Sushi leader brings the crunch and spice just in time for Hatch green chile season to more than 1,000 national retailers
CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hissho Sushi, one of the largest sushi distributors in the U.S., has "rolled in" a new partner – The Hatch Chile Co. – for the launch of its new Crunchy Hatch Chile Chicken Roll. Starting July 25, the new roll will be available in more than 1,000 locations nationwide including grocery stores, hospitals and airports for a limited-time-only throughout the Hatch green chile harvest season.
Hissho Sushi, known for creating innovative and exciting sushi experiences and products, was inspired by the sweet, smoky flavors of Hatch green chiles and the opportunity to partner with a well-respected brand to create a roll fusing classic southwestern cuisine with traditional Japanese sushi.
The new roll features grilled chicken, cream cheese and creamy avocado wrapped in rice and nori and topped with a vibrant salsa of Hatch® green chiles, golden corn, red onion, chopped cilantro and crispy fried onions. A finishing drizzle of Japanese BBQ sauce, spicy mayo and sriracha bring sweet heat.
"We are thrilled to partner with the Hatch Chile Co., and to continue to bring our customers never-before-tasted, innovative flavors," said Dan Beem, CEO of Hissho Sushi. "Incorporating authentic Hatch chiles from New Mexico with our premium, hand-crafted sushi is truly a must-try fusion of flavors."
