It’s winter, and time for comfort foods. Although casseroles and slow-cooked food are always a good choice, shrimp are very versatile and easy to prepare.
Yucatecan Shrimp Cocktail
We loved the way Yucatecans served seafood cocktails like this shrimp one in tall parfait glasses with a thin sauce that was more like a juice.
Margarita-Grilled Shrimp Quesadilla
If ever there were such a thing as a “Grilled Shrimp Mexican-Style Pizza,” this would be it. This can be served whole or cut into wedges as an appetizer.
Noodle Shrimp Salad with Cucumber Salsa
This quick and easy basic shrimp salad can be changed by using a different salsa to dress the noodles. Try a commercial peanut-based salsa with it.
Smoked Macaroni and Cheese with Shrimp
I planned for this smoked macaroni and cheese with shrimp dish as a barbecue side. That ended when I tasted it and knew I had t promote it to center stage.
Stir-Fried Shrimp in Chile-Garlic Sauce
The recipe combines marinated shrimp, ginger, garlic, hot chiles, asparagus and lemon grass for a somewhat spicy but extremely flavorful entrée.
Spicy Coconut Shrimp Kabobs with Cous Cous
The marinade is quite sweet–but works well with the shrimp. Interestingly, this is a re-creation of a dish Nancy was served in the British Virgin Islands.
