I was first contacted by Fitness Magazine in March.  By some universal force my resume got into the right hands and the magazine offered me to develop a recipe for their Dinner in 20 section.  The goal was to create an original, healthy recipe that took 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish. 

By this point, I’ve had experience developing recipes for Cuisine at home magazine (just a note to all you grammar people out there – “home” is really meant to be lower case) and Joy Bauer’s Slim & Scrumptious Cookbook.  I was up for the Fitness challenge!

Unlike a 9-month-giving-birth-to-a-baby process, giving birth to the recipe took only 5 months from development to print.  I hope you try this recipe for Grilled Curried Shrimp with Mango Couscous in your own kitchen and let me know your thoughts!

Thanks so much to the staff at Fitness Magazine – I had such a wonderful time working with you and hope to do it again in the future.
