FROGMORE STEW 5  >Back to Top<

2 pounds uncooked shrimp in shell
4 ears corn on the cob
4 medium potatoes
2 pounds sausage, sliced
1 container shrimp & crab boil
1 lemon
2 medium onions (optional)

Fill a large stew pot about 1/2 full of water. Squeeze lemon juice into pot (throw in lemon rind). Add as much of the shrimp and crab boil as you think is wise (I usually use the whole bottle but my wife can barely stand 2/3rds of a bottle). Cut potatoes into large chunks and add potatoes and corn on the cob. Cook for about 10 minutes and add cut up onions.

Cook until the corn and potatoes are done, then add shrimp and sausage (cut into "wheels") and cook until shrimp are done (about 3 to 4 minutes longer). This is a very hot stew and should be served with something to cut the heat. I enjoy slaw and some good bread. Hot mustard goes well with the sausage and tarter sauce goes well with the shrimp. Yield: 4 servings



FROGMORE STEW 6  >Back to Top<

1/4 cup Old Bay seasoning
4 pounds small red potatoes
2 pounds kielbasa or other smoked link sausage cut into 1 1/2 inch slices
6 ears of corn, halved
4 pounds unpeeled large shrimp
Additional Old Bay seasoning
Commercial cocktail sauce

Fill a large pot half way with water. Add 1/4 cup of the Old Bay seasoning. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and return to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Add sausage and corn, return to a boil and cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add shrimp and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Remove all with a slotted spoon onto a serving platter or newspaper lined table. Serve with additional Old Bay seasoning and cocktail sauce. Yields 12 servings.



FROGMORE STEW 7  >Back to Top<

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup Old Bay Seafood Seasoning
2 onions sliced
kielbasa sausage
fresh corn on the cob cut in half, one ear per person
new potatoes. 2 to 3 per person
fresh unpeeled shrimp

To a large pot of water add apple cider vinegar, Old Bay Seafood Seasoning, sliced onions and Kielbasa sausage. Bring to boil. Add fresh corn on the cob cut in half. Bring to boil. Add New potatoes. Bring to boil. Add fresh unpeeled shrimp. Bring to boil. Boil 3 minutes or until foam starts to appear on top of water.

Remove water from pot and dump ingredients out on top of spread newspapers. This stew is great eaten outdoors on the picnic table or an old door. Best shared with a large group of friends or family. Best eaten with hands. Best served with a cooler of ice cold beer and cocktail sauce for the shrimp.

Prepare your fire on your barbecue, (high heat) or use broiler. Season fillets with salt and pepper and coat fillets with vinaigrette. Cook until fish flakes, be careful not to break fillet when turning. When fish is done place fillet on platter and pour remaining vinaigrette over fish.




2 Red Onions, chopped
1 Cup Sliced Mushrooms
1 Cup Lobster Meat or Peeled Shrimp
1 Cup Sour Cream
1 Stick Butter
Salt & Pepper to taste

Sauté onions in butter. Flour lobster pieces liberally, add to onions. Add sour cream, mushrooms and salt and pepper. Simmer until thickened and serve over rice or in patty shells. A very rich, easy dish for company. Servings: 4




4 (3-ounce) cod fillets
4 large squares of foil
Cajun spice to taste
2 zucchini, sliced
8 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 tomato, diced
1 onion, sliced thin
2 Tablespoons fat free butter

Divide vegetables evenly and top each fillet; use all vegetables. Wrap each fillet in foil and seal. Place each foil square on baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes. Serve with favorite rice and salad. Makes 4 servings.




3/4 pound catfish
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped sweet green peppers
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) whole tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup water
1 cup couscous

Sprinkle fish with Cajun seasoning. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet. Add onions and peppers; stir-fry until vegetables begin to brown, about two minutes. Stir in garlic, tomatoes and water, and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for five minutes. Stir in couscous. Arrange fish over couscous. Cover and cook until fish turns opaque, about 10 minutes. Makes 4 servings.




2 sticks butter
1 cup oil
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
several bay leaves, crushed
1 Tablespoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice
a little (maybe half a teaspoon) oregano
a little basil
a little salt
a little cayenne pepper
1/2 pound whole medium or large fresh whole shrimp with heads per person

In a big, heavy saucepan melt 2 sticks of butter, then add 1 cup of vegetable oil and mix. Add garlic, bay, rosemary, paprika, pepper, lemon juice, oregano, basil, salt and cayenne. Heat to boiling and then simmer this mixture for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 30 minutes.

Add one-half pound of whole medium or large fresh whole shrimp (heads, antennae, shells and all) per person -- for more than six people you'll want to increase the sauce recipe. If you can't find shrimp with the heads, that's okay, but it makes the meal more dramatic and, I think, adds flavor. Cook over medium heat for 6 or 8 minutes, just until the shrimp turn pink.

Then put the pan in a 450 oven and bake for 10 minutes. Serve in a wide bowl or large plate with lots of the sauce, with crusty French bread on the side and a few bottles of white wine.

