BlueWater Seafoods Review and Giveaway



I was approached by BlueWater Seafoods and asked if I would like to review one of their Gluten Free products. After thinking about it, I said yes and was sent a very useful sling bag and a free product coupon to redeem for one of their Gluten Free items.

I chose to take on this review because I feel that BlueWater Seafoods truly wants and values my honest opinion. To me, that is VERY important.



I chose to try the Haddock Classic Grill. 






Out of the box
Ever hear the phrase "don't judge a book by it's cover"? Well we have a case of that here.  Upon opening the box, you are presented with two packaged fillets that leave a lot to the imagination. 

Frozen food is not pretty. It's convenient.


I followed the instructions for oven use. If anyone is brave enough to try the microwave route, please let me know how that goes for you. 




In the oven
Being Celiac, its hard to find fish that you can just pop in the  oven and eat. Almost everything is breaded *cringes* in wheat. I had not explored eating fresh fish very much as all that pin boning and prep scares me to be honest.




I have to say that I am really impressed with the Gluten Free indication on the top right corner of the box! If more companies took little steps like this, my grocery shopping time would be cut in half. 



BlueWater Seafoods  participates in the Trusted Catch program.


"BlueWater is committed to protecting and enhancing the sustainability of seafood resources and is working actively to support this under our Trusted Catch program. Trusted Catch encompasses all of our sustainability initiatives, from sustainable seafood sourcing to other green efforts including a more efficient plant and distribution network.

Eighteen minutes after oven entry (oven temperatures vary) dinner was ready. What a transformation! The frozen brick turned into a beautifully cooked piece of fish. My first impressions of this fish were boldly changed upon taste. It was moist and flavorful. Usually, I'm the first person at the table to add a sauce or a dip to what I am eating. Not this time though. The seasoning really enhanced the flavor of the fish without overpowering it. No need for anything extra here.

The verdict? Pretty sure that I will by this product again as it is very simple to make and the price point of $4.99 per box is not overkill. I like that this is something  I can make for myself on a busy night, without a hassle. Since I only cooked the one piece of fish, I am eager to try out a recipe from the BlueWater website with the next piece.


Finished baking

  3. I actually had this for the first time last night before seeing your blog and posted to Ontario Celiac group asking if it was gluten free (because I thought it seemed to good to be true!!)

    The product I tried was not labelled GF but it is new and it was clear of all gluten containing ingredients etc, awesome!

  4. THis is wonderful! It would be so much faster to have a gluten free breaded fish already made that you can just pop into the oven...

  5. That looks great! I love fish, but hadn't seen this product before. I tend to buy fish that is cleaned and frozen, but with no seasoning. This looks like a great option for nights I don't want to try and figure out what to make.
