Pasta alla Puttanesca with (or without) Shrimp

Pasta alla Puttanesca with (or without) Shrimp

I am making a concerted effort to put some great vegetarian recipes together for all kinds of reasons—health, being eco-friendly and just giving us all more options for terrific meals.  And there’s another great reason to cook this right now.  It’s Lent!  Aside from its […]

Diana Kennedy’s Shrimp in Chipotle Sauce or Camarones Enchipotlados From Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street

Diana Kennedy’s Shrimp in Chipotle Sauce or Camarones Enchipotlados From Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street

Whenever I see a recipe for Shrimp, I am always drawn to it. Shrimp brings back childhood memories of my earliest restaurant experiences.  It felt so very grown up to be served what looked like an Ice Cream Sundae glass where giant shrimp clung to […]

Coconut Shrimp Salad

Coconut Shrimp Salad

Too often, I get into trouble with a recipe that’s just too much food for two people.  Try as I may, cutting back on volume isn’t always the easiest task.   Things that say they are for four people are relatively simple to divide in half.  […]

Shrimp with Spicy Tomato Sauce and Strozzapreti

What cook doesn’t love Shrimp?  They are such an obliging partner in the kitchen. They not only cook in all of three minutes but they turn pink and opaque to tell you they’re done.  They’re wildly popular—in fact they’re by far the most popular of […]

Chop Chop Salad with Gingered Shrimp and with thanks to Daniel Boulud

The man himself, Daniel Boulud Who doesn’t love Daniel Boulud?  His restaurants are on everyone’s New York Top 10 list from Daniel to DBGB on the Bowery, of all places.  I have a particular soft spot for his Bar Boulud, across from Lincoln Center and […]

Ina Garten’s Roasted Shrimp with Feta

          Shrimp is far and away the popular seafood in the country and has been for at least the last 10 years.  Nothing comes remotely close to per capita shrimp consumption which hit 3.6 lbs. last year.  Just for comparison, salmon catapulted […]

Dinner in Burma: Shrimp Curry and Smoky Napa Cabbage From Naomi Duguid’s "Burma: Rivers of Flavor"

         I am insanely jealous of Naomi Duguid.  This writer, photographer, cook and traveller has made a career out seeing of the world and bringing it home in cookbooks.  What a dream job for a foodie with wanderlust!  Duguid has written six […]

A Perfect Dinner Party Dish: Shrimp, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo adapted from Bon Appetit

The Pool was tented for the occasion. What makes a dish perfect for a dinner party?  I’d suggest something that keeps the cook out of the kitchen so that he or she can really enjoy their dinner guests’  company as much as possible.  Last weekend, […]

Roasted Shrimp Salad with Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes and Avocado

        Last Sunday, we gave a pool party for our god-daughter.  It’s an annual event to celebrate her birthday for the four of us who are called “The Uncles”.  Andrew and I and Terry and Shawn have watched Olivia grow up and we’ve been there […]

Lazy Man’s Bouillabaisse with Lulu Peyraud’s Quick Rouille

Since we live in one of the great ocean fishing areas of the country, the temptation to eat the freshest seafood imaginable is an almost daily event.   The fishing boats go out early from Montauk and their catch is in our fish markets later that morning.   The […]

Shrimp Scampi, an amazingly fast Italian American Classic and the story of the Feast of the 7 Fishes.

                                                        Scampi  I first wrote this post a year ago. But I thought I would repeat it again […]

Two Salads adapted from Ina Garten: Roasted Shrimp and Orzo and Beets with Orange Vinaigrette

         Recipes that other cooks invent should be treated with great respect.  I’ve mentioned before that few things put me off more than someone commenting on a dish—very often negatively—that they have ‘doctored’ beyond recognition.   Still, if you do delve into the comments, you can […]

Ready to be folded, Mu Shu in a Moment!            Restaurant General Tso’s Chicken the good, the bad and the ugly. In our bid to eat healthy, Chinese food has taken quite a hit. We never order it for takeout.  And our visits to […]
