March is National Frozen Food month and here at Heartland Catfish Company, we love a reason to celebrate our frozen products. When it comes to grocery shopping for your family, frozen food and its benefits can easily be forgotten. Compared to fresh food, frozen food can be misconceived as having less nutrients or containing added preservatives. It is important to educate yourself on the benefits of frozen food, so you can make healthy, educated decisions in the grocery store.
This month, we are looking at all the ways our frozen products can make a difference in our day to day lives. Frozen catfish is less likely to contain bacteria than fresh catfish and it is packed with just as many nutrients. Not only does frozen catfish have healthy benefits, but it also has preparation benefits as well. Cooking with frozen catfish is an easy and economical way to incorporate healthy seafood into your family dinner.
Looking for more than just frozen fillets? We also offer frozen nuggets and hushpuppies. Our frozen products are individually quick frozen in a matter of minutes to preserve freshness and ensure a superior taste and texture.
How does this process work? Great Question! We can freeze all our production every day in company-owned storage freezers. In fact, we have the largest in-house storage capacity in the industry, at more than 2,000,000 pounds. In less than 30 minutes, our live catfish are turned to product to ensure quality and freshness.
We are celebrating Frozen Food month by providing you with a new recipe that will satisfy your families’ dinner needs. With minimal ingredients including four Heartland Frozen Catfish Fillets, this Refreshing Pan-Seared Catfish with Pomegranate Salsa is the perfect dish to transition to spring. Celebrate Frozen Food month with us by heading over to your local grocery store and asking for our frozen products.
