No. 2 : Kitchen Smidgen

Anchovies are SO good for us – but they are one of those foods that many people dislike. They have probably eaten a whole salty anchovy topping a pizza or salad and decided NO WAY am I ever going to try this again. But when you chop anchovies finely and blend them into a dressing like this recipe, or warm them with oil until they break down, they are no longer too salty, too squishy or too fishy – they just have a pleasant  lightly salty briny flavor!

No. 3 : Get Creative

Worried about what you have heard about the carcinogens created by grilling protein like fish, seafood, poultry and meats? Making a quick and easy marinade with fresh herbs and olive oil like the one in this recipe reduces the amount of carcinogens significantly.

No. 4 : Wine FIND of the Week

Chateay du Jaunay Muscadet
Loire, France
Total Wine about $13.00

This crisp, fresh citrus-y aromatic wine is the traditional accompaniement to seafood in the Loire Valley of France. Muscadet is the name of the wine – it indicates the place of the wine. It’s made with a funny named grape called “Melon de Bourgogne”. When you serve a simple seafood from the grill,  this is a super match!
