New York-based importer Harbor Seafood has been diligently building out its More Please product line made up of “Comfort food with a seafood twist.”

The line’s major entries, which include Seafood Pot Pie, Roasted Red Pepper Crab Queso, and Jalapeno Shrimp Queso, were highlighted in this year’s New Product Showcase at Seafood Expo North America. 

Handmade using 100 percent real crab, shrimp, and scallops in the United States, Harbor Seafood’s More Please Seafood Pot Pie is composed with authentic seafood ingredients that are mixed with vegetables and creamy Alfredo sauce.

Harbor’s soul food, value-added portfolio intensifies with its Roasted Red Pepper Crab Queso, which is “creamy, cheesy, and full of flavor,” the company said, and is ideal for entertaining. It is made with real blue swimming crabmeat that is blended with the queso for a complete, rich flavor profile.

The Jalapeno Shrimp Queso product combines Harbor Seafood’s two favorite things, “comfort food and seafood,” to deliver a carefully crafted and unique dining experience, the company explained. “A classic queso that packs a punch,” the offering includes chunks of shrimp and a kick of jalapeno.

Additional products included in Harbor’s More Please range are Spicy Shrimp Dip, Spinach & Artichoke Shrimp Dip, Southwest Style Crawfish Dip, Green Beans & Shrimp, and Scallop & Corn Casserole. The dips in the line can simply be heated and served, while items like the Scallop & Corn Casserole can be grilled or baked. They each play to consumer preferences for quick, quality seafood options. 

Founded in 1975, Harbor Seafood has long been setting the standard in product quality, service, and customer satisfaction, according to its website. It maintains these standards “by utilizing a hands-on approach of procuring seafood direct from the source with a focus on efficient and environmentally safe practices,” the company said. Oyster Bay, Clearly Seafood, More Please, and Price Fighter Seafood are all brands under Harbor’s umbrella. 

The company is a member of the National Fisheries Institute’s Crab Council, which funds fishery improvement projects in Southeast Asia, in large part through assessments placed on the pounds of blue swimming crab imported by its members. Stewardship to the ocean and striving to source and deliver the highest quality seafood through efficient, environmentally safe practices are integral aspects of Harbor’s business and innovation strategies, its website mission states.
