The Seafood Steamer is easy. It’s a new way for all Canadians to enjoy perfectly cooked seafood in just minutes. What’s the secret? Our convenient oven-safe bag that’s inspired by the classic French cooking method en papillote, which is used to steam fish in a parchment paper pouch. Our Seafood Steamer takes the guesswork and mess out of once-complicated seafood, and the result is deliciously moist and tender seafood cooked at home, every time.
The Seafood Steamer is as easy as 1, 2, 3…
1. Choose your seafood and butter or seasoning.
Visit the seafood counter at your local Sobeys and choose your favourite fish or seafood. Pair your selection with a seasoned butter – choose from Salted, Lemon & Dill, or Garlic & Parsley. Or try one of our dry seasonings, including Honey Dijon, Moroccan, Mediterranean, and Maple Chipotle. See your local Sobeys for all butter and seasoning flavours.
2. We bag it, then seal it up for you to take home.
Once you’ve made your selection, our seafood experts will seal it up and send you home with seafood that’s prepped and ready to cook in the oven-safe Seafood Steamer bag. With all the mess and cooking confusion taken care of, enjoying seafood has never been so easy.
3. Just cook the bag.
At home, all you have to do is cook the bag in the oven. No mess, no prep. Just follow the cooking instructions on the back of the bag, and once cooked, remove it from the bag and enjoy flavourful and perfectly cooked seafood.
We’ve taken the worry out of trying new seafood. There’s an ocean of seafood waiting to be discovered, and now it’s easier than ever. Choose your favourite fish fillets, or try something new and unfamiliar. The Seafood Steamer works with almost any fish and seafood. Try it with salmon, trout, barramundi, mackerel, herring, whiting, snapper, shrimp, mussels and more! Visit your local Sobeys to see what’s available this week.
It’s easy to please everyone. It’s easy to please everyone. Sometimes one fish doesn’t fit all, but that’s the benefit of the Seafood Steamer. You can choose different fish fillets or seafood because they’re all packed separately. Take customization one step further with the butters and seasonings – mix and match according to individual preferences, or try a different combo for a new flavour adventure.
Not only is the Seafood Steamer easy and delicious, but it’s convenient too. Most cuts take less than 20 minutes to cook in the oven – that makes it a fast dinner solution on busy weeknights. Plus, the fishy smells are locked inside the bag, making it a great lunch option for the office. Paired with a simple salad or served over a bed of rice, a wholesome meal is just minutes away.
