1. Cajun Crawfish And Shrimp Etouffe

Cajun Crawfish And Shrimp Etouffe

An authentic Louisiana recipe with a rich and spicy fresh tomato based roux with fresh garlic, bell peppers, celery and onions mixed with crawfish and shrimp. A little time consuming but well worth it!! Serve over steamed rice with hushpuppies and/or crackers on the side.. A simply beautiful dish. Fun to prepare, beautiful presentation, and delicious. I'm a little concerned by some comments calling the preparation intimidating or a lot of work. It's not, but unfortunately this might dissuade others from trying it. I used butter rather than oil, all shrimp, clam juice for the fish stock, and no cayenne (hubby has sensitive innards). Even without the cayenne, it was still too hot for hubby, so he was unable to eat it. So just a warning--this is hot and spicy. If you're not sure about the level of heat, add less hot sauce to start--you can always add more, but can't take it away once it's in there! Oh--throw in a little chopped fresh parsley or green onion just before serving...the little punch of color really is pretty and brightens it up.. This recipe was very good. Very tasty!! It's very spicy. So, if you don't like your food too hot, you may want to cut back and use a little less cayenne pepper, black pepper, and hot sauce. Some recipes call for "corn starch." But I found the roux is much better - more flavorful. Roux can be tricky - take your time, don't set the heat/fire too high (you definitely don't want it to burn). Roux is worth the work. Also, I had never heard of "fish stock (soup)." But I found it at an Asian store named Seafood City. I found it in boullion cubes brand named "Knorr." Surprisingly they had fish flavor and shrimp flavor. I think the fish stock along with the roux really added to the flavor. I did not use the shrimp - I used all crawfish. Shrimp and crawfish each have there own flavor. I'll make the next batch with the shrimp. Try it. It's delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

How to make Cajun Crawfish And Shrimp Etouffe in Simple Way

1. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and stir constantly until the mixture turns 'peanut butter' brown or darker, at least 15 or 20 minutes. I use a large fork with the flat side to the bottom of the pan in a side to side motion. This is your base sauce or 'Roux'. It is very important to stir this constantly. If by chance the roux burns, discard and start over.
2. Once the roux is browned, add the onions, garlic, celery and bell pepper to the skillet, and saute for about 5 minutes to soften. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and fish stock, and season with the seafood seasoning. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Season the sauce with hot pepper sauce and cayenne pepper (if using), and add the crawfish and shrimp. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque.

2. Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

This actually uses my breading for Chicken Fried Steak---my husband suggested we try it with chicken breasts, and it was delicious!. Ok I changed this one up a bit. Like other reviewers I upped the garlic powder. I upped the seasoned bread crumbs omitting the flour and popped this in the oven and baked it. I have low tolerance for frying foods and I love that I don't have to mind the oven during cooking. Also I used Italian bread crumbs added some shredded Parmesan cheese omitted the paprika but added Italian spices and had Italian tasting chicken another night. Thanks for the post:-). Two words... OVEN FRY! Why not try to make this healthier and cut out some of the fat/cholesterol but not loose the wonderful fried taste. I soaked the chicken breasts in buttermilk for 2 hours and then I floured them, egged them and used the breadcrumb mixture last. I sprayed Pam on the breasts and I oven fried my chicken at 400 for about 25 minutes ( I hade 2 chicken breasts that were pounded thin) I cut mine into small pieces AFTER they were cooked and added it to a large garden salad.

3. Ratatouille Bake

Ratatouille Bake

This recipe was given to me by my aunt, who lives in Atlanta, Georgia. It tastes wonderful with your garden vegetables.. This is fantastic. I used half Fire-Roasted canned tomatoes and half fresh from the garden, and added mushrooms. Also used a 5-cheese blend instead of just mozzarella. I went to put the leftovers away and my family had demolished the whole casserole! Will definitely make again.. Very clever and delicious idea! I opened a can of pureed tomatoes instead of diced, so mine was more saucy than it should have been, but it worked. I used a smaller but deep casserole so I put a little sauce in the bottom, layer of ravioli, veggies and sauce, more ravioli and topped with the rest of the veggies and sauce, and cheese. While I love traditional ratatouille, I usually need to have something else with it as it's not too filling for me - the ravioli makes this a complete, and delicious, meal! Thanks for sharing!

4. Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Russet potatoes are blended with roasted garlic, butter and milk. This recipe is a standard.. These were SOOOOOO delicious. Everyone raved about the wonderful flavor. I used a small can of evaporated skim milk instead of regular milk to cut the fat but keep them creamy. I will definitely make these again and again!. These potatoes taste almost exactly like the ones my husband and I had on our honeymoon in Vegas...and let me tell you they cost a pretty penny. Absolutely wonderful. I will admit that if you are not a garlic lover, you may want to cut down on the is a bit strong, but it is just the way we like it. I also took another reviewer's advice and added some parmesan cheese to it...wonderful idea. Thanks for a great new side dish.

5. Chef John's Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

Chef John's Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

Spaghetti alla carbonara's creamy sauce is simply a thin egg and cheese custard, spiked with pork and black pepper. Try to find pancetta or guanciale (pork cheek cured like pancetta) for a really authentic taste!. I have never made this before and I think I made a big mistake by upping the servings to 8. There was waaay too much pasta to stir as instructed. Definately don't try to up the servings so much as I did! The people I made it for enjoyed it, but personally I wish I would have stuck with the actual recipe amt.. Spaghetti alla Carbonara is not difficult to make and requires just a few simple, but standard, required ingredients. It really does not vary much from one recipe to the next. This recipe is a fundamental, basic reference recipe. I find it a little easier to mix the (room temperature) egg and cheese in a bowl and then add the cooked pasta to that mixture (rather than the other way around). I stir in the cooked meat, be it guanciale, pancetta or bacon, at the end. Add a little of the pasta cooking water if the sauce seems a little dry – the dish should be creamy, but not swimming in sauce. I just returned from Italy, where I was lucky enough to enjoy this pasta dish with guanciale, which comes from the jowls of the pig. I admit it sounded unappealing when I first tried it years ago, but only because it was unfamiliar. It is the best and by comparison neither pancetta nor bacon measure up. Unfortunately, it is hard to find here in the states. In its absence I’ve used pancetta, as I did tonight, other times bacon, and I have to say that if I can’t have this with guanciale I prefer bacon over the pancetta. I found this recipe a little heavy on the cheese for my taste, so I backed off on it by about one-third. Nothing innovative about this recipe – but because this is a classic dish, it shouldn’t be.

6. Ricotta Gnocchi

Ricotta Gnocchi

This recipe was passed down to me from my great aunt, it is easy, authentic and delicious! The secret to making these gnocchi is to dry the ingredients as much as you can before using. Let the ricotta drain of excess water by placing it in a strainer over a bowl and leaving it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before using.. A huge hit with Mr P this evening, he definitely rates it as a keeper (he's now sitting groaning about how full he is, greedy gutbucket). Made exactly as per recipe - very easy and stunningly delicious results. Thank you for the recipe.. So good and easy! This was my second attempt at Gnocchi and far better than the first traditional recipe I tried. I used fresh garlic and added fresh basil and it was just fantstic. I skipped the sauce recipe and used my own recipe. My 18 month old could not get enough of them. Tomorrow I am going to make another batch and freeze them.

This is great as a party appetizer or a full meal. Tasty, full of flavor and good for you. The crunchy crust is what I really like! You can play with the veggie toppings and cheeses for a great meal that is fast and delicious! Our favorite quick meal!. I have been making variations on this for years. Great with plain pesto I use sundried tomatoes which are great, and often add artichokes and sweet red peppers too. It's so quick and easy and always a hit, both as a meal and as an appetizer. You can also make it with a tortilla base. It helps to bake the base a few minutes before putting on the toppings..

8. Caldo Verde (Portuguese Sausage Kale Soup)

Caldo Verde (Portuguese Sausage Kale Soup)

This soup is so hearty and comforting, you'll almost forget how good it is for you. And it's perfect for cold weather with the spicy sausage, kale, potatoes, and plenty of chicken broth.. Four stars because I changed it. I use white (cannellini) beans instead of potatoes, and my own home-made chicken broth with no salt added. Tasted and added salt as needed at the end. Like some others, I use kielbasa or smoked sausage because I find chorizo is a tad too salty and greasy for my taste.. This soup turned out great! That being said, I made several changes. I recommend cooking the sausage with garlic as well as onion. I didn't mash the potatoes, and because the soup was so thick, I added some water to the broth to stretch it out. I added pepper and cayenne to taste. The sausage can be cooked while you wait for the potatoes to boil to save time.

