Phillips Introduces New Crab Crunchers

""

Baltimore, MD, August 23, 2010 – Leading the seafood evolution, Phillips Foods, Inc. proudly introduces new Crab Crunchers™ to help operators bring crab meat to their menu. A richly flavored crab filling coated with a seasoned crunchy breading, Phillips Crab Crunchers are available in three on-trend, popular flavor varieties:

  • Pretzel Crusted Crab Crunchers
    A crunchy coating of pretzels create a crisp shell around a zesty seasoned mix of crab meat, honey and whole grain mustards, and pretzel crumbs. Pairs well with a spicy Creole mustard or sweet honey mustard dipping sauce.
  • Southwest Tortilla Crab Crunchers
    Crusted corn tortillas surround a soft, creamy filling that blends crab meat with corn and
    honey chipotle seasonings. Matches great with a chunky tomato salsa or tangy salsa verde.
  • Buffalo Bleu Crab Crunchers
    A tangy buffalo flavored breading coats a rich and spicy interior of crab meat, blue cheese, buffalo flavorings and hot sauce. Seasoned ranch sauce or decadent blue cheese dressing would be a tasty accompaniment.

New Crab Crunchers are specially formulated to retain perfectly textured crunch after baking or frying from frozen in minutes due to their innovative breading process. An affordable way to menu premium seafood, Phillips Crab Crunchers offer a platform for creative presentation such as being threaded on a bamboo stick and paired with a signature sauce. With menu versatility, Crab Crunchers can be served as an appetizer, on a tasting plate, as part of a bar menu, or in a catering and buffet setting. Delivering portion control and laborsaving benefits, new one ounce Crab Crunchers are available with four 2 lb. bags per case.
