I hope you all enjoyed this week's seafood roundup and THANK YOU for allowing me to share your wonderful recipes. I'm heading to the NYC TECHMunch Food Bloggers Conference tomorrow morning and will be busy all day, so I'll respond to comments over the weekend and fill you in next week.



  1. So jealous you are going to TECHMunch! I wanted to go so badly, but we already had plans to be away. Can't wait to hear about it.

    1. It was a fun, informative day. Wish you could have come but we'll have to meet up soon!

  2. Great line-up, Carrie! Thanks for featuring my fish burger:)

  3. Another fantastic round-up, thanks for including my shrimp! I've been to 6 of the top 50, and we're hoping to go to Per Se this summer. Alinea, Arzak and Eleven Madison Park are my top 3 on this list. Have an amazing time at TECHMunch, I wish I could've joined you!

    1. You're welcome and I have to try some of these myself. Wish you could have also but we'll meet up again soon!
