Jumbo Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe

04.16.14 by Jackie

This is, in my opinion, one of the most decadent seafood dishes I like to prepare whenever we host a fancy dinner party. We recently did, so I selected jumbo shrimp, dried black mushrooms, broccolini, beech mushrooms, King oyster mushrooms and green onions. I learned the tricks of the trade from Aunt Danielle. As I've mentioned before, Aunt Danielle is an amazing cook; she used to run a successful Vietnamese restaurant in the early 90s. She taught me a lot of staple Vietnamese dishes to cook when I first got married.

The secret is to use the corals from the inside of the shrimp heads to make the flavorful sauce.  In addition to this, I made the fragrant sauce called "satế," with garlic, galangal, soy sauce and plenty of fresh chiles. It's quite labor-intensive but well worth it. If your guests like seafood, they should be prepared for a feast!

Shrimp and Quinoa

02.20.14 by Jackie

This gluten free dish has been my kind of light meal recently. My doctor is trying to find out if I suffer from any food allergies, which I find kind of ironic, given my love of cooking. Today for lunch I prepared this meal quickly by mixing quinoa, Asian greens (you could use kale or spinach), straw mushrooms and shrimp. I flavored the shrimp with a plum sauce and a bit of soy sauce. You wouldn't believe how delicious this was!

I like having a one-dish meal, which is convenient to eat. Baby Aria usually likes munching on the food I eat, so I was so pleased to see she likes shrimp now. Also, I've been trying to stay away from carbs so quinoa is the perfect fit for my new diet.
