LOOK: This seafood platter will make your parties and potlucks deliciously stress-free!

With the holidays right around the corner, I’m sure that a lot of us already have our schedules packed with reunions, parties, and potlucks. Believe it or not, I just attended my first Christmas party last weekend. Yes, it definitely has begun.

Having to prepare for one event is stressful enough especially if it’s a potluck. First, you’ve got to decide what dish to bring that will both impress your friends and family and keep your stress levels low. Then there’s the buying of ingredients and the actual cooking itself. Imagine having to multiply that with the many parties and potlucks you’d have to attend this holiday season.

Before you go on panicking about your first Christmas party, here’s one way to make your holidays stress-free.


The Holy Crab is an online store that offers delicious seafood platters that are perfect for the holiday party and reunion season!

You can choose from either shrimps, crabs, or a combination of both for your platter. They also have five flavors to choose from: the classic buttered garlic, Thai red coco curry, Singaporean black pepper, creamy salted egg yolk, and the spicy Rajun Cajun. But if you’re not into these flavors, you can also opt to get the steamed shrimp platter.

The flavors are exquisite. The crab meat and shrimp itself are already so tasty, but adding the flavors makes it a party in the mouth. Plus, you don’t even have to worry about the quality because their seafood platters are made from freshly caught crab and shrimp. And the sizes are huge. When we were enjoying our seafood platter, I’ve got to admit that I was pleasantly surprised to still find meat even after everything I’ve already eaten.

Each platter can serve up to 5 people (but if you’re a huge seafood fan, it will be gone before you know it!) and it even comes with gloves to keep your meal mess-free. Prices start at PHP 999 and they do door-to-door delivery!
