Wasabi Broiled Black Cod Recipe : Rachael Ray. Kung Pao Shrimp. Ok, I’ll be honest.

Kung Pao Shrimp

I have no idea if this really qualifies as “kung pao” anything. I just really like that phrase. Bring me to a PF Chang’s or any Chinese restaurant and you’d be pretty safe making a bet I’ll order something with those words in front of it. It’s fun to say, it’s spicy and it’s one of the few Chinese dishes that doesn’t have at least one rando ingredient that makes you question what you’re chewing. I get stumped on lunch a lot. I’m always super skeptical about the turnaround time for Chinese food.

I take all the skepticism back though after this. It’s spicy, sweet and salty and I guarantee you’ll be licking the sauce off your fingers. Kung pao shrimp Sweet, spicy and salty kung pao shrimp made in minutes. Author: Gina Matsoukas. Bang Bang Shrimp. The one and only time I ate at a Bonefish Grill was about 5 years ago on a work trip in North Carolina.

Bang Bang Shrimp

We went to Carrabba’s the night before and I believe we wrapped the trip up with Applebee’s on our way to the airport. My idea of food hell, most of my coworker’s idea of a good meal. When someone suggested an appetizer of fried calamari at Carrabba’s the first night and one of my coworkers looked at her like she had 5 heads having never heard of calamari before, that’s when I knew it was going to be a fun meal. I have no idea what rock he spent the first 23 years of his life living under but I sure as heck tried to find out during dinner. The answer? Southern Jersey. It’s funny how vividly I remember that trip which is one of maybe 100+ over the past 5 years all involving shitty chain restaurant meals but between the calamari incident and the Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish, it sticks out in my head. Those shrimp were appropriately named because 5 years later I still think about them. Ragout of Clams with Spinach, Sausage and Orzo Recipe - Andrew Zimmern.

Recipe for Spicy Shrimp Sandwich with Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise at Life

Ryan loves them. He loves sub sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, roast beef sandwiches, meatloaf sandwiches, meatball sandwiches…I could go on and on. I on the other hand am not a huge fan. With that said, I will admit that after making and eating this sandwich I dreamed about it and craved it for the next few days. The spicy shrimp, the creamy chipotle avocado mayonnaise, the crunchy bread and crisp lettuce is enough to make anyone a sandwich fan. Avocados alone are pretty creamy so I was a little hesitant to mix them with mayonnaise but seriously, the result was like avocado heaven. Sesame Seared Tuna with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette. Sunday, April 26, 2009 In conjunction with my podcast with Michael Ruhlman’s Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking.

Sesame Seared Tuna with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette

And true to the book’s goal, I didn’t use a recipe to develop the Lime-Ginger Vinaigrette for the Sesame Seared Tuna. After a quick check in the refrigerator, I had one good key lime and a nub of ginger…so following Ruhlman’s ratio for 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar, I whisked together this concoction.

Yes, maybe you already know a vinaigrette’s 3:1 ratio, but how about a ratio for Hollandaise, Pizza Dough, Crepe, Sausage, Brine, Custards, Caramel Sauce, Pound Cake, Biscuit Dough plus 22 more formulas?
