“Increasingly we find that many people have food allergies which we need to accommodate at the Inn. This past month we had a guest who was gluten and lactose intolerant and didn’t eat red meat. I created this grilled shrimp and scallop kabob with an avocado and mango salsa to address her dietary restrictions. Paired with a wonderful coconut rice pilaf (I’ll give your the recipe next month) it was a big hit with all the diners that night, so it will become a regular on the menu. Quick and easy to prepare with some sauteed vegetables it makes a colorful and delicious entree. To good times with great food!”
