A Live and Cooking! – 75th I-Day Special with Chef Akanksha Khatri
The beauty of selling fresh fish and seafood live every single morning is unmatched. Giving customers their comfort in choosing from a variety of freshest catches is what PescaLive aims to achieve. We bring the market to your living room!
And as a part of our Independence Day celebrations, we made our live more interesting with guest celebrity chef Akanksha Khatri in the studio! The former Master Chef Season 6 finalist teamed up with our host Gurpreet to sell our fresh fish, right from exotic lobsters, to live mud crabs (catch her holding on to one of them) and from the chef’s favorite Indian Salmon, better known as Rawas locally, to the massive Surmai. What makes our daily live market unique is giving customers exactly what they see. Does it get fresher than this? No it doesn’t.
Coming back to our special edition, the theme was centred around our larger campaign on the 75th year of Independence, #freedomtochoose. Pescafresh has over 150 products to choose from, with every variant vacuum packed and hygienically handled right from the time of its sourcing, till the time it reaches the customer’s door. A contest was also announced by Akanksha that gave customers a chance to choose their hamper, on answering what freedom to choose means to them.
If you missed the episode and the yummy Pink Salmon recipe Chef Akanksha made for all of us, don’t worry, for we have NOT a chicken curry (LOL), but a step by step break down of how to put together this quick and healthy dish.
