I've started getting in to recipe contests this year and wanted to share this one with my readers, since there are a few weeks left before the deadline.
The SuperCook contest encourages home cooks across the country to share their original recipes using any Chicken of the Sea product (which includes oysters, crab, mackerel, salmon, sardines, and shrimp as well as tuna). Entrants will be judged on: recipe creativity; use of Chicken of the Sea product; embodiment of the attributes of health, nutrition, and convenience; and the taste and appearance of the recipe.
The Prizes are pretty sweet:
Grand Prize – $10,000 cash, winner to be featured on a Chicken of the Sea package, and an appearance on The Balancing Act
First Place – $3,000 cash, winner to be featured on a Chicken of the Sea package
Second Place – $2,500 cash
Third Place – $2,000 cash
That got your interest? It certainly got mine.
Find the Contest Rules here. Entries must be received by Saturday, Aug. 15 at 11:59 PM EDT.
Plus, there's a Twitter chat with Food Network personality Claire Robinson in conjunction with Chicken of the Sea. Robinson, host of "5 Ingredient Fix," will be Tweeting live as @COSMermaid on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2010, from 5 – 7 p.m. EDT. During the chat, Robinson will answer questions and share tips on how to create simple, yet super meals. You can also find the chat via hashtag #COSChat.
