What to Eat During a Sharknado

By: Toren Weiner

Frame 37

What do you get when you mix one 90210 alum with a dash of Tara Reid and a pinch of global warming?   A recipe for disaster!  In Sharknado, which premiered last night on Syfy, we were given a glimpse into how the world would react if a tornado carrying thousands of sharks were to hit the California coastline.  While the verdict is still out on if the movie will be a contender for this year’s Emmys, the internet went wild through the entire airing, with celebrities from Mia Farrow to Horatio Sanz weighing in via social media.

The biggest question I had was why it took Ian Ziering so long to kill off those sharks, when it only takes Giada DeLaurentis 15 minutes to cook her shark to perfection?  Maybe next time Steve Sanders should call for more qualified backup!  In her mouth-watering twist on a traditional eggs benedict, Giada lays a freshly grilled shark fillet on a bed of sautéed veggies, and tops it all off with poached eggs and hollandaise.  Impress (or freak out) all your friends at the next backyard barbeque with a Shark Jumble they are sure to remember!
