Seafood Week opportunities pay dividends
Promoting a varied range of fish and seafood specials will encourage customers to eat out during Seafood Week, says Direct Seafoods as Seafood Week 2019, commences from the 4 - 11 October.
The celebratory week organised by Seafish UK puts a focus on the variety of species available to enjoy and to support this, Direct Seafoods has expanded their range of recipes and resources available free to chefs on its website.
"Encouraging customers to enjoy a seafood dish they haven't tried before doesn't simply help to boost sales at a time when the eating-out market is feeling the pinch, it also helps to ensure that our fisheries have a long-term, sustainable future," said Natalie Hudd, director of sales for Direct Seafoods.
Direct Seafoods has added recipes online for starters and main dishes featuring a wide choice of fish and seafood including grilled whole plaice with brown shrimp and samphire butter; pan fried hake with a crab and prawn croquette and a saffron and mussel sauce; and mussels with rose harissa and chorizo with a white wine and lime broth.
