“Sensory Fresh. Fresh like fresh,
but with the convenience of frozen”
Clean Seas Liquid Nitrogen Rapid Freezing is world’s best practice for freezing high value, premium seafood.
It all gets down to speed. To retain the optimum texture, the ice formation stage must be completed quickly. Commercial freezing typically takes 240 minutes to reach that stage, but Clean Seas’ new Liquid Nitrogen Rapid Freeze technology does it in around 17 minutes or 14 times faster! This greatly reduces the formation of ice crystals within and around the cell structure of the fish, which cause moisture loss (dry tasting fish), and a mushy soft feel to the meat.
Capturing the colour, aroma and flavour is achieved by reaching -35°C quickly. Which conventional freezing can’t do. Clean Seas Rapid Freezing reaches core temperature of -50°C to -70°C and surface temperature of -95°C
With the characteristic pinky white flesh and bright red bloodlines all there to see, you’ll find very little evidence the fish was ever frozen.
You’ll also find the fish has retained the wonderful salty smell of the sea, as if it had just been pulled from the Spencer Gulf.
The fish will be firm to the touch and hold both its shape and distinctive texture when you slice it.
Whether enjoyed in Sushi or Sashimi, or cooked in any of a thousand ways, Sensory Fresh delivers all the sensory pleasures that has made Spencer Gulf Hiramasa Kingfish the choice of Sushi masters and leading chefs around the world.
