Over the years, we’ve pretty much fell into a habit of eating the same foods the same way. For example shrimp were pretty much always breaded and deep fried. But thanks to all of the great ideas from the blogs I read, we are expanding our horizons.
The other day Mary over at Deep South Dish posted a recipe for stuffed shrimp and it just so happens we had shrimp in the freezer and I had bought some crab to make into crab cakes – so stuffed shrimp it was. I followed her recipe except I used Townhouse crackers and we laid a piece of bacon on a few of them for a test. I’m not sure I could tell the bacon had much of an impact. Mary's site has a good description and pic's of the process. Depending on your oven and how done you like your shrimp, you may need to adjust the cooking time a little - Bev likes her's cooked more than me so they required more time.
We thought the shrimp were delicious and we served them with some of Mary’s Mississippi Comeback sauce. Thanks Mary for a delicious meal.
For a side dish, it was Rice a Roni dish that was quite tasty. She used the boxed mix and added a 16 oz bag of thawed broccoli and some grated parmesan to it – a 10 oz box of broccoli might have been better.
Here's my plate
Don't hesitate to make extra shrimps as I just had the leftovers reheated in the micowave for lunch and they are still real tasty.
Thanks bloggers for all the great recipes. Have a great day.
