"Fishing is boring, unless you catch an actual fish, and then it is disgusting."
-Dave Barry, Columnist

The refrigerator light goes on...

For horseradish lovers this is a great dish (and even for those who don't like it so much). It has a lighter horseradish flavor enhanced by the caramelized shallots. Sweet, salty and spicy all at once. Any white fish will do -- you could use halibut, snapper, rockfish or even cod.

Grapeseed Oil and Cholesterol

A study published in 1990 in the Journal of Arteriosclerosis showed a remarkably beneficial effect of grapeseed oil on HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol. It appears that one ounce per day is enough, with the research showing a 13 to 14 percent increase in HDL cholesterol.

In another study published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, fifty-six participants with low HDL levels substituted up to 1.5 ounces of grapeseed oil for the oil they used in recipes. At the end of the study, the subjects showed no significant change in weight or total cholesterol, but the ratio of LDL to HDL had changed with a 7% reduction in LDL and a 13% increase in HDL levels.
