Lyons Seafoods launches award winning 'ready to cook' range for foodservice market.

Classic dishes have been given a modern twist for foodservice market after European award winner Lyons Seafoods launched its new 'Ready to Cook' range with two classic seafood dishes.

Using only top quality ingredients to produce striking menu options, chefs will appreciate the benefits of convenience, speed of preparation and service as well the flexibility of menu uses.

The first product in the range is a King Prawn & Mussel Mariniere which scooped the highly prestigious Prix d'Elite 'Best Convenience' Award at The European Seafood Exposition in Brussels.

It features a combination of large, succulent, easy-peel farmed warm water king prawns and Irish rope-grown mussels in a classic creamy Mariniere sauce featuring delicate garlic, onion, and dry white wine flavours.

Ideal as a starter, or a light meal with the addition of crusty French bread or a grilled crouton, the flavoursome Mariniere dish is also delicious when accompanied by 'frites'. The product comes in an individually vacuum packed 450g pouch ensuring excellent portion control, minimal preparation and zero wastage, and is microwaveable from frozen in minutes providing great speed of service.

The second recipe variety is the Salmon & King Prawn Florentine. This features a farmed salmon fillet filled with three succulent king prawns, velvety spinach and basil pesto--combining four popular menu staples to produce a modern classic.

The Salmon Florentine can be served with potatoes dauphinoise and French beans for a classic meal, new potatoes with spring greens for a fresh, seasonal menu, or for those looking to keep with its Italian heritage, it can even be served on a bed of freshly made tagliatelle with a crispy garden salad. The dish can be personalised with very little effort.

Each 185g portion is individually vacuum packed to lock in freshness and minimise kitchen wastage. Once fully defrosted the Florentine requires just 12 minutes in a hot (180 C) oven or can even be steamed within its packaging if oven space is at a premium.

Paul Murray, foodservice director at Lyons Seafoods, said: "Our new 'Ready to Cook' range is designed to provide restaurants and pubs with a convenient added value proposition that will be perceived by their customers as a premium menu offering. It is an easy way for chefs to get more seafood on to the menu and encourage consumers to try something different."
