Thank you Fulton Fish Market for sponsoring today’s post and an amazing giveaway!
I love birthdays. I always have and am pretty sure I always will. I am the oldest of four kids and growing up as part of a clan you share pretty much everything you have, your clothes, your toys, your parents, everything. Which is fine, I love my siblings and I wouldn’t change that at all but birthdays were always a day that was just about the birthday kid. My parents always did such a great job of making birthdays a fun time. I think each of us always felt very loved and special on our birthday.
Tuesday happened to be my birthday. Now that I am grown and don’t live near any of my siblings or parents Mr. Maebell and I have come up with ways to make birthdays memorable in our little family. The key is always a delicious birthday dinner. It has to be something fantastic that we wouldn’t normally have. Here in rural Tennessee fresh seafood is basically non existent. Everything in the grocery is frozen or imported because when you live in a land locked state that isn’t usual commodity. Until now that is!
I teamed up with a few of my favorite bloggers to create an easy and delicious recipe with fresh seafood straight from NYC’s Fulton Fish Market. If you aren’t familiar with the iconic 194 year old Fulton Fish Market it brings in between 1-2 million pounds of seafood 5 nights a week! And now you can get that fresh seafood delivered right to your door. The Fulton team is excited to introduce FultonFishMarket.com which enables consumers across the contigious U.S. to enjoy the bounty of the worls 2nd largest fish market and its incredible selection.
You now have easy access to fish and seafood fresher than you can imagine at your front door as fresh as it was in the market, guaranteed! There is a huge selection to choose from including East Coast Halibut, Faroe Island Salmon, Fluke, Flounder, Catfish, Grouper, Drum, Black Sea Bass, Squid a variety of Crab, Oysters, Mussels and Clams and of course Lobster and lots more!
I received a box of fresh East Coast Halibut and decided to bake it with a simple and flavor packed Parmesan and Pecan crust! This is the kind of dish that you can easily make on a busy weeknight because it is ready in under 2o minutes, but you can also prepare for a nice dinner because it is impressive and worthy of guests!
