Thrifty and Frugal Living: We Love Fish Taco’s with Gorton’s Seafood and Ortega Review and Giveaway

We Love Fish Taco’s with Gorton’s Seafood and Ortega Review and Giveaway










I have already proclaimed my love for Gorton’s Seafood. Now, I have a new way to enjoy their products: Fish Tacos. Although I live in Florida, I have never had a fish taco. This may surprise most of you, but there is a lot of bad fish out there. We generally only get seafood at places we know and trust. So, the fish tacos we have seen on menus often are passed up. It never occurred to me to take a product I love like Gorton’s and make fish tacos.

Gorton’s and Ortega are hosting a We Love Fish Tacos contest where you can win some amazing prizes:


*1 Grand Prize: A trip for four to All-Inclusive Allegro Playacar Resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico for 3 nights, plus 12 Gorton’s and 12 Ortega VIP FREE product coupons and your taco fiesta photo published on www.welovefishtacos.com $5,000 Value!

*10 First Place Prizes: 12 Gorton’s and 12 Ortega VIP FREE product coupons and your taco fiesta photo published on www.welovefishtacos.com $132 Value!


*20 Second Place Prizes: 6 Gorton’s and 6 Ortega VIP FREE product coupons $66 Value!


*3 Voter’s Choice Prizes: Genuine Fiesta® Dinnerware for Four – (Your choice of fifteen colors!) and 12 Gorton’s and 12 Ortega VIP FREE product coupons. $332 Value!


 Here is how you enter. Simply make innovative fish tacos using Gorton's Seafood and Ortega Taco Shell's. Then, take a picture of your family enjoying the tacos with the Gorton's Seafood and Ortega boxes/ bags in the picture. Go to the We Love Fish Taco's contest page and submit your info, recipe/idea, pictures and an explanation of how you turn dinner into a fiesta.



I am pleased to announce that I have now had fish tacos and I loved them! Even more impressive, my not very adventurous Husband loved them. I made two different types of fish tacos. The first ones were regular "original" tacos with fish sticks instead of the hamburger that I normally use. They had Gorton’s fish sticks, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, Ortega Taco Sauce and shredded cheese all wrapped in Ortega’s hard taco shells. The second tacos that I made were my own creation for the contest. They were Hawaiian fist tacos. They consisted of sauteed pineapple with barbeque and hoison sauce over Gorton’s fish sticks on an Ortega hard taco. I love pineapple and these were surprisingly yummy.


The "original" fish tacos


My "Hawaiian" style tacos

I clearly like them! : )

I have never had fish tacos, but when I lived in Mexico I had fish tostadas all the time, and the only difference between a tostada and a taco is that a taco is bent in half, and a tostada is flat.

I haven't but these sound good.

BowieTip said...

My ex-wife and I would buy fish tacos every Friday at a local Mexican restaurant. That and cold Mexican beer meant good eating and good drinking.

Hope to win, as I'd like to try Gorton's Beer Battered Fillets.
