Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s Launch New ParchmentBake Tilapia Fillets
PARSIPPANY, N.J. (February 22, 2012) --Mrs. Paul’s® and Van de Kamp’s®, portfolio brands of Pinnacle Foods Group, today announced the launch of new ParchmentBake™ tilapia fillets. The secret to Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s ParchmentBake fillets is the unique parchment bag that delicately bakes 100% whole tilapia fillets in a delicious sauce, locking in flavor and moisture.
The convenient ParchmentBake cooking process takes the guesswork out of preparing and serving delicious seafood with no MSG, no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. ParchmentBake fillets have less than 80 calories, 13 grams of protein and 0.5 grams of fat per serving.
“We learned that while consumers want to eat more seafood, they don’t always feel comfortable preparing fish at home,” says Lisa Barrette, senior marketing director of seafood at Pinnacle Foods Group. “Using the same parchment paper technique professional chefs use to bake fish perfectly, we created Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s ParchmentBake, allowing consumers to easily serve restaurant quality seafood at home, perfect every time.”
New Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s ParchmentBake tilapia fillets come lightly sauced in a variety of delicious flavors with two servings per package. Flavors include Classic Grilled Tilapia, Garlic Butter Tilapia, Roasted Garlic Tilapia and Lemon Pepper Tilapia. Consumers can find Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s ParchmentBake at grocery stores nationwide.

About Mrs. Paul’s Seafood
The Mrs. Paul’s® Seafood story began in 1946 when Philadelphia power plant worker Edward Piszek started selling deviled crab cakes to earn extra money while his plant was on strike. Due to great success, Piszek and his friend, John Paul started a frozen seafood business. They named the business “Mrs. Paul's Kitchens” after John's mother (originally naming the brand Mrs. Paul’s Kitchen). Today, Mrs. Paul’s Seafood is a beloved brand that provides the original crab cakes, as well as fish fillets and crunchy fish sticks all made from 100% whole white fish fillet, offering great-tasting and convenient seafood.
