Sunday Dinner - 06/27/2010

A few weeks ago, I bought a new healthy New Orleans food cookbook for inspiration. The following recipe is from Andrea's Light Cookbook. This is the first time I've made this dish. But it will be in our regular rotation. It was fast approx 35mins. And my house smells amazing after cooking with all the spices and the white wine.

Shrimp Caprese
2tbs olive oil
1/2onion, chopped
1tsp garlic, minced
1/2tsp red pepper flakes
1lb shrimp, peeled
1tsp brandy
1/2cup dry white wine
1cup fish stock
1tsp parsley
1tsp basil
1tsp oregano
1tsp rosemary leaves
2tbs lemon juice
dash of hot sauce
1tsp worcestershire
salt, to tast
pepper, to taste
1/2lb pasta, al dente

Heat oil on high in a pan until very hot.

Saute onion, garlic, and crushed red pepper until lightly browned.

 Add shrimp to pan until pink. Add brandy and cook for a min or two. Remove shrimp from pan and keep warm.

 Add white wine and shrimp stock. Bring to a boil.

Add parsley, basil, oregano, rosemary, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Return shrimp to pan. Simmer in sauce for a min.  Serve shrimp and sauce over pasta.

I hope you enjoy this dinner as much as I did. What did y'all have for dinner?

If you have any question/comments about this recipe, pls leave me a comment or email at megmehell at yahoo.

Oh how yummy that looks!

I made some Palak Chole for dinner, which is a chickpea and spinach dish that was very tasty.

Yum. Looks good! I made sushi for supper tonight. It was quite delicious.

How was that cookbook? Are there a lot of classic/traditional New Orleans' cooking?
