Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), hosted a seafood cookery workshop on Wednesday, 11th February, aimed at seafood retailers in the agency’s Seafood Development Centre (SDC) in Clonakilty, Co. Cork.
BIM’s graduate New Product Development Chef, Derrick Rose, treated the attending companies to an extensive cookery demonstration with step by step instructions on how to prepare a range of seafood dishes, including chowder, seafood fajitas and fish pie.
The aim of the workshop was to provide retailers with the knowledge to prepare ‘ready to eat’ seafood meals in their own premises to boost sales and attract new customers or simply to gain more knowledge in terms of seafood cookery to advise their customers.
Irish consumers are leading increasingly busy lifestyles and are looking for ready to eat seafood dishes from their local fishmonger or seafood counter. More and more seafood retailers are meeting this demand and providing a one stop shop with wet fish counters, marinades, crumbs and ‘ready to eat’ options for on the go lunches or family meals.
BIM will also be hosting another Seafood Cookery workshop for retailers in BIM’s Head Office in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin on the 14th April from 9.00am – 2.00pm. The cost is €50 per participant; this includes lunch and all recipes in electronic format for your business to use. Places are limited.
