Looking for decent packaged frozen fish

masshlx Jul 12, 2012 05:28 AM

Hello. My wife's mum lives with us, not that mobile. She likes seafood (unlike the 2 of us) so we try to bring home seafood dishes to go when we go out to eat. Recently, we bought Gorton's Garlic Butter Grilled Fillets, which she was not impressed with. Are there any good frozen entrees at a local supermarket that anybody could recommend?
As an aside, we live between Boston and Cape Cod.

    What does she like, in particular?

      Try a fishmonger; the full-service ones typically prepare their own frozen entrees.

        ferret just reminded me, Captain Marden's out of Wellesley has frozen entrees that I have seen for sale at Russo's in Watertown. Maybe give them a call to see if they sell at any other outlets closer to your area..

          They list the outlets that carry their products on their website:

        There seems to be a Trader Joe's in Hanover. They might have something you'd be interested in. Most TJ's have a good assortment of frozen fish (unseasoned/uncooked).

          Costco has a good selection of frozen seafood and fish items.
