Handy Seafood, America’s oldest seafood processor, is excited for the launch of two new products—Agedama-Style Crispy Tempura Shrimp for Foodservice and Seafood & Sauce for Retail. Both products are debuting at the Seafood Expo North America in March and will be featured in the New Products Showcase. Each item is unique for Handy and continues to expand Handy’s quality seafood product offerings.
“The Agedama-Style Shrimp are coated in bits of fried Agedama batter that gives the product a delicious crunch in every bite,” said Randy Spencer, Vice President of Foodservice at Handy Seafood. The unique texture will delight guests and pairs well with a Sweet Chili Sauce for an appetizer or as an add-on to salads or entrees.
“Our Seafood & Sauce gives the home consumer a quick, easy and absolutely delightful seafood dinner for 2. It cooks in 6 minutes and you can add your favorite pasta to complete the meal,” said Tom Quinn, Vice President of Retail Sales. These two items will also be featured on sampling menus at Handy’s restaurant-style booth, number 823.
