Many people don't know that asking a chef of a restaurant for a recipe is a huge compliment. Recently at the coast, my DH and I enjoyed a romantic candlelit dinner and I was in heaven when I ordered this dish. I emailed the chef when I returned home and to my surprise, the restaurant emailed me the recipe. I wanted to get it on here before i lost it. I enjoyed this so much I plan to serve it to my family and friends for dinner parties. Although the chef emailed me and said they make this in huge quantities, the ingredients would have to be adjusted to the number of people served. So here is my version.... of that lovely dish!
Paprika, cumin, and ginger lend their aromatic alchemy to a simple, no-cook tomato sauce. You can use the sauce with a wide range of ingredients(see Variations). One variation is vegetarian. With its competing spices, strong-flavored cilantro, and acidic tomatoes, this pasta dish calls for a simple Italian white--a pinot grigio, for example. Notes: I use fresh tomatoes instead of canned.
Adapted from Kraft, made-over Shrimp Pasta Salad. Makes a great lunch or side dish. Nice refreshing zing of grated lemon peel livens up this Shrimp Salad. top with KRAFT Reduced Fat Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese Crumbles
This is a recipe I created by combining all the ingredients I liked in other Ceviche recipes. Turn out to be a hit! Everyone loves it. I make this ahead of time and take it out on our boat. Served in plastic cups. Remember to keep chilled. This can be served as elegant or casual as you like. I've served it in anything from plastic cups to Martini glasses or even in brandy glasses for a more special presentation. Cook time does not include marinating the shrimp.
Taken from Taste of Home Magazine, Light and Tasty, April/May 2006. This salad needs to chill for 2 hours minimum before serving. Adjust all the ingredient amounts to taste. Add in some feta cheese also if desired, of coarse that would increase the fat amount. A 3/4-cup serving is only about 5 grams fat without adding in the feta cheese.
I know, another gumbo recipe....This one is from 'Plantation Celebrations', the cookbook I received from the best swap partner ever, Luby, in the latest swap. The addition of the shrimp was my idea. I really liked this recipe because there weren't a lot of spicy spices in it...I like the spiciness but my husband does not. It was easy enough for me to add Tabasco to my own portion while at the table. I used smoked turkey sausage in this.
My Husband favorite. A one dish meal. You can prepare everything up to putting in the oven, chill, till ready to heat. Serve with a nice crusty bread. Or skip the pasta and make Shrimp Parmesan Sandwiches. Check out the step X step for this recipe http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=223776
