Shrimp Fried Rice is one of our favorite dishes when we get take-out. After the success of our Japanese Steakhouse Fried Rice, we decided to tackle our other favorite fried rice recipe. Like our other fried rice recipe, this one uses day old rice and cooks super fast. The fried rice that you get from take-out utilizes smaller sized shrimp, but we used full size shrimp to turn this side dish into an entree! Check out our recipe below.
My father-in-law is a huge fan of fried shrimp. The last time he came to visit we decided to dust off the deep fryer and make some fried shrimp. We started with some fresh shrimp, dredged them in egg wash and coated them with bbq rub seasoned bread crumbs. The results were fantastic! The tastiest shrimp that I have ever had!

The weather is finally making a turn for the better. It is about time that spring has finally sprung upon us. To celebrate spring, I picked up a few lobster tails on special. I usually skewer the tails but decided to cook them in a different way. In this method I completely split the shells opening up more area to char on the grill. It imparts the most smoke flavor to the lobster that I have found. Plus it is simple, quick and delicious! Did I mention it is easy to eat! If you are looking for a great recipe with a more elaborate presentation, check out my how to grill lobster tails post.
Growing up, my family loved to hit up Red Lobster. Red Lobster is famous for cheddar biscuits, shrimp scampi and bringing seafood to the Midwest. Who wouldn’t love it. My favorite thing on the menu was the shrimp scampi. Not a traditional scampi, but a scampi inspired dish that was pure shrimp and no noodles. The other day my Father asked me if I could recreate it. I accepted the challenge and here it is.
I am always looking for quick and delicious dishes for weekday meals. So I find that a good stir-fry is awesome! I had some shrimp lying around and mixed together a great stir-fry that I had to share with you guys. It has a nice spicy garlic sauce that hits all areas of your taste … Read moreShrimp Stir-fry
I recently went to the closing of a local bookstore and picked up a copy of Jim Tarantino’s Marinades, Rubs, Brines, Cures & Glazes. It is a great book, but near the end in the Asian section he had a great recipe for Honey and Sake Glazed Shrimp. This sounded amazing to me. So I went to the store and picked up some sweet sake and wildflower honey. I figured, the best ingredients could only make this better. After making this recipe, I determined that this was one of the best shrimp dishes that I have ever made.
The other day I was looking for something healthy to eat. I could not find anything in the house. So I decided to venture out to the store. There I found some nice fresh Haddock. From there the search was on. What to make. It has been extremely cold outside, so stew sounded fantastic. I … Read morePortuguese Fish Stew
DC is really close to the Chesapeake Bay. So in turn it means that we have a lot of fresh crabs and a lot of fresh crab meat around here. The other day I went to the store and they had backfin blue crab on sale for $9.99 a pound. Basically a steal no matter where you … Read moreCrab Cakes
Happy Memorial Day! I just want to give a quick shout out to all of the Veterans out there that have served this country. Thank you very much for all that you have done. The United States would be nothing without you. Thanks again.
Last weekend Nick from Macheesmo came over for a great day of grilling. We ate like kings. The first dish of the day was grilled lobster rolls. Every once in a while you will find lobster on sale. Who would have thunk it. However, I got a great deal, two 5oz lobster tails for $5.99. With prices like that I see how Red Lobster stays in business. The key to a great lobster roll is the second half of the title, the roll. Purchase uncut hot dog buns, trim the sides so that they are flat and exposed, and then slice it right down the middle starting from the top. The top cut roll, is key to a lobster roll.
This past weekend Nick from Macheesmo came over to grill out. I grilled, he grilled and we ate incredibly well. One of my courses was Salmon with Mango Salsa. Perfectly grilled salmon with a fresh salsa over the top. It does not get any better than that. Plus, this post is my world wide debut on YouTube. Yep, I got a little flash camera and decided to become a video star. You will see the video a little later in the post when I teach the finer points of dicing a mango. This post is full of awesome information. I also included the easiest way ever to cook a salmon filet. So easy an infant could do it, well if they had enough arm strength to hold a spatula and flip a piece of fish. Basically, it is really easy.
The salsa added a nice fresh crunch and the Jalapeno added a nice little bit of heat.
So I went to the store today and they had a deal on Sea Scallops. They were 8.99 a pound. A steal if you ask me. So I picked up 10 scallops for dinner. I wanted to try something a little different so I made a BBQ sauce for them out of Hoisin Sauce and Orange Juice.
Served over a pile of couscous this was a great meal.
