does anyone have any different recipes for cooking shrimp?
i live on the gulf coast and have access to lots of fresh shrimp. we bought 25lbs the other day, so i now have a freezer full and need more ways to cook it. tonight i am going to saute' some in olive oil with sausage, onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms. i have also wrapped them in bacon and baked them...so good.
i just don't know what else i can do. i have pleanty so i'll try anything.
by the way...i'll be picking out the onions tonight because they are not allowed in my diet.
Wow i can't beleive that you can eat sausage and bacon on your diet, but you can't have onion? what sense does that make? 1 oz. of sausage is 90 calories with 7.5 grams of fat. 1 oz. of onion is 9 calories with .04 grams of fat. seems like a better deal to me... the onion.
anyways i like to make "garlic shrimp." there are many recipes but mine is fast, easy to remember, healthy/nutritious, and tastes fairly good.
1 pound shrimp
1 cup julienned carrots
1/2 cup (8 cloves) minced garlic
1/3 cup basil, parsley, or cilantro (whichever you like best- i use cilantro)
it's easy to remember the recipe and how to cook it. put stove on high; cook garlic 1 minute, add shrimp and cook 1 minute, add carrots and cook another 4 minutes. if it's not high enough the shrimp won't be done. you should leave it in until they are cooked.
i also have these items in my refridgerator regularly. and a clove of garlic is what 10 cents and cilantro is another 35 cents. not bad on the wallet.
