Greenland Seafood expands range with traditional vegetable fish dishes
Greenland Seafood is joining in the new trend of old-style, traditional vegetables with their latest line of products.
The company recently added three new dishes featuring Alaska Pollock fillets topped with three different kinds of vegetables: Kale, savoy cabbage, and pumpkin, tomato and ginger. Their new pumpkin-based topping earned them a spot in the finals at Seafood Expo Global’s Seafood Excellence Awards.
“It’s based on the major trends today towards old vegetables in different markets, such as the German and French markets,” said Jehan Emmanuelle, marketing manager for Greenland Seafood.
Greenland Seafood was showcasing the products at Seafood Expo Global, giving a look at how the new product uses old-style recipes.
“There are some recipes oriented towards cabbage, because it’s really popular in Germany and eastern countries,” said Emmanuelle. “Consumers want to go back to traditional vegetables.”
The product is roughly 55 percent fish, contained in a 400 gram packet featuring an aluminum or cardboard tray. The product is intended to be oven cooked.
“Some of these vegetables had been cast aside for decades and their return to our plates is not only a boon for traditionalists, but also a whole new taste experience for gourmets,” wrote Greenland Seafood in a press release on the new line. “While trends come and go, traditional vegetables and old-fashioned varieties are currently providing an authentic taste that is proving very popular.”
