Pacific Seafood Launches Seasoned Shrimp
Meal-ready solution helps get dinner on the table in 5 minutes.
Portland, Ore., August 14, 2018
Research shows that consumers want to eat more seafood because of the health benefits and taste, but price and how to prepare it are barriers to purchase*. In response, Pacific Seafood officially launched their new value-added line of frozen seasoned shrimp which comes in two flavors, scampi and honey jalapeno.
The easy and versatile meal solution is ideal for the freezer case, as well as numerous food service applications. Our shrimp are dry rubbed with the perfect amount of herbs and spices instead of marinated, so the quality of shrimp shines and maintains its texture. The shrimp is a 31-40 count that is sustainably harvested and processed in a 2 Star BAP certified facility.
“Consumers want to incorporate more seafood in their diet and at Pacific Seafood we develop products that break down barriers to increase consumption,” said Lorin Gelfand, head of innovation for Pacific Seafood. “Lack of confidence in preparing seafood is often cited as a reason consumers don’t buy more seafood. Products such as our new seasoned shrimp help build that confidence.”
To prepare the seasoned shrimp, simply thaw and cook until opaque, approximately 2-3 minutes. The product lends itself to sautéing, broiling, or grilling and is a perfect addition to rice, pasta, stir-fries, and salads. It can also be prepared as an appetizer with dipping sauce making it a natural fit for bistro snack menus.
The product is available now in 20/16 oz. retail bags and foodservice upon request. Learn more: at PacificSeafood.com/seasonedshrimp.
