Season 2 - Episode 9
What better place to introduce our “Seafood Diet” episode from Season II of Food Over 50 than by the sea. But we certainly do not need to live close to salt water to enjoy fresh ﬁsh and shell ﬁsh these days. As we age, the lean, healthy, tasty aquatic protein and Omega-3 sources from seafood are very welcome to command a greater portion of our diets. This in turn can lessen our consumption of fatty red meats!
For Episode #9 David prepares a mixed bag of seafood specialties, starting with a fabulous ﬁrst course, Crab In A Cradle. Sweetly decadent crab meat is nestled in a ripe avocado half, dressed with a light and lovely lemon dressing. For the ﬁsh course our host revs up one of his many bamboo steamers, slitting and seasoning a whole red snapper with Thai-style aromatics before steaming it to perfection in lemongrass-scented vapor. And for the main course, it’s a hearty and appetizing Maritime Stew loaded with delicious and nutritious varieties of ﬁsh and shell ﬁsh swimming in a lean but luscious broth!
