  1. Subtle Seductive Shrimp Scampi

    This shrimp scampi recipe is one of the most popular recipe.

    An easy recipe for shrimp scampi, made with shrimp, garlic, butter, and a little white wine and lemon juice.


    * 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp (about 16 to 24)
    * 1/3 cup clarified butter
    * 4 tablespoons minced garlic
    * 6 green onions, thinly sliced
    * 1/4 cup dry white wine
    * 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh if possible
    * 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    * salt and pepper, to taste

    Rinse shrimp and set aside. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic 1 or 2 minutes or until softened but not browned. Add shrimp, green onions, wine and lemon juice; cook until shrimp are pink and firm, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Do not overcook. Add chopped parsley and salt and pepper before serving. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley sprigs if desired.

    Bon appetit!

  2. Try this heavenly jam, with the subtle undertone of cinnamon. It's delicious!

    7 cups sugar
    5 cups coarsely ground peeled plums (about 2-1/2 pounds)
    1/2 cup water
    1/3 cup bottled lemon juice
    1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    In a Dutch oven, combine sugars, plums, water and lemon juice. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin; return to a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in cinnamon. Skim off foam.

  3. I always think that the addition of garlic is subtle. No, really! Rather than have an overwhelming flavour of its own, it brings out the flavour of the other ingredients.

    Ok, you don't believe me. Oh well.
