MSC launches recipe competition
The Marine Stewardship Council last week announced the launch of a sustainable seafood recipe competition in the United Kingdom.
The judges, who will be announced nearer the final, will choose a shortlist of three entries to compete in a cook-off and tasting at the MSc’s UK commercial meeting in November. Prizes include a trip for two to the Shetlands Islands shellfish fishery.
To enter the contest chefs must work at an MSC certified restaurant in the UK.
“With over 120 fisheries across the world now certified, we know that there’s a wealth of delicious MSC recipes being cooked up in kitchens across the world now certified, we know that there’s a wealth of delicious MSC recipes being cooked up in kitchens across the country and we want to know about them,” said Hannah Arcaro, UK MSC foodservice manager.
“We’re looking for an exciting and inspirational dish that tastes delicious. The winning recipe will be one that can be re-created by an experienced home cook in under an hour and use ingredients that are readily available to UK shoppers. That will mean the recipe can help to promote sustainably sourced seafood when dining out and at home.”
