Seafood gumbo loaded with shrimp, such as this classic Cajun recipe, screams for a cold beer and a lazy weekend afternoon dedicated to nothing but cooking.
Creamy Southern stone-ground grits with Cheddar cheese, plump sauteed shrimp, crisp bacon, garlic, and scallions.
The elusive lilt of lemongrass. The sour, puckery smack of tamarind. The warm-your-belly pervasiveness of galangal. The unmistakable funk of fish sauce. All in this exquisitely authentic Thai soup.
Say the word “bayou,” and we conjure romantic notions of swampy marshlands, banjo playing, and, natch, the best Cajun fried shrimp.
Quick, easy, healthful, spectacular in terms of taste, and maybe even able to lower your husband’s cholesterol. Anything else?
Commercial tartar sauce tends to be crammed full of sugar and corn syrup and preservatives. Not this little homemade lovely.
Whether you need a no-fail romantic dinner for two or an impressive dinner party for more, here’s how to pull it off.
Easy, healthy, on the table in minutes, and spiked with just the right amount of spice to intrigue but not overwhelm.
This simple summer crowd-pleaser has “easy entertaining” scrawled all over it. (Pssst. Don’t forget the bottle opener.)
Scared of fish? We understand. Actually, it’s not the fish that scares most folks. It’s the cooking of said fish. But not anymore.
Maybe you’ve had grilled fish tacos. But have you had tipsy fish tacos that are suffused with tequila? That’s what we thought.
Nothing is more romantic than cooking grilled trout in the open air. Well, maybe that’s a stretch. Still, it’s a damn good recipe.
Street food at its finest. (This is the real deal, straight from Malaysia by way of this recipe and your local Asian grocery store.)
Far from penance, this lovely lentil-crusted fried fish is stealthy healthy as well as overtly impressive.
