Shrimp Mozambique

This is a delicious Portuguese dish that my mom used to make for us all the time. A good crusty bread is a must to sop up the sauce. If you love bold, savory flavors, you'll love shrimp Mozambique.

Spanish Garlic Shrimp (Gambas al Ajillo)

Rating: Unrated

Every Spanish restaurant serves this dish of shrimp cloaked in garlic-infused olive oil with smoky hints of paprika and a touch of sweetness from sherry. Make sure you have all your ingredients together before you head to the stove since, start to finish, this cooks in mere minutes. It's great for a tapas party, since you can prep everything ahead of time. Just spoon the shrimp and sauce over toasted bread and sprinkle more cayenne and parsley on top to enjoy.

Grain Bowl with Blackened Shrimp, Avocado, and Black Beans

Rating: Unrated
10
This blackened shrimp salad bowl is big and bold in flavor and makes for a low-calorie meal packed with shrimp, brown rice, corn, crisp bell pepper, black beans, and avocado. Easy to create with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen/pantry. If you prefer to serve burrito-style, just heat up some flour tortillas and wrap it all up. Either way, it's delish!

Shrimp De Jonghe

A dish my mother made for special occasions. According to some sources, shrimp de jonghe was invented at the turn of the 20th century by the De Jonghe brothers, Belgian immigrants and owners of DeJonghe's Hotel and Restaurant in Chicago. This garlicky, herbed casserole is one of the earliest Windy City specialties. This dish can be served as an appetizer or main course.

Keto Shrimp Scampi

This shrimp scampi is transformed into a keto meal by using shirataki noodles. I like to double the amount of crushed red chiles for an extra kick! This will make 3 lunch-sized portions or 2 dinner-sized portions. Grate some Parmesan cheese on top before serving, if desired.

Delicious tempura shrimp made just like it is at our favorite restaurant. The dipping sauce is a wonderful complement to the mild taste of the shrimp.

Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

I am going to give you my gumbo recipe. I learned to cook from my mother and grandmother who were born and raised in New Orleans and really knew how to cook. Most of the time, you could not get them to write down their recipes because they used a 'pinch' of this and 'just enough of that' and 'two fingers of water,' and so on. This recipe is a combination of both of their recipes which I have added to over the years. Serve over hot cooked rice. The gumbo can be frozen or refrigerated and many people like it better the next day. Bon appetit!

A twist on shrimp scampi that I threw together for my hungry husband one day, made with things I had in the cupboard. It went over so well that it is a regular at our house now.

These spring rolls are a refreshing change from the usual fried variety, and have become a family favorite. They are great as a cool summertime appetizer, and are delicious dipped in one or both of the sauces.
