Singapore Noodles The Oriental Gourmet Way

Singapore Noodles The Oriental Gourmet Way

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. I do not know the official way to sling Singapore noodles, but the results from this recipe are spot on with my buffett favorite therefore providing you with a quick, simply delicious Asian style meal.

Spanish Flies

Spanish Flies

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.

TexMex Fish Tacos (crispy)

TexMex Fish Tacos (crispy)

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…

Supreme Tuna Sandwich

Supreme Tuna Sandwich

Spicy tuna spiked with myriad of goodies so good it feels illegal. Normally I go with more mayonnaise (for wet) but this time I choked back and relied on the olive oil packed with the tuna.

Blackbeard’s Grilled Shrimp and Fish Sandwich

Blackbeard’s Grilled Shrimp and Fish Sandwich

Super simple clean cajun sandwich named after Blackbeard because. Pirates didn’t use fryers on the ship. I mean, can you imagine the on the job injuries with fryers sloshing hot grease all over the damn deck? Insurance would skyrocket…

Grilled Bacon Shrimp Asian Persuasion

Grilled Bacon Shrimp Asian Persuasion

This is a nice little Asian dish for a simple 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. I used a store-bought sweet and sour sauce. Was going to use Pepper Bee but

Charlie’s Baked

Charlie’s Baked

Just a little note because I have nothing entertaining to say, nothing I buy has the words fat free. However, I will buy real olive oil over vegetable oil. Around here a product is bought with the least amount of scientist involved as possible. Although this particular recipe is better on the ass it’s products were bought for pure.

Shrimp Enchiladas

Shrimp Enchiladas

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

Shrimp-n-Grits Nicker Dropper

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.

Grilled Shrimp Wah Ha! Nachos

Grilled Shrimp Wah Ha! Nachos

Anyways, I went to visit him in Austin and he made a pico I thought was way too Cali. “Mango’s in pico, get the hell outa here”. One taste shut me up.. This is a recipe rob of what I remember from that life changing day.

Shrimp n Scallop Bacon Infused Lasagna

Shrimp n Scallop Bacon Infused Lasagna

Maybe I could have started before starving, who knows. It’s been in 2 more feedings since then and all I can say is Yaaas!!! More on the dadgum noodles down the line.

Gumbo Mojo Hojo

Gumbo Mojo Hojo

A couple three things to get right with gumbo is your roux, okra prep (if using), and my Aunt says you can never have too many onions. I agree and will jabber down the page.

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

Pigtail Pasta Shrimped

Pigtail Pasta Shrimped

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 and Twisted Dirty Rice

Cajun Grilled Shrimp and Twisted Dirty Rice

These jumbo grill 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. Not much frying around here because of 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

Had never heard of but going to name my 1st born after because in my mind it tasted like a swimming crab. I posted an image of the dinner on a social and someone chimed in about the shady-ness of the Swai.

Shrimp By The Three Cheesed Pasta Shells

Shrimp By The Three Cheesed Pasta Shells

You could totally skip the shrimp part on this one if you were going to an office “bring a dish” party and you don’t like your boss. If you’re looking for a promotion add the shrimp… Better yet

Shrimp and Grits Casserole

Shrimp and Grits Casserole

In fact this was my 1st. They are pretty quick, easy, and cheap to build. Not sure what’s in true southern shrimp n grits but this one has cheddar, shrimp, garlic, green onion, and bacon. Wish I had made more.

Angelic Grilled Shrimp and Sketty

Angelic Grilled Shrimp and Sketty

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 doesn’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.

Mango Shrimp Salad

Mango Shrimp Salad

The shrimp used are frozen Gulf of Mexico wild caught from my local grocer they run for about $6.00. The shrimp were cooked in our seasoning Cluck which gives off a chicken flavor.

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Steak

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Steak

The salad is identical to our Mango Shrimp Salad and using queso fresco cheese instead of shredded colby. Well, and it’s a wilted salad if you dig it that way too.. To get this dinner to the table takes no time at all however, you do have to plan a day before.
