Food on Friday ~ Shrimp

you don’t need a silver fork to enjoy good food

Here in England we have been in lockdown for just about a year, and trust me there’s not much fun in that.  There is also a regrettable tendency to eat the wrong things at the wrong times; which isn’t healthy.  One of the few things we can enjoy is good, healthy food, hopefully some of these recipes will cheer us up.

First this week, from Tieghan at Half Baked Harvest we have this Lemon Garlic Butter Shrimp Special.  Looks deliciously easy.

From Karina at Cafe Delites we have this wonderful Jambalaya; chicken, sausage, shrimp, rice in a Creole saute from New Orleans.  Fabulous.


Jessica at How Sweet Eats says this dish; Lemon Butter Shrimp and Broccoli Skillet is the perfect weeknight dinner.  I aver that this would be a perfect, healthy meal at any time of the week.

Holly at Spend with Pennies says this Shrimp Lo Mein can be ready in just 30 minutes.  I’d take a little longer, just to enjoy cooking this good-looking dish.

If you get weary of shrimp, yet want to stay with the theme, From Chungah at Damn Delicious we have a recipe for Garlic Butter Clams with White Wine Cream Sauce.  I’d want some crispy garlic bread to go along with this dish.

      1. In the old days journals touted shrimp to be bad for heart health with cholesterol and all. These days it is healthy food. Sigh how the barometer shifts. Lucky you can enjoy shrimps as I have allergies to shellfish. Enjoy your lovely dishes!
