Seafood Boil? Have you purchased online?

My DH is interested in doing a seafood boil for 8 adults. We live in eastern Oregon quite a ways from the coast & any 'fish mongers'. I was wondering about possibly buying the seafood ingredients on-line & wondered if anyone here has done this before. And if so, which company did you use & what were the results?

Thank you... Hope we're able to pull it off.

Old Bay Seasoning is a favorite for seafood boils in the SE. That's my suggestion.

Rhizo_1 - I have the seasoning but was wondering where to buy the actual seafood (maybe clams, shrimp, etc). I googled the Old Bay but found only the seasoning itself. Perhaps I didn't state my original request clearly. Thank you for responding.

I live in Texas and order from Pike Fish Market in Seattle. There seafood is wonderful and they ship it overnight.

I need to place another order, we ate the last of the halibut last night.

We do a crab boil. I order from Chesapeak Crab in Maryland. They over night it and it arrives perfect. I no longer do live crabs b/c it's too much work. Instead I get them steamed ahead.

We just hosted our third or fourth one!

They come with the seasoning. I do extra. It works perfect. Then I invested in the hammers one year, crackers and butter warmers. It's so easy and it's a hit. We just added doing french fries to the menu too. Another big hit.
