My husband grew up on the coast and just loves seafood, so I try to make it for him as often as I can. My son is quickly following in his footsteps. His favorite is salmon, and he gets it whenever we go out. Now with Gorton’s Gourmet Fillets I can easily make it at home. Recently, I whipped up Salmon Alfredo Pasta to rave reviews!
There are so many reasons why seafood is a great addition to your diet. It contains natural omega-3 fatty acids, lean protein, and important vitamins and minerals that can aid brain development, promote heart health, help fight obesity, improve arthritis and joint pain, and improve overall health. Did you know that the USDA, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and American Diabetes Association all recommend eating seafood at least twice a week?
I’ve been wanting to make more seafood at home, but I have been a little scared of fish fillets. My dad was not a fan of fish when I was growing up, so my mom never cooked it. I didn’t really learn how to prepare it. But now, it’s so easy with Gorton’s Gourmet Fillets. This past weekend I picked up Gorton’s Signature Seasoned Salmon and Pub-Style Beer Batter Cod. Using the salmon, I made Salmon Alfredo Pasta, and my family just loved it.
The salmon was so easy to prepare. Eack package comes with two fillets. You leave it frozen until you’re ready to cook it, and then just follow the directions on the box. It cooked in just 16 minutes and was perfectly tender and flaky. I think I’ve found my son’s new favorite dish — Salmon Alfredo Pasta! While the salmon was baking, I made angel hair pasta and a Greek yogurt alfredo sauce. When the fish was ready, I sliced it up and combined it all for a delicious meal.
