Shrimp and Andouille over rice
Barbecued shrimp is a real treat. I think they are the perfect appetizer for parties and everyone loves them! They are quick to prepare and cook in only a couple of minutes so dinner can be on the table in under 30 minutes. They are versatile and can be prepared in a wide variety of ways. Steamed, grilled, sautéed, or deep-fried, I love them any way I can get them!

Fish and chips are a tradition in Britain and a sense of national pride. You can find it in every pub and each declares theirs is the best! Fried fish and bread was mentioned in Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist” in 1830. Chips, the English name for French fries, arrived in the 1700’s, an import from France and Belgium. Today there are around 11,000 “Chippies” (fish and chip shops) in England and Ireland. During the fortnight of Wimbledon about 30,000 servings of fish and chips are sold with Malt vinegar as the topping of choice.

Salmon is a super food. It is chock-full of nutrients that help keep us feeling young and vibrant. One of the best sources of Omega-3, salmon and other deep-sea fish, are important in helping us battle the signs of aging and keeping us healthy. Eating Well magazine recently ran a fascinating article comparing the United States’ consumption of unhealthy omega-6 fatty acids today to that of our ancestors. “Today, Americans get 10 to 25 times more omega-6s than omega-3s, partly because we don’t eat as many omega-3-rich [foods], such as salmon and sardines … mostly our diets now contain processed foods that are packed with omega-6-rich oils, including oils made from soybeans, safflower and corn.” Capt. Joe Hibbeln, M.D. believes that this dietary change is responsible for our society’s increased rates of depression, ADD, stress, etc. He gives a list of ways we can increase our intake of healthy Omega-3’s … something we should all be aware of.
