SECAUCUS, New Jersey, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Goya Foods, the largest
Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, once again commemorates
Hispanic Heritage Month with five new recipes, bringing the list to ten
delicious meals that blend together flavors from Spain, the Caribbean, Mexico
and Central and South America. Long recognized as a leader in Latin American
food, condiments and culinary tradition, Goya distributes over 1,600 authentic
products throughout the United States and Europe.
"It is exciting to celebrate our diverse heritage through the blending of
such unique flavors," said Fernando Desa, Goya's Executive Chef and Product
Development Manager. Chef Desa created the recipes using Goya products
representing seven of the 21 countries that make up Latin America.
"At Goya, we take pride in being the brand that brings the traditional
taste of home to many of our consumers," says Joseph Perez, Senior Vice
President at Goya Foods, "and we also enjoy giving them creative alternatives
to expand their cooking experience."
All recipes can be found at www.goya.com. The five new recipes include:
Pan Seared Salmon over Manchego Funche topped with Cilantro Cream and
dressed with Pico de Gallo - This dish merges a popular Spanish cheese with
the traditional Puerto Rican-style polenta, accentuated with Mexican flavors.
Pan Seared Tilapia over Cuban Tamal, topped with Alcaparrado Coulis and
served with Mexican Rice - A new twist on a traditional favorite, this
delightful seafood recipe is a blend of robust and tasty Cuban and Mexican
sides topped with flavorful Spanish olives and capers.
Cuban Style Shredded Beef over Spanish omelet topped with a Jalapeno Aioli
- This recipe brings together venerable traditions: Cuba's succulent Ropa
Vieja served over a Spanish-style potato omelet and topped with delicious
Stuffed Plantain with Reina Pepiada and Nopalito Salad - Representing
three regions of Latin America, this recipe combines Puerto Rican plantains, a
Venezuelan chicken filling and serves a traditional Mexican salad alongside.
Grilled Shrimp over Salvadorian Curtido served with Andean Potatoes - Not
your basic cole slaw, the Salvadorian curtido provides a nice flavorful finish
to this seafood favorite. A side dish of Peruvian potatoes ala huancaina
adorned with a dollop of Mexican Pico de Gallo completes the experience.
