Specially when you add it to a salad or in pasta..
gota watch out for the salad dressing though..
the calorie content is a dozy.. personally I love
fat free CHUNKY blue cheese.. YUM!!
Shrimp is my favorite food! I love it boiled, fried, sauteed or grilled. No other food compares - it so good with a little shrimp sauce. My mouth is watering..
Shrimp with blue cheese dressing? Have you ever had shrimp? Or blue cheese dressing?
I agree with you! I love Shrimp no matter how it is prepared.
And Blue Cheese...even better with Hot Wings.
I love shrimp fried in garlic and smothered over a nice medium rare steak.
Shrimp is one of my favorite foods, in fact having some tonight. Feel bad for those who cant eat it because of allergies.
We are not sure is cholesterol is good or bad this week, screw it anyway, they taste superb!
Don't be afraid of cholesterol in shrimp. Shrimp is high in the "good cholesterol". See link and excerpt below.
http://www.foodmarketexchange.com/datac … drains.htm
We now know that the amount of cholesterol in shrimp is approximately 130 mg per 3 oz of raw shrimp, or about 12 large shrimp, and with only 2 grams of fat. The amount of cholesterol in a comparable portion of regular ground beef is about 110 mg, with approximately 20 grams of fat. And shrimp have high levels of beneficial highly unsaturated fatty acids, which raise HDL cholesterol levels, so eating shrimp may actually lower blood cholesterol levels.
In that case I may eat even more of them, my favorite food.
I recommend it! About 20 years ago, shrimp was really affordable at the local grocery chain (I was stationed in IL at the time). I would have it steamed and put it in the freezer in large serving size packages. I had steamed shrimp every Friday. My cholesterol was never better!
I love shrimp cocktail and you get about 5 pieces of shrimp to a serving. I guess that means I'm eating good cholesterol. Thanks for the info.
You want extra delicious barbecue? Wrap shrimp in bacon, cube of cheddar cheese, and Jalapeno, secured with a toothpick.
That's a misconception, shrimp contains NO cholesterol. They thought it did at one time.
However if you're going to marinate it in butter and olive oil, that's a different story...
Ohhhh, tonight, shrimp served on a platter. First, marinated, coated in flour, pan fried in butter and served warm with avocado slices between two thick slices of warm, home made bread. (Tis good like this over noodles too, or with rice) Yum!
Srimp in Australian terminology are very small. We eat what we call prawns, and half a dozen of them is a fair sized meal. I love them heavily marinated in butter and garlic with olive oil done in a wok very quickly. Yum!
Yum! You bring the shrimp, and I'll bring the chocolate covered bananas! Do you like your peanuts roasted, crushed and rolled with a bit of sugar???
You would like the fresh large Gulf Shrimp here in the states we fix them that exact same way, butter, garlic and Olive Oil, and my home made dipping sauce!
Lana makes a Hot Russian bread (Her Grandmothers recipie) thats fantistic with it, especially with the Olive Oil. She makes it from wheat by hand. Add a little of the old Vino and...(hot hot hot!)...lol
Is that bread in the shape of a hot Russian?
Sorry! Two weeks to reply!!!
That sounds absolutely delicious!
I have had your Gulf Shrimp on an early visit to the states at a friends home. You are right, and with the bread, I'm halfway to the airport!
Yes shrimp anyway I can get it smothered, covered, or just plain and simple...scrumptious by the way hi earnest
Hi smokenchic. If it is a crustacean it is unsafe in my presence. I never steal, but could make an exception for crayfish and prawns!
LOL..how about lagastenos ..I know it ain't spelled right..lol. I just know they are delicious o, dripping in butter and garlic sauce. I am making myself hungry. Me thinks I need to go buy some tomorrow shrimp that is.
Snails? gasteropoda. Is that it?
I reckon they need all the sauce they can get!
Nah they are supposedly baby lobster..I don't know they are real tiny, and they melt in your mouth...ok now I am for real going to raid the fridge and cupboards...lol
Oh! Baby Lobster???? Now that is another matter! langoustes, small spiny lobster.
I always viewed shrimp as bugs of the sea...just with a less crunchy texture than the land lovin' type.
I might as well bite into a fat ol' grasshopper (but, they have a pungent odor so I'll pass).
So, as you may assume, not my cup of tea nor was sea food ever.
Felt like breaking the flow of posts on shrimp and its 'yumminess,' yo.
Yeah, shrimp is a delicious food. From time to time I buy it to cosher myself...
Is shrimp the same as prawn? We have a large prawn here called a banana prawn, they are huge and delicious.
I lived in Darwin for two years. My mate owned a prawn trawler.
Always grabbed at least a box a week! Luv em! Great info at that link!
Glad it was helpful.
Of course the trick is not to counteract all that good cholesterol by sautéing them in a pound of butter!
shrimp is good anyway it is cooked...had it last night over pasta with a spicy sauce...
yummmm shrimp scampi is my favorite...shrimp just basking in garlic and melted butter...okay you guys are mean! Now I'm craving shrimp. *thhhhhhhpppppppp* lmao
This thread is making me so hungry!
Shrimp are one of two reasons I will never, ever be a real vegetarian. I love them so much...
I love shrimp and do a shrimp dip appetizer that is simply past delicious. The only trouble is you are right, it is high in cholesterol and for that reason I only make it once a year for Christmas Eve when nothing fishy is off limits. If someone else makes it, so be it--I'll eat it. YUM!!!
I live in an area where shrimp was the staple food for everyone - until of course the government and the environmental concerns jumped in. When I moved to this area, shrimp was cheaper than hamburger, better for you and simply delicious. You can't imagine the number of wonderful shrimp recipes I've collected and had the honor of learning to prepare. However about 10 years ago there was a major growth spurt in the area and suddenly no one was allowed to go shrimping and bring back more than 1 measley 5 gallon bucket except those licensed as actual shrimpers. This meant all these families who had lived on it as a staple item and had sold it to us non-shrimpers for $1.50lb (heads on) were having to buy more groceries and had lost their second income. But that's progress right?!?
My wife makes Blackened Shrimp that are awesome with blackened fish(Any kind) and Jambalaya rice! She also does a shrimp only night with boiled, blackened, scampi and fried! Run for cover otherwise you'll hurt yourself!
Pardon my ignorance sneaker, what does blackened mean?
Hey the last thing I'd call you is ignorant. It's a moderately spicy cajun-style of cooking, you season to taste and cook in butter to give almost burnt appearance, it's a fast and works just as well on fish. I've had crab done that way and it's very nice and steaks as well. When it's done it has a black or slightly burnt appearance and it can be zippy! We like it spicy but not torturous. Try it, it's easy! If we can do it, it has to be easy! We are meat and potatoe midweaterners, we picked this up years ago when we moved to Houston.
Thanks sneaker, I will have to eat that!!!!
OK, just gonna have to organize this. I will do it for my Son and me.
Thanks sneaker, any new way to have shrimp sounds good to me, and blackened shrimp sounds fabulous!
yes shrimp is very nice but when it comet to cholesterol it is very high so be careful.
Cheek out some food to eat that can increase hdl. http://www.cholesterol-hdl-ldl.com/food … e-hdl.html
