Want to win a $25 gift card, valid at any Market Street location? Yes? O.k. great, we have one to give away to celebrate Market Street’s annual Shrimp Festival that began this week and runs through till October:
A bit more information from the restaurant themselves:
Crab Stuffed Shrimp is the stuff of gastronomic dreams and is the essence of great food, but there is nothing ethereal about it. For those inspired by the film, Julie and Julia, the recipe (not nearly as complicated as selections from The French Chef) is included at the end of this post. During the annual Market Street Shrimp Festival, this and a dozen other delicious shrimp menu selections will be featured on the lunch and dinner menus at all Market Street Grill and Market Street Oyster Bar locations.
Among the other delicious creations from Market Street chefs (who serve more than 200,000 pounds of shrimp annually) are Baked Shrimp Scampi with Garlic Toast, Cajun Fried Rock Shrimp, In-the-Shell Beer Steamed Shrimp, and Fried Coconut Shrimp with Jalapeño Jelly.
