Creative Ways To Reduce Food Waste in Restaurants With Adult Fish and Chips

Published 07-22-22

Where there’s an abundance of food scraps, there’s an abundance of opportunities for innovative solutions. It just takes creativity and imagination to turn every morsel of food waste into gold.

Chef Adam Wright hones this creativity in his purposeful approach to cooking. He prioritizes tasty solutions that reduce food waste in foodservice settings, like this adult twist on fish and chips. Watch as he transforms leftover vegetable scraps and fish trimmings into this classic street food dish.

Eliminating Food Waste

Growing up with a single mother allowed Chef Adam to be creative with meals. His challenge was to purposefully use every bit of food in the kitchen to create satisfying dishes without much waste. From childhood to Corporate Chef at Griffith Foods, he’s learned quite a bit about how to use scraps and trimmings creatively:

  • Create a flavorful stock from vegetable trimmings or discarded seafood parts, like skins or shells.
  • Keep the stem and skins on vegetables when possible.
  • Choose lesser-known cuts of protein or parts that are typically discarded, like fish collars or “wings.”
