Great Seafood Recipe's

I love to cook but as everyone knows it hard to think of new, exciting and healthy foods to eat and cook every day.

The Great American Seafood Cookoff had a competition with chefs were in a cook off where they had to make a recipe using fresh seafood that people at home could cook, out of the fifteen chefs five finalists where chosen for the year 2008.

My favourite recipe is Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet (Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille sausage smothered in a white bean casserole) by Chef Brian Landry

Why did i choose this one:
.............................................I think the Chef Brian Landry from Louisiana in the cookoff made the best recipe using the fresh seafood from his area, i like how he has taken the andouille sausage to add a different flavour to the shrimp and using fresh ingredients from his area of the country, showing how using fresh ingredients are the best.

Everyone knows that to have a healthy diet you should eat a mixture of different coloured vegetables per day. Chef Brian Landry has done this by using the celery, tomato, onion and green herbs, also by adding the white kidney/cannellini beans you are getting the fibre that you need for the day.

Using the domestic seafood you know that the seafood the fishermen bring in daily will always be fresh with a great local taste for you and your whole family, if you have picky eaters in your family with the wide variety of seafood you are sure to find something that the whole family would love.
