Boiled-frozen shrimps are ready to eat after being defrosted.

The Honorable John S. Sloan, Ambassador of Canada to the Russian Federation has opened the event with the welcome speech. The Ambassador demonstrated the preparation of Glazed Canadian Shrimps with Fillet-Minion and described his own preferences of the Coldwater Shrimps.

Yuliya Chehonina, Dietitian, Specialist of the Scientific Research Institute of the Russian Medical Academy of Science, Consultant and Presenter of the “Give you the life” and “About the main thing” TV Projects shared with the event participants her suggestions on importance of the health benefits of Coldwater Shrimps as a part of the healthy diet.

Igor Kats, Brand-Chef and Owner of Apriori Restaurant Company, author of tasting shows, restaurants consultant on menu development, participant and presenter of many culinary TV-shows and radio-programs, organized the tasting show for the guests and cooked exquisite dishes with Coldwater Shrimps. According to Igor Kats, the Coldwater Shrimp is a very easy-to-use product which makes everyday menu and party dishes even more delicious. “Canadian Coldwater Shrimps have unique taste and texture that beneficially differ them from the large warmwater shrimps, they are conveniently ready to eat without any cooking, either alone or in salads” – mentioned Igor Kats and stated: “It is important not to boil cooked-frozen shrimps for the second time in order not to spoil the taste and texture of the product. It is recommended not to treat coldwater shrimps with excess heat treatment because of the same reason.”
