ALEXANDRIA, La. -- In time for Lent, March Madness and beyond, Krispy Krunchy Foods has rolled out two new fish and seafood products to its foodservice program.

Cajun Style Fish, meanwhile, is a 2.2-ounce fillet that is also pre-breaded and IQF.

Krispy Shrimp cooks in three minutes at 350 degrees, with a holding time of approximately one hour. A five-piece meal with french fries and a biscuit has a suggested retail price of $4.99 with a gross profit of 56%, while a 10-piece meal has a suggested price of $7.99 with a gross profit of 52%.

Cajun Style Fish meanwhile cooks in six minutes at 350 degrees, also with a one-hour holding time. A three-piece meal with fries and a biscuit has a suggested price of $5.99 with a gross profit of 53%. Showcasing both new items, a seafood platter containing two pieces of Cajun Style Fish, and five pieces of Krispy Shrimp with fries and a biscuit has a suggested price of $8.99 for a gross profit of 58%.
