May 25, 2020
March 25, 2020—Portland, Ore.— With many states experiencing wiped out store shelves, restaurant closures, and stay home orders, the demand for frozen proteins has skyrocketed and many find themselves without access to this critical food source. To meet this consumer demand Pacific Seafood is launching its ecommerce platform, Pacific Seafood Marketplace which will ship premium sustainable
We’ve curated a premium selection of seafood into four (4) different options for you to choose from so you can share the healthiest protein on the planet with your family and friends!
Our unique supply chain allows us to harvest our proteins direct from the source, whether that’s the clear blue waters of the Pacific, or the ice cold rivers of the Northwest. Our expert teams are busy harvesting, processing and packing our products daily for delivery right to your door.
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.
