Gorton’s Artisan Fillets #RealSolutions Review

Disclaimer: I received a free product for my post! These views are my own and were not 
at all influenced by the party who gave me this opportunity..

I love meals that are quick and simple, especially on our busy days when I don’t have much time to cook. Anything that is healthy and comes prepared is perfect for my family so when I was presented with the opportunity to try Gorton’s Artisan Filets I jumped at it. Gorton’s sells high-quality seafood that is ready to cook and serve to your family.

I am not huge on fish unless it is salmon, but my husband and son enjoy it and the Artisan Breaded Fish Filets sounded like something I might eat. The Gorton’s Artisan line comes in four varieties. I really wanted to try the Southern Style or Southwest Tortilla, but our store only had the Lemon & Cracked Peppercorn and Roasted Garlic & Italian Herbs varieties. We decided to try the Roasted Garlic & Italian Herbs filets.

What I Love

I love that Gorton’s Artisan Filets are low in calorie–only 150-170 calories per filet–and have no fillers, MSG, or artificial colors and flavors. The crust is tasty with real breadcrumbs, panko breadcrumbs, crunchy corn coating, or crushed tortilla chips. The recipes are authentic and the blend we tried tasted great.

These Gorton’s Filets were so easy to cook–just take them out of the freezer, pop them in the oven to cook, then serve them up! I love that you do not have to make all the filets at once so you can please everyone in your family. Gorton’s Artisan Filets are perfect for pulling together a quick meal when you are low on time–the Roasted Garlic & Italian Herbs filets paired well with a fresh salad full of vegetables.  

What I’m Not Huge On

Gorton’s Artisan Filets are made with real wild-caught Alaska Pollock. As I mentioned earlier, I am not huge on any fish besides salmon and occasionally tilapia, but I still really wanted to try these. In all honesty, I did not like them too much. The crust tasted great, but they tasted a lot like fish sticks which I cannot eat. My son ate them alright and my husband said that they tasted good, so if you enjoy fish like Pollock this would be a great option for making healthier, tasty meals.

I was also not too fond of the texture. We baked the filets according to the directions on the package and they turned out rather mushy in my opinion and I was expecting them to be flakier. As you can see in the picture I took, they broke apart very easily. My husband again did not mind, but he agreed it was not the texture he would have preferred.

Overall, while I personally would not eat the Artisan Filets again, they are a great meal to serve to my family and I continue to enjoy other Gorton’s products like their salmon and their shrimp.
