, and contact you by email.

I was not compensated for this post, but I did receive coupons for free artisan products. Oh, and a cool cutting board.
