My favorite Great American Seafood Recipe

Cooking is one of my favorite challenges in life. I call it a challenge because I am the youngest of all four siblings and the most protected by my parents and so I was not able to learn to cook when I was growing up. But now that I am already living on my own, I’ve been struggling to learn how to cook for myself and for my family and friends whenever they came to visit.

As I was learning how to cook, I found it to be a lot of fun especially when I find simple but delicious recipes in the internet that I myself can cook. That is why I liked the recipe of Chef John Currence of Mississippi. He is one of the participants of a cook off which is dubbed as the 2008 Great American Cook Off in Louisiana with his yummy recipe, Mississippi Redfish Courtboullion with Seafood Dirty Rice. His recipe is so simple yet it’s got a mixture of seafood and vegetables that really looked mouth-watering and healthy. Aside from the fact that I really love seafood with rice, I think this recipe is the best of all because anyone can cook it, the ingredients are not hard to find and not hard to prepare, and can be cooked in a lesser time. All its ingredients can be locally bought which means that you can be assured of its freshness. Domestic seafood is not only fresh but it's got all the health benefits intact unlike the frozen ones. If I’ll be cooking the same recipe at home, I would remove the Tabasco sauce so that even my nieces and nephews would enjoy devouring it.

If you would like to try preparing this recipe you may get it at Aside from being able to download delicious recipes, you may also vote for your favorite chef and win a “Trip to New Orleans” prize package which includes two Southwest Airline round trip tickets, hotel, accommodations and dining experience.
