Healthy Hollywood loves a good success story. And, Shawn "Chef Big Shake" Davis certainly has one!
From humbled beginnings to mega-star business guy. Shawn hit the foodie jackpot with his creation of CBS Foods and the original frozen shrimp burger.
Four years ago, the one-time struggling chef was inspired by his young daughter after she declared herself a vegetarian. To make sure he got some protein in her diet, he convinced her fish was OK and created his own shrimp burgers. After some recipe tweaks, Shawn decided he wanted to give the world a taste of his shrimp burger.
Finally, he got his big break on ABC's "Shark Tank."
The sharks on the show decided not to invest, but other financial folks came forward. Today, his line includes five different varieties of "The Original Shrimp Burger" and can found in over 2,500 stores.
Shawn shares with Healthy Hollywood the recipe for his latest creation: Lite Lobster Mac & Cheese.
