As a busy Mom, I know how hard it is to find time to make a meal each night. I am always looking for great ideas for recipes that are easy and can be prepared in advance or on a whim. As you may know, I work full time outside of the home and have a husband, 13 month old and 2 black labs. In addition to that, I have this blog which I truly love. I also recently finished my Master’s degree which gives me a little more time in the evenings with my beautiful family. Bumble Bee had that in mind when they created their new SuperFresh packs of seafood that are available in your grocer’s seafood freezers. These packs are ready to go, no thawing needed. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® is a complete line of naturally-seasoned, restaurant quality, “fish-forward” prepared seafood solutions for the home. It raises the bar for what seafood lovers can expect from frozen food!
Bumble Bee SuperFresh® offers unparalleled quality. Our seafood is “fish forward” – we have nothing to hide under heavy breading, sauces, or a long list of unpronounceable ingredients. Our recipes complement the amazing protein that we start with to bring out the best of the seafood.
We were sent a few packs of the Salmon with Garden Pesto variety to try out. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garden Pesto is richly satisfying with Parmesan cheese, basil, almonds and a touch of garlic. I love that these packs come freezer sealed and ready to go – for this box, there were 2 salmon filets inside with some brown parchment paper. I simply pre-heated the oven, opened the pack and wrapped it in the parchment paper.
Then, I popped it in the oven for 20 minutes or so and voila – a salmon filet is ready to go. The SuperFresh packs come pre-seasoned and ready to go so I didn’t have to add anything to this salmon filet- awesome! I am a huge fan of pesto so it was an added bonus that these came packed with pesto sauce! The Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garden Pesto is so flavorful and has no preservatives and has all natural ingredients. Since they are ready to cook, I knew that I didn’t necessarily need to do anything extravagant to get a good flavor, so I decided that I would just leave it the way it is and serve it up with a few common items that we have in our home.
Salmon is one of my favorite seafood items so as it was cooking, my whole house was smelling delicious! When it was ready, I pulled it out of the oven and cut open the parchment bag that each filet was in. The pesto sauce was right on the salmon filet and the filet was ready to go. These packs make it easy for me as a busy Mom to prepare dinner on a whim. I try, very hard, to have meals ready to go but that isn’t always possible. Sometimes we forget to take something out of the freezer before we head to work, so that means that when we get home we need something quick. We try to eat at home as much as possible as it is great family time and saves us money. When I am in those types of binds, I am thankful for these easy to use packages from Bumble Bee. I can have dinner made in 30 minutes without scrambling.
Bumble Bee has other varieties of seafood if you’re not a fan of the salmon. Be sure to check your local grocery store to see what they offer. These are found usually back by the seafood counter where you would find items like fish sticks and frozen shrimp. If you cannot find it there, check your other freezers or ask the seafood counter attendants. Bumble Bee also offers a variety of recipes for these packages on their website HERE. Grab a few different types and have them in your freezer so that you can prevent yourself from being stuck in a bind for dinner.
