BlueWater Seafoods Gluten Free

For more than 50 years, BlueWater Seafoods, located in Lachine, Quebec, has been dedicated to preparing high quality, great-tasting seafood.   More recently, BlueWater took the steps necessary to ensure that all of its Grill Fish products are gluten free. Did you know that an estimaimageted 3 million people in Canada are living with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. And while the absence of gluten in the diet of a person with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity alleviates uncomfortable symptoms, it is often a challenge to find gluten free products that are satisfying and taste good.

Now people with gluten intolerance can trust BlueWater Seafoods as their grill fish is gluten free.   The high quality fish is flame-grilled and lightly seasoned in a variety of mouthwatering flavours.     You can trust that the same great taste will be found in the gluten free products.  You have a choice of grill fillets, grill salmon, grill haddock and grill tilapia.  If I had a choice I would go directly with the tilapia or the haddock as I really enjoyed both of these fish in the past.   The company has also implemented procedures to avoid cross-contemination and an on-going monitoring and testing is done in order to ensure that the grill fillets are gluten free

PanSear_Haddock_ENFor the purpose of this review, I have received a coupon for me to try on of their products.   At the store where I was, my husband and I decided to go with the Pan Sear Haddock as there was not a lot of choices of BlueWater products.   The fish was lightly coated and had garlic and herb seasoning.  

On the night of the day Pope Francis was voted, we decided to have fish with the kids.   The Pan Sear Haddock contained two large fish fillets which was enough for us parents.  So we made fish sticks for the kids.   Honestly, the fish from the Pan Sear Haddock was delicious and would have made a better choice for everyone in the family.   I almost wish they would do a family size box for this variety.  With six in the family, there was no way we could feed everyone with two fillets.

The Pan Sear products can be cooked either on the stovetop or in the oven.  We decided to cook everything in the oven and the fish was crispy in the outside but melting in the mouth from the inside.   And the best part is that the filets were not oily whatsoever when we served them. 

We had a fabulous meal and we enjoyed it a lot.  My two oldest kids wanted to taste it so I gave them a bite each.  They couldn’t believe the difference compared to their fish stick.   Blue Water Seafoods definitively has high quality fish when making their products.  

I would like to encourage everyone to try one of their products in a near future.
