Baked Tangerine-Hatch Firecracker Shrimp #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway

While I love firecracker shrimp, I only have them when we eat out because I do not fry at home. But when I received the No Sugar Added Tangerine Hatch Chile sauce from Not Ketchup, a #FreshTastyValentines sponsor, I knew I had to try to do a baked version at home. No sugar added + not fried = a healthier version of this fun appetizer. Success.

First a few things about Not Ketchup...I became acquainted with the product when they sponsored previous blogging events I've coordinated. Check out my Braised Meatloaf in a Cherry-Kissed Sauce, Oven Roasted Flank Steak with a Fig-Gorgonzola Sauce, and Blueberry-Pickled Shrimp which were all made with Not Ketchup.

But this is their first sauce with ABSOLUTELY ZERO ADDED SUGAR. Here's the scoop on Tangerine Hatch Chile Not Ketchup...

  • NO added sugar
  • NO artificial or non-nutritive sweeteners
  • Of course, nothing artificial and no preservatives
  • Sweetened only with REAL FRUIT - in this sauce that's tangerines, apples and dates
  • 1g sugar per serving

Erika suggests it would work well with any kind of seafood, pork, beef, chicken, turkey and you need only look at her Instagram feed for ideas; she has been featuring this flavor for the whole month of January.

You can find Not Ketchup in stores, mostly in California, Texas, and Michigan. Look here. You can order it on Amazon with free shipping for Prime members: here. Or order from her website.

  • Enough shrimp for everyone to have two or three apiece
  • wonton wrappers
  • 1/4 C No Sugar Added Tangerine Hatch Chile sauce from Not Ketchup
  • 1 t red chile pepper flakes
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • oil for brushing
  • Also needed: silicone baking mat or parchment paper

Place the sauce, red chile pepper flakes,salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl. Shell the shrimp, leaving the tail on. Pat the shrimp very dry with a towel or paper towel and put them in the bowl. Make sure they are completely coated in sauce. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Carefully wrap the shrimp in the wonton wrappers.

 Lay on a silicone mat-lined sheet. Spray or brush with oil. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip over. Brush with oil again. And return to the oven for an additional 6 to 8 minutes. If the wrapper is still not browned, return it to the oven for another minute or two.

Serve immediately with more Tangerine Hatch Chile sauce for dipping.

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

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
