As I walked towards the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew that if I didn’t leave my bitterness and anger behind I’d still be in prison” Nelson Mandela

This is is my Mediterranean take on the traditional Caesar salad. I know Chicken is a lean meat but I have replaced the traditional Chicken with prawns because seafood is becoming a lot more important to our diets than meat.

Chicken may have lots of benefits but seafood brings lots of other benefits that Chicken does not bring.

Seafood is high in Omega 3 fatty acids and it is said that people with a higher intake of omega three in their diets are less likely to experience any form of heart disease or cardiac illness. These fatty acids also help improve our memories and are potentially alzheimer fighting foods.
