The Family Gets Fishy

It all started when I was in the bathroom.  When my son was about 11 months old, Daddy and I took him to the beach.  Daddy was in charge while I took a restroom break.  When I came back to the table, my little angel was gobbling up Daddy’s crab legs dipped in butter and loving every bite!  I tried to push aside my food allergy fears and smile as he looked up at me with a butter-dripping-chin.  Ever since then, my son has LOVED fish and seafood. We all do!  So, over the years, I’ve gotten more confident making these kinds of dishes at home.  Here are some of my faves.  My son eats most of this as long as it’s not too spicy.  I usually “deconstruct” the dish before serving to him and that does the trick.

Not easy, but worth it..  Crab Stuffed Shrimp

Don’t be afraid of cooking fish and seafood.  It’s not as hard as I used to think and it’s fun experimenting with different choices.  If it’s on sale, cook it!
