Not Ya Mama's Oyster Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
Thirty-five years ago, a group of friends went to a little Italian restaurant south of New Orleans. We all fell in love with their oyster dressing. We ate it so often the guys made a bet to see who could duplicate the recipe. After many tries, one of our friends figured it out and won the bet. Last year I found the original restaurant recipe in a New Orleans cookbook; our friend hit the nail on the head. This is his version.

Blackened Catfish and Spicy Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 38
Quick and easy blackened catfish recipe. I like to serve this over a Cajun flavored spicy white rice. Although the rice is optional, the slightly spicy Cajun flavor of the rice brings out the taste of the catfish.

Val's Spicy Baked Shrimp

Leave the shells on if you want. Or, shell and serve over pasta for something a bit more elegant. Either way, this is spicy, buttery, truly yummy shrimp!

Authentic and Easy Shrimp Curry

Rating: 4.5 stars 122
This is a home-style South Indian shrimp curry recipe from my husband's family. It is simple and quick to make. It contains no coconut so is not sweet, just mostly juicy and as hot as you like it. Serve with basmati rice or an Indian flatbread.
