Full Steam Ahead
Sea Star Seafood, one of the first seafood processors to embrace steam-cooking technology, has introduced the Beacon Light Steam Series line of microwavable seafoods. Employing an innovative venting pouch technology that steam-cooks frozen fillets in about five minutes, the Marlborough, Mass.-based company’s new line features seasoned fish fillets in three varieties: Lemon & Dill Atlantic Salmon, Garlic & Herb Mahi Mahi, and Tomato, Basil & Garlic Tilapia. A significant point of difference offered by the Beacon Light Steam Series is that the fillets are flavored with dry seasonings rather than soaked in a sauce or marinade. During cooking, the dry seasonings blend with the fish’s juices for a light taste that doesn’t overwhelm the natural fish flavor. Additionally, the products are flavored with salt-free seasonings, contain no added fats and are gluten-free. A 12-ounce package, which serves two, retails for a suggested $5.99 to $6.99.
