I copied a recipe similar to this several years ago from a Gourmet Magazine. I have combined several recipes for Shrimp de Jonghe to my liking. This has the added twist of the sherry and almonds. Almost a Spanish influence. You can either serve this as a starter coarse or main dish.
It is a delightful recipe that is sure to please.
This recipe is a combination of two other recipes I have tried. One being an Argentine recipe and the other an appetizer from Bon Appetite Magazine. My husband loves this recipe as it is chuck full of flavor and it reminds him of one of his meals at a favorite restaurant. We prefer this steak with the horseradish sauce. You could easily substitute a good Chimicurra Sauce to make it more authentic.
This came out of a Gourmet Magazine about 8 years ago. I have tweeked the amounts used in the original recipe to suit my taste and to allow 2 meal portions. The saying is for a meal portion to allow 2lbs of mussels per person. Or you may use this recipe as a nice appetizer for 4-5 persons. It has a yummy combination of taste and I would recommend a nice crusty bread served with it to mop up the lovely lemon cream.
After having a wonderful dinner of mussels in a Seattle restaurant, I came home and tried to replicate the lovely dish. After several attempts at replication, I came up with one as close as I could. It is very nice and flavorful. Be sure to serve with a crusty bread to mop up the lovely broth.
A nice and easy recipe that pleases. Has a taste of sweet and tart that compliments the salmon. Great way to use leftover cranberry sauce after the holidays. I love to use a flavored cranberry sauce with orange or raspberry with this recipe as well.
