Killer Shrimp

I love the flavor of this broth! It’s robust and has a nice kick to it. Once you’re done with the broth, the rest of the dish takes only about five minutes. The broth can take two hours but is truly worth it. Most of that time it’s just simmering away so you can be…

Shrimp with Peas & Seasoned Rice

This delicious, paella-inspired dish is pure magic! Whether you cook it right away or freeze it for later, and whether you cook it on your stovetop or in your Instant Pot, the ease and speed with which you get dinner on the table will amaze your friends and family. On those days when you’re too…

Madras Shrimp

Just tell your guests you’ve been at this for hours. They’ll believe you because that’s how good it tastes! Nobody has to know that this is an incredibly simple, fast dish to make. Don’t just save it for company, either. It’s so quick and easy that it makes a great weeknight meal, too. If you…

Sichuan Style Shrimp with Spinach

Szechuan? Sichuan? It’s all about which system is used to write Chinese using the Roman alphabet. Szechuan is the Wade-Giles spelling, from the system developed by British diplomats in China in the 19th century. It’s being replaced in many places by Sichuan, which is from the Pinyin system developed in and used by China in…

Grilled Lemon-Bay Shrimp

Fresh, bright, delicious! This is one of my favorite recipes for the summer. It’s so simple, but the way the bay and lemon complement the shrimp is just perfect. It’s really easy to make, too. Sometimes I buy my shrimp already peeled and deveined because it saves a fair amount of time and effort. If…

Nutty Shrimp

This dish has it all: quick, easy, and delicious. And unless you’re on a low-sodium diet or allergic to shrimp or peanuts, it’s also a very healthy meal. You won’t need to wash very many dishes, either. One pan to cook the shrimp, one to cook the rice, and one bowl for each of you…

Moroccan-Style Haddock

I returned this week from a cruise vacation, feeling rather…large. Too many calories, too much salt. I may have over-indulged my love of creme brulée. Let’s just call it “aversion therapy,” shall we? I know, you feel so sorry for me, don’t you? We did have a lovely time. Warm weather, the sound and smell…

Chipotle-Mint Shrimp With Chorizo

I’m still not sure what prompted me to try pairing shrimp with chorizo. (It’s Mexican style chorizo, by the way, not Spanish.) I’m so glad I did, though, because it was delicious! There’s something about the heartiness of the sausage that’s a perfect complement to the lightness of the shrimp. Each holds the seasoning a little differently,…
