Recipe is originally from the Food Network courtesy of Rachael Ray, but I tweaked it to fit our tastes. Very quick & easy shrimp recipe that's done on the stovetop. If your tastes desire spicy & garlic, then this recipe is just for you.
When I was first dating my husband, we went to a small restaurant in Moss Landing and I had this dish. The sweet tomatoes, sour lemon and salty olives and capers are wonderful with the halibut. The chef was kind enough to list the ingredients for me. What I didn't remember exact amounts for, I improvised and it's close enough for me to what I had that day! If you can't get good cherry tomatoes, use any tomato chopped small. I've also subbed half the olive oil for stock when I'm feeling dietetic and that's good too. Not AS good, maybe, but good!
This is another recipe from my Italian sister in law. Its good with Italian crusty bread to mop up the broth. Prep time includes soaking. Based on some queries from other chefs, I'm expanding the directions to include more information about buying, storing and cleaning mussels.
This is a light pasta dish with plenty of shrimp, garlic, and lemon. I have reduced the amount of lemon and salt from the original recipe to suit my DBF's tastes. The leftovers are just as good heated up in the microwave the next day.
A delicious and easy pasta dish that you can substitute chicken for the shrimp if you are not a fan. You can also use a different shape of pasta, but linguine is nice. The optional ingredients are really good but you can omit if you can't stand a little heat. If I use all those ingredients, I find it a little hot, so I add about 1/2 cup half and half cream. I tried to keep it healthy here though! Enjoy!
We had these at Bonefish Grill. They are a great app. Since then, I have been trying many recipes looking for one that tastes close. This is the best that I have found. Sometimes I fix these and just serve with a salad for lunch - very delicious!
Best in unshelled shrimp, though I'm sure shelled will work too. Use about 30 large or 50 medium, but make sure they are raw, not pre-cooked.
Don't forget to serve with ciabatta, to soak up the sauce and gobble up!
We love honey prawns and what I like about this recipe over some of the restaurant recipes are that the prawns are not in a batter and it is served with vegetables, the only addition I would make is to add a finely sliced hot red chilli and stir fry in step 4 with garlic etc. The recipe calls for leaving the tails on the prawns, I prefer not too, personal preference. VARIATION - for honey chicken, use 600 grams of chicken breast fillets, sliced, instead of prawns making it more budget friendly meal. Preparation time is based on you peeling prawns and has been estimated.
Came up with this one a few summers ago when I wanted to impress a newly acquired "beau". He loved it, I hated him ....I dumped him but kept the recipe. Creamy & cheesy, this one isn't low in calories but it is pretty quick. Basically an Alfredo recipe but really garlic-ed up. I've also made this w/crayfish once & it was just as good.
This originally came from a Weight Watchers cookbook and I adapted it slightly for a chili cookoff at work. It ended up as a finalist and was voted "Most Memorable". I really enjoyed the flavor and it is very quick to put together, which is even better! 4 WW points for 1 cup serving.
I came across this recipe and first thing I thought was "Not the Steamed Clams I grew up on" but thought this was a more elegant version of the steamed clams I loved eating as a kid in the summer. I haven't tried this recipe yet but can't wait to try these and surprise my family with these. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (March 1984)
