Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp with Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

Wow, it's been 9 months since I've posted on my blog. Sadly, I didn't really miss it. I'm not sure at this point if I'll begin to post more again, or if just on occasion I'll post some recipes I...

Shrimp and Vegetable Curry Soup

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Baked Halibut in a Saffron Broth over Mashed Potatoes with a Tomato and Black Olive Ragout

Brazilian Shrimp Soup

This was an interesting weekend. I'm glad this soup was good, because it took a lot of work to get the shrimp that was used in this recipe. Last weekend my husband went out shrimping with a friend (I had...

Sweet Corn Cakes with Shrimp

Shrimp-Stuffed Squid in a Sofregit Sauce with Aioli

Tropical Lobster Salad

Our ingredient this week is lobster. I thought I would make some type of lobster salad, but then I had to decide what kind. Lobsters are really expensive. I like lobster, but I probably like shrimp as well, and...

Panko-Breaded Fried Razor Clams

This past weekend, my husband went digging for razor clams. In a little over 2 hours, he had his limit of 60 clams. It was a lot of hard work on his part, but I shared in that work...

Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking - All-Shellfish and Mollusks Soup

Today, my recipe is a delicous soup of squid, clams, mussels, shrimp, and scallops. Marcella didn't give any explanation of this recipe. It reminds me of a cioppino, but with less tomato. There is tomato in this recipe, but...

ALASKAN CIOPPINO

SQUID INK PASTA WITH SHRIMP AND ZUCCHINI

THAI LIME SHRIMP

Garlic Shrimp Pasta

Here's one of my favorite things to throw together for dinner. It is very quick to make. If you have peeled shrimp, it would be even faster. I don't have a recipe I follow, so here's what I do:...

SUNDAY SALAD SAMPLERS #12 - CEVICHE

It's hard to believe we're into our third month of salads. Today's salad was chosen by Candi and it was perfect for the warm weather we've been having. She chose Ceviche. Normally, Ceviche uses fish/shellfish that is "cooked" in...

SUNDAY SALAD SAMPLERS WEEK #8 - SHRIMP SALAD

Okay, it's not Sunday, and for those of you who checked, I didn't post a Sunday Salad Samplers recipe this past Sunday. I still wasn't up to standing long enough to cook. But I'm back to being able to...

WHAT TO EAT ON A HOT SUNNY DAY

SUNDAY SLOW SOUPERS #12 - FIVE ISLANDS SEAFOOD CHOWDER

SHRIMP CAKES WITH CHILI-LIME SAUCE

I wanted to make something a little different for dinner using shrimp, and I remembered a recipe that I had seen on Epicurious for Shrimp Cakes. These were really tasty. I baked them instead of frying them(just drizzled a...

SHRIMP ETOUFEE (sort of)

It seems like most nights when I fix dinner, I don't plan a recipe I'm going to make then go to the store to buy the ingredients. Instead, I am looking through my fridge, pantry, etc. to see what...
