I’ve been so busy eating and cooking and eating and eating…..I haven’t been writing about it. Much of my cooking has been taking what was left and making into something new, something fresh, something different…..
Like leftover shrimp from Christmas Day….
As much as I love just picking and dunking shrimp to cocktail sauce…..and then thinking
“Is it TRUE that shrimp cocktail came about because of Prohibition?”
Or was that FRUIT cocktail????
I wanted a hot meal, but since the shrimp was already cooked, it just needed to be a re-heat element.
But I had pulled this book off the shelf, and sure as shooting – shrimp!
Citrus in Season
Chili Lime Shrimp with Rice
Coconut Black Beans
Since this was a light supper, I made a few revisions:
Chili Lime Rice with Shrimp (and coconut)
I made some rice, adding the zest of the lime and some hot pepper. When the rice was done I added the naked shrimp, chopped, and bit of coconut and served it in a rice bowl with a squeeze of the the now naked lime – note to self – next time squeeze citrus first and then zest.
Anne also quotes Harry Nilsson… you know
which make me think of
The Shrimp Girl is a painting by the English artist William Hogarth. It was painted around 1740–45, and is held by the National Gallery, London.
