A refreshing Filipino recipe with Shrimp & Lime! Pansit is a noodle dish often served at birthday celebrations for longevity! Enjoy! #BeachEats   #30AEats  +Gene McLeod +VISIT FLORIDA +Visit South +Visit South Walton  #Seafood   +Susan Benton +GulfCoastRestaurants.com +philippine recipe twist +Filipino Recipes Portal +Filipino Recipes 
Susan Benton Have you tried Pancit? It is pure comfort food in our home, right up there with chicken adobo, as far as Filipino recipes go. It is a noodle dish, often served on birthday's for longevity. We crave a taste of the Philippines now and then, as my father was stationed in Subic Bay during the bicentennial of 1976, when I was in elementary school. What memories! Many Filipinos use chicken, pork, shrimp, or sometimes a combination of the t...

Get ready for your Farmers Market shopping tomorrow! With the heat index at an all time high, this is a recipe you won't want to miss out on! Served cold as a dip, over lettuce as a salad, or as a side to grilled steak or chicken, it is so versatile, and so healthy!

Contributor: Caroline Coker I love pretty much everything about this recipe, but take note, I'm a dipper. I prefer to use store bought pita chips, or house made baked pita chips for this healthy and satisfying dish. When home, I stop by the Seaside Farmers Market on Saturday, or Modica Market to pick up grocery needs. I grew up right behind Modica Market, attended Seaside Middle School, and actually worked for the Modica family when I was in 6th ...

Contributor: Caroline Coker Since my family and I love fresh shrimp, whether seasonal royal reds, brown, white, or on occasion rock, and I was passing by Maria's seafood in Pensacola today, like a moth to a flame I was sucked in to purchase some crustaceans.  With it being royal red season- the very deep water, salty shrimp caught miles out in the Gulf that taste like lobster, that was my goal. But, Maria's was out (insert sad face). What they di...

Contributor: Caroline Coker I'm not a fan of milk or creamed based soups, however I do really like she-crab soup, a Charleston delicacy my mom learned how to make from my grandmother, who got her recipe from the Junior League cookbook, Charleston Receipts. They lived there for a short period when my grandfather was stationed in Charleston, and it is also where mom learned her crabbing techniques. When my mom moved to New Orleans and began cooking...

Nutrition Contributor: Caroline Coker I was born in Mobile, Alabama, but also into Louisiana's seductive food culture, as my biological father grew up in the restaurant business in New Orleans, and my aunts and uncles were (and a few still are) in the fishing and shrimping industry, working in Venice (not Italy), Grand Isle, and on the eastern shore of Louisiana, where many still reside today. I have caught shrimp off the docks of the bay and hav...

Beat the heat on the #GulfCoast  this weekend by reading #30AEats  article on proper hydration, and getting a fresh and cooling recipe for Gazpacho topped with jumbo lump crab!

  Contributor: Caroline Coker Recently, my grandfather was hospitalized at Sacred Heart on the Emerald Coast. We thought it was a cardiac episode, and so did his doctors, until tests revealed that he was not properly hydrated. It can happen to babies, pets, children, the elderly, so no one is immune. Dehydration can sneak up on you silently, and truly can be deadly. Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 90 percent ...

Heat Index High? Cool off with this refreshing and healthy Watermelon & Tomato Gazpacho! Optional- But to add a touch of Gulf Coast flair, top with Jumbo Lump Crab! Delicious!

Contributor: Caroline Coker Gazpacho is a soup made of raw vegetables and served cold, usually with a tomato base, originating in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. However, here on the Gulf Coast, especially in the Florida Panhandle, it is eaten in abundance and with many different variations. Watermelon contains 92 percent water, and is the perfect hydrator for steamy beach days. This recipe is sure to please for lunch, a light dinner, o...

Are you a scallop lover? How about bay scallops? Here is a delicious and healthy recipe for Bay Scallops with Tomato & Fennel over Whole Wheat Skinny Spaghetti, along with tips on scalloping! The season opened in Florida on July1 and runs through mid September! 
+Gulf County Welcome Center +Adrianne Woodward  #GulfCounty   #LoveFL   #EatGulfSeafood   #30AEats  +SoWal +Susan Benton +Scalloping &Fishing Charters +The Daily Meal 
Nutrition Contributor: Caroline Coker Living in 'The Sunshine State' all of my life, I have been known to go scalloping a time or two. It is the quintessential summertime experience, and very much like going on an under water Easter egg hunt, yet in the clearest saltwater you will find on the Gulf Coast. With snorkel gear in tow (fins, mask, snorkel, small mesh bag, glove and diver down flag), recreational divers like me tend to head to Port St. ...

Nutrition Contributor: Caroline Coker My mom is a pretty sensible "nose-to-tail" cook, but also an avid avocado lover, who got my vegetarian aunt hooked on smashed avocado toast before it was all the rage. My stepfather who raised me likes to think of himself as a vegetarian, but he is definitely a very loosely defined flexitarian, giving in at least once a month to some meaty indulgence. Mom will mix things up by adding sliced tomatoes and fresh...
