    I like to cook and am moderately good at it. In the last couple of years I have been developing my skill and working with new recipes. Some of my favorites are:

    Tuna steak seared with a lemon, garlic, butter, and capers sauce

    Shrimp sauteed in onion, orange zest, garlic, soreno pepper and flambe'd with tequila.

    Chicken picata

    Chicken marsala

    Shrimp scampi ( sauteed in garlic, lemon, wine, and butter. Add a bit of melted butter mixed with flour to thicken it up at the end). I'm getting this one nailed down.

    What are some of yours?

    Salmon, I season both sides with McCormick "Season All" (no MSG) drizzle olive oil and add a little butter. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. About half way through I add string beans. (lower carb diet)
