A salad like this is informal enough just scooped out of a bowl with some crackers, but fancy enough to serve at brunch with some croissants.

I’m not convinced you need a reason to make this dish, it is so good. Seafood, especially shellfish, is a really good source of B vitamins and other trace minerals that can be hard to find in a standard diet otherwise. Be sure to choose wild caught over farmed for the best quality, although frozen […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

The sauce in this dish is incredible. If you’re not a fan of shrimp or you’re a vegetarian, throw in some pan-fried tofu or sautéed vegetables instead. All the moisture is preserved in the shrimp if they are cooked still in their shells, so you can expect easy preparation and messy eating. Fast, impressive and […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
