Seafood Gifting Guide 2022

Our Favorite Samplers & Recipes

’Tis the season for festive fun and feasting! Everyone loves a good meal and, even better, great food. Why not gift those who mean the most with a sampling of some of the finest seafood on offer? 

Cameron’s fresh seafood and crab samplers are the perfect way to introduce your friends and family to our best selling products. We have 3 samplers to choose from, each curated to include a variety of options to please every palate. 


For the Seafood Savant… Our Maryland Seafood Sampler. 

This is, hands-down, our most impressive selection of seafood. Within our Maryland Seafood Sampler you’ll find…

  • 6 of our Premium Large Maryland Crabs. These are no ordinary crabbies! Our large crabs average over 5 1/2-inches (from point to point), they’re caught, steamed, and shipped all within the same day (as fresh as can be), and (like all of our crab products) are certified True Blue, ensuring that these crabs were sustainable sourced from the Chesapeake Bay. 
  • 2 packages of our world famous jumbo lump crab cakes. These crab cakes are made with love! All of our authentic Maryland jumbo lump crab cakes are made, from scratch, every morning with triple the crab to binder ratio (so much crab!).  
  • 1lb of cooked spiced shrimp. These shrimp are colossal and seasoned perfectly with our Maryland-style spice blend. 
  • 32oz of our creamy, dreamy crabmeat bisque! This soup is made with True Blue authentic Maryland jumbo lump crab meat and made fresh every morning following our family’s favorite recipe.

So many delicious dishes await within this box of scrumptious seafood. Here are some of our favorites! 

For the Premium Large Maryland Crabs, try this recipe for Grilled Blue Crabs with Garlicky Mop. This recipes infuses the butter directly into the crab meat, resulting in super savory flavor. 

For the Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, we love this creative recipe for Crab Cake Carbonara. Classic pasta carbonara is known for it’s creamy richness and this crab cake version is no exception, delicious! 

For the Spiced Shrimp, nothing beats the breakfast of champions, a delicious bowl of Shrimp & Grits. This low country recipe is the perfect combination of southern comfort food and charm. 

If you happen to find yourself with leftover soup (just in case), we recommend remixing our Crab Bisque into a spectacular sauce. We love drizzling our bisque over grilled chicken, seared steak or baked salmon. 


For the Bastion of Blue Crabs… Our Maryland Crab Cake Sampler. 

If someone on your list is a fan of Maryland Blue Crabs, they are gonna love this sampler. 

This box contains…

  • 2 of our 4oz jumbo lump crab cakes. Perfect for crab cake sammies and appetizers! 
  • 2 of our 8oz jumbo lump crab cakes. These our our biggie crab cakes, ideal for entrees and perfection as the surf to your turf. 
  • That crabmeat bisque makes a comeback with this sampler. Adding a little classic, casual comfort that’s scrumptious on a chilly day. 


Maryland Crab Cake Sampler Recipe Inspiration 

We love our crab cakes so much! They are so versatile and pair well, not just with Maryland or East Coast cuisine, but with global resonance. Here are three of our all-time favorite crab cake recipes. 

This recipe for Mexican Style Crab Cake Tacos with Jalapeño & Lime Aioli is a spectacular mash-up. The zesty jalapeño aioli pairs so well with the sweet buttery flavor of the jumbo lump crab. 

For a hearty morning meal option, this trio of recipes for Crab Cake Breakfast Biscuits is a comforting treat. There’s a Cheesy Cheddar Scallion Crab Cake Biscuit (swoon), Southern-Style Crab Cake Biscuit (complete with ham and pimento cheese-nom), and the Eggy Cubano Crab Cake Biscuit (inspired by Cubano sandwich with Swiss, ham, pickles, and mustard). 

This easy-peasy recipe for Blue Crab Cake Stuffed Peppers is a excellent solution to weeknight dinners.


For the Comfy, Cozy Cocinero…Maryland Crab Soup Sampler  

Not only is this the season of giving, it is also the season of chilly weather. For those on your list who always seems to be colder than most, we highly recommend the Maryland Crab Soup Sampler. 

This box contains… 

  • 32oz of our crabmeat bisque, a popular fan favorite. 
  • 32oz of our crab gumbo, a super soup made using Maryland crab meat cooked in the style of New Orleans’ gumbo, packed with veggies, herbs, and spices all simmered in a tomato-based broth. 
  • 32oz of lobster bisque. This creamy soup is packed with over 1/4lb of authentic Maine lobster meat. A true taste of New England with every spoonful.
