Garlic Shrimp and White Beans

This is another request from my husband. He found it on Epicurious. I’m all for anything that includes beans. They are filling and I love their texture. This recipe calls for white beans, like cannellini, but I used a combo of cannellini and Italian Romano because I love the softness of the Romano. Right from…

Grilled Shrimp with Tamarind Sauce

A few months back I bought some cilantro paste.  I found it in a Latin market with the chile pastes.  They have a wide variety of chile pastes in various colors from red to orange to yellow.  They also vary in heat intensity.  So, I bought the cilantro paste because I like to try new…

Zuppa di Mare (Seafood Soup)

I make this soup all the time.  It has all of my husband’s favorite things in it and, as an added extra bonus, it is not very “fishy” tasting.

Barley Risotto with Shrimp

Barley is a great whole grain alternative to white rice. This recipe uses whole grain barley, rather than that which is more commonly seen in the store, as pearled barley. The pearled variety has had some of the husk removed and cooks faster. It is also a bit less nutritious.

Low Country Guava Shrimp

I don’t know if you’ve ever had the opportunity to see and smell a real live guava fruit, but it is now officially my favorite aroma.

Bombay Shrimp Curry

I prepare a lot of curry at my house because I love the spice and the ability to alter that spice to my own specific tastes.  Also many curries cook fast and that gives me the ability to scale back the recipe and just make it for myself if my dahlink husband really insists on…

Broccoli and Shrimp Scampi

This is a Thursday entry from Cooking Light’s Sunday Strategist. So far I have actually lost ten pounds. I know. I don’t believe it either. Hopefully it had nothing to do with being sick since Monday. You may have noticed I have not posted any recipes since last week. You did miss me,  right?

Shrimp Ceviche with Mango

Sweet, savory, and tart all at once. That is what you get when you step outside the box and add some mango to your ceviche.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

It’s grilling season! We joined Sam’s Club just to buy a particular grill I had my eye on. We’ve been wanting one of those hybrid grills with both gas and charcoal. I found a really cool one with that and a smoker box and a searing thing-a-ma-bob! It has pretty good reviews online, so I…

Chile Shrimp with Butter Beans and Couscous

Hmmm.  Beans and shrimp.  It just might work.  I thought this was an odd combination, but had to try it.  Especially since I eat beans and whole grains at least 4 to 5 days a week.  It is reminiscent of Shrimp and Grits.

Shrimp and Coconut Soup

This is a relatively hearty soup made with shrimp and pasta in a creamy, curried broth.  It is flavored with “complete seasoning” which is a Latino blend made by Goya, Badia, and others.  It is a mix of onion powder, garlic powder, and herbs – sort of like a ranch seasoning mix.

Make Your Own Wontons

These are better than takeout. This recipe is for shrimp wontons. You can eat them as is, fry them and serve with a dipping sauce, or drop them into broth for wonton soup.
