This modern cookbook is stocked with paradise-inspired recipes like Halibut with Mango Ginger Sauce, Pan-seared Sea Scallops with Vanilla Key Lime Coconut Sauce, and Citrus Chicken.
Perhaps one of the book’s smartest recipes is for an appetizer called Armadillo Eggs. This calls for cheese stuffed into a jalapeño, which is covered with turkey sausage, and then all stuffed into a freezer biscuit and baked.
Paradise Served is notably loaded with amazing seafood and fish recipes as well. Grilled Tilapia in a Pouch offers a simple new way to grill this white fish. The Key West Yellowtail Snapper with Tomato Basil Salsa sounds complex, is a simple, fabulous way to dress up any fresh fish with fresh, local ingredients.
As a community cookbook, Paradise Served is true-to-form in representing a locale's culinary culture with simple recipes that range from classic to modern. The proceeds from the book go towards the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale’s many community stewardship efforts.
Since 1937, the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale has promoted voluntarism, developed the potential of women, and improved the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. To order Paradise Served or for more information, visit www.juniorleagueftl.org.
