Sizzling Summer Recipes
"Summer time and the coastal living's easy'
crabs are running and the berries are fine."
We’re in Prime Time Coastal and everyone is heading to his
or her favorite beaches, ponds, river and lakes. This time of the
year means vacation, or our much-treasured “down” time,
when we get a chance to lay back in a hammock or lounge chair, to
catch up with our reading - and more importantly with our family
and friends. I don’t know about you, but for me that always
translates into food. We have a great line up of summer treats that
are actually a sneak preview from my new cookbook, Coastal
Cooking with John Shields.
As you may know I’m a Chesapeake Bay guy and summer just
wouldn’t be summer without a luscious pot of Eastern
Shore Crab Soup – chock-full of sweet, ruby red tomatoes
and lumps of crabmeat. Whether on the back porch or down at the
shore, grills rule for warm weather cooking, and our Grilled
Swordfish with Key Lime Mustard Sauce is just the ticket for
a special meal. For a touch of the South, team your grilled swordfish
with a wonderful Gulf Coast Peach
Pecan Couscous. Berries and sweet, juicy, fruit are plentiful
during the summertime, so treat you guests to a Pacific Northwest
favorite, Cannon Beach Berry Cobbler.
Life doesn’t get much better – enjoy!
