Home Cookin’ !!! Seafood Servings “Over and Over”, in a Hamilton Island Australia home

On the menu:
Salmon with Orange and Thyme               Easy Ginger and Lime Roasted Shrimp                 Smoked Salmon Baguette
Lobster and Fennel Stew                              Mussels and Frits                                                         Lemon and Herb Fish
Rye Toasts with Creamed Avocado and Smoked Trout

Breaking my own rules and slipping in a little nutrition science into one of my "Made for Browsing" posts, contrary to belief, many seafoods are still very low in mercury.

For example, almost all seafoods fished in Alaskan waters are recommended by the Alaska Department of Health to be eaten in unlimited quantities for everyone, INCLUDING pregnant women.

more on "the real deal" on mercury levels in seafoods here

Anyhooz, enough "egghead" nutrition science, back to the other side of my brain I love just as much.

This amazing home on Hamilton Island, off the coast of Northeast Australia, is one of the homes I will show to my architect when I design my dream home (…and I'm not dreaming!!!).

I don't wanna copy the design, but I want my architect the see a perfect example of a home with my vision of an open, airy feel.

And a home that blurs the borders between indoors and outdoors, with good feng shui and a touch minimalist Zen, and water, water, everywhere!!

But I won't need to request from the architect a girl in the pool like the first photo above, because if I build that home, she will somehow find her way in there, "Over and Over"  …………yep 🙂

Shalamar: "Over and Over"

ENJOY!!!  One of the my top 3 favorite and most played songs of my life, had to get it into my blog somewhere, because I'm always back in my posts when I'm pulling up recipes and cooking, or just listening to my fav' music
(in case anyone cares  🙂 )

…about the crib

Set within its stunning natural surroundings on Hamilton Island, the residence is sculpted from concrete, stone, block work and glass resulting in a sequence of dramatic volumes incorporating airy living spaces and private sheltered outdoor zones.

The building elements are intertwined with reflection ponds and a swimming pool, lending a sense of tranquility and sensuous tactility whilst providing casual, elegant outdoor living amid the beauty and serenity of the island.
