VegetaIG0511_linguine-with-shrimp-scampi_s4x3.jpg.rend.snigalleryslideble oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt plus 1 1/2 teaspoons
3/4 pound linguine
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 1/2 tablespoons good olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic (4 cloves)
1 pound large shrimp (about 16 shrimp), peeled and deveined
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 lemon, zest grated
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
1/4 lemon, thinly sliced in half-rounds
1/8 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes

Drizzle some oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add 1 tablespoon of salt and the linguine, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or according to the directions on the package.
Meanwhile, in another large (12-inch), heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute. Be careful, the garlic burns easily! Add the shrimp, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat, add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon slices, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.
When the pasta is done, drain the cooked linguine and then put it back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss well, and serve.

Cashew Shrimp Stir-fry from thewoksoflife.com/

shrimp-cashews-8
8 oz. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 1/4 teaspoon sugar, divided
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch
salt and white pepper
4 stalks celery, sliced at a 45 degree angle
1/2 of a red bell pepper, sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons oil
2 slices ginger, minced
1 scallion, chopped
2 teaspoons oyster sauce
3/4 cup roasted cashews

First, prepare the shrimp. Toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon sugar, baking soda, and 1/4 cup water, gently mixing everything together for a couple minutes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours and then rinse under cold running water for 5 minutes to wash away any sugar and baking soda. Pat the shrimp dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Marinate the shrimp with 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pinch of white pepper and set aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Now, since the dish comes together very quickly, and you want to avoid overcooking the shrimp, it’s time to blanch the celery and red bell pepper. Bring a pot of water to a boil and drop the celery and red bell pepper in. After 30 seconds, drain the vegetables and shock them in ice water. Drain completely and set aside.

Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a wok over medium heat. Add the minced ginger and chopped scallion and cook for 1 minute. Then turn up the heat to high and add the shrimp. Once the shrimp have just begun to turn pink, add the blanched celery and red bell pepper, along with the last 1/4 teaspoon sugar, the oyster sauce, and the cashews. Mix everything well, and season to taste with salt and white pepper. Serve.

Note: It’s ideal to use roasted cashews for this recipe, but I only had raw cashews, so I just wok-roasted them for about 10 minutes. I’ve learned that cashews burn easily, so when roasting, start with a cold wok and medium low heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and then the cashews. Toast the cashews for about 10 minutes, stirring often and taking care not to burn them. Then spread them out and let cool until they’re ready to go into the dish.

Shrimp With Thai Basil from Chinatown Kitchen: From Noodles to Nuoc Cham.

 

  • 112 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or peanut oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large green or red chili pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut crosswise into thick rings

  • 1/2 cup packed sugar snap peas or snow peas, cut in half

Stir in the onion; increase the heat to high and stir-fry for 1 minute, until the peppers have softened a bit, making sure the garlic doesn’t burn.

Add the sugar snap peas or snow peas and the remaining 3 tablespoons of water; stir-fry until the water has evaporated. Add the shrimp; stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the fish sauce mixture, the tomatoes and basil; stir-fry, shaking the wok once or twice, just until the shrimp have become opaque and the tomatoes have barely wilted.

Penne Alla Betsy from Ree Drumond

WU0506H_penne-alla-betsy-recipe_s4x3.jpg.rend.sni12col.landscapeSalt
1 pound penne pasta
1 1/2 pounds large shrimp
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup white wine, optional
Two 14.5-ounce cans tomato sauce
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
6 leaves fresh basil, cut in chiffonade
Milk, for thinning
Freshly ground black pepper
Crusty French bread, for serving

Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the penne until al dente (firm yet tender). Drain and set aside.

Begin by peeling and deveining the shrimp and rinsing them under cold water.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. When the pan is hot, add the shrimp. Stir and cook on both sides until just starting to turn opaque, about 2 minutes. Remove to a plate and allow to cool slightly.

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the garlic and onion. Stir to combine and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.

Pour the wine into the pan if using. Stir and allow it to evaporate, about 45 seconds. Pour in the tomato sauce and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low. Pour in the cream. Mmmm. Stir well to combine; reduce the heat to simmer.

And now for the fun part: remove the tails from the shrimp, chop the shrimp into medium-size pieces and add them to the sauce. Stir gently to combine.

Next, dump in the parsley and basil and stir. Add the cooked, drained pasta. Stir gently to coat. If the sauce is too thick, splash in a little milk to get it to the right consistency. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper. Be sure to taste the seasonings at the end, adjusting if necessary.

Serve directly out of the skillet, or pour the contents of the skillet into a pretty serving bowl. Serve with crusty French bread – and more wine.

Shrimp Fried Rice w/ Thai Basil from woks of life

shrimp-fried-rice-152 cups broccoli florets
4 tablespoons oil, divided
8 oz. shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 cups cooked rice, cool and loosen
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon of shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon grounded white pepper
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup roughly chopped Thai basil

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch broccoli for 30 seconds and drain, rinsing under cold water to stop the cooking process.

Heat your wok over high heat until smoking slightly and add 2 tablespoons oil. Cook the shrimp, making sure to get a good sear, until just barely cooked through. Remove from the wok and set aside.

With the heat still on high, add another 2 tablespoons of oil and add the onion. Stir-fry for 2 minutes, until softened. Add the cooked rice to the wok, and mix, breaking up any large clumps of rice in the process. Add the fish sauce, shaoxing wine, sesame oil, soy sauces, salt and white pepper. Give everything a good stir.

Add the egg to the rice and stir rapidly, so that the egg cooks and forms a kind of glaze over each grain of rice. Add the broccoli and shrimp back to the pan, along with the Thai basil. Give everything a final stir for another minute or two, and serve. Yield: 4 servings
