Our family has a fun family night almost every Friday night. I throw pizza dough in the bread machine, we pop some popcorn, and we enjoy a fun family movie together. Sea Cuisine offered to send us a fun family night gift basket and send us a sampling of the flavors that are offered by the company.
In our basket of fun was two packets of microwavable rice, a Sea Cuisine Tortilla Crusted Tilapia, Sea Cuisine Potato Crusted Cod, a cookie mix, popcorn, and “A Bug’s Life” movie- all of the ingredients we could ever want for a fun night at home together.
The company has employed an Executive Chef Owen Tilley to develop restaurant-quality foods that can be found in your freezer section of your local supermarket. Chef Owen Tilley left behind the restaurant life and began working with High Liner Foods to develop a great product line where consumers could have a restaurant experience in the comfort of their own home.
Preparation of the fish is very easy and requires a quick baking in the oven. I baked the fish on our pizza stone to ensure extra crispiness. While the fish baked, I zapped the rice in the microwave and then sat down to enjoy the movie with the kids.
The kids gobbled up the Potato Crusted Cod, but I managed to grab a bite to taste it myself. I really loved this fish because it was crisp on the outside and a generous fish fillet of cod inside that was cooked perfectly. Both kids love fish and this seemed to fit the bill perfectly with them.
My husband and I ate the Tortilla Crusted Tilapia (pictured above) which was crisp and delicious but extremely spicy. You could feel the heat of the fish even when just opening the oven. I later read in the description that the fish was also crusted in chipotle and lime, which explains the spice factor a little better.If you can’t handle spicy food, this fish isn’t for you. Again, this was a generous filet of fish and looked exactly like something you would get at a restaurant.
Each package of fish came in a package of two so if you have a large family, you would definitely need a few of these packages. I do know that many of the wholesale clubs offer this fish in the larger box quantity which would probably be a lot more cost effective. That being said, I was really impressed with the generous portion sizes of the fish and the thickness of it.
We had a fantastic family night and we thank Sea Cuisine for giving us a chance to sample their great product and all of the thoughtful inclusions for a fun family night together. What can be better off than a night off from rolling out that pizza dough on Fridays?
