Vietnamese Mango and Prawn Salad

Vietnamese Mango and Prawn Salad

If you read my last post about my trip to Vietnam, you will remember my going to Cooking School in the town of Hoi An.  The class began with a visit to the Central Market, a hurly burly of a place with vendors selling everything […]

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 […]

Oven-Roasted Shrimp and Sausage Paella
