The Delcambre Direct Seafood program is unveiling a pilot frozen seafood product at the Delcambre Shrimp Festival, Aug. 15 - 19. For the first time, local shrimpers will sell fresh-frozen shrimp to festivalgoers, Chef Patrick Mould will demonstrate recipes and offer samples, and fishermen will give tours at the dock. This is pretty awesome, ya'll! I LOVE the Delcambre Shrimp Festival, not just for the great music and hospitality, but because I always want to bring some great, fresh off the boat shrimp home with me!

DelcambreDirectSeafood.com was created by the Twin Parish Port Commission, in partnership with LSU Ag Center and Louisiana Sea Grant, as a marketplace where consumers purchase fresh, wild-caught shrimp and other seafood direct from the fishermen.  For details info@delcambredirectseafood.com
