Ravioli Crab & Shrimp Stuffed

Ravioli Crab & Shrimp Stuffed

Great recipe with a little extra work ahead depending on if you’re making the ravioli. The sauce is hopped up with shrimp so it’s a little extra compared to a tomato cream sauce. There’s basically 3 ways to get ravioli on the plate: pre-made, pre-made pasta sheets, and you…

I used to get Singapore noodles at a buffet for years when I lived at my other place but, The Oriental Gourmet closed and I was left in the cold. This recipe was made to match OG’s way.

Pretty good, If you notice in the pic I left the heads and tails on. Next time the heads and tails gotta go. I don’t care how pretty it is because it’s a not pretty getting them off at the end. Anyways, these Spanish Flies are based on next time without heads or tails.

Crispy fish tacos enhance the delicious delicate flavors from the fish. Soft corn tortillas tastes like raw grits. I never say “I’ll have what she’s having” if she’s ordered the fish tacos…

Spicy tuna spiked with myriad of goodies so good it feels illegal. Normally I go with more mayonnaise but this time I choked back and relied on the olive oil not squeezed out packed in with the tuna.

Grilled Bacon Shrimp Asian Persuasion

Bacon wrapped shrimp as a sweet little Asian dish for a pure light, quick evening cook. It’s a lot like stir fry except the only real difference is that I made it all on the grill. Used a store-bought sweet and sour sauce.

Made some enchiladas the other night that had great flavor but could use an extra tweak. Sometimes I do get tired of the sauces and this was the night I was refusing them.

Shrimp-n-Grits Nicker Dropper

Another way to make some shrimp and grits different from the other one I did. Don’t remember how I did them but they were awesome. Well, these may be awesomer. They are awesomer in prep work that’s for sure.

Gumbo Mojo Hojo

Gumbo Mojo Hojo

Don’t use tomatoes in gumbo as a preference and in general, think it pulls the dish over to a Shrimp Creole. You can add or subtract what you like.

Fajita Shrimps Boats

Fajita Shrimps Boats

These sammies are really good but I swung and missed a couple times making them. Confessions… If using fajita meat it is important to fillet all the membrane off the meat. A lot of cuts of beef will work with this but

Shrimp Pasta

Shrimp Pasta

Sort of a kitchen sink dinner it turned out better than expected. It’s a cross of Alfredo sauce and regular ole garlic butter sauce, but you won’t have much sauce at all when done. Small pot, large pan, and a plate yer good to go.

Cajun Grilled Shrimp

Cajun Grilled Shrimp

These jumbo grilled Gulf Coast shrimp turned out mighty fine and very simple to cook. If you can’t find head-on shrimp or gulf shrimp it’s fine to use what’s available. Honestly, it’s a cleaner eating experience removing heads and tails when shelling.

Fish Tacos Southern Mango Boom

Fish Tacos Southern Mango Boom

Mango’s are already tasty around here and pretty easy to pick out the goods ones. I’m not a fan of frying because of the cleanup but when it happens it’s usually done with a tempura style batter tweaked with our typical twist.

Gulf-n-Grass Pina Colada Sticks

Gulf-n-Grass Pina Colada Sticks

Shrimp and fajitas wrapped in bacon and tropicaltized? I’m in! Will lay this build out in one because you’ll be going from sauce to sticks back to sauce and all at same time at times. Not hard, hardest part is building sticks. Anyways, pineapple will tenderize fajita meat like..

Grilled Swai The Mysterious Fish

Grilled Swai The Mysterious Fish

The creamy white sauce is a little different from Parmigiano typically used in alfredo sauces. Used Oaxaca cheese, browned garlic, and shrimp pieces as a part of it. I usually never veer from parm but did this time, and it worked out great. If you don’t have access to Oaxaca cheese

Cajun Shrimp on Pasta Shells

Cajun Shrimp on Pasta Shells

Three cheese pasta shells and some shrimp love turned out pretty good. It’s a crappy pic but worth the labor. Chicken (cooked) substituted for the shrimp would turn out mighty fine.

Nice white sauce a little different from Parmigiano typically used in Alfredo sauces. Used Oaxaca cheese, browned garlic, and shrimp pieces as a part of it. I usually never veer from parm but did this time and it worked out great.

Lobster and Shrimp Baguette Caps

Lobster and Shrimp Baguette Caps

Whatever reason my crab dealer didn’t have pealed crab in stock. Suspect it’s a seasonal thing but looking around their stash I noticed “lobster head” meat. It was pretty cheap at about 6 bucks + for approximately 2 cups.
