Product Rave for Trident Panko Breaded Alaskan Cod (with Kalyn's Homemade Tartar Sauce)

I'm currently out of the country traveling in Turkey and Kenya, so replies to comments may be delayed until I return home. If you'd like to see my pictures from the trip, you can do that by following me on Instagram or Twitter.

I'm a member of "The Church of Costco". That's what National Public Radio called those folks who go to Costco every weekend and are religious in their zeal about the place. I don't buy a lot of frozen convenience foods, since I like to make my own food. But once in a while Costco has a product that really tempts me.

I was tempted for weeks to buy Trident Seafoods Panko Breaded Alaskan Cod, since the carb count was low, and fish and chips was something I had always loved before I started caring about the glycemic index. For some reason I resisted buying this for weeks before I finally succumbed. When I did try it I was very happy with it.

I followed instructions on the package and baked it at 425 degrees for 22 minutes, turning halfway through. (I made the homemade tartar sauce while it baked.) For a frozen foods product, this was first rate. It was as good as I've had in lots of restaurants. Even though this type of food product is something I won't ever eat a lot of, this is a good thing to have on hand for those nights when you just don't want to cook.

For those who care, the recommended serving size of 2 filets of Trident Panko Breaded Alaska Cod has:

10g fat
1.5 g saturated fat
0g trans fat
15mg cholestral
280 mg sodium
18g total carbs (9g fiber, 1g sugar)
11g protein

Some of the filets are small, so two is a small serving, but even if you splurged and had three this would still be quite low fat, low carb, and low sodium for this type of food product. I recommend it highly.

Kalyn's Homemade Tartar Sauce

1 cup mayo (or use half mayo and half light mayo)
1/3 cup dill pickles
2 T capers
1 tsp. onion powder

Put pickles into bowl of food processor and process until finely minced. Add other ingredients and pulse a few times. This will keep in the refrigerator for about a month. It's not a low fat creation, but it sure did taste good on the fish.

  1. Kalyn --

    Does your Costco still carry the Trident Panko Breaded Alaskan Cod. I loved it like you, but our Costco stopped carrying it and I wanted to see if it's just ours or a national decision.

  2. I'll check next time I go to Costco.

  3. I'll have to pick some of that variety up next time. Today we bought Trident's salmon burgers, and they were dee-lish-us!

  4. These have been discontinued by Costco. :(
    I loved them while they were avaialble.
