I am honored to have two of my holiday recipes chosen
by the Chicken of the Sea ‘Mermaid’
to be presented in the Mermaid Memo on the Chicken of the Sea website and holiday newsletter.
I created these dishes with my favorite Chicken of the Sea products…
Salmon and Crab…
Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that I’m a walkin’ Chicken of the Sea brand ambassador…
I enjoy their salmon everyday for lunch and often switch it up for a bit of crab or tuna. Since Chicken of the Sea products are gluten-free and dairy-free it’s a play-ground of fun for me…
So, I thought…why not test out my favorite products and recipe test for my holiday inspired dishes…
And, two of these dishes were chosen by the Mermaid to be featured at Chicken of the Sea…
I hope you enjoy them.
