These are the best crab cakes I've ever eaten. I got the recipe from Cuisine magazine. Every time I make them I hear alot of oohs and ahhs and requests for the recipe. There's a local family-owned restaurant in town known for their crabcakes. My teenage niece said they were the only crabcakes she likes, until she tried these. These are even better.
I experienced the most wonderful broiled shrimp dinner at a local restaurant and created my version which is pretty darn close to their recipe. You will absolutely love these! Prep time includes cleaning and butterflying shrimp.
This recipe was obtained from shrimp.com. My son wanted *something different* for new years eve dinner, and I yelled downstairs to him to find something with shrimp, as I had a bunch of shrimp leftover in the freezer from Christmas. The aroma of all that garlic while cooking made our mouths water! Very tasty meal and not a complicated recipe. Our guests raved about it. We doubled the recipe and served 4, however the portions were very generous, I'm sure I could have served 6 on the doubled recipe.
This is a wonderful, light stir-fry, perfect for low-carb diets. For those who aren't restricting carbs, this is wonderful atop brown rice or Asian rice noodles (and its still low-fat!!). You can alter the veggies according to taste, or what you have on hand.
This is a wonderful alternative to fried fish, coating the fish with butter and baking at high heat is the secret to the success of this recipe --- use meaty fillets of fish for this if possible --- FOR LOW-FAT OPTION; whisk together 2 egg whites with 2 tablespoon cold water, dip the fish into the mixture, allow excess to drip off, use in place of melted butter.
