Spicy Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli

Oh my goodness Internet, why did you not tell me how delicious and easy this is? Seriously, I want to eat this for the next four nights. And it's even healthy! I've been roasting broccoli forever, but only recently...

BBQ Peel-and_Eat Shrimp

This is an adaptation of an old Bobby Flay recipe. I reduced the sugar, salt and oil, and added lime. Very tasty! Use peeled shrimp if you prefer, just cook for less time. BBQ Shrimp Ingredients: 1/4 cup smoked sweet...

Scallops with Mushrooms and Wine

I adore scallops, but I'd never been able to sear then quickly enough without overcooking them. The strategy of making sure the scallops were perfectly dry, then giving them the lightest dusting of flour to give the bit of...

Sunday Slow Suppers--Shrimp and Crab Risotto

Jerry selected this week's recipe, which can be read here: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/risotto-with-crab-and-shrimp-risotto-al-granchio-e-gamberi.html I made some changes to the recipe to bring the calorie count down. (And yes, I did look for brown arborio rice. No such thing) I only used...

Operation Grilled Calamari

I love calamari when I've had it in restaurants, and I'd noticed that my local Whole Foods sells cleaned squid at a fair (for Whole Paycheck) price. So this weekend I bought a pound of just the bodies. I'll...

Vietnamese-style Avocado, Shrimp and Herb Fresh Rolls

Sunday Small bites--Crab-Stuffed Jalapenos

My goal for Small Bites is to find recipes that are low fat, fairly healthy, and still nice enough to serve guests. I don't know about you, but I get awfully tired of crudites at parties as I'm eying...

Thai Green Curry Mussels

I was hankering for mussels today, so bought two pounds at Whole Foods. I've always loved the spicy mussels I've had in Thai restaurants, so looked at some recipes and cobbled together a version. It turned out very well,...

Seafood Paella

I love paella. It can be used as a vehicle for everything from homey chicken thighs and sausage, to shellfish and fish, or a combination. This simple recipe came from my colleague Kat, who grew up in Mallorca. We...

Crabcakes

I adore crabcakes. I usually order them when I see them on a menu, with varying expectations and results. Some taste more like mayo and breadcrumbs than of crab; others are so filled with extra ingredients that as interesting...

Vietnamese Caramel Shrimp and Sauteed Sesame Vegetables

We had friends over for dinner last night, two of whom don't eat gluten (foods containing wheat) and one vegetarian (who will eat seafood). I was a little tired of the risotto route, so thought I'd go for some Asian...
