Calypso's barbecue shrimp gets a Caribbean twist

The West Indies barbecue shrimp recipe first appeared in this column in 2006. Chef Chuck confirmed that, after 13 years, nothing has changed, something that keeps his customers satisfied and coming back. He developed the shrimp recipe when creating the menu way back when as his interpretation of New Orleans style barbecue shrimp with a Caribbean twist. He also emphasized how critical it is to start with wild Gulf shrimp. You will be pleased at how easy the recipe is to make, Carey. The most time consuming part is the sauce. After that it comes together very quickly. Simplify your prep schedule by making the barbecue sauce the day before. This also allows time for the flavors and herbs and spices to meld.

The key to Calypso’s long run is simple, but not for everyone, according to Chuck Ternosky. “Hard work and 100 percent dedication, that’s it. If you don’t have that you should go do something else. The business has to come before everything else in order to make it. Combine that with good service, quality food and a clean restaurant and that’s our formula. And it seems to be working.”

What is the difference between cholesterol and total cholesterol values?

What is the formula for determining total cholesterol, and how does this differ (if at all) from a cholesterol value? In other words, is there a cholesterol value independent of total cholesterol, and, if so, is it used as part of the formula for total


cholesterol and total cholesterol are the same. The fractions are LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol etc.

Why is HDL added to total cholesterol?

The formula for total cholesterol -- as in the test result you get and what people tend to speak about -- is LDL plus HDL plus one fifth of the triglycerides. Problem is, HDL is good cholesterol -- you want it to be high -- and the other two are bad.

lots of people have misinterpreted the result of "cholesterol" or maybe some doctors doesn't know how to interpret them. HDL is good if its high which is equal to Total cholesterol being high also si good in the sense
