The pros: Trader Joe's Battered Halibut makes for a quick, easy dinner. Crispy batter when it comes out of the toaster oven. Just needs a side dish.
The cons: Is it as good as homemade? No, nor is it as good as your local pub if you are looking for fish and chips. $8.99 for the box, pricey, but a few filet o fish at McDonalds will set you back just as much. Plus this does taste better.
The verdict: I'll keep this on hand in my freezer. I like fish but hate the way frying it stinks up the entire house. While not as good as fresh fried fish, I thought it was better than Gorton's. I'm the only person in my household who will eat fish so this makes more sense in my situation.

What did I think of this? I'll buy it again. The batter was crispy. All it needed was some fresh lemon and some tartar sauce. If you are in the frozen aisle and see a different box also labeled battered halibut, it is a gluten free option available as well. I haven't tried it yet. I'm sure I will soon.

I plan to try this as a friend from work recommended the gluten-free version. I intend to try them both. I have increased the amount of fish I eat and I love wild caught salmon and halibut. Halibut is very pricey but this version is more affordable than some frozen halibut I’ve seen.
Hey Margie! I would love for you to let me know what you think. I agree, Halibut is expensive, but there aren't too many fish items that aren't pricey unfortunately. In my household, we observe Lent so there is way more fish being consumed this time of year too. Can't wait to hear what you think! Thanks for stopping by!
