Young’s unveils bites made from scampi, Alaska pollock

Young’s Foodservice has launched Popcorn Scampi Bites, made with sustainable, hand-peeled scampi from Great Britain and Ireland, along with wild Alaska pollock.

The fish mixture is wrapped in crispy breadcrumbs and can be served with sauces such as zesty lemon and herb aioli or tartar, Young’s Foodservice said in a press release.

“The new Popcorn Scampi Bites tap into snacking and sharing trends that are ideal for restaurant, pub, and university menus,” Young’s said. The bites take just a few minutes to bake or deep fry from frozen.

They also contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. The new product is sold in cases of five, 1 kilogram bags.

“We’ve been proudly serving Britain’s favorite Scampi since Young’s created it in 1946,” Young’s Foodservice’s Foodservice Director Adrian Greaves said.

“This new format is perfect for any occasion, either as a delicious main meal or as the perfect sharing platter. Quick and convenient for both the operator and consumer, they deliver a contemporary and moreish take on a classic,” Greaves added.
