Grilled Shrimp with Old Bay and Aioli

Grilled Shrimp with Old Bay and Aioli

I have to say this is one of the best recipes we’ve made all summer.  What’s great about it is that it’s every bit as good hot off the grill or griddle as it is when the shrimp are cooled down or even chilled.  Sitting […]

Cumin-Lime Shrimp with Ginger and Garlic Fried Rice

My friend Lorna said she thought I should focus some attention on seafood cookery. She’s convinced that most people don’t have a clue how to move beyond their one recipe for sword fish. Or tuna. Or flounder. That, when confronted with any other fish, they […]

Garlic Shrimp and Cannellini Beans adapted from Bon Appetit

         This is a one-pan wonder that comes together completely in just 30 minutes.  And in that time, Cannellini beans take on the rich flavor of a tomato sauce enriched with chiles and a single bay leaf.  There’s nothing bland about these beans! Then they’re […]
