High Liner Foods Announces New Street Style Seafood
New product line captures vibe of lively food culture
PORTSMOUTH, N.H., March 5, 2015 – High Liner Foods, the leading value-added seafood supplier in North America, today announced the launch of Street Style Seafood, a new line of seafood products in the FPI brand for the U.S. foodservice market. The inspiration for the line is today’s exciting trend of chef-inspired food being offered in non-traditional venues such as food trucks, pop-up restaurants and grab-and-go kiosks for all-day flexible eating appeal.
Street Style Seafood is ideal for many menu parts including shareables, appetizers, small plates and on-the-go dining. It provides operators with growth opportunities by meeting the need for innovative, premium quality, and portable snack options. Inspired by the flavors of the world and the hot street vendor trend, Street Style Seafood offers something for everyone.
Included in the new line are:
• Shrimpanadas™: Available in three flavors: Shrimp & Chipotle Pepper, Shrimp & Black Bean and Shrimp & Mango Salsa. Combining global flavors and America’s favorite seafood, these handmade seafood empanadas provide a portable option that’s perfect for catering or as a fun appetizer plate.
• Fish N’ Chips On A Stick: Available in two varieties: on a stick and as a strip. Featuring hand-cut cod strips coated with a crispy French Fry coating, Fish N’ Chips on a Stick is a tasty and unique all-in-one twist on a classic seafood pairing.
• Tempura Battered Sushi: These bite-size California rolls are tempura battered for a deliciously crunchy take on sushi, ideal for appetizers or in combination plates.
• Classic Sushi : A popular favorite, High Liner Foods’ California Roll includes Surimi, carrots and creamy avocado. The item gives operators the thaw-and-serve simplicity for back-of-house ease, eliminating the need for expensive sushi prep activity altogether.
“Our Street Style Seafood line satisfies today’s consumer and operator desire, to have more tasty menu options besides traditional sit-down entrée meal occasions” said Carolyn Piscatelli, Senior Brand Manager for High Liner Foods. “These items are on-trend and leverage the exciting global cuisine culture preferred by Millennials”
Fish N’ Chips On A Stick was recently named a finalist in the Seafood Excellence Awards for Best New Foodservice Product of 2015. The winner will be announced at the Seafood Expo North America in Boston on March 15.
