What is a pescetarian? It means that the only kind of meat you eat is that of fish and other seafood. This makes dining out hard, given the limited seafood items on most menus. This blog talks about the choices a pescetarian has when eating out, about meals you can make (although these come few and far between), and, well... desserts. (I didn't say this was necessarily a healthy eating blog, did I?)
Biljana, my Serbian friend, prepared a version of this for our potluck lunch. Its Serbian name is Kuglice sa orasima I cokoladom (which I can't pronounce). I like it because you don't really need to cook it.

1 cup ground plain vanilla cookies (tea biscuits) or honey grahams 1 cup ground walnuts ½ cup chopped chocolate ½ cup confectioners' sugar 1 tablespoon butter, softened 1-2 teaspoons apple juice, to moisten For rolling: 1 cup ground walnuts or flaked sweetened coconut
What you'll do
Make cookie mixture: Mix together the crushed cookies, walnuts, chocolate and sugar. Work in the softened butter, then just enough juice to moisten the mixture and enable it to hold its shape into a ball.
Roll the cookies: Place ground walnuts or coconut in a shallow bowl. Pack and roll a tablespoonful of mixture between palms to make a ball. Dip the ball into ground walnuts or coconut.

This is the easiest dish to cook ever! My Chinese friends said this is a very common dish in their country. Something they whip up when they want a quick meal. I thought it was a good alternative to a tomato omelette, which tastes good with bread (Western version). This goes well with rice (Eastern version).
What you'll need:
Diced Tomatoes Eggs, beaten Vegetable Oil Salt Sugar
What you'll do:
Heat oil in wok, stirfry eggs. When eggs start to solidify, add tomatoes, continue stirfrying. Add salt and sugar.
Shrimp Risotto was my absolute favorite dish at a restaurant called Aresi in Quezon City. The restaurant closed down because their lease was up and the landowners refused to renew it (probably envious of Aresi's success). At any rate, I really miss their version of this dish. I tried to recreate it, and though I'm no chef, I think I did a good enough approximation.
You Will Need:
Rice- Pre-cooked and refrigerated overnight Olive Oil Garlic Onion Mushroom Soup Tomato Sauce Grated Cheese, whatever kind you like Peeled Shrimp Basil Thyme Salt Pepper
What You'll Do:
Saute garlic and onion in olive oil. Add shrimp. Add everything else. Leave to simmer for around 30 minutes.
