8 ounces medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more, to taste
1/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9-inch baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pink, about 2 minutes. Stir in wine and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Bring to a simmer; remove from heat and stir in cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, parsley, 1/4 cup mozzarella and Parmesan.
Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. Place into oven and bake until bubbly and golden, about 10-12 minutes.
6 ears corn
1/2 red onion, minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup crumbled cotija cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro
Zest of 2 limes
Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat until hot, and then add the corn and char on all sides, turning occasionally, until blackened in parts, 12 to 15 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut the kernels off the cobs.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and saute the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the charred corn kernels and cook until warmed. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese, the mayonnaise, cilantro and lime zest. Season with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the chipotle salt.
Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cotija cheese.
Cook’s Note: This recipe is great with an added squeeze of fresh lime juice.
