Ruby Tuesday / Dinner With TCR! January 5, 2010

Let’s kill two birds with one stone, shall we?

My dinner postings have been scarce lately (I know, “Long time no sea(food!)”) and it’s officially Tuesday, so I’m calling the little bit of red in these shots sufficient to justify this dual-category post.

The ingredients:

Gigunzo Shrimp, marinated in lime juice, garlic and cayenne pepper; whole-kernel corn, fresh tomatoes, blanched and peeled, a diced Serrano chile, about a bulb of coarsly-chopped garlic and a handfull of basil, all organic, and a bag of black squid-ink pasta.

The result:

Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Veggies over Black Fettuccine.

Enjoy!  😉

You do know how to get me thinking about food — not just any food, you understand! Looks fantastic and I’m suddenly starving! Hope you’ve had a great holiday season, CR, wish only the good and beautiful things for you and yours!

Thanks, Sylvia, and the same to you! 🙂

I got a watery mouth from the glossy ( olive oil?) food pictures.
Delicious. I’m going to make a sea food dinner myself today. I just might steal some ideas, though I never heard of or tasted black fettuccine.

very pretty looking-even for a seafood hater like me! ; )

A serious gourmand I am seeing. The huge shrimp take the heat on the outside while remaining sweet at its core. Hot and mild, savory yet sweet. What time should I arrive???

That’s an interesting combo – is the lime “cooking” the shrimp, or did you also sauté it?

Ten, I think the Big Boys are beyond ceviche, though I considered doing that. They marinated for about an hour, split and deveined with their shells on, in lemon and lime juice with garlic and cayenne pepper, then got sauteed in olive oil at very high heat, adding the marinade as the pan cooked dry. I didn’t deglaze because I wanted (and got) a flame-grilled flavor, and the pan stickings went pretty black.

Came out good, though.

Oh, and Fellow Ralph, you’re close enough so that we might have to actually think about that!

Those shrimp look de-lish!

Monounsaturated fatty acids are found in high amounts in nuts and oils, such as olive oil and vegetable oil. They can also be found in meat and dairy products. Although monounsaturated fats are present in a wide variety of foods, olive oil is perhaps the most acclaimed source of these beneficial fats.’
