When you're not making fun of the Paleo diet, it's actually a pretty effective way to shed pounds and learn to eat healthier without sacrificing your favorite bacon. Uh, food. Grab this reliable book of Paleo-hacked comfort food and prepare to fill up on protein. Next up, the best chicken breast preparation you've never tried. 

Back in 1997 or so, when I was waiting tables at the Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta, my friend Jonn “Nish” Nishiyama won best seafood chef in Georgia for his ginger-garlic-scallion-crusted halibut. It was the one dish that we could not remove from the formal dining room menu at the golf club—everyone absolutely loved this dish (myself included). Ever since then, coating things in a ginger, garlic and scallion paste has been a go-to technique of mine, and I have Nish to thank for the inspiration. Not only does the crust taste great, but it also adds some great color to the dish.
