* Item: Gorton's Homestyle Baked Fillets

* What you get: 2 fillets

* Cost: About $4

* Preparation time: 21 to 23 minutes in oven

* Review: From the outset, let me say that no one will ever mistake these frozen pollock fillets for fresh fish. But on a busy night, faced with a choice between these fillets with their homey toppings and the plain old breaded fillets that often seem to be more breading than fish, I'd pick these hands down. We tried the Garlic Butter Crumb and the Broccoli and Cheddar flavors. The garlic flavor came through loud and clear (always a plus if you're a garlic lover). And the broccoli -- mixed with cheese and some bread crumbs -- was comfort food at its best. In both cases, the fish was firm, but not tough. Other flavors include Primavera and Au Gratin.
