Happy 2014! We’re shrimply delighted to kick off our first blogger outreach opportunity of the year. We’re teaming up with The Shrimp Council (Eat Shrimp) to host the Shrimp Showdown!
For the Shrimp Showdown, we’ll be inviting participating bloggers to create recipes with 5 lbs of shrimp showcasing at least 3 of these OXO tools:
Flexible Kitchen & Herb Snips
Wooden Lemon Reamer
3 Piece Bowl and Colander Set
12″ Tongs with Silicone Heads
Taking on 5 lbs of shrimp* may require some extra hands in the kitchen, so we encourage you to have your friends and family over for a shrimp party to come help peel, cook and eat!
We’ll be showcasing all #ShrimpShowdown posts on a shared Pinterest board on both the OXO and Eat Shrimp Pinterest pages. Also, each post will be added to a photo album on our OXO Facebook Page and cross-promoted on the Eat Shrimp Facebook Page to spread the love.
For this opportunity, we’ll be putting together a shrimp-themed Rafflecopter giveaway widget exclusively for participants to embed into the blog post(s) to share with readers. More details to come!
Some important dates to take note of:
- The 5 lbs of shrimp and OXO tools will arrive on Friday, March 7th.
- #ShrimpShowdown recipe(s) must be posted on Monday, March 24th to allow readers of all participating bloggers an equal opportunity to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway.
If you’re up for the challenge and interested in being considered for this opportunity, please fill this out by this FRIDAY, February 21st at 5pm EST.
*The shrimp for the #ShrimpShowdown promotion will be provided by Eastern Fish Company, a member of the NFI Shrimp Council. The package you receive will include one (1) 5 lb. bag of U15 frozen shrimp (U15 means that roughly 15 shrimp of this size equals one pound). This un-peeled, vein-in shrimp is chemical-free and wild-caught from the waters of Mexico.
Eastern Fish Company, one of the world’s largest importers and marketers of shrimp, began in 1974 primarily as a fish and crab trading company sourcing products from Alaska and Canada. By 1982, the company re-directed its focus to the burgeoning farm-raised shrimp industry and began supplying fresh, consistent, premium quality farm-raised and wild-caught shrimp.
