Spice Up Your Life

 I have been eating really well lately and wanted to share some photos of a few plates Esteban made for me.  A Penzeys Spice shop opened recently in our nearest shopping center.  That shop is so amazing, with just a few spice blends our food is so much more flavorful. if you have never been in one I suggest going in.  You will be amazed at the variety and quality of the spices.

I found them online and they say they stock over 250 spices and blends. 
Here is the site:  Penzeys Spices
In the last few days, Esteban has focused on sea food, take a look. The photo on top is shrimp with tomatoes, mushrooms and brown and wild rice. I believe the spice mix he used included saffron. Delicious. This was like a home made shrimp scampi made more healthfully.

The first photo below is salmon and shrimp and onions with a bit of curry spice. The second is salmon and onions on pumpernickel. The salmon was rubbed with an Indian spice blend called Tandoori.  You can see we are loving the pumpernickel bread right now, it has such a great strong smell and taste. 

This just goes to show that finding the right spices can change everything.  So here's to finding all the right spices in life as well as in cooking.
