Fresh Seafood

The city of Oso, WA and all the mudslide victims are in our thoughts and well-wishes.

  • More and more people are discovering the healthy benefits that eating fresh seafood brings. Many types of fish are rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids with a multitude of healthy benefits. We all have our favorites but one of ours is fresh Scallops. Scallops are specifically rich in tryptophan, which is an amino acid that the body converts to serotonin. Serotonin is a brain neurotransmitter that is important for you to sleep, and BONUS, eating foods like fresh Scallops may help those with trouble sleeping.  We’re not making any promises, but hey, eating delicious fresh Scallops may be worth a shot!

    Food.com has a fantastic recipe for Shrimp Scampi. Not only is this easy prep (10 minutes) and a fast meal (10 minutes cooking time) – but it also a fresh, healthy meal option!

    In a large non-stick skillet, heat about 2 tsps. of olive oil. Sauté up about ¾ lbs of Shrimp until it is just about pink. Add about 3 to 4 garlic cloves minced into the mix for about 30 seconds. With a slotted spoon transfer the shrimp to a platter to keep them warm. From there, you want to take 1/4 cup of chicken broth, white wine, lemon juice and some parsley, salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil. Boil uncovered until the sauce is reduced by half. Spoon the sauce over the shrimp and serve with a lemon wedge and parsley for a garnish.

    Abs Diet: Muscle-Building Foods

    The reasons why these Power 12 foods help build more muscle
    If muscles were made from chips and beer, we'd look huge. But they aren't, and we don't -- unless you count that sack o' fat up front and dead center.

    If not Doritos and double bock, then what? We decided to delve deep into the human anatomy to find the secret spot on every muscle where the word "ingredients" is stamped. With the help of Jeff Volek, Ph.D., R.D., an exercise and nutrition researcher at the University of Connecticut, and a really big magnifying glass, we found it. Seven foods are on the list: eggs, almonds, olive oil, salmon, steak, yogurt and water. Add these ingredients to your stomach and faithfully follow the directions on the package -- "Lift heavy weights" -- and you can whip up a batch of biceps in no time.

    Cooking the fish connoisseurs crave with a top chef; first catch of a four-week season
    By KATY MCLAUGHLIN

    I've cooked plenty of fish. But today, my hands nearly tremble as I try to cut into a $34.50-a-pound fillet of Copper River king salmon from south-central Alaska. It's from the season's first major supply of fresh wild salmon and one of the most expensive, exclusive and hyped fish on earth.

    My instructor is chef Tom Colicchio. Owner of acclaimed restaurants in New York and elsewhere and head judge on Bravo's "Top Chef" television show, Mr. Colicchio is known for letting pristine ingredients' flavors come through. He appears slightly annoyed at sharing his kitchen with an amateur. I fumble his instructions to cut the salmon "without pushing down on the flesh," so he takes over and slices effortlessly. "This is good fish," he murmurs as he handles the bright orange flesh, stoking my fear of ruining it.
