Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Seafood Giveaway

Busy families means we have to think fast sometimes when it comes to our meals.  We don’t want to be slaving over the stove when we have been running our kids around all day, working, cleaning, sitting for 2 hours at child’s sport practice, etc…  It’s time to eat food that we all love and a brand that we all can trust.

Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi

11065303_10153142501760638_3564436127349795194_n

(Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi with a Artichoke and mayo dip.  This was the kids plate)

OUR RECIPE (feeds 2 adults and 2 small kids):

  • One Box of Gorton’s Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi
  • Angel Hair Pasta
  • Sliced Mushrooms (use what you need… we did about 6 of them)
  • A Side Vegetable (we used a whole artichoke per person) w/ mayo dip

DIRECTIONS:

  • Heat water into large pot for the pasta to a boil.   Add some salt (i like to use sea salt).
  • While waiting for water to boil prepare your vegetable of choice.  If using artichoke get water ready for that.  Large, large pot and boil water.  If really young kids trim ends of leaves so they don’t poke.  Just use scissors and cut.  You don’t eat that part anyways.  If a long stem cut that down a bit too.  Once water is boiling place in water.  This can take about 20 minutes of cooking time so plan ahead with your cooking.
  • Slice up some mushrooms.  Take out the Gorton’s Shrimp Scampi from the box and place all in a sauté pan.  I didn’t even add any oil.  Heat on medium.  There is a frozen sauce on the shrimp and you will notice it as it heats up that it will turn to a sauce.  Don’t over cook the shrimp so plan it out.  I would almost do this last.  Read the instructions on the box.
  • Add your noodles to your plate (could even use rice instead), add your vegetable and top the noodles with your Gorton’s Garlic Shrimp Scampi!  Finishing touches you could add some grated parmo on top of the scampi but it really doesn’t need it.  So delicious as is!!

READY FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!!  Coming up at the bottom!!  Keep reading… one more recipe to go!

    Who doesn’t need a stuffed fish stick? Plus delicious fish!

  2. I would like to try the new smart and crunchy fish sticks

  3. I would like to try the grilled tilapia.

  4. Our local Walmart has a good selection, but nowhere near what you have listed. I would like to try the Cajun Grilled Fillets.

    • I did notice that Walmart had a lot of them. But you’re right… nothing like what is listed. Fred Meyers had some too… I think most stores near me have them and each had their own variety. Too bad they don’t carry all but then it would take up the whole freezer section. 🙂
