I've never been a big fan of seafood myself, mainly because of the price, but after seeing the cook off at www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com I'm thinking differently. I particularly liked the look of Tafari Campbell's recipe from Maryland - Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots - the peas and sauce just make it look more appetising to my taste than the other recipes. I also like the "Butter and salt to taste" - I personally prefer more butter and salt in my seafood than others, so it's nice to see that written in expressly in the recipe.
Seafood's actually a great food to use around the house. Domestic seafood is a very tasty meal, and could even go well with an alternative main meal. And it will always be fresh, so you can enjoy the taste of fresh meat when people are often used to salted or otherwise preserved animals such as bacon. Let's face it - not all of use live so close to the sea that we've grown tired of seafood!
I would encourage you to drop by at the www.GreatAmericanSeafoodCookOff.com site and enter your vote of your favourite great American Seafood. You even have a chance to win a trip to New Orleans including two Southwest Airline roundtrip tickets, hotel accommodations, dining experiences and more, if you enter the competition. There are some truly excellent chefs on the roll there, and you could have a look at their recipes for yourself. You could use them as-is, or, if you're somewhat of a seafood buff, you could even modify them to suit your needs and taste!
