Top 5 hot restaurant seafood trends
1.) Crab-topped fish dishes
Restaurants are topping all types of fish fillets – including redfish, tilapia and ahi tuna – with crab. This seafood-on-seafood trend follows the meat-on-meat trend as well as the more innovative surf-and-turf combos of late,” said Lizzy Freier, managing editor of menu analysis at Technomic. In addition, crab provides a “richness to a lot of lighter fish dishes,” Freier said. As part of its annual Crabfest promotion, Red Lobster is offering jumbo lump crab cakes and crab-topped salmon.
