From Source to Plate
At Louis Kemp we guarantee that you will get the highest quality seafood because unlike most other seafood companies, we actually catch our own fish. Being part of the largest family owned vertically-integrated seafood company in North America, we are able to control the product every step of the way and we take great pride in every product we make. Our role as protectors of the source is what keeps us motivated to keep on fishing, it’s what we have always done, and if we keep doing it right, it’s what we will always do.
What is Surimi?
Surimi seafood is real seafood made with Wild Alaskan Pollock, a mild whitefish related to cod, which is flavored with crab or lobster. To make surimi seafood, Wild Alaskan Pollock is finely minced and then blended with other ingredients such as starch, salt, natural crab meat, and egg white. It is then formed, cooked and cut into the various shapes and styles you find at your local grocery store.
Surimi seafood is not “fake” or “artificial”
The reason for this misconception is that surimi is often formed and colored to look like crab, and the resulting product is commonly referred to as “imitation crab.” Because of the negative association with the word “imitation” in the food world, people assume surimi is a chemical concoction instead of a real seafood. They’re wrong.
