My dh LOVES shrimp. And it's so low in fat, and good for you, I wanted to learn some shrimp dishes.

Does anyone have any good shrimp recipies?

Of course, the all-time easiest shrimp recipe: mince a head of garlic (yes, a head - add more if you really like garlic). Sautee garlic in a couple tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat until soft and starting to lightly color. Turn up heat to medium-high and add a pound or so of cleaned shrimp. Sautee about four or five minutes, tossing, till shrimp just turns pink and opaque. Add minced parsley, stir, add freshly ground black pepper and salt, and serve over pasta or rice.

That does sound YUMMY. I do a scampi that is similar, but yours sounds better.

Anyone have any other ones? Like a ginger shrimp or anything?

Sweet and sour shrimp.

Cook rice.

Cut up a pepper and onion. Mince about 2 cloves of garlic.

Get a can of pineapple (fresh if you're using a fresh one but catch the juice.

Drain the juice in a bowl. Add some soy sauce, dried red pepper, hot sauce, and a tablespoon of corn startch.

Stir fry veggies.

Add shrimp and pineapple.

Add the juice mixture.

It will thicken.

Serve over rice.

Shrimp fried rice.

Use leftover veggies, rice, small shrimp (whatever you have around)(What works for us is pepper, peas, carrots, brocolli, snowpeas, onions, mushrooms)

Stri fry together. Add soy sause.

Very simple, just like that!

My DH makes skewers of shrimp, potato, mushrooms, onions, bastes with olive oil and seasoning ( we use Old Bay seasoning) and grills them. Kids love skewers!

Ginger shrimp would be: Clean the shrimp to your liking (everyone seems to do it differently)

On med high heat put 1-2 tbs oil

add 2-5 minced cloves of garlic

and as much fresh ginger, sliced into thin tiny little sticks, as you like

cook this till its smelling good but not browning then

throw in the shrimp, stir-fry till they're about 3/4 red in color

add a couple dashes of fish sauce and soy sauce stir a bit more

and pull it off the heat and onto the serving dish.

Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if you like and or fresh chopped green onions.

Sigh, I love fast cookin'.

There's also Tom Yum Goong (Thai sour soup with shrimp) This is country style--my preferred way over the red "restaurant style"

Boil a med large pot of water.

Add:

1-2 stalks of fresh lemon grass--trim the outer layer of grass and cut off the greenest stuff. Smack the white head with a large knife hard enough to smoosh it somewhat (this releases the oils) then cut the stalk into 6 pieces

a inch sized piece of fresh galenga (sometimes spelled galengal)--slices this into fourths and smack those too not hard enough to break apart but enough to split

a whole shallot or 2--peeled then cut in two and also smacked

a few kaffir lime leaves if you can get them--dried is ok here

When all the herbs are cooked well (the shallot will be purple, galenga soft) add shrimp then salt to taste. Cook again till the shrimp are just turning red. (they will finish cooking in the pan or bowl--ya don't want to overcook)

Then squeeze a lime into the serving bowl and pour the soup into it.

Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if you like and or fresh tomatoes quartered

You can pick out the herbs before serving if you like.

Play around with salt and the lime juice to get the taste right.
