This is a bistro classic, and one of my favourite meals. Make sure to have lots of good, crusty bread - the 'sauce' produced is beyond wonderful, and you'll want to mop up every last droplet...........
Often found at shacks on the beach in Puerto Rico, this full-flavored crab dish is served in the shell, or with rice and green bananas or plantains. A defining element of the dish is sofrito, a traditional Spanish sauce of tomatoes, onions, garlic, bell peppers, cilantro, and hot pepper. Found at epicurious.com
Jazz up your next party with this yummy, easy-to-prepare-and-even-easier-to-eat paella. Found in the NYT, originally published with FOOD; Paella That's Easy to Prepare for a Party, by FLORENCE FABRICANT, December 27, 1992.
One of two Runner-Up recipes for 1999 in the San Francisco Chronicle. The recipe comes from Le Colonial restaurant in San Francisco. This granita, with its fiery chile, tart lime, pungent mint and fish sauce, gives a decidedly Southeast Asian flavor to the oysters. A spoon of the intensely flavored ice not only keeps the oysters chilled, but as it melts, it creates a delicious sauce that pools in the shells. The granita is best when made the day before serving.
