When I was at the beach last week, I ate a Georges in Alys Beach, and there were wonderful spring salads on the menu (I ate there 3 times). This great food made me want to do a television segment on great spring salads. Today I taped several segments for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama”. My version of Sensational Shrimp Salad was one salad I made, and they loved it! I took a shortcut and used already cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp. The flavors of white wine vinegar, fresh dill and Dijon mustard create a fresh and light dressing mixture for the shrimp. I will let you know the day the show will air, but here’s the recipe early.
While in Atlanta last week, I went to “Rathbun’s”, a very cool, sexy restaurant, in Inman park which is definately worth checking out. You may have heard of Kevin from the Iron Chef on the Food Network or in one of his reviews about his success in publications such as Oprah, Esquire, USA Today or Travel and Leisure. All of his accolades are well deserved! Everything on the menu is worth a try, but save room for dessert. This Banana Peanut Butter Cream Pie is out of this world. For more information on Rathbun’s check out www.rathbunsrestaurant.com/. His other restaurant, which I can’t wait to try is “Kevin Rathbun’s Steak” and don’t miss his “Krog Bar”, at the same location.
