I don't make New Year's Resolution but I do jot down my goals at the start of the year so I will be on track of what is need to be need and accomplished. One of my goals this year is to stay active and eat healthier. That's why I was stoked to received this review kit valued at $75 from Gorton which include the following:

My husband is not very fond of fish especially tilapia but he likes this one because it is already seasoned and you don't need to use oil to cook it in a skillet. The tilapia is so flaky and fresh tasting. I had mine with rice and pineapple and orange salsa with sriracha sauce yum! My kids and husband had theirs with sour krout (weird combination eh, but what4ver works right?)
So here's the verdict of the two fish fillets above. We love the potato crusted fish fillets. We ate it with my baked potatoes with broccoli and cheese and wild rice.
My husband and son tied the fish sandwich fillets yesterday. They said it was okay but still preferred the potato crusted one. I made my husband a sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, and tartar sauce.
My son ate his with wild rice, vegetable medley, and a slice of tomato. He also preferred the potato crusted one o over this.
My daughter and I had the grilled tilapia yesterday for dinner.
The seasoning came off after I baked it. I was hoping that the grilled mark will be there but since the seasoning got melted, it was nothing like a grilled tilapia although it still tasted good, the appearance isn't what I expected it too. So our verdict is, we preferred the skillet crisp tilapia over the grilled one.
