Here's another recipe from the *Best Seafood Recipes* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series. I esp like multi-purpose recipes & this 1 got my attention for its versatility ... perfect for a brunch item, luncheon entree & starter course when served warm w/my Recipe #204658 ... or at rm temp on a finger-food appy nite! Time does not include time to cook & cool the rice & prawns. *Enjoy*
This is another great recipe from the Oct 2006 addition of Gourmet magazine. I've found so many wonderful recipes in this issue and this is no exception. I love coconut shrimp and the addition of club soda, makes this one special!
I found this at the www.FoodReference.com in my quest to find Shrimp Scampi like my father used to make. His was very buttery, lemony and loaded with garlic. Excellent served with rice. Times are a guess-timate (will let you know as soon as I make a batch). I am sure using regular shrimp would be fine.
We watched these being cooked right by our table while in Huatulco. The smell when the marinade was brushed on the jumbo shrimp while on the grill filled the air - so good! This is our version. Enjoy!
**Preparation time includes 30 minute marinading time
(****edit June 25/07 - it was suggested that lime juice would be good instead of lemon juice so I tried it out and I prefer it that way. Thank you for that!)
***NOTE : ) Aug. 7/10 - discovered an even better way to enjoy this recipe! Ran out of skewers so just threw the prawns with all the marinade into a foil pan and threw that on the bbq stirring and turning for about 5 to 7 minutes (depending on size of your prawns). They turned out wonderfully moist and tasty and the resulting sauce was fabulous to dip a crusty bread onto. The sauce is also very tasty ladled on top of linguine. So fast and easy. Cuts the prep time down to basically nothing.
This recipe comes from the March 2007 issue of Cooking Light. It is a nice supper for during the week. The original recipe called for 2 tablespoons of the hoisin sauce, which I thought was too much. It has a real strong flavor, and about half that was good for us. I thought the original amount drowned out the other flavors of the recipe. The original recipe also only called for 2 teaspoons of the peanut oil, but I needed more to keep the veggies from sticking.
Many Cajun shrimp dishes have loads of butter. This is a very tasty version that is much lower in fat. You won't miss it. Serve with French bread and a salad. Fabulous dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.
This is my favourite appetizer especially at Christmas. It is really easy to make also. Amounts are a bit give and take depending on tastes and whether you like lots of sauce (which I do) etc. I haven't yet tried it with brandy, but have heard it is nice. Will be trying this year.
Asian chili-garlic sauce may be found in the Asian section of any major supermarket or in any Asian grocery store, If you like more heat then increase the red pepper flakes, but be careful as the chili-garlic sauce is spicy also! The shrimp needs to marinate for 30 minutes, prep time includes marinating time, you may want to double this it very good!
I made these for dinner tonight and they are scrumptious! Can be made ahead up to and including the breading stage and refrigerated. Then drizzle with butter and bake. Found on the Global Gourmet website.
This I posted as requested. I myself love thai food. And my DH loves it more. You can use any squid, shell fish, beef or chicken. Slice the meat thin for quick cooking if using the meat or chicken. Make it as spicy as you like. This is a fast cooking recipe. Serve with Jasmine rice or noodles.
From the First Coast News website. I had farmer's market eggplants to use and didn't want to go to the store. I just happened to have everything this recipe needed on hand (and usually do) so I tried it. My boyfriend had a late meeting and I told him I'd throw something together so he didn't have to eat fast food. He was pleasantly surprised with this 'thrown together' meal!
