We’re late. Again. To Haley’s dance class. We race in, I throw my bag down on the ground, push her into the studio, and collapse into a chair. One of the moms looks at me and says, “Yep.” So we get to chatting about how our calendars are a hot mess, we can’t keep our days straight, and how exhausted we are.
10 minutes later, another mom races into the waiting room, frazzled. We look at her and say, “Yep.”
Seriously. May and June are such a craaaazy time of year when you have little kids. T-Ball games, dance recital, endless school activities, minimum days, art projects, and volunteering. Plus, oh right, work!
Cooking, as much as I love it…as much as it runs through my veins…it becomes such an effort. I’m ashamed to admit how much we ate out last month. Not healthy and not good for our wallet.
So when Bumble Bee® asked if I wanted to try out their new Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ Premium seafood, which is fresh-frozen and pre-seasoned ready to go, I didn’t even need to think about it. I practically begged them!
Their new Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ premium seafood entrees include six varieties to choose from, four fish and two shrimp. They contain all-natural ingredients (no chemicals, preservatives or mystery ingredients) and go from freezer to prepared in 20 minutes or less. Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ seafood is also sourced from sustainable aquaculture farms that are certified by third-party certifying organizations.
The only time I buy fish fresh, is if I’m making it that same day. But since I always menu plan, frozen usually makes more sense. I also usually prepare my own sauces, but it was a blessing to have this all taken care of for me with the Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ line.
My kids love pesto on pasta, so the Salmon with Garden Pesto was a no brainer. We also tried the Spicy Shrimp Romesco. Both were delicious, moist, full of flavor, and tasted freshly made.
I served the salmon with a side of edamame (soy beans), but asparagus or broccoli would work well with it also. And you can’t go wrong with my favorite rice pilaf!
If you’re looking for a complete meal, including dessert, and honestly, why wouldn’t you? ;-)…keep in mind that salmon is rich and filling. So a good ending would be something light, like a fruit-based mousse or icy granita. I’m partial to these Caramel Apple Grapes.
Bumble Bee® wants you to experience the joy of good food–whether that means it’s delicious taste or that it’s sustainably produced. And so do I!
Bumble Bee SuperFresh™ gave me free product and said they’d pay me to blog about it IF I liked it. And I do!
