What's Cooking in Carolina?

Mainly creative menus and recipes (usually healthy) and always from scratch with tips for party planning, theme parties, weddings and decorating tips so you can give swank parties or dinners to delight your guests from a part time caterer, owner/operator of a coming soon Entree Vous, but mainly a cook and eater who grows much of her own food and loves to laugh.

Seafood is In (season)

We've been finding great prices on seafood of late. I'm assuming it is because it is in-season. We headed home for Mothers Day and saw both of our mothers. At the huz's mothers we made a seafood extravaganza.

We had beautiful sea scallops seared with cumin, crab cakes and a spicy garlic, thyme and cayenne shrimp sauté . We roasted vegetables including fresh local asparagus and had a big Greek style Salad. Several of the recipes have been posted before. Go to the website for more recipes.

Last night we had jerk chicken, one of my favorites along with sautéd red cabbage with peppers, onions and caraway seeds and finished with a bit a balsamic and yellow rice cooked in chicken stock.

I came back to town and bought some more of the scallops. Maybe tonight we'll have surf and turf.

Life is good.

    Scallops are done but mussels are just starting. Next week I'll have to go to the fishmonger...the ones in the supermarket aren't always trustworthy.
    As to crabs - I can only be jealous!
