I made these for Christmas 2005 with my daughter. She enjoyed making and eating them. The plate was empty in a few minutes. This recipe came from a little book called 'Bites' by The Australian Women's Weekly - Creative food
There is almost no fat in this recipe, please make certain to generously grease your baking pan, I use the non-stick foil for this --- This complete recipe can be doubled to about 52-53 shrimp, enough to feed a crowd! If your coconut flakes are very large, then just chop them slightly, they will stick to the egg whites better. Cooking time is estimated depending on size of your shrimp --- serve the shrimp with pineapple or a fruit salsa --- your going to love this shrimp! ;-)
This isn't any old tuna salad sandwich. Filled with hummus (Middle Eastern chickpea dip), sesame oil, cumin and cilantro, this is a tuna salad like you've probably never had before. Pack it in pita pockets along with a slices of tomato and lettuce. I am not a cilantro fan, so I leave it out.
Rumor has it that the second Zaar World Tour is starting soon and I'm quickly trying to post recipes in preparation for the next international eat-a-thon (Hee hee). Not sure if you would consider this more Spanish or Mexican. For those not familiar, Manchego cheese is a golden sheep's milk cheese native to Spain which comes in three forms based on aging. For this recipe, the two younger varieties would work best. Be sure to use a cured (not fresh) chorizo. You can make these using full sized tortillas or on tiny ones for a delicious appetizer. (10/18: I have updated the directions to make this a bit clearer.)
I used a mix of cauliflower from the gardenia mix, broccoli and boccoflower for a contrast of color. I quickly blanched the broccoli and broccoflower heads very quickly (just seconds) in salted boiling water and the chilled to brighten the color!You'll need Styrofoam cone and toothpicks. I also used a platter that has a center with with a dip basin which is not really needed.
Author Nicolae Klepper says that mititei were invented one evening at an inn called La Iordachi in Bucharest, known for its sausages, when the kitchen ran out of casings. Originally published in Saveur in 1998. Cooking time includes five hours chilling time.
I love this recipe! It is from the "Frugal Gourmet Whole Family Cookbook" by Jeff Smith. I've made this simple recipe for many years. People are always impressed but... I never tell them how easy it is to make. Some recipes are best kept secret. But I will share this one...
The mayonnaise in place of the butter makes the bread toast evenly and gives a similar yet different crispiness. This is how they made it on the grill at a diner I used to frequent, the kind where the grill is behind the counter and you can watch. CAUTION: using low fat or no fat mayo or even miracle whip will change the outcome of the final product, the first 2 contain water and the second sugar that does not act in the same manor as an oil or fat sub.
You'll never buy frozen mozzarella sticks again! These are easy and absolute delicious with none of the unhealthy additives of the commercial kind. I serve these with my own Angie's Bella Marinara sauce (with the spices punched up a little), but these would also be good with a creamy ranch-style dip. Vary the herbs in the breading if you like, but I like this combination with the marinara sauce.
I've been hanging on an old magazine recipe clipping for years. Finally, I made this recipe and, WOW, it's great. I used jumbo strawberries, but you can also use regular-size strawberries. Serve an appetizer or a dessert! The filling is not overly sweet, and you can add powdered sugar to taste if you want a sweeter cheese mixture. I've found that there's more than enough filling for 12 medium-large strawberries. If you don't have time to pipe the filling, you can serve it in a bowl as a dip.
