Salisbury, MD (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
Handy introduces its new Shrimp & Grits cakes which offer a new twist on a southern classic and capture the popularity of upscale comfort foods.
These cakes are a part of Handy’s new Gastropub Collection of social seafood offering small plates and sharables. The 2 oz. cakes are perfect for appetizers, upscale bar food and add-ons. With the rich creamy texture of grits combined with shrimp and cheddar cheese, there is just enough heat to tickle your taste buds. Restaurants will enjoy the variety that this will add to their seafood offerings as well as the profits this will bring especially when paired with wine, beer or cocktails.
“These Shrimp & Grits Cakes are designed to give restaurants the opportunity to jump on this trend of social sharing and comfort foods without the labor or waste in doing it themselves,” according to Handy’s Executive Chef Nikki Trzeciak. “They look homemade (back-of-the-house) because they are handmade using fresh ingredients. Many chefs have found that people love seeing shrimp and grits on the menu; but behind the scenes, this comfort food can be tricky to make.”
When restaurants have a need for innovative products that support the growing demand for unique flavors, versatile plating options and a profitable bottom line, Handy’s Gastropub Collection of Social Seafood will fill the void. There is something for everyone in this collection that will keep diners coming back for more.
