SPICY! If you love spicy shrimp dishes, this one is for you. I serve it over rice, but you could have it any way you like. For those who don't like it really spicy, reduce the amount of chipotles. Would be great barbequed and basted with the sauce. Adapted from a magazine clipping. Easily cuts in half for smaller servings.
After tweaking a recipe seen on "Barefoot Contessa," I arrived at this delicious, LOW FAT, high protein hors d'oeuvre that everyone (even the non-fish eaters) gobble up! Dead simple to make - just be sure to devein the shrimp, and don't cook them too long. Classically served with sauce in a martini glass, with shrimp hanging around the edges.
Broussard's--at 819 Conti Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans--may be the most romantic place to eat dinner in all of the United States--especially on a lovely night when you're eating in the courtyard. And this shrimp dish, rich yet elegant, is typical of Broussard fare.
Pretty tasty if you like jalapenos! I like to make this dish for picnics or potluck dinners and serve cold or room temperature. The cook time listed depends on how much chicken you have and how hot your oil is. I put 30 minutes because that is about how long it takes me.
I have had several people ask me for an authentic chicken gumbo recipe. This is my attempt at a recipe. I didn't realize it until I sat down the try to type this, I don't know HOW I make gumbo!Gumbo isn't about recipes. I never saw my Maw Maw's recipe because she didn't have one. Gumbo is cooked with instinct and heart. Gumbo is a dish you are taught not something you can make by reading a recipe. My gumbo won't taste like yours and yours won't taste like mine, altough mine tastes pretty similar to Maw Maw's but that is probably because she taught me how to make it when I was about 8. If you have the ability to cook with pinches, dabs and shakes, if you can season, then taste, then season a little more until it tastes right to you, then you can make gumbo using this "recipe". If you can't, you might want to find someone to show you how.
Great gumbo. It was my grandmother's recipe, then my mothers, now mine. It's gone through a few changes here and there, but is basically the same. My mother liked to add shrimp to this, too, and sometimes left out the chicken entirely and put crab and shrimp in it. She never left out the andouille, though.
This has to be one of the most amazing chicken dishes I have ever made or eaten. It's really scary to watch people just attack this dish and practically inhale it in one breath. Brush up on your Heimlich Maneuver, people do get a little over-enthusiastic over this. Prep time includes marinating time.
This chicken in a paprika tomato sauce is perfect served over hot buttered egg noodles. A family favorite! I originally got this from The Essential Cookbook, but adapted it very slightly to suit my own tastes.
This recipe is really two recipes in one. It's also one of the best around for shrimp scampi that works just as well with chicken! This is a favorite in our house. Maybe it will become a favorite in your house, too.
If you've never cooked with tomatillos, this is a great place to start! This is a close adaptation from Steven Raichlen's "Big Flavor Cookbook" (great book!), and has been a favorite as it is fresh, easy to make, adaptable, and lower in calories and fats. I've served it on rice as well as in tortillas. It can be made ahead to reheat, and has contemporary feel in its fresh flavors. I like to use skinned, deboned chicken thighs, although Mr. Raichlen uses breasts.
