16. Quick and Nutritious Entrée Imagine that you work in a restaurant and your manager has asked you to develop a nutritious entrée using either fish or shellfish. The entrée must be prepared quickly during busy lunch and dinner shifts. What type of fish or shellfish would you choose? Which cooking methods would you use and why? What would you add to increase nutritional value?

Interpersonal and Collaborative Skills

17. Make a Cooking Show Follow your teacher's instructions to form into groups or work together as a class to create a cooking show. Your show should demonstrate how to prepare a fish or shellfish dish. Perform your group's show for the class, and film it if possible. If you worked as a class, try to present it to another class.

Technology Applications

18. Design a Web Site Design a Web site that shows readers simple and creative ways to prepare fish and shellfish. Include several recipes, descriptions of cooking methods, and photos.
