Broiled Chesapeake Bay Clams, Lemon, EVOO,  Oregano, Prosciutto
Traveling down to the local market and finding fresh littleneck clams is kind of unusual where I live. Large food  markets are a good distance away so I decided to try a local market nearby. As I walked in the scent of fresh vegetables, herbs, seafood and tomatoes opened my eyes, hopefully I would I be in luck? Chesapeake Bay Clams As I walk though the isles I noticed tons of fresh poultry, pork roasts and  freshly baked breads and pastry items. I kept my fingers crossed as I approached the seafood aisle. I did not notice a unfriendly smell of old seafood but just the opposite, rows and rows...

Fire Cracker Shrimp Cool Ginger Cucumber Salad

Fire Cracker Shrimp Cool Ginger Cucumber Salad
Just in time for the fourth I had a little extra time to put out this blog post.  I have a Thai friend who lives in Birmingham, Al that developed this recipe for Cool Ginger Cucumber Salad for the Copper Grill’s seared tuna appetizer.

Looking around at the market  gives me a chance to choose some of the freshest ingredients. Ginger Cucumber Salad 1 large...

Whole Roasted Snapper

Whole  Roasted Snapper
Where have I been! Well, I’ve been away for a while and would like to explain where I have been since you last heard from me. There have been no posts from my blog in well, months, and maybe ages and I apologize!  When starting this post I had to refresh myself on the updates on WordPress and approve the many comments that I have received.  For the past couple of months I have been very busy at Mckendricks and also out to conquer my fears and lack of understanding of photography. I finished a photography class at Showcase School of Photography, Digital 101,  in late October and...

Barbecue Lobster

Barbecue Lobster
I wanted to do some barbecue this weekend and was thing about trying something different. I needed something light for dinner and decided on cold water lobster tails. These tails are the best money can buy. They are South African cold water lobster tails that are sweet, tender and delicious barbecued and dipped in drawn butter with the addition of cilantro. South African lobsters are different than Florida lobsters or even Maine lobsters because of the frigid waters they are raised in. Florida lobster tails have no claws and because of the warm water they tend to be a...
