Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque from Costco
Bowl of Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque

My life got busy, and I haven't posted in a while, but I'm hoping to start up posting again. So this is a late review - I got this lobster bisque with my dad when it was on sale a couple months ago.

My dad ended up freezing the lobster bisque first because he didn't think we'd eat it fast enough, so this was warmed on the stove top from frozen when I had it. The preparation was pretty standard for a pre-made soup - just heat it up on the stove top until it's hot, stirring occasionally, or you can microwave it in a microwave-safe bowl, as well.

The consistency of the soup was good - not watery or super thick. I really liked the savory seafood taste. It wasn't overwhelming, but it did taste quite good. The lobster pieces were pretty small, and some pieces seemed a little dry. It also wasn't super filling, and I kept going back to get more. I haven't had much lobster bisque before, so I don't have much to compare it to, but it did taste really good overall.

Box of frozen High Liner Tortilla Crusted Tilapia

Plate of cooked Tortilla Crusted Tilapia from Costco

This tortilla crusted tilapia from Costco has become one of our quick, go-to meals when we can't figure out what to eat. We cook it using the conventional oven instructions. The instructions say to cook them at 425 degrees F for 10-13 minutes, but we usually cook it for 14 or 15 minutes so the crust is crispy and the fish never gets mushy. One thing that makes this different than other frozen breaded/crusted fishes I've had is that only one side is crusted. It makes it easier to cook because there's no flipping midway.

The tilapia comes out flaky on the inside and crunchy on the outside. It has a nice and savory, well-seasoned Mexican food taste to it, and it has a little bit of spice, as well. Sometimes I wrap one in a soft flour tortilla and eat it as a fish taco -- and it tastes great that way, too. I really enjoy the taste of these, and I'm reminded how delicious they are every time I have one!

Box of Trident Seafood''s Panko Breaded Tilapia
Trident Panko Breaded Tilapia cooked

When we tried Trident's frozen Panko Breaded Tilapia, we baked three tilapia pieces following the oven instructions on the box. It recommends baking the tilapia for 18-22 minutes -- since I've had problems with mushy frozen fish in the past, we went for a full 22 minutes, flipping the fish after the first 12 minutes.

The outer parts of the fish were nice and flaky, however, the thicker parts close to the center of the fish still came out mushy. It had a mild salty and savory, bready taste. The breading was very crunchy and did taste like panko breading. The fish itself was fairly plain, so the breading added flavor to the fish, however, the breading also made it a little too filling for me.
