Clearwater Seafoods, Canada, launched 100% natural and wild-caught Arctic Surf Clams in two new convenient formats to the North American marketplace, as well as the addition of Rock Crab Claws and several new Norway Lobster product formats.
"We're introducing several new wild-caught shellfish formats this year to meet growing demand from today's marketplace," says Rob O'Sullivan, vice president sales, Americas. "These innovative products offer convenience and cost-effective shellfish options for foodservice, processors and retailers across North America."
Widely popular among Japanese foodservice operators and Asian retail, Clearwater's MSC-certified Arctic Surf Clams come in pre-cut and portioned sushi-ready slices that are pre-blanched, making them ready-to-eat once thawed. This convenient and ready-to-use clam format adds variety and visual appeal to any sushi or sashimi dish. Simply place a sushi-ready slice on rice or serve on its own sashimi style for the ultimate in convenience.
Wild Arctic Surf Canned Clams are packed in 100% pure, premium clam juice, adding visual appeal to any clam recipe or dish, especially soups and chowders. These Arctic Surf Clams originate from an MSC-certified fishery, and are available year-round.
Rock Crab Claws are sweet and full with delicate white meat, offering a true shellfish delicacy. Wild-caught from the cold, clear waters surrounding the United Kingdom, Rock Crab Claws are an ideal sustainable menu option, originating from a well-managed and healthy fishery. Available in a pre-cooked frozen format, Rock Crab Claws are best served cold or gently warmed by steaming or poaching in salted water for two minutes.
Norway Lobster originates from the cold, clear waters surrounding the United Kingdom. This Scottish delicacy is now available in a variety of different formats, including shell-on tails, hand-peeled, deveined shell-off tails and tail clusters, ideal for seafood pasta dishes, soups, chowders and as a protein topper.
