Great American Seafood Recipe

Growing up in a tropical climate was fun. It was a lot of great pleasures that I have experienced. I lived with my parents near a beach resort. It is a walking distance from our house. There's a nice seafood restaurant inside the beach resort. It was a lovely place to eat, to relax and enjoy the scenery while eating my favorite seafood. Seaweed salad for appetizers, succulent king crabs and big shrimps with delicious sauce. It was all yummy! As I have wrote in my previous blog, I made a very simple seafood recipe as a theme for our New Year's eve celebration. It was a shrimp with broccoli and pineapple. Toss it with full of love and sweetness.

The great American seafood cook off is celebrating 5 years of showcasing domestic and sustainable seafood recipes. There were 5 chefs that were given several challenges in creating their dish for the final round of competition. First, the dishes had to contain one of two mystery ingredients, either Southwest Airline Peanuts or select brews from Michelob Brewing Co. Next, keeping it healthy and simple, the dish’s ingredients had to represent all five food groups and be a dish that even the most harried home chefs could prepare.

I have chosen the recipe - Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots of Chef Tafari Campbell from Maryland. I think it is the best of all because it is simple and healthy. The fish is roasted and he added some vegetables in it, the peas and carrots that made the dish looks good. It is also easy to prepare and it is great dish for a family who's looking for something new but delicious. If I were to create this kind of dish, I would follow the steps in creating the dish and will add colorful bell peppers to add a little bit of spice to get a knock-out taste then I am ready for the cook off challenge. There are lots of benefits you can get from eating seafood such as protein, that builds your muscles strong and healthy and iodine that help prevents goiter and helps your immune system. To all bloggers, visit and cast your vote for your favorite recipe with the chance to win a trip to New Orleans prize package. Who knows, you might won and enjoy the trip to New Orleans!
