Hi guys, hope you are enjoying the FIFA World Cup 2014 with Shakira’s World Cup Anthem “La La La (Brazil 2014)”. I personally love this song. Any discussion over football is incomplete without mentioning the name of a great Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. He has a great fan following and many nicknames like Ronnie, CR, The Sultan Of The Stepover, Cris, C. Ronaldo, Ron, CR7, Rocket Ronaldo. Well, who can forget his link ups from Paris Hilton to Kim Kardashian, over the past eight years. Nevertheless the Real Madrid star and his list of sizzling and steamy affairs included number of hot and sexy women. He is even among the highest paid football players in the world.
The Portuguese sensation is undoubtedly super sexy and he has one of the greatest bodies in the sport. So lets check-out what the celeb loves to eat. CR7 is very fond of Portuguese food and gastronomy. He loves to savor the traditional food from his homeland, Madeira. Rocket Ronaldo is very fond of fish, especially swordfish, sea bass, gilt-head bream etc. He loves taking fruit based diet and natural juices such as pineapple, pear and apple. The Portugal Forward player loves the grilled cod that his mother, Dolly makes. So lets add something more to our summer grill recipes along with Rocket Ronaldo’s favorite grill.
Grilled Cod with Garlic and Chillies
Coarse kosher salt,
4 whole garlic cloves,
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil,
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper,
