I'm looking for some new shrimp recipes.

What are your favorites?

Can you get fresh, head on shrimp? If so, try this:

New Orleans BBQ Shrimp Recipe : Emeril Lagasse : Food Network

The recipe in his New New Orleans book uses the heads as well as the shells. The fat from the heads makes the sauce incredible! Triple the biscuit recipe!

The biscuits mentioned are not the size in the book. I'll see if I can find a recipe and post it later.

This time of year I use them to make a shrimp roll similar to Addie's lobster rolls.

Cooked shrimp roughly chopped with celery, a little onion and some mayo in a toasted New England style hot dog roll served with chips and a pickle!

Rachael Ray has a great recipe for barbecued shrimp in lettuce cups: Rachael Ray's Official Website - Barbecued Shrimp in Lettuce Wraps

I'm not crazy about orange marmalade; I used something else in place of that but I can't remember now what it was. It might have been Raspberry Enlightenment from Penzey's: Spices at Penzeys Spices Raspberry Enlightenment

Cooked shrimp is excellent in gazpacho.

I've been making this recipe for a dozen years and it's a big favorite. When I don't have tasso on hand, I use prosciutto. It works as an appetizer or an entree.

We really like this one....great comfort food. I never liked grits, probably because all I could find was quick grits and they reminded me of cream of wheat. I found some coarse ground grits at Trader Joe's and loved them. Never saw them there again, sighhh.

That looks delicious. I've copied it as we have some tasso and crab that needs to be used up in the freezer.

I make shrimp and grits very similar to this except instead of mushrooms and green onions use red and green bell peppers and regular onions chopped in a large dice.

Other than baked, stuffed shrimp, my favorite is a very simple dish... sautéed shrimp and lemon pasta and broccoli. Sauté the shrimp in a little olive oil, fresh herbs, crushed garlic & juice of 1/2 lemon and white wine (I love dry vermouth). In a large pan (I use my 10" cast iron) start shrimp, add all but the broccoli and finish sautéing. Steam broccoli for 2-2-1/2 minutes, and toss with shrimp and put aside while you cook the pasta. I like whole wheat (or even quinoa) fettucine for this, (but a thin or angel hair spaghetti will do). When the pasta is done, toss it in with the shrimp & broccoli along with the juice of another 1/2 lemon while over a low heat. You might want to add a little more olive oil. Grate a little parmesan over the top when serving. Maybe a little fresh basil on the top for a little garnish.

I have a great recipe for Japanese Shrimp, Cucumber and Noodle Salad. This one is much simpler: Japanese Chilled Shrimp and Cucumber Salad Recipe at Cooking.com

I need to get some shrimp and make this with my bounty of cucumbers

Shrimp goes wonderfully well with tomato. The next time you make a tomato salad, add some shrimp that's been sauteed in butter and garlic. Or add shrimp to your next pasta salad. Shrimp is great in Sunday Gravy. Shrimp glazed with a little seasoned tomato juice works very well on the grill, kabob style.

I've been known to put shrimp, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, bok choy, onion, garlic, soy sauce, and ginger together as an egg roll filling. Serve with a good tomato-mustard sauce (using powdered mustard).

That panko-coconut shrimp mentioned above is fabulous. I also love to make shrimp tempura with pineapple sweet and sour sauce.

I once had this "burger" in San Diego where the shrimp was chopped, formed into a patty, seasoned, and served up on a burger bun. It was delicious. It was at a little restaurant on North Island Naval Air Station (I was a sailor back then). Sadly, I've never seen another one, anywhere.

I would think shrimp could be coupled with muscles, clams, tomato, and cheese on a pizza, especially if it was cooked over charcoal.

Shrimp kabobs glazed with chili powder and lime, or honey and lime.

I could go on, but I've just got to go.

I haven't had it, but found this recipe: Easy Caribbean Island Lime Shrimp Recipe

Here's a simpler version: Shrimp Margaritaville

The Best Thai Coconut Soup Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Thai coconut shrimp soup.

I do a riff on that by using lots of veggies (cabbage, snow peas, celery), cutting out the chicken stock and most of the coconut milk, to make a stir fry.

Serve either one with jasmine rice.
