Sichuan Shrimp

Shrimp, stir-fries and spicy food sounds good, doesn’t it? After I received an email referring to this dish I didn’t care for the recipe so I looked through my Asian cookbooks. Surprisingly I did not find what I was looking for so I turned to the internet instead. This is what I came up with … Continue reading

Shrimp Fra Diavolo with Bucatini

This  shrimp recipe has been on my list (what shrimp recipe isn’t as I love, love this shellfish). Fra Diavolo is Italian for “Devil monk” or a spicy sauce for pasta or seafood. I’ve combined a few recipes I discovered in cookbooks and online and made this version my own. You can make this as … Continue reading

No, New Orleans Barbecue Shrimp is sauteed in lots of butter in a very flavorful sauce. Down South it is frequently served with the shells, heads and tails on … Continue reading

Shrimp with Tomatoes and Ground Almonds (Tamatar Jhinga)

During this year’s  cold winter months I took a few online cooking classes.  What an online cooking class?  Yes, it is true – this past winter I was introduced to this online source called Craftsy.  While drinking my coffee in the morning and still in my pj’s  I moved into the “great room” along with … Continue reading

Ina’s Baked Shrimp Scampi

This was the main course on New Year’s Eve in my home.  I have so many shrimp recipes, did I really need another one?  The answer was yes as it was different from any I have already posted.  Then it was one of Ina’s recipes, I have all 9 cookbooks of hers, will I ever … Continue reading

Shrimp and Pasta in a Creole Cream Sauce

I can never get too much of this favorite seafood and I like it cooked all kinds of different ways.  From shrimp cocktail, a bisque, stir-fry or in a rich creamy pasta dish.  I like it grilled, roasted or even boiled in a good broth.  Once in awhile I do like to indulge in a … Continue reading
