Gorton's Review + Giveaway Closed!




This time of year, like many others, we will be spending a whole lot of time with family. At my parents house, everyone comes in from out of town and we spend time together. A whole lot of sitting down and catching up. Eating together, snacking together, family time! I love it. I love going home and visiting over the holidays. I love all of the time and moments we share as a family this time of year. This year when we are sitting around talking, we will be eating some Gorton's Frozen Seafood. I was on the Gorton's site earlier, and I printed off some great recipes to take to my parents and share with my family. I am really looking forward to the afternoon on Christmas Eve when we will all be at my parents with friends and family, eating and sampling lots of wonderful foods. I plan on getting some of the Gorton's Grilled Shrimp Scampi so I can make some of the Spicy Chipotle Shrimp Cups. I think these will be a hit this year! I also plan on making some of the Gorton's Inside Out Shrimp Poppers, and since I was given, courtesy of Gorton's , some coupons to purchase some of the wonders Gorton's Seafood, I am going to use them this holiday season!!
Create an upscale appetizer tray in less than 15 minutes, featuring a trio of Gorton’s shrimp products, leaving you time to actually enjoy your holiday get-together: Spicy Chipotle Shrimp Cups (recipe below) made with Gorton’s Grilled Shrimp Scampi, Gorton’s Popcorn Shrimp and Butterfly Shrimp Temptations. Skewer extra Grilled Shrimp Scampi on the side.
