Centsable Health: Healthy dinner ideas to woo your valentine


You don't have to spend a lot of money to win over the heart of your Valentine. Sometimes a good home cooked meal does the trick.

Adam Jeppeson, a meat expert from Fareway Foods, has some tips for our Centsable Health segment.

There is quite the spread on this table and most of these items are not that difficult to make.

We start with a salad. It's made up of romaine lettuce topped with ham, sauteed scallops and shrimp.

Shrimp cocktail is very easy to make and looks nice. You can also use shrimp to add a romantic look to beef tenderloin. After grilling the beef, top with two shrimp placed together to form the shape of a heart.

Seafood skewers are another impressive option. Slice chorizo sausage and wrap in shrimp and cook on the grill.

King crab legs may look difficult to cook, but it's easier than you think. You can purchase already scored crab legs at the meat counter. Make sure they're thawed and bake them on a cookie sheet in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. They're ready to serve. If they're pre-scored the shells are easier to crack and remove the meat.

When it comes to making lobster tail, split the lobster tail shell with a pair of shears. Pull the meat out and lay it on top of the shell. Season to taste or baste in garlic butter sauce if desired. Bake on a broiler pan in a preheated 400 degree oven. The rule of thumb is one minute per ounce.
