Do we love shrimp…yes we do. And scampi…….oh yes…that is one of my favorites. And pasta...oh yeah....these two are a perfect marriage.
Here is a version of scampi with tomatoes from Tyler Florence’s cookbook, Stirring the Pot, as it was recommended by Kim (whose blog is called Stirring the Pot).
We were all very pleased. Served it with warm bread and fresh pesto.........
Please see Kim's post with her Tyler recipe HERE
All three of us loved this version of shrimp scampi and it will certainly be repeated. Wish I had known about the cooking club when Tyler was the featured chef. This book has some great looking recipes which I can’t wait to try.
My son had his over fettuccine in a giant bowl........
Hopefully this won’t be my last meal with shrimp as the main star. The funny thing about me and shrimp is….if I peel the shells off when it’s raw, I get a rash. Used to be it made a small red rash on my hand but more recently the rash appears on my neck, hands and my scalp starts itching. I know, I know…this should a major clue that I have a shellfish allergy.
But I don’t have any problem eating cooked shrimp. Doesn’t matter if it’s boiled, steamed, fried, sautéed….I never have a rash or shortness of breath.
It was brought to my attention today (after mentioning the rash) that I may be building up to a reaction, such as anaphylactic shock. Maybe the toxicity is building and I am blissfully unaware….so, I guess I’ll mention that to my doctor soon….
In the meantime...if the guys will peel the raw shrimp....I am going to eat the cooked results. Any thoughts from you all are appreciated, especially if you've had experience with the symptoms.
But enough of that talk....try some of the recipes from Tyler's book if you have not done so already. It's packed with delicious creations.