9. Pasta Fazool (Pasta E Fagioli)

Pasta Fazool (Pasta E Fagioli)

This classic Italian-American comfort food works with any kind of sausage, but I like the fennel and anise flavors of sweet Italian sausage with the beans--it's a hearty soup that's fast and easy to put together.. I have not had pasta fazool for ages, because it usually makes so much. This is perfect for a retired couple. I also added some crushed rosemary and boiled some ditalini noodles separately, a salad and some Italian bread. The Swiss Chard. if you can find it in your store, is a nice change from spinach. Thank You again Chef John.. I wish I could give this 10 stars! Absolutely LOVE it! My changes were spinach in lieu of swiss chard, ditalini in lieu of elbow and added more broth (used 32 oz.).

11. Get A Husband Brunswick Stew

Get A Husband Brunswick Stew

The thickest, most wonderful Brunswick Stew you've ever had. Those of you who've never had Brunswick Stew will just die.... If you've had it before, you won't believe it. Old family recipe and the best stew around!!!. I too am in VA, where brunswick stew becomes a household staple during hunting season. Scratch the ground meats, use pulled pork, roast or steak. Add a pkg. of frozen lima beans. Also switch to niblet corn (1 can) 2 cans cream corn. A little old bay definitely helps as well. This is a lot less expensive and much better tasting than the $10 pint we get from the Ruritan Clubs. Freezes beautifully.. I made this stew when having a large group over to eat outdoors. Cooked this in my cast iron dutch oven using charcole under the oven and on top of the lid. Every drop of this stew was eaten and I used a 12" oven! I did use 2 cans cream style corn and one can of whole kernel corn. So very good with cornbread!.

12. Spaghetti Aglio E Olio

Spaghetti Aglio E Olio

No two spaghetti aglio e olio recipes are alike, but this one is pretty true to the classic method. The key is slowly toasting the garlic slices to a perfect golden-brown in the olive oil. If it's too light, you don't get the full flavor and if it's too dark it gets bitter. My advice? Do it perfectly.. I made this after seeing it cooked on an Italian cooking show the other day. I have to be honest, this is way too oily for me. I think the servings on this recipe are incorrect also. As a lb of pasta is going to feed a minimum of 6 people. Even the bag said serves 8. At least I stretched groceries until the end of the week. Think, I will just stick to pasta with a little butter, similar to what I had growing up. It's basically the same concept. ty. Finished the whole thing!!! So good! Doubled the red pepper. Forgot the parsley, but it was still great. Too much olive oil, will cut in half next time.

13. Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

An old boyfriend's mother used to cook this for me whenever I ate over. Cheese tortellini are served in a creamy tomato and spinach sauce. I love it!. I thought this was very good. I did not use heavy cream, I used FF milk and used a bit of cornstarch to it so the sauce would thicken slightly. I also used fresh basil. I think that gives the dish a nice bright taste. I will make this again.. This was delicious!! I followed the recipe almost exactly- the only difference was I used italian diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano because I didnt have the one specified. Also I used 5 cloves of fresh garlic and minced it up. I think it could have used even more than that. Otherwise I followed everything and it turned out wonderful, My hubby loved it and my 1 year old ate a good amount of it too! It was a good way to sneak a veggie into him. I recommend this to everyone to try and will definatly make this again and again. Thanks for the recipe.

14. Frogmore Stew

Frogmore Stew

I've been using this recipe for over 20 years, ever since I moved to South Carolina. It can be adjusted to serve any number. Allow 2 tablespoons of seasoning per quart of water. If you cannot find hot smoked sausage, use another smoked sausage such as kielbasa and add crushed hot red pepper to the pot.. Shirley, Thanks for letting the rest of the world in on our little secret! I'm a native South Carolinian and have been makung this for special friends and special occasions for 30 years. I prefer to add two large onions and two bottles of beer at the beginning and have been known to throw in a few blue crabs. This is best served outdoors, along with plenty of napkins and adult beverages!. Nice! I cut this recipe as follows to serve four: 3 quarts of water just under ¼ cup Old Bay 1+ lb potatoes 1 lb andouille-style chicken sausage 4 ears of fresh corn 1 lb jumbo shrimp. I cooked the corn in advance, in another pot. At the end, I turned off the heat, added the (already cooked/frozen) shrimp and just let it heat through for the last 5 minutes. I had no idea what to expect with so few ingredients – the results were amazing. I had my parents over for dinner & we all LOVED IT. In a nod to tradition, I used newspaper as a tablecloth (but we ate out of bowls and I ate with my fingers). A fun evening!
