Now that Lent is here, it’s officially “fish season.”  Fish frys are all over our our city.  And while some nice, deep fried fish is delicious – it’s not the most healthy thing ever.  Since my husband, Miles, and I are trying to lose weight and get healthier, we have been looking for healthier options.  Of course one of those things we’ve been enjoying more, are salads.  A plain old salad, though, gets really boring.  Thankfully Gorton’s has some great new grilled products so we can take our salads to the next level and still participate in Lent!

Gorton’s new Grilled Fillets are made with all natural ingredients and are gluten free!  Each fillet is between 80-100 calories, depending on the flavor that you get, so you know you’re getting a lower calorie fillet that still has great flavor!  The flavors available are:

  • Cajun Grilled
  • Garlic Butter
  • Italian Herb
  • Lemon Butter
  • Lemon Pepper
  • Salmon: Classic Grilled
  • Salmon: Lemon Butter

With all of these great flavors, I am sure you will be able to find a flavor that you will enjoy!  These new Grilled Fillets are such a great addition to Gorton’s entire line of products.

Like I mentioned before, we have been trying to eat healthier.  We used the Garlic Butter Grilled Fillets in a salad to add some extra flavor!  Here’s our simple recipe!
