Delicious Recipe

Chef Tafari Campbell from Maryland created this scrumptious and delicious recipe. Just seeing a photo of it makes me hungry. The dish that I think is the best and voted for is called Pan Roasted Glazed Rockfish with Peas and Carrots.

In the site,, There were a number of chefs from different parts of the country in which they had a cook off. They had to be creative becuase they had to cook using some mystery ingredients like for example Southwest Airline Peanuts or select brews from Michelob Brewing Co. And then it was narrowed down to five chefs and then we get to vote which one we think is the best. Actually I had a hard time deciding which one to vote for because everything just looked so good. There's Colorado Striped Bass Panzanella by Chef Paul Anders from Colorado, which I think is a really close second. There's also Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet by Chef Brian Landry from Louisiana. Of all the foods, I love sea foods the best. I have previously posted about my favorite food and mentioned that I would rather eat seafood than anything else. The only thing I would change about all of these recipes is that I would add more seafood. I would add lobster tails, jumbo shrimps, scallops and etc. It would probably compromise the taste because of overloaded seafood meat, that's maybe why I'm not a chef because I would just stuff my face with all of the seafood meat that I can get.

Visit the site and vote for your favorite recipe or you download the recipes and cook it yourself and taste how good it is. I've only tried one of these recipes but I kind of screwed it up. I'm not exactly a chef because the only thing I know how to cook is fried stuff..hehehe..! Even when I screwed up the recipe that I tried, it was still good much more if it was actually cooked and made well. But of course, none of the food you cook will taste great if its not made with fresh ingredients. So stop by your local market and get the freshest produce or seafood available.

Here's the recipe.
