After my friend Edith Gump and I left the nail parlor- she was excited to make this delicious BBQ Shrimp Wrap for our cocktail hour. Which lasted three hours. While they are delicious wraps... after our third glass of Grey Goose she was having a little trouble using her new two inch red nail extensions... so she just skewered them and ate them right off of her fingers. She admitted to stealing the recipe off of Food Network but was too drunk to remember from which chef. She is such a lush. Note: Prep time assumes you are sober.
Do not over cook the prawns. If you prefer you can cook the prawns over high heat in a fry pan. Wonderful to cook for company you are only busy for a couple of minutes. Serve with crusty bread & Green salad. Serve as an Appetizer (but this is an expensive app
I adopted this recipe after the original poster left Zaar. I haven't tried the recipe, yet, but will make any necessary edits when I do. The original comments: "From Food and Wine June 2004. I made these for my Memorial day Party and everyone wanted the recipe. They are fabulous! The Feta Dill sauce has a nice clean, summery taste to it."
Adapted from a pamphlet of seafood appetizers I found tucked into one of my sister's cookbooks, with a couple changes. This dish may be prepared ahead and refrigerated, then grilled just before serving; sauce can be prepared ahead and reheated. Serve as an appetizer OR on a bed of rice as an entree, with small dishes of condiments (chopped peanuts, chopped scallions, coconut, etc.) to sprinkle on it. Preparation time does not include marinating time.
Whether you are on the South Beach diet or not, the marinade for the fish is very tasty. These can be eaten on Phase I of the diet. So far I've tried these kabobs using tuna steak and I'll be trying it out on salmon next. This recipe is courtesy of the South Beach Diet book.
When DH received Steven Raichlen's 'How To Grill Barbecue Bible' cookbook as a gift, this was the first thing he made. So simple, yet an elegant appetizer. The flavors are to die for! (you'll want to soak the skewers for about an hour, so plan a little ahead)
These skewers are delicious, and a perfect alternative to your meat skewers...and more healthy. Suggested types of fish to use: Halibut, rockfish, snapper or orange roughy.The tomato relish should be refrigerated at least 30 minutes, which is not accounted for below.
When I was in college, I worked at Pappasito's as a waitress. I LOVED their brochette shrimp and I asked the cook for the recipe. He didn't give me the exact measurements, but he did give me the list of ingredients. I went home and played around with the quantities of the ingredeints and came up with what I think is very close to the real thing!
A tasty, creative, and inexpensive meal.
This works for imitation crab meat, which is easily separated into small pieces. Feel free to use any vegetables that are quick to cook. The oil keeps the imitation crab from burning and the remaining marinade (which is fine, since the imitation crab is precooked) is used for the potatoes.
