The below highlights some of this year’s new products:
Frozen Prepared Greenland Halibut Steak, Koji Flavour (Yen & Friends Enterprise Company Limited) This delicate, flakey textured Greenland halibut steak is subtly infused with the delicious flavours of Koji, a traditional Japanese sauce made from a natural fermentation of rice yeast, water and salt. Easy to cook, the fish is frozen to preserve the freshness of the halibut with a Koji infusion that offers a distinctive Asian flair.
Frozen Australian Greenlip Abalone Meat “Abalone King”
The Southern Australian coastline provides the perfect growing environment for these wild-caught abalone. Succulent and tasty, the abalone develops its flavour from the cold waters off these shores where the salt content is high, the water movement frequent and the supply of seaweed healthy.
A gourmet ingredient, this product is obtained from ink extracted from the natural bags of the cuttlefish. Combined with water, salt and a thickening agent that together undergo a thermal treatment, the ink adds depth and drama to most notably rice and pasta dishes by enhancing the seafood flavoring and infusing the coloring.
La Déesse Blanche
This kind of oyster has a thick and crunchy meat that fills your mouth with a perfect balance between sweetness and salinity. It is characterized in taste by the territory in which oysters are cultivated, in Utah Beach, France.
Kaluga Sturgeon Caviar
(Chunan Qiandaohu Xunlong Import and Export Company Limited) Originating from the wild sturgeons of Heilongjiang province in China, this medium to small grain-sized caviar is derived from the roe of Kaluga that has been artificially cultivated for 11 to 15 years. Rich and distinct in taste, its colour varies from shades of pearl grey to greyish black with a finish that is smooth and buttery.
Hoki Fillets FIAB
Certified by the Marine Stewardship Council as sustainable seafood, these Talley’s hoki fillets are an excellent source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. Versatile to most methods of cooking, the hoki which live at depths of 300-900 metres off the pristine waters of New Zealand, flake easily when cooked and are ideal for a wide range of recipes.
Organic Blue Shrimp
Blue Shrimp is a unique species cultured and processed in a pollution-free country. It has a distinct color and great texture and is free from antibiotics, preservatives, harmful bacteria and heavy metals.
The yaki sushi nori roasted seaweed with its trademark green colour is perfect for sushi and family curing, as well as for food processing, rice balls or served as a condiment.
