After you’ve been to Maryland and had the amazing steamed crabs, the one-of-a-kind crab cakes made with real crab, and the delicious and savory cream of crab soup, you will never want to eat fish from anywhere else again. Fortunately, thanks to overnight shipping and the Internet, you don’t have to.
It is now possible to purchase seafood online direct from the shore and have it delivered the very next day. This means you can be dining on the foods you love and crave, even without boarding a plane and going on vacation.
The only problem you will have, once you start to purchase seafood online, is that you’re going to want to order all the time since your local food likely won’t compare. To help you find plenty of great excuses to order, we’ve assembled a list of four special occasions when you may want to purchase seafood online. Remember, this is just a brief list of four- there’s plenty more special events that warrant the purchase of this delicious food treat.
1) Christmas Eve
Having fresh seafood delivered for Christmas Eve can be a great way to celebrate the holiday season and to make a real splash at a Christmas party or buffet. No one else will have fresh and delicious seafood for their Christmas treat, so your party will stand out from the crowd.
Even better, an old legend has it that if you eat 7 fishes on Christmas Eve, you will have good luck the whole year through. Those seven fishes may as well be fresh seafood, since you can now purchase seafood online so easily.
Anniversaries are a great time to purchase seafood online, especially if you got married on the beach, went on a honeymoon on the beach, or ever had a romantic beach vacation. When you’re dining on fresh seafood you bought over the Internet, the taste can transport you back in your mind to the magical time and can help to set a romantic mood.
3) As a gift
Many people send steaks to show their appreciation, or they send cookies, flowers or fruit. However, not as many people think of sending fresh seafood as a present. This means that when you purchase seafood online and send it to clients, associates or friends, your gift is likely to stand out from the crowd. Even better, most people consider crab, lobster and other shellfish to be decadent and delicious, so you’ll make a winning impression and show the recipient of the gift that you can go the extra mile.
4) Birthdays, Holidays and Graduations
Any day when you want to have a special meal to commemorate something, you can purchase seafood online to turn the day into a true occasion. Buying seafood online can become a great tradition that you do year after year on a specific birthday or holiday. That way, you will always be assured a really delicious celebratory meal and you will always be able to look forward to the time when you get to dine on your delicious seafood treat.
