Congratulations to giveaway winner, Karen Behrman! Hope you love your yummy home delivery!
Calling all seafood lovers! Enter the Camerons Seafood Giveaway and you can have a taste of the Maryland shore delivered to your doorstep.
We were delighted to receive an overnight package on a Saturday morning, courtesy of Cameron’s Seafood. Beautifully packaged on ice, it was filled with some of our favorite types of shellfish.
Cameron’s Seafood has offered to send this same seafood sampler to one lucky reader of MoreTimeToTravel. Interested? Read on.
In what now feels like a prior life, we spent many weekends sailing the Chesapeake Bay when we lived in the Washington, DC area and weekended in Annapolis. The area was seafood-rich, a mecca for foodies with succulent seafood wherever we turned. Why? As the largest estuary in the United States, the Chesapeake Bay is home to some 348 species of finfish and 173 species of shellfish.
But it’s most famous and delicious denizen has to be the Maryland Blue Crab!
After a day on the Bay, we would look forward to eating seafood dinners in our condo in Eastport, Maryland, one of the historic Annapolis neighborhoods bordering the Chesapeake. On Friday nights, we would order take-out, seafood and corn on the cob from the nearby fish shack to steam at home. It came in a huge galvanized steel pail that we returned empty during our next visit.
Other times, we would drive to a crab house on the South River where everyone wears bibs. Long tables were lined with brown wrapping paper as we and other diners worked for our dinner, using seafood pliers and mallets to extract the sweet meat from hard shell crabs.
The Cameron Seafood Sampler
But like us now, not everyone lives near the source! You may even be land-locked.
The Cameron Best Sellers Sampler comes with:
- ½ dozen #1 male crabs (considered the largest and heaviest)
- two crab cakes
- a pound of spiced shrimp (with yummy Old Bay seasoning), and
- 16 ounces of rich crab of crab soup
The food is shipped fresh, the same day it’s caught, and comes with easy-to-follow preparation instructions so there’s minimal fuss. (No need to shop or purchase other ingredients.) Even though we are hearty eaters, the sample was so bountiful that it lasted for three meals.
We thoroughly enjoyed our nostalgic seafood feast(s), the next best thing to dining on the Chesapeake Bay and hope you will, too.
Disclaimer: Eating hard shell crabs tends to be messy but is SO worth the cleanup. See the video below for insttuctions.