Add salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Bring mixture to simmer, stirring constantly; simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add shrimp. Turn heat to high and cook stirring often, 5 to 10 minutes or until shrimp curl and turn pink. DO NOT OVERCOOK. Serve immediately with lots of napkins.

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined or 1 pound crawfish tails or 1 pound scallops or 2 dozen fresh shucked oysters
1/2 pound tasso, cut in 1/4 inch dice
1 pint heavy cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoons fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried
2 teaspoons fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pound spaghetti, fresh if possible
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped

Pour the cream into a large heavy skillet and place over medium heat. Stir the cream when it begins to rise to keep it from overflowing; when it comes to a boil, add the tasso, salt, peppers and herbs and let simmer for 8-10 minutes. The cream sauce should be fairly thick, especially if you're using oysters (the liquid from the oysters will thin it out). You can prepare the sauce ahead to this point.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil and drop in the pasta. Cook until just al dente. Meanwhile, return the sauce to a simmer, stir in the shrimp (or oysters, scallops, crawfish, etc.), green onions and parsley and cook until the shrimp turn pink (or until the oysters curl around the edges), about 3-4 minutes. Drain the pasta and divide among bowls. Ladle the sauce over and toss; serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Serves 4-6.

Note: This recipe is also excellent with oysters, scallops, or even crawfish. (If you like smoked oysters, try it substituting 2 dozen oysters for the shrimp; the fresh oysters stay nice and plump, and the dish gets its smoky flavor from the tasso.)

1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 (14.5-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, crushed
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 bay leaf, broken in half
hot pepper sauce
2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

Heat oil in a Dutch oven on medium heat. Sauté celery, onions, and garlic in the Dutch oven until the onions are pearly white and the celery has begun to soften. Mix sugar, flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper into the Dutch oven. Add crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce, both pieces of bay leaf, and hot sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn the heat to low. Let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Approximately 15 minutes before serving, add shrimp to the pot and stir well. If necessary, raise the temperature to medium-low to ensure the Creole is bubbling but not burning. Scoop out the bay leaf halves before serving. Serve when the shrimp is pink and thoroughly cooked.



STUFFED CRABS  >Back to Top<

6 medium cooked crabs
1/4 cup butter
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1-1/4 cups chopped Cajun vegetables
1/2 fresh chili, chopped
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme pepper
3/4 cup condensed seafood bisque
1 cup fine fresh bread crumbs

Open the crabs and remove the inedible parts. Pull away legs and claws; crack open and extract the meat. Scrub the crab back shells and set aside. Shred the crabmeat with your fingers, picking out the fragments of shell. Heat butter in a skillet and cook the chopped garlic, bell pepper, Cajun vegetables and chopped chili for 5 minutes.

Add the celery salt, thyme, pepper and bisque and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the crabmeat with half of the bread crumbs. Stir briefly over high heat. Pack mixture into the crab shells. Smooth the tops and press remaining crumbs over the surface. Preheat oven to 400 F. Place crabs on a baking sheet and bake about 15 minutes or until heated through and golden.



TASTY BREAM  >Back to Top<

1 Teaspoon Salt
24 Bream Filets
1 Teaspoon Instant Crab Seasoning
1 Bag Crab Boil
Shrimp Dip

Place salt crab boil and instant seasoning in saucepan with enough water to cover fish Bring to a boil. Add filets and let water come to boil once more. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand for 10 minutes. Drain. Serve the bream filets with a shrimp dip, French fries and a fresh green salad. Servings: 6




1 pound Louisiana catfish filets
1/2 pound salt pork, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup ketchup
2 cups cubed potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon pepper
1 box seasoned croutons

Fry salt pork in oil. Add catfish and sauté until halfway cooked. Add chopped onion and continue to sauté. Combine soup, ketchup, potatoes, salt and pep-per. Add to catfish mixture and simmer 30 minutes. Serve in bowls and top with croutons. Servings: 4




1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon horseradish, bottled
1 teaspoon anchovy, mashed
3 tablespoons Creole mustard
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon ketchup

1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup celery, chopped

1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined

1/4 cup parsley, minced
1/4 cup green onion, tops only, minced

Plunge shrimp into lightly salted boiling water. Once they are pink, remove from the water and set aside. Overcooked shrimp are tough. They will be further cooked in the sauce.

In a bowl, mix or blend the first 11 ingredients. Stir in the next 3 ingredients. Place mixture in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until hot but not boiling, three to four minutes

Into this, stir the freshly peeled, deveined boiled shrimp (1 pound). Do not overcook, perhaps a minute and a half or two: under-do this! Stir in minced green onion tops and parsley. Adjust seasoning.

This is absolutely delicious served over your choice of a bed of fresh spinach or romaine, a treat on thickly sliced ripe tomatoes, even on angel hair pasta or placed over grilled eggplant slices, any one of which should be lightly herbed.

Serves four as an entrée, or six to eight as hors d'ouevres.
