We got Chinese takeout Saturday, so I repurposed the leftovers for tonight's dinner. I made a veggie stir-fry with fresh onions, celery and bell peppers with brown sauce and mixed in the orange chicken and boneless ribs. I served it over reheated pork fried rice to which I added soy sauce, ginger-flavored sherry and sesame oil. Not bad

Andy, this sounds so good and is one of my favorite ways to have shrimp - roasted or grilled in the shell, and peel and eat at the table. I'm more than willing to have a damp tea towel in a bowl at the table to clean my fingers in order to have that extra flavor and tenderness from cooking those lovelies shell-on. My family doesn't agree. I'd probably skip the anise because I'm not a fan, but that's just me.

I save the shells and throw them in a ziplock in the freezer, hoping to make a killer broth sometime for a seafood soup or stew.

Cheryl, I'm not a fan of anise either but it's not objectionable in this recipe. I am mostly opposed to presenting food to guests that they have to work to eat. So I typically don't leave shrimp tails or shells on for presentation. This is a different type of dish that's intended as finger food.

I save all my plain shrimp shells too. But not these as they are too highly seasoned.

Oh yes, for guests I wouldn't serve shell-on, either.

Beth, have you & DH met up with K and SC yet?
Just dying to know...

Himself said he had a taste for a grilled cheese sandwich. I guess I've been making too many fancy-pants dinners lately! We those (mine with tomato) plus salads and some of the leftover ham-and-bean soup.

Joey - Wow that looks great. I have a question. How did you cook the steak? I saw an article a few weeks past that used the oven at 210 F for something like 90 minutes and then seared over a charcoal chimney. Very interested on your experience.
