Hey there this is Leslie Kolovich and I invite you to take a listen to some of my best informative shows about sharks. The following 3 shows help us understand the crucial importance of sharks in our oceans. I believe education is key to understanding just about everything we fear most. It’s Shark Week and we will be bombarded with horrible images that turn the shark into our enemy. I urge you to get past what Hollywood will place before you, try to understand and use common sense. Sharks are to be respected and play a very important role in our oceans.
Enjoy the show with 16 year old Sara Brenes who is very passionate about saving sharks. She tells us why in this very wonderful interview with The Shark Whisperer
Also, enjoy the show with Dr. John Carlson discussing his research with the National Marine Fisheries Service, including shark tagging in the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. John Carlson
If you get a chance go on Amazon and look for the Book “Sea Salt” by Stan Waterman. Look for the 90 minute segment on Discovery’s Shark Week called “The Man Who Loves Sharks”. This interview I will cherish for life. Stan Waterman
It is my hope that these fantastic people will give us all a new outlook, a sense of urgency to stand up and do something about the terrible situation our shark population is in. Fear is brought on by not using our inner spirit to question, to learn, and listen~ Leslie Kolovich.

Helga, not only is Florida’s top Elite Paddler, but has a degree in Culinary Arts and loves to cook! Enjoy this recipe for one of her most favorite dishes, crabcakes!
Listen Now as Helga gives us instructions on how to make her crabcakes…
Here it is one of my favorite recipe
It is very easy to make it.
1 lb jumbo lump crab meat
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon fine plain bread crumbs ( I like to use panko, a japanese bread crumb, it’s more flaky)
1/4 cup thinly sliced scallion (green and white parts)
2 tablespoons minced fresh italian parsley
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
dash of tabasco sauce or to taste
vegetable oil, for frying
1/4 cup fresh italian parsley springs
Place the crab meat on a sheet and spread out evenly. pick through carefully and remove any shell or cartilage. Return the crab meat to a mixing bowl and add the egg, mayonnaise, mustard, bread crumbs, scallion, parsley, old bay seasoning, worcestershire sauce, and tabasco sauce. Mix gently, taking care not to break up the crab too much. Mold the mixture into 8 to 12 patties.
Heat 2 tablespoon of the oil in a large saute pan or skillet set over medium-high heat. Carefully add the crab cakes, and pan-fry for about 2 minutes on each side or until well browned and heated through. Transfer the crab cakes to a plate lined with paper towel. Served it with as appetizer or with your favorite side dish for a complete meal.
I also like to make red pepper remoulade to serve with the crab cakes.
Here it is, the recipe
1 red bell pepper, roasted, seeded and minced
1/2 cup of mayo
1/2 sour cream
1 tablespoon minced fresh italian parsley
1 tablespoon minced tarragon
1 tablespoon capers, drained and minced
1 tablespoon minced sour dill pickle
1 1/2 teaspoon minced shallot
place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir with a whisk until well incorporated. Transfer to an airtight container and reserve in the refrigerator. It can be made a day or two ahead to allow the flavor to develop.
“As a professional paddle boarder I felt like it was time to challenge myself. Usually racing over a 2 – 3 mile stretch, it was time for something different and to push myself further than ever before. I’d been pondering over different trips but I wanted do do something that no one else had ever done and that would take me to parts of the country that I would never normally see, this is where the Coast to Coast journey began.”~ Charlie Grey
