AND THE WINNER IS...

Good morning to all of our beloved friend and clients and thank you, thank you, thank you for all the amazing photos you have sent in for our Metro Photo Recipe Contest.

Honestly we received hundreds of photos and recipes showcasing the Little Chefs in all of you. That said, I unfortunately can only pick one winner but have to say this was indeed a very difficult decision.

Some photos of course were immediately disqualified do to their TVMA rating. Honestly, Roger (I changed the name to protect the innocent) did you really think your "Naked Salmon Tartar" would go over well with our wholesome audience? By the way, it wasn't your scantily clad toga that bothered me but if you are going to take food photos you have to do something about that shoulder hair. And Gina (also changed her name) although your sushi was gorgeous, you cannot expect our clients to ignore food safety protocol and arrange Gunkan Maki and Ahi Tuna Nigiri on your birthday suit. Every Little Chef knows that using your body as a platter will elevate food temperatures to unsafe levels and that's not cool. But let's not let those malcontents spoil our celebration. It is with great appreciation I choose Sarah Weiss and her photo of Baked Snapper with

Roasted Red Peppers, Tomatoes, Anchovies and Potatoes. Thank you Sarah for sharing your creation and honoring the product. It not only looked gorgeous but I made this Rick Stein recipe this weekend with amazing success (click here to get the recipe). All kidding aside, I cannot tell you how honored we are at Metro Seafood to have such an amazing community of piscivorous folks who not only appreciate the treasures of the world's oceans but lovingly share their kitchen adventures in the hopes of inspiring all of us.

Should you be looking for some fresh inspirations, I hope you will consider today's original recipes featuring Pan Roasted Halibut with a Lemon Basil Sauce & Pan Roasted Sablefish (Black Cod) with an Arugula Bread Salad. And yes, we will have many more contests, so keep cooking and clicking.
