Photo Description:

In this photo the shrimp skewers are served with fresh lemon wedges, since lemon juice is delicious with shrimp. Try lime juice instead if you like it. You can also see a dipping sauce in the dish and you can serve any sauce you want. What about a creamy tartar sauce or some mayonnaise? A sweet, thick lemon dressing would also work, but most people would go for something creamy, since the shrimp are slightly spicy and creaminess gives a nice contrast. You can see how allowing the shrimp to char in places makes them look really yummy.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
