Peel-N-Eat Shrimp #FishFridayFoodies


It's time for Fish Friday Foodies' August 2021 event. We are a group of seafood-loving bloggers, rallied by Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm, to share fish and seafood recipes on the third Friday of the month. 

This month, we are looking at seafood appetizers with Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen leading the discussion. "Share your Favorite Seafood Appetizer," she wrote. Here's the line-up for the event...


One of our favorite appetizers is peel-n-eat shrimp. Here's what Seafood Watch has to say about shrimp and making good choices for the sustainability of the food and the oceans: click here. I decided that I wanted to do a quick pan-fry version. It was tasty!

Ingredients
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 2 Tablespoons butter (or butter alternative) + more for melting and serving
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • lemon wedges for serving

Procedure
Melt butter in a large, flat-bottom pan. Lay the shrimp flat on the bottom so that they are in a single layer. Do this in batches if your pan isn't big enough. Cook till you begin to see them turn opaque on the bottom. Flip over and cook till completely opaque.

To serve, toss with freshly squeezed lemon juice, Old Bay, and parsley. Serve with melted butter and lemon wedges on the side...and lots of napkins!


That's a wrap for our #FishFridayFoodies seafood appetizers event. We'll be back next month with oven-baked recipes. Stay tuned.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
