This DIY seafood kit features recipes from 7 Maine chefs

It’s that time of year when you spend more time with your family than alone and constant conversations over a meal can get tiresome if you’re the one in the kitchen.

Planning what food to make for a holiday party can sometimes be the worst part of hosting, not to mention how expensive it is to find all the fixings.

SoPo Seafood in Maine takes the hassle out of planning your family meal by giving you exactly what you need along with the recipes to make it all.

This DIY kit is perfect for those who have a special place for Maine in their hearts or those who are hosting family and friends who want a real taste of Vacationland.

The feast of seven fishes in Maine

During the summer, SoPo had a edible lighthouse made with Maine seafood and they’re back with a new holiday special.

For the first time ever, the seafood shack is putting together a do-it-yourself seafood party kit featuring seven Maine harvested seafood and seven recipes from Maine chefs, all inspired by their own holiday traditions.

That right there is my favorite part; I love that this is curated with special meaning and memories from the chefs. They take a special part of their vacation with their family and share it with yours.

The Maine Feast of the Seven Fish Kit is the perfect special treat for your friends and family and you’ll be the talk of the town; how many other people can brag about having a party like this?

This includes:

  • 1 pound Maine lobster meat
  • 1 pound sea scallops
  • 12 oysters
  • 2 pound hake fillet
  • 2 pounds monkfish fillet
  • 1 pack of smoked salmon
  • 1 jar of seaweed salad

Now you may think to yourself, what the hell am I supposed to do with all that!? Don’t worry, seven Maine chefs are here to help.

Seven recipes included:

  • The classic Maine Lobster roll from The Clam Shack
  • Pan seared scallop with artichoke mousse from The Causeway Restaurant
  • Half shell Maine oysters served with blood orange mignonette The Helm Bar & Bistro
  • Maine hake poached in butter with mushroom risotto and a cream of sherry Via Sophia by the Sea

Well, there you go, folks. There your holiday menu is already waiting for you!

You don’t even have to be in Maine, the kit can be delivered overnight nationwide or for us locals, you can have it delivered locally or pick it up directly from SoPo.

It’s the season for celebration, including the celebrations of Maine’s hard-working fisheries and the restaurants and chefs that support them.
