    Let's see if I can keep this one rolling [​IMG] forgive me if I get distracted with, well with life . . . as long as someone is interested I will try to add at least one a week.

    As with all else I am super freaky about keeping a schedule to keep my self in line and remembering my goals - this one being to serve my family seafood once a week, in an interesting and tasty manner - we don't do fish sticks in our house but maybe you do [​IMG] adjust the menu to suit YOUR life please. Again you will find me annoying thorough about planning every thing. The Seafood menu is designed to alternate white fleshed fish, red fleshed fish & shell fish. And again you will find 13 recipes so that we find ourselves eating each one four times a year only. You may want more variety than that, add whatever suits you!

    The schedule:

    1. Crab/lobster/crawfish
    2. Tuna
    3. Halibut
    4. Shrimp & Basmati Rice
    5. Salmon & Jasmine Rice
    6. Mahi Mahi & Arborio Rice
    7. Sushi
    8. Trout & Wild Rice Pilaf
    9. Cod
    10. Scallops/clams/mussels/calamari
    11. Swordfish
    12. Sea bass
    13. Tilapia

    first recipe:

    Shrimp & Basmati Rice
    Large Salt Water Shrimp - I don't mind famed raised, but prefer wild, & I really don't like fresh water shrimp
    1 cans worth diced tomatos - feel free to use fresh
    4-6 cloves garlic - crushed (more if you like)
    Juice from 1 lemon
    two handfulls of Fresh parsley - chopped
    crazy janes - to taste
    red pepper flakes - to taste
    1/2 to 1 cup white wine

    Basmati rice

    Prepare you shrimp (defrost if frozen, peel, clean etc.) & set aside

    cook your rice - I use a rice cooker

    While rice is cooking start your sauce:

    In large sautee pan over medium heat, warm tomatoes - when bubbly add garlic, then white wine and lemon juice. Lower heat to simmer, depending on how much sauce you want you can add more wine as it cooks down a bit. add one handfull of the parsley and season to taste. add shrimp and cover, shaking slightly now and then until shrimp is done (5 min or so depending on heat and size of shrimp). remove lid and stir in the rest of parsley. Serve immediately over the rice. If you want to be fancy top with just a few shaves of a really nice Asagio cheese. Enjoy!

    you sound just like my daughter. Now why do you need more than one recipe a week if you are going to have seafood ONE night a week???
