King Prawn is the universal nickname for Seamark’s founder and CEO Iqbal Ahmed OBE. In 40 years, his firm has achieved a worldwide reach and is one of the great success stories in the world of fish processing. Seamark produces more than 80 tonnes of high quality raw product a week in the UK alone with group sales increasing by 10 per cent in 2017 to US $210 million.Under various own brands you’ll find their produce in leading supermarkets. Their plant also produces samosas, spring rolls, parathas and other finger foods.
Now, after extensive product-testing, comes this enticing launch into ready-to-cook, based around farmed prawns.
The Stir Fry is a wok-ready mixture of peeled king prawns and green beans, red peppers, sweetcorn, water chestnuts, mushrooms, beansprouts and bamboo shoots. Colourful and crunchy, it is quick and easy to prepare with a condiment of your choice, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil or sriracha. The Pak Choi is an equally delicious green dream of dish, here the prawns combined with sugar snap peas, spinach, soy beans and pak choi. Finally, the Quinoa is ‘clean eating’ on a plate yet also quite substantial. That’s down to having quinoa, described as the complete protein, and brown rice as a base for curly kale, leek tomatoes, red onion and aromatic spices. All dishes are easy to cook within eight minutes.
