Imrpovised recipe of the Day…

Variation on Shrimp Diablo:

Hungry and sick and in need of protein and spiciness, I have become quite resourceful. Put some linguini on to boil. In another saucepan, sauteed about 3 oz of cooked frozen shrimp in a little bit of olive oil and greek seasoning (could substitute garlic) along with a packet of red crushed peppers (garden variety pizza delivery packet)and some bell pepper strips. One could also add olives or mushrooms if one were so inclined. To this, I added about two cups of plain marina sauce and then simmered the whole thing for about 10 minutes until everything was warm. Served over 8oz or so of linguini, it has a nice bite to it, makes roughly three to four generous servings. Me, I’m doling it out to myself for lunches over the next couple of days. Remember, kids, you can always get a bag of medium tail off shrimp at Trader Joe’s for $4.99 to keep in your freezer for your stir-frying enjoyment. And one could also do this with leftover cooked fish or chicken or pork cut into nice little strips. Or clams,for that matter…
