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.

  1. I really really want this gift card because I love your blog, and have my own blog (restaurant ratings and recipes) and would love to rate MSG! And I’m a poor college student and would love a great date with my hubby!! 🙂

  2. I really really really want this gift card because I have a health condition which makes me currently unable to eat any food by mouth. (I have a feeding tube.) I always want to take my husband out to dinner, but he refuses because he feels bad I can’t eat too. He has been so amazing with all my health problems and hospital stays. He couldn’t really turn me down if we had a gift card now could he? He totally deserves it!

    Love your site even though I can’t currenly eat. It’s totally food porn to look at food I can’t eat, but I can’t help it. I’m a foodie…. With or without an operating tummy……

  3. I really want this gift card because last summer, I went to Newport Beach and fell in love with a bay shrimp louie. The chance of me finding anything else like that in Utah (outside of Market Street!) is nil, and on a grad student stipend, this may be my only hope. 😉

  4. I really really want this gift card because my husband LOVES seafood of any kind but I can’t stand the smell of the raw stuff so I never prepare it for him. Don’t you feel bad for him?! If I won this gift card I could reward him with the delicious seafood he loves prepared by someone who actually knows what they are doing! If I don’t win, I might eventually have to prepare it and he would be eating mediocre or poorly prepared seafood. You can’t possibly allow that to happen!

  5. I really want this gift card because Gastronomy screwed me out of my free birthday dinner, this year! It’s age discrimination, dammit!!

  6. I really really want this gift card because a long time ago, I was stationed in Cambodia as an undercover operative assigned with infiltrating a militia group and pinpointing their weapons supply chain with the intent of taking down the supplier, who we suspected of being a Russian mafia boss. There was another guy with me on assignment named Rick. The only problem was, I look like I’m Cambodian, but Rick is African American, so when we snuck into their camp wearing militia disguises, it wasn’t long (a matter of seconds, actually) before they realized that Rick wasn’t part of the militia and decided to shoot him up. This was an obvious setback to the operation. As Rick lay dying in my arms, he made me promise to carry on his good name by winning a $25 gift card to Market Street when I arrived back in the states. Only then would he be truly avenged. (He also recommended I try the Shrimp Scampi)

  7. I really really want this gift card because shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There’s um, shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.

    And if you give me this gift card, I will memorize that line from Forrest Gump and recite it in front of Market Street before I walk in. Really. I luvs me some shrimp.

  8. I really really want this gift card because sometimes, the only thing that will really help out a broken down life is a bowl of Market Street Clam Chowder.

  9. I really really want this gift card because I recently graduated from college and took a job in California and am missing SLC more than anything else and this would help me, with my meager new grad job, get back out to the land I love so much (and eat some amazing seafood)!

  10. I really really want this gift card for a number of reasons:

    In no particular order or priority:

    1) With 2 children 2years old and under, full time work and full time graduate school, my wife and I rarely find time or money to have a date night.

    2) Market Street Grill is one of my wife and my favorite restaurants.

    3) Great seafood is not easy to find in Salt Lake City, Market Street being a great place for seafood.

    4) My wife of 5 years only started enjoying seafood since I took her to Hawaii on our honeymoon. Since then we’ve enjoyed Market Street a couple of times.

    5) I have told a number of people about this site and they have probably commented here as well.


  11. I really want this gift card because I love going to Market Street. I always tell my out of state family and friends about Market Street and have brought plenty of business your way. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in the area.


  12. I really really want this gift card because my wife tells me that only eating frozen pizza is making me fat. I have to find something else to eat.

  13. I really, really want this gift card because Market Street has always be my “celebration” place. And September is my “celebration” month–My husband and I celebrate our anniversary every year with a trip to Market Street, I have eaten at Market Street the evening before the births of each of my children, my husband even brought Market Street to the hospital on the birth of my daughter–yes, just a day and a half after eating there before.

    So, for 15 years of marriage, and 2 kids, and a vertible LUST for halibut oscar and clam chowder, please consider me.

  14. I really, really want this gift gard because the first time I tried Market Street Grill I was so disappointed. I would love to go back and give it another chance, but wouldn’t be willing to do it on my own dime with so many other good options in SLC.

    I also think this is a brilliant marketing effort, I bet more restaurants would donate gift cards to see all this praise for them posted on the front page!

  15. I really really really want this gift card because we just purchased our first home and we are finding that fine restaurants are simply not in the budget… but oh how I love them!!

  16. Thanks to everyone taking the time to participate. With so many great entries and worthy winners we picked completely randomly.

    Congratulations to Matt, poster 14. He wins the $25 gift card.

    Stay tuned as we have plenty more give aways lined up for the coming weeks and months 🙂
