Caesar Salad Stuffed Shrimp shares it’s flavor with the famous salad. Diced tomato, cucumber, olives and feta stacked atop a moist, tender shrimp. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan. Serve with a side of Caesar dressing for dipping.

I love a good Caesar salad with chunks of cucumbers, olives, red onions, juicy ripe tomatoes and lots of Parmesan cheese. A few croutons for crunch isn’t a bad idea either. Shrimp adds a nice portion of protein to top it off.
Shrimp is one of my favorite foods. Without sounding like a movie cliche, I can eat shrimp boiled, fried, baked, in casseroles, on and in salads. I even like shrimp on a stick. Tropical Shrimp Kabobs.

Shrimp is only one of many great seafood choices. Consider trying scallops, clams and mussels as protein replacements for some of your family favorites.

Seafood can be a great addition to any heart-healthy diet. Starting with just two servings a week you can do something good for your heart. Seafood is rich in Omega-3s which are proven to be good for heart health. (Source)

Packed with lean protein, seafood helps give you the energy to get you through your busy day.
Seafood offers something for everyone. Purists can enjoy a mild fish like flounder with just a squirt of lemon. Salmon lovers know their fish can take a variety of sauces and still have its flavor shine through.

Spice it up with blackened seasoning, toss some shrimp into a creole or add some clams to linguine and you are on your way to better health.

Many people fear cooking seafood at home.

Here are some tips from http://www.seafoodnutrition.org/
Cook it safely

  • Check oysters, mussels, and clams before cooking. If shells don’t clamp shut when you tap them, throw them away. After cooking, also toss any that didn’t open.
    This means that they may not be safe to eat.
  • Cook shrimp, lobster, and scallops until they are opaque (milky white). Cook fish to 145°F, until it flakes with a fork.

Stock up on canned tuna or salmon for a quick economical weeknight meal. Think outside the box and add salmon to make classics like tuna casserole a new dish. Canned fish also makes quick sandwich spreads and protein additions for salads.

Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways #SundaySupper

Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways

Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways so everyone gets a choice! Buttermilk Ranch, Garlic Herb and Smoky Turmeric flavors in bite-sized versions served with dipping sauces.
This week Sunday Supper is welcoming the home team with a big thumbs up! Actually, we’re using all our fingers to serve our finger food recipes! 😉
Our Challenge…
September is creeping up on us, and you know what that means– Football Season! There is no better time of the year than Football Season for delicious party food. Wings, fries, sandwiches, chips and dip… when it comes to finger food, you’ve got a lot of firepower in your kitchen arsenal! Break out the napkins and let’s celebrate Football Season’s exciting parties with equally exciting finger food!

Football season here can be anything from my guy watching the game with a few friends or one good buddy to packing up the snacks and going to a potluck party. When we’re doing it up at home, I like to put out a variety of foods for snacking during the game.

Sneaking in a veggie tray or salad in a cup is not beyond my scope of snacks.
Of course wings are always a hit but can get a bit messy.
That doesn’t mean I need to rule out chicken. Chicken is so versatile and can lead to so many flavor combos. But I know everyone isn’t into buffalo or spicy flavors. So I thought I’d mix it up a bit.
Popcorn Chicken is a fun way to give everyone what they crave. Serve these delicious bites of chicken with some favorite sauces. Mix and match Ranch, Honey Mustard and Smoky Turmeric dipping sauces with your popcorn chicken for a wild flavor pop!
