ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- National Shrimp Day is May 10, but the celebration this year is heating up early.
Beginning today and culminating on National Shrimp Day, SeaPak – America's No. 1 specialty shrimp brand – is sharing tasty shrimp recipes, a product coupon, a how-to cooking video and a fun Facebook giveaway from its online National Shrimp Day headquarters at www.SeaPak.com/Content/National-Shrimp-Day.
The National Shrimp Day promotional period kicks off with a chance to collect some spending money: today only, visitors who comment on SeaPak's National Shrimp Day post on its Facebook page will be entered into a random drawing for free gift cards. Winners will be selected the following day.
"We're rolling out National Shrimp Day festivities ahead of schedule this year and inviting all shrimp-loving families to visit our online HQ and join the celebration," said Daryl Miller, Director of Marketing, SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co. "National Shrimp Day is the perfect opportunity to remind everyone how easy it is to regularly enjoy the unique taste of shrimp. It adds delicious variety to any dish and can make mealtime spent with family and friends feel more relaxed and coastal."
SeaPak's National Shrimp Day celebration is a part of the brand's commitment to sharing the best tastes and experiences of coastal living, Miller explained. Shrimp, the No. 1 selling seafood in America for more than 10 years in a row, is the perfect icon of the coastal lifestyle and a simple solution for making family dinners more special and enjoyable, he said.
The online party for National Shrimp Day 2014 features the following consumer offers and activities.
- One printable product coupon (available through coupons.com) worth 75 cents toward the purchase of any SeaPak package over 8 ounces in size. Limit of one coupon per person/computer; coupon available through May 10.
- Four tasty, coastal shrimp dishes to make at home – special picks from SeaPak's National Shrimp Day recipe collection: kid-friendly Individual Shrimp Scampi Pizzas; effortless Southwestern Popcorn Shrimp Wraps; breakfast- and brunch-worthy Popcorn Shrimp Deviled Eggs; and appetizing Popcorn Shrimp and Spicy Avocado Dip.
- A link to SeaPak's YouTube recipe video showing how to prepare Sweet & Sour Shrimp and Chicken. Asian flair meets the authentic taste of the coast in this one-minute clip featuring SeaPak's mouthwatering Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp.
Since shrimp can shine in a variety of dishes – from salads and sandwiches to pastas and pizza – there are countless ways to enjoy the upcoming National Shrimp Day, Miller said. "SeaPak shrimp products are a breeze to prepare and usually can be on the table in less than 15 minutes," he explained. "All you have to do is heat them up and add them to your favorite recipe."
Shrimp also fit the bill for the American need to eat more seafood, he added. The most-recent dietary guidelines from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend Americans consume at least two servings of seafood per week.
"There are so many reasons to celebrate all things shrimp, and we invite all Americans to join the National Shrimp Day party!" Miller said.
