ROSEMEAD, Calif., March 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Forget April Fools' Day...Panda Express, America's favorite Chinese restaurant, is instead hosting a nationwide April Fish Day on Tuesday, April 1, with guests receiving a complimentary serving of its newest entrée, Golden Szechuan Fish, with any purchase.
Made with 100 percent wild-caught North Pacific Cod and inspired by the culinary flavors of central China, Golden Szechuan Fish combines hand-sliced, lightly battered cod fillets, crisp sugar peas and sweet red bell peppers, wok-tossed in a sweet and tangy Szechuan sauce. To take advantage of the one-day-only offer, guests can visit www.PandaExpress.com and print the coupon or save it to their smartphone.
"Golden Szechuan Fish offers our guests premium seafood in a fast casual setting," said Andy Kao, executive chef at Panda Express. "With seven pieces of cod per serving and a healthy portion of fresh-cut vegetables, Golden Szechuan Fish delivers the high quality, great taste and unique Chinese-inspired flavor guests have come to expect from Panda Express."
April Fools' Day, a widely-recognized day of pranks that originated in Europe, was born from the custom of tacking paper fish on others' backs, and shouting "April Fish." Panda's April Fish Day promotion celebrates this tradition with guests receiving free April Fish on April 1. Golden Szechuan Fish will be available at participating Panda Express locations for a limited time.
