Are you a master chef, busy mom, bachelor or a creative person that likes to play with new recipes in the kitchen? Or are you the kind of person who likes to keep it simple in the kitchen and grill outside on a sunny California day? Whichever you may be, we have a fun food-related contest just for you!
Join FCEC for our first Sustainable Seafood Recipe Contest with a chance to win a delicious meal at SlapFish, a famous sustainable seafood restaurant in Huntington Beach. This contest aims to celebrate healthy and sustainable seafood. New to sustainable seafood? We’ve got you covered! To see what classifies as sustainable seafood, check out the West Coast Guide of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Guide. The guide recommends cleaner, greener, safer substitutes for popular, but often less sustainable and healthy, seafood items. Contestants are encouraged to submit their recipes using any of the fish selections recommended in the guide.
How to Enter:
1. Submit your favorite healthy and sustainable seafood recipe in the comment section below.
2. Recipes must include:
- Title of dish
- Type of sustainable seafood featured in the dish
- List of ingredients
- Simple directions to prepare the dish
3. Sustainable seafood recipes must be submitted by 11:59pm on November 16, 2012.
Want to step up your game? Cook the recipe, snap a photo of your healthy and sustainable seafood dish and upload the photo using the form below. Submitting a photo of your dish is optional and does not affect the judging for the contest.
The top two recipes will each win a $60 gift certificate to Slapfish and will be cooked in the Slapfish kitchen to decide the winning recipe. The winning recipe will be selected by Slapfish owners Chef Andrew Gruel and Jethro Naude and will be announced on November 30, 2012. In addition to the $60 gift certificate to Slapfish, the winning recipe will also be featured on the Slapfish menu for 1 week , and during that week, the lucky winner will be able to eat their dish for FREE!
FCEC will create a photo album on our Facebook page to highlight the healthy and sustainable seafood dishes, so make sure to check it out.
On Your Mark, Get Set, Cook !
