Olive Garden's new entree, Chicken & Shrimp Carbonara, was inspired by the chef's recent trip to Rome. A staple in Italian cuisine, Carbonara traces its roots to a hearty meal popularized by charcoal workers in Italian villages. Olive Garden's Carbonara combines chicken and shrimp with bucatini pasta in a pancetta and parmesan cream sauce. Baked and topped with seasoned breadcrumbs, the entrée takes an exciting twist on a classic dish. To learn more about the new menu item, visit www.olivegardennewfavorites.com.
This is a restaurant-quality dish that can easily be prepared at home, you may adjust the amount of fresh garlic and hot sauce may be replaced for the dried chili flakes, make certain that you pat the shrimp dry with paper towels to remove all the moisture or it will create a thin sauce. --- this dish is *very* good!
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.
Smokey chipotle chiles in a rich tomato sauce spiced with vinegar,garlic and onion and lightly sweetened with dark brown sugar. Refrigerator in an airtight container. To make a spicy sauce blend cooked, seeded chipotle in a blender till smooth. You can add back some seeds for heat and texture.
I first tried this at a New Year's Eve party one year and immediately had to ask for the recipe. I couldn't believe how simple it was. This is not for wimpy taste buds - I warn you now that this will be very, very hot. I recommend using Paul Prudhomme's Blackened Cajun Seasoning Blend for this, if it's available - if not, then use any brand you like. You control the amount of heat by how much spice blend you add - this is a true "to taste" recipe. And please don't overcook your shrimp or it will be tough. This is a lightning fast dish so you have to move very quickly. I buy big bags of precooked, peeled shrimp and have it thawed and ready to go. If you wish to make extra, make it in batches as if you add too much shrimp to the pan, you'll end up with soggy, steamy shrimp. This is the amount for one batch at a time - I don't ever make just one batch. Prep time assumes you have already thawed your shrimp (or use precooked fresh if you like).
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.
We really enjoyed this recipe. The Chambord really lends itself well to this dish and creates a nice fruity sweet that contrasts well with the heat of the jalapeno. The original recipe called for 5-6 ounces of olive oil, but we felt that 2 ounce was plenty. The sauce is really good so make sure you have some crusty bread to soak it up with. I served it on a bed of Hawaiian Rice (Recipe #179346) by Chabear01, but it would be equally good on plain white rice.
From Rick Bayless, this is shrimp cooked in a bath of garlic, which has itself been slowly cooked to make it sweet and elegant. The recipe calls for 2 chipotle chiles. Some people may want more--a lot of people will probably want less--chipotles are HOT--so, if you're not sure, go easy and taste before you add all the chiles. This garlic "bath" is also wonderful with fish, and other seafood. It serves 6 generously as a main course, or more as an appetizer.
