Great American Seafood Recipe

If the word seafood popped up in my mind, or if somebody just happened to mentioned that word to me, I can’t help but wonder the different recipes that I knew and learned from my grandmother. I even remember one of my most memorable trip back home, when we were cooking shrimp on Saturday morning, As I put the shrimp in my wok, we started laughing for the shrimp started jumping out from my wok because its still alive and I'm afraid my wok will end up empty. Well I read an article as I was browsing online about the benefits of Domestic Seafood. It says that Domestic seafood is an excellent source of protein, is low in fat and sodium and contains other vitamins and minerals that are important for good health. Thats pretty neat ha? Infact, a recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that even modest consumption of fish reduces risk of coronary death by 36 percent. This is significant, because heart disease is the main cause of death among Americans.
I think with seafoods, you will never go wrong with it. I even have my favorite seafood recipe, well at least one of my many favorites. Its called “camaron con gata” (shrimp with coconut milk) it’s not just any kind of coconut milk, but the thick and creamy like coconut sauce cook into perfection hmmm mouth watering. My friend who now lives at the east coast still manage to cook this kind of recipe and since seafood is very much abundant on her place now, because they live near the water so she can just cook this fabulous recipe anytime she wants.
And speaking of seafood recipe, the Great American Seafood cook off website is actually hosting a recipe contest. All you have to do is vote and enter and you might have the chance to win a trip to New Orleans. I did the same thing because I have never been to that area and would love to visit because of their rich history but who know this might be my chance. When I joined the contest I even vote for the best recipe that I think, and its called Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet, it’s a Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille sausage smothered in a white bean casserole from Chef Brian Landry of Louisiana . It looks so yummy though the rest of the 4 recipe is also a winner. That’s what I’ve been telling you, with seafood it’s hard to go wrong with it. I choose this recipe, because not just that it’s in fact a shrimp but there’s also a sausage in it and I think it’s a perfect pair the sausage and shrimp just complements each other. If ever im going to do this kind of recipe, I will pretty much used the same ingredients but exept for the kidney/cannelloni beans, I’m not a big fan of beans and I hope it wont affect the taste of it.

So if your interested of what I’m talking about, and for you to have the chance to win a trip to New Orleans and find out more about the cook off recipe then visit .
