I have recently gotten hooked on Grilled Tuna as an appetizer at a local seafood place where I live. It is grilled on the outside but rare inside, and encrusted with sesame seed. They serve it with wasabi and soy sauce. It is divine....can't get enough. I have this with a side salad and hot bread. What a meal!!!

What is your favorite appetizer?

Vicki

MMMMMMMmmmmmm

Of course there are many more, but generally when Sue and I decide to spend a little extra on an appetizer, well, we both go for the crab cakes!

We are not big Ruby Tuesday restaurant fans, but their crab cakes are the freshest and best in Florida!!!! Often, we will go there and just have the crab cakes and select a salad from their salad bar.

Funny thing, most of my life I didn't care for crabcake. My mom made them a lot growing up along with the usual Friday "Catholic" meal of fish cake or fish sticks, and sometimes crab cakes.

Then all of a sudden in my late 40's I suddenly fell in love with crab cakes and usually order those (until I recently discovered the grilled tuna).

Crab cakes, well made, are the BOMB!!!

Hey, George, if I come and visit you and Susan can you bring me out for crab cakes?

Yum!

Vicki

PS My all time favorite appetizer, when in season, is oysters on the half shell. I was raised eating them as soon as they were shucked from the shell by my Dad. That's the great thing about living on the Gulf Coast, access to great seafood.

for the receipt Mary. I don't know where the kitchen is in our house, so I'll print out the receipt and have Sue make it.

Thanks again.

All cooks are invited to Florida!!!!! Sue can show you where the kitchen is located! :)

The trick with crab cakes is to handle them gently!!

Don't pack them into a patty, rather gently gather them to form a light and airy mass.

MMMM, crabcakes - one of my favourites!

That is exactly how our Ruby Tuesday prepares them!

Expensive though.... $9 for two!

I spent a Saturday afternoon making these and I can honestly say dinner that night was so good!!!!

They are really easy to make George - maybe Susan can get you to help mix the mixture together and then she can cook them up for you. 8)

They are great with a salad.
