Shrimp Scampi is Gorton’s take on an Italian classic, and it comes in a “Bake Perfect Oven Bag,” which makes it incredibly easy to prepare at home. Simply pop it in the oven, and the shrimp cooks to perfection, while the bag locks in flavor for a perfectly cooked meal.

I love that Gorton’s Seafood makes it super simple. First of all, Gorton’s is “trusted by those who know seafood,” because they have fed families around the world for generations. Gorton’s has actually been around for 167 years, in recent decades with the finest frozen seafood.

You can add their fish to classic dishes, like my Salmon Spaghetti Carbonara, and keep it in the freezer for weeknight meals or last-minute guests. My friend, Lori, used the same salmon and made delicious Salmon Wellington. Great for entertaining or camping or a weeknight meal.
