ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga., Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For National Seafood Month this October, SeaPak is helping families get inspired and enjoy seafood twice a week by providing them with Shrimptacular recipes and engaging content.
"The campaign this fall is all about showing seafood lovers how to 'Make It Shrimptacular,'" said Megan Grinstead, Director of Marketing, SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co., the #1 shrimp brand in frozen specialty seafood.
"Throughout the year, moms and their families look to us for seafood inspiration and mealtime solutions," Grinstead added. "So we're utilizing a mix of promotions this fall to provide them with fresh ideas and help them add seafood to their diets more often."
To kick off Shrimptacular, the brand has extended the availability of its "SeaPak Summer Jams" Pandora radio station through the end of October. Coupons will also be offered each Wednesday during October to subscribers of SeaPak's Coastal Catch e-newsletter, as well as on the brand's website.
Additionally, on Facebook and Instagram, SeaPak is putting seafood lovers to the test in a user-generated, elimination-style recipe contest. Here, fans will be given the chance to win a $1,000 gift card and other prizes for submitting photos of their original recipes – using SeaPak products and a "mystery ingredient."
Elsewhere, the brand will continue the excitement with a new step-by-step recipe video featuring a quick-and-easy taco bowl starring SeaPak Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp.
Yet another easy way to "Make It Shrimptacular" is to serve up a couple handmade pizzas using buttery SeaPak Shrimp Scampi.
