Question What are some interesting things to do with shrimp?

I was going to make a shrimpy garlic cream pasta, well i still will but ill still have a fair few shrimp left so i was thinking of trying something else sexy with the others!!

I can always go out and buy ingredients as I wouldnt be doing these for tonight.

To be more specific i'd prefer no rice or noodle dishes :( Just some bloody tasty shrimp.

So....
GO!

Last night at my house, noodles w/evoo, herb and pecorino sauce & sauted asparagus and proscuitto, with grilled shrimp and veggies on top. Really good, and done in 40 minutes. I always keep a bag of shrimp in the freezer. One of the most versatile quick ingredients available.

I've been eying this for a long time: Pasta with Shrimp and Sicilian Pesto

It looks amazing. I'll be trying something similar next week with peas instead of shrimp

And here I was going to suggest that taking them to the museum or sightseeing would be interesting.

But, if you are planning on eating them....well....then....why not thread them on sugar canes and grill them. Then, serve them with mango and coconut rum dipping sauce.

Wow, vyapti, copied and saved!

I have a deal with my Italian neighbors (twin sisters): They can take a lot of my prolific basil (I am the better gardener) if they will share some of their fabulous pesto with me (theirs is way better than mine, and I have no idea why!)

I will use their basil pesto, with a little garlic minced into it, for this recipe.

Looks wonderful!

BBQed shrimp if the peeling is intact...You will need bread for dipping, and a large napkin.
If they are peeled...Then Scampi or Quickly saute, and chill for a Shrimp Salad.....

Enjoy!

I recently had shrimp fajitas at a local Mexican haunt ... man were they good cooked with those vegies and spices. Not something I'd have thought of on my own, but I'll be doing it now!

one of our favorites is to first get plenty of fresh Italian bread and get it warm, then put 4-5 lbs of shrimp in a pan with sides sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper, a tiny bit of cayenne pour on some wine and add a cube of butter or two. Depends on your love of butter Add more pepper if you like spicy.We like a lot of butter and when mixed with the pepper and wine, just dunk your warm bread in there grab a shrimp and enjoy..Bake about 10 min at 400 or til shrimp are done the way you prefer.

It was actually posted long ago by someone here. The pesto has had me intrigued ever since. I'm considering reducing a veggie/tomato stock just for this. A basil sauce and sweet peas just sound really good to me. I'll do without the shrimp, though.
