| Had some shrimp from last season and some fresh wahoo and dolphin thanks to my friends Andipi and jack..so heres what we had for dinner..
wahoo and dolphin was marinated in a light italian dressing and grilled
and shrimp, fresh corn, red peppers and thai lime rice(with coconut milk, basil and lemongrass)(If i dont make it myself I use one by "tasty bite" from harris teeter--all natural )
here are pics..recipe follows..
Total: 30 Minutes
shrimp or scallops (1.5 -2 lbs)
Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons butter /2 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 red bell peppers (12 oz. total), rinsed, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
1 or 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1. Holding each ear of corn upright in a deep bowl, cut kernels from cobs. Rinse scallops and pat dry; sprinkle lightly all over with salt and pepper.
2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter with 1 tablespoon olive oil in each of two 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pans over high heat. Add corn, bell peppers, garlic, and cumin to one pan; add scallops to the other. Cook, stirring both pans often, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes, and scallops/shrimp are browned on the outside or done but not overcooked (cut to test), (about 5 minutes).
3. Just before serving, stir basil into the vegetable mixture and cilantro into theshrimp/ scallops. Add salt and pepper to taste to both. Mound vegetables in a wide, shallow dish or spoon rice on plate and top with mixture
there are many recipes and variations of the thai lime rice ..most are made with coconut milk,rice,little lime juice,lime zest..i like the one that has lemongrass in it too.
was yummy and plenty for lunch tommorow too
btw...pulled out parsley instead of cilantro..but caught that in time..and left out the shrooms when donnie came in a nd turned his nose up when he saw them..
