This review is a little different. It’s a two-fer post where we’ll be talking about two very different but equally convenient products that will make your meals and parties much easier to provide food for. Typically I just buy some chips at the store and call it a day. I don’t even put the chips in the bowl – I let people eat out of the bag. Sure, it’s no the most gourmet option, but it saves me one dish to wash. It’s just that appetizers aren’t exactly my forte. I’m still learning to cook real dinners, let alone miniature sized ones for large groups. With SeaPak and Farm Rich products, I can quickly and easily serve gourmet treats to my guests.
About Farm Rich
Farm Rich® products have been setting the standard for delicious, easy-to-prepare food the whole family loves.
Farm Rich® foods taste like nothing else because they’re made like nothing else – with 100% real ingredients like real cheese, high-quality meats and fresh vegetables. Our snacks, appetizers, and breakfast foods are quick-frozen and carefully packaged so busy families can prepare great tasting food within minutes.
Shrimp are tricky to cook. At least that’s what I hear. I’ve yet to be brave enough to cook shrimp. Fortunately SeaPak makes it easy to cook up and to serve shrimp for appetizers or even for dinner. They have a wide variety of shrimp and seafood products that quickly and easily go from freezer to oven to tummies, including Popcorn Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi, and Herb Butter Salmon.
I cooked up their Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp and their Tempura Shrimp. The most amazing thing to me was how crispy the shrimp were out of the oven…and I cooked them in a toaster oven, even! The perfect crispiness without overcooking the shrimp. The shrimp were firm and didn’t taste fishy at all. And if you have a mental issue about eating shrimp poop, like I do, then never fear! These SeaPak shrimp were de-veined! WAHOO!
The SeaPak Tempura Shrimp cooked up nice and crispy with a delicious tempura breading. It came with a sauce which is kind of like a sweet & sour with a very, very mild spiciness and was quite tasty. The Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp tasted like a restaurant quality fried shrimp. Again, the breading came out nice and crispy – as if it had just come out of the fryer without any of the oiliness. I didn’t have any cocktail sauce but instead enjoyed them with ketchup. So yummy. Wouldn’t be surprised one bit if some of these restaurants actually stocked and served these shrimp.
Once you’ve established that you really are gourmet by serving perfectly cooked shrimp, you can also tote out some freshly cooked Farm Rich Mini Quesadillas. Talk about making it easy to serve finger foods. Farm Rich also has a wide variety of appetizers and easy-to-prepare snacks, including Min Philly Cheese Steak, Mozzarella Bites, and Meatballs.
We prepared the Farm Rich Mini Quesadilla slices. The Farm Rich Mini Quesadillas are premade miniature slices of stuffed crust that are baked with mozzarella, cheddar and monterey jack cheeses and white meat chicken. Since these are stuffed crusts, the outer part is a little thicker than a tortilla, but has a nice grilled flavor to it when cooked. These also have a nice spicy kick to them. Nothing too strong, just a lingering hotness. When you get that perfect bite of crispy crust, plus cheese, plus the chicken….yum.
If you need to serve some tasty snacks and appetizers at your next party, consider SeaPak seafood products and Farm Rich Snacks and Appetizers. There are so many delicious choices to choose from that are easy to prepare and even easier to eat. Farm Rich and SeaPak are available in stores nationwide.
