  • Spicy Shrimp Romesco
  • Lemon Shrimp with Garlic & Herbs
  • Salmon with Garden Pesto
  • Salmon with Garlicky Black Pepper & Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Tilapia with Lemon, Pepper & Herbs
  • Tilapia with Garlic & Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Each premium fish fillet comes with its own baking parchment, a special uncoated parchment paper to seal in flavor and juices. The shrimp sauté quickly on the stovetop with seasoning medallions. All Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ entrées go from freezer to table in 20 minutes or less. “We know consumers aspire to live healthy lifestyles while constantly seeking delicious meals that are easy to prepare,” said Chris Lischewski, president and CEO of Bumble Bee. “Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ fulfills an unmet need for great tasting seafood with the nutritional benefits of fish, but without the fuss and fear of preparation and a long list of ingredients.

According to General Manager of Bumble Bee Frozen Foods Suzanne Stites, Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ Premium Fresh Frozen is about “the joy of good food.  Our research confirmed that consumers are looking for high-quality seafood that tastes fresh and delicious.” She added, “We all know we should eat more fish – and now you’ll want to because it’s so easy and so delicious. We’re proud of the products’ clean label with all-natural ingredients you’d use yourself and the quality is absolutely delicious. We haven’t wasted a minute of the almost two years it’s taken to create this line. It’s guest worthy and wine worthy. It’s truly new to the category.”

Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ Premium Fresh Frozen is flash frozen at below zero temperatures and vacuum packed for protection. The delicate flavor of seafood is enhanced only with high-quality all-­­natural ingredients. Each product boasts a clean label, listing a few familiar and easy to pronounce ingredients.

Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ Premium Fresh Frozen initially is available in the Northeast starting right here in Washington D.C. at Giant Food/Carlisle, Wegmans, Giant Food/Landover and ShopRite stores, making delicious food available to hurried, hungry readers in 20 minutes or less. The suggested retail price (SRP) is recipe specific, ranging between $8.99 and $9.99.

I love seafood and am only familiar with Bumble Bee in the canned tuna form. So I was excited to hear about their new line of gourment frozen seafood options. I will definitely look for it next time I'm at the grocery store.  Try some today!
