CURRIED SEAFOOD CHOWDAHH

CURRIED SEAFOOD CHOWDAHH

This chowder is a rich and delicious twist on a coastal classic. The fresh scallops, shrimp, and monkfish are opulent in a creamy curried broth dotted with sweet corn and finished with bright basil leaves. Each bite bursts with layers of flavor and earthy goodness.

Any recipes that require minimal cooking and get me out of the kitchen faster while still being able to whip up an awesome dish during these hot summer months is my obvious go to; these Dessert Princess Prawns are just that. I’m obsessed with these Prawns; they’re unique, fresh and flavorful, definitely a new twist on a boring classic. Anyone that eats these Prawns has the same reaction… “Wow!”. Why the name you ask? While in Palm Springs, I discovered these at a local market… I was addicted off my first bite. For the remainder of the week I floated around in a pool with a crisp margarita on the rocks in one hand and a bowl of these little god sends in the other. What I would do to be back in that pool reliving those moments…. especially after this week.

So, clearly I had to recreate this recipe which involved me eating at least 3 lbs of this goodness… (what lengths I go to to get you guys the best recipes) but don’ts even worry about me.. did I forget to mention these are low in calories! Double score marks for me!

This recipe is super simple, cost effective and requires only 5 ingredients. However, I will warn you that finding one of these ingredients (which is an important component to this recipe) is going to be difficult or at least requires you to hit up a couple of different markets to find… Shrimp Bullion cubes. You’ve obviously have seen beef bullion, chicken bullion and vegetable bullion cubes, finding shrimp will be more challenging. I found mine in the ethnic section of a big box grocery store (which you know I hate to shop at) but it was the only place I could find them. They add the intensity and saltiness that makes these stand out… definitely don’t skip this step.

Enough with this writing, lets get down to it.

Asian Crab Salad

I first had a similar dish as a starter at our favorite Sushi restaurant and decided to try my hand at recreating it. I must say it gets rave reviews when I serve it and it is simple to prepare. Slightly spicy, definitely crunchy, and has a light texture while delivering a punch of flavor. It makes a great starter!
