Now seafood is simple with our new Seafood Steamer. Choose your favourite fish or seafood and pair it with one of three seasoned butters. Then all you have to do is cook the bag for delicious, perfectly cooked seafood without the prep or mess.

The Seafood Steamer is great cooked and paired with a simple salad or served over a bed of rice, but its versatility also makes it a convenient ingredient for many other dishes. There’s an ocean of possibilities, but if you need some inspiration, we’ve got 7 delicious ways to use the Seafood Steamer tonight!


    1. 1. Steamed Cod with Mushrooms & Swiss Chard: This simple recipe calls for Swiss chard but but can be made with your choice of greens, like kale or spinach. The secret flavour-booster? The oil from the sun-dried tomatoes. It’s used to sauté the cremini mushrooms before they’re layered on top of the delicious garlic- and parsley-infused cod that has been gently poached in our Seafood Steamer. Finish with a drizzle of savoury melted garlic-parsley butter reserved from the Seafood Steamer.


    1. 2. Open-Face Salmon Dinner Sandwiches: This recipe is fast and filling – the perfect combo for busy weeknights. Make this 20-minute dish by cooking the savoury garlic-parsley salmon in the Seafood Steamer. Mix salmon with capers, grape tomatoes and feta cheese in a large bowl. Top slices of rye bread with the mixture and enjoy with a green salad on the side.


    1. 3. Fish Tacos with Cucumber-Apple Salsa: Homemade tacos are always a hit. Make your own salsa using red-skinned apples, English cucumber, red onion and lime juice. Serve the salsa with the garlic-parsley haddock Seafood Steamer on whole wheat tortillas. To make your salsa sweeter, add a pinch of sugar or honey; to spice it up, add a finely chopped red chili pepper to the mix.


    1. 4. Salmon with Chickpeas & Spinach Sauté: Canned chickpeas and fresh baby spinach form the base of this easy meal that’s on the table in less than 20 minutes. Top the chickpea-spinach sauté with a piece of lemon- and dill-infused salmon for an elegant-yet-simple seafood entrée. Love cheese? Stir crumbled feta into the spinach-chickpea mixture to taste.


    1. 5. Scallop Fettuccine Alfredo: Put a new spin on an old favourite. Butter, Parmesan cheese and fresh lemon zest create a sauce that’s made extra silky with the addition of reserved salt water from the pasta. Toss the mixture well and top each serving with rich garlic-parsley bay scallops and grated Parmesan before serving. Save time by cooking the Bay Scallops Seafood Steamer as the fettuccine is boiling. Delizioso!


    1. 6. Trout with Creamy Parsnip Mash: Sweet parsnips and creamy Yukon Gold potatoes are blended with garlic for a rich mash that makes the perfect bed for the dill- and lemon-flavoured trout cooked in the Seafood Steamer. Topped with steamed Swiss chard, this recipe is worthy of sit-down dinner status. For a touch of warmth, add a pinch of ground nutmeg to the vegetable purée.


    1. 7. Warm Salmon & Roasted Vegetable Salad This salad is hearty and simple to pull together. Shallots, carrots, and radishes are roasted until lightly golden and tender. Reserve melted butter and juices from the garlic-parsley salmon Seafood Steamer pouch and use to make a warm vinaigrette mixed with maple syrup and grainy mustard. Toss vinaigrette with roasted veggies and flake salmon in large pieces overtop. Add some crunch with a sprinkle of toasted walnuts.
