US branded seafood group Bumble Bee Foods has launched a range of “premium” frozen seafood products.

The company said the new Bumble Bee SuperFresh line is produced using fish that is cleaned, cut and frozen “within hours” of being caught. The ready to cook dishes are then “chef prepared”, the company added.

The line includes: 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.

The line is made using “all-natural” ingredients, it is high in protein and gluten free, Bumble Bee emphasised.

SuperFresh is initially available in the northeastern US, with planned national availability “in the future”, the company said. The suggested retail price is recipe specific, ranging between $8.99 and $9.99.
