Iron Chef America – Battle Barracuda

Last night’s episode of “Iron Chef America” pitted Chef Seamus Mullen versus Iron Chef Cat Cora. The secret ingredient was barracuda, specifically, the Pacific barracuda. No, it is not an endangered species. Our judges for the evening were Donatella Arpaia, food blogger Ed Levine, and sustainable food expert Anya Fernald.

New Years Eve Party Recipes: Garlic Shrimp Appetizers

When it comes to appetizers, we all have our favorites, whether it’s a New Years Eve party recipe, or a recipe for the Super Bowl…any old party will do when we want what we want. In my case, as with many, many more folks, that would be shrimp! I could eat lemon garlic shrimp every day of my life and still feel as though it wasn’t enough.
With this recipe, it’s important to use extra virgin olive oil since any other changes the flavor..and not in a good way! If you’re fond of tarragon, feel free to omit it. There won’t be a drastic change of taste.

This recipe is so simply, fast and delicious that I recommend doubling it if you’re throwing a party for more than a few people. It’s also easily adjustable to your own personal taste, don’t be afraid to experiment a little.
Give these a try at your next party, and have a safe and happy holiday!

Valentine’s Day Recipe: How To Cook Lobster Tails

For a special Valentine’s Day meal, serve up a perfect platter of mouth-watering Lobster Tails that will provide you with a special meal that you and your love are not likely to forget!


Grilled Lobster Tails


Of course a clawed lobster is preferable if you are eating a whole lobster; but for lobster tails, try to get the ‘clawless’ species because their tails contain more meat in them. And just for the record, cold water lobster tails seem to taste cleaner, have a whiter appearance and be much more tender. If you are using frozen lobster tails, you should always buy from a fish market that is well known for selling good quality produce.

Below the fold you will find directions on how to Grill, Steam, and Bake Lobster Tails. Enjoy!

Valentine’s Day Recipes: Champagne Shrimp Pasta

Valentine’s Day – most of us usually want to do something special for the person we love but with all the economic chaos surrounding us, it may be a bit beyond our budget this year.  Below is a shrimp and champagne recipe that’s sure to please!  It’s delicious and beautiful to serve and I will tell you a little cheat…


Champagne Shrimp Pasta


Ever noticed those *tubes* of imitation crab/lobster meat in the seafood section? They’re inexpensive and can be tricked into tasting like shrimp, too!  You may purchase these and substitute it for the shrimp in the following recipe.   Simply slice in diagonal pieces. Remember, too, that with cooking, inexpensive champagne works wonderfully well!

Old Fashioned Salmon Patties

I grew up eating salmon patties from time to time. Its an easy and inexpensive meal that is nutritious and delicious.

Salmon Patties

This is an old recipe that I found on a dog eared, stained recipe card. The condition of the card is enough to make me think the recipe was well used and is a good.

You can serve the patties as the main dish with a vegetable and potatoes on the side or you can make a more elegant dish with a good sauce and garnishes.
