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.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
