Gorton’s Fish Sandwich reviewed

Eight frozen squares of panko breaded and frozen pollock come to this package. The right yellow bag is also resealable which is always appreciated.

Cooking: The packaging instructs you to only bake these. I reached for my trusty air fryer for the results you see below. That’s always superior to the oven.

Taste and texture: The batter comes out plenty crisp, but it quickly becomes apparent the fish/batter ratio skews toward the latter. That may be a good thing in your book. Like many products in this class there exists a mushy/slimy layer between fish and breading. The fish flavor, what there is, is largely lost to the heavy breading.

Overall: It’s not awful, there are much worse products out there for sure. At a push I’d rate this as mediocre. Layered up with some sandwich fixings, the flaws become less apparent.

What else is out there: The Alaskan Pollock fish sticks from Trident beat all contenders as far as I am concerned. There’s a notably better fish to ratio, as well as a better quality fish and no mushiness.

Are Gorton's Fish Sandwich any good?

This is a somewhat average product marred by minimal fish and mushiness. It’s not terrible, but the breading is the most assertive flavor here.
