Grilled Shrimp

Grilled Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a very tasty grilled shrimp recipe. The ingredients don't sound like they would go together that well, but the result is fantastic. Try this summer on the grill. My kids loved it..with 9 year old Kyle finishing off 2 whole skewers!

Shirmp with Broccoli Stir Fry

Shirmp with Broccoli Stir Fry by John Spottiswood

This is a bit of a make-shift stir fry that came out great. I mixed some of the ingredients from my favorite chinese and thai dishes here, and the combination came out delicious.

Spicy Shrimp on Spinach

Spicy Shrimp on Spinach by John Spottiswood

We made this as one of the dishes at our annual stay at the Koehler Winery near in Los Olivos near Santa Barbara. Everything we made was delicious, but this might have been my favorite. We served it as an appetizer, and everyone raved about it. It was extremely easy and quick and the presentation was beautiful. I made this with a…

GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS

GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS by Linda Tay Esposito

Gow Choi - Chinese chives are stronger in flavor -- more garlicy taste than regular chives -- than regular chives. The flat-leaf, foot-long green is used as a vegetable rather than used as a herb. In this classic dim sum dish, the chives are mixed with shrimp and stuffed in a a dumpling. The crystal dumpling skin is made from…

Shrimp and Tofu with Black Bean Sauce

Shrimp and Tofu with Black Bean Sauce by John Spottiswood

We're on a mission to create the ultimate black bean sauce. This recipe is getting pretty close I think. I took bits from a traditional Chinese recipe and combined those with another few bits that I got from a Martin Yan recipe. The result was not as sweet as Martin Yan's, but with just enough sweetness to fill out the flavor of…

Clam Sauce for Spaghetti

Clam Sauce for Spaghetti by Sherwin Faden

This was a favorite growing up. Easy and fast to make. I like this best over Angel Hair pasta. This is not a heavy sauce and is on the healthier side. The cornstarch helps to thicken and keep the sauce on the noodles.

Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos by John Spottiswood

These shrimp are easy to make and absolutely delicious. While I enjoy them in these tacos immensely, they would also be great served over rice with beans on the side. They simply melt in your mouth!

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe for pan searing shrimp is one of my favorites. I adapted it from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. It is full of flavor and the shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized if you pan sear them as described. We tried two different recipes the same night and compared side by side. This was the consensus, but not…

Ginger-Hoisin Seared Shrimp

Ginger-Hoisin Seared Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe for pan searing shrimp is tangy and flavorful. It's not as universally popular in our family as the Garlic Lemon Butter Shrimp I've posted. But it's a close second. If you're looking for an Asian flavor, this is yummy. I adapted it from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. The shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized…

Thai Basil & Curry Shrimp - Pattaya by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious curry flavored shrimp stir fry without a heavy curry sauce. The combination of curry and basil is really delicious. This is normally not served very spicy, but you can spice it up as much as you want.

Classic New England Clam Chowda

Classic New England Clam Chowda by Amos Miller

Manhattan is a red soup, New England is a white chowder, and ours is a buttery yellow. This is the simplest, most satisfying chowder I have ever had. NO FLOUR! I really get irritated when I try a "good" restaurant's NE Clam Chowder and 1) can't find the clams, and, 2) can't finish the paste they are passing off as NE Clam…

These are great on a bed of mixed greens (maybe with goat cheese & tomatoes), layered with Fontina cheese & tartar sauce on sliced sourdough, over rice or eaten between bun.
