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 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.

Thumbs up

another yummy way is to cook then in a garlic/onion/soy sauce mixture, and wrap them in butter lettuce or bibb lettuce. you can then dip the wrap in plum sauce..mmmm

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.

You can't go wrong with a shrimp omelette - 2 egg whites and 1 egg yolk made with 100 g of shrimp.. Its very nice and has only 129 Calories (0 carbs, 21 protein and 5 fat)...
