Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo / #SundaySupper

We are all about seafood today for #SundaySupper, and I have a Seafood Fettucine Alfredo for you that is easier to make than you think, and so creamy and wonderful, you will want to share it with all your family and friends!
Do you remember the frozen fish patties that were served in the lunchroom when you were in grade school? That was my first exposure to seafood!
Fast forward to my early 20's, and I am living in Las Vegas with my husband. At that time in the city, eating out was cheaper than eating in! Really! Every casino had a food deal, just to get you in the door. There was a lot of food out there to choose from, and seafood was plentiful! Shrimp, lobster, crab, fish, scallops~you get my drift. I couldn't get enough of the stuff! How could this amazing, fresh food possibly be any relation to those frozen fish patties of my past? I thought of it as an incredibly tasty luxury and I still do. The difference now is that I have learned how to make my own, and I want you to know how to also.

Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo
(printable recipe at bottom of post)
makes 3 medium sized orders

Seafood
1/4 pound Shrimp
1/4 pound White Fish
1/4 pound Scallops
Black Pepper

Alfredo Sauce
1/2 tablespoon Butter
1/8 teaspoon Minced Garlic
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream 
1/2 cup Fresh Parmesan Cheese~shaved or shredded 
Black Pepper

Fettuccine Noodles
Cherry Tomatoes
Scallions
Fresh Bread, if desired
Clean and devein the shrimp. Chop into bite sized pieces.
Rinse and cut white fish into bite size pieces.
Rinse and cut scallops into quarters.
Season seafood with black pepper.
Cook the seafood in a pan on medium high heat, quick and fast, 4-5 minutes. Turn pieces of seafood as needed for even cooking. Do not overcook. Set on a back burner when done. 
Start the water boiling and cook your pasta. I made homemade noodles for this dish, but dried noodles work perfectly also. I thought I would demonstrate how to make homemade noodles later. There is a learning curve, and I am still learning, but I would love to share a video of the "how to" at a later date.
Melt the butter and add the garlic together in a pan set on medium low heat. 
 Pour heavy whipping cream into pan. Heat until beginning to bubble, stirring the entire time. As the cream heats, start adding the parmesan cheese, a little at a time, letting it melt before adding more. Add cheese until it becomes thick and to your desired consistency. Reserve a little cheese to top the dish with.
Plate your noodles in the center of your plate. Top with alfredo sauce.
 Add the seafood, and cheese. Garnish with baby tomato halves and scallions slices. Add bread if desired and enjoy!

Southwestern Tuna Salad Cups

Anytime is the perfect time to enjoy these Southwestern Tuna Salad Cups! They make a great addition to a party or a buffet type meal, and of course they are a staple in my house during lent. Most of the recipe can be made ahead of time, with some last minute touches just before serving, making them convenient for any occasion! 
This recipe is a small take off on the usual tuna salad by adding salsa, sour cream, cheese and avocado, giving it some southwest flair. The cutest part of the recipe is the cup made from a mini tortilla. Baked in the oven, it is the perfect way to deliver the southwest flavor all the through.

Southwestern Tuna Salad Cups

4 1/4" diameter Street Taco Flour Tortilla
5 ounce can Solid White Albacore Tuna
3 tablespoon Salsa
1 teaspoon Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Sour Cream
Mexican Style Blend Cheese
1 dollop Sour Cream
1 slice Avocado

Place mini tortilla in cupcake pan. Fold in pan by folding in once on each side. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes, then let cool.
Mix together the tuna fish, salsa, mayonnaise and sour cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
 To serve, place a heaping scoop of tuna fish salad into cups.
Sprinkle cheese over top of tuna, add a scoop of sour cream and a small piece of avocado.
 Enjoy your Southwestern Tuna Salad Cups!

Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo / #SundaySupper


We are days away from Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and because food plays such a big part of the celebration it only seems natural to celebrate with food! You are going to want to make this Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo a part of your party!! It is full of flavor, with sausage and potatoes in the mix too, and it's so easy to make. It takes some time, but it is well worth the time! 
 Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo

1 large Onion, coarsely chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, coarsely chopped
1 cup Celery, thinly sliced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 teaspoons mild Cajun Seasoning 
1/2 cup Peanut Oil
3/4 cup Flour
1 (48 oz) container Chicken Broth
2 pounds boneless Chicken Breasts
1 pound Andouille Sausage
1 pound Shrimp (med size)
3 pounds Red Potatoes
1 tablespoon Peanut Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup crumbled Bacon



 
Chop the onion, red pepper and celery. It can be a rough chop. I used a mandoline to slice the celery, and it worked great. 
Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the flour a little at a time, whisking constantly as you add it. Continue whisking for 15-18 minutes until the flour mix turns to a caramel color. Then reduce the heat to low, still whisking continuously until the mix turns to a milk chocolate color and becomes smooth. 
Take temperature back to medium. Add the onions, peppers, celery minced garlic and seasoning. Mix together. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
Cut chicken into chunks. Slice sausage into 1/4" wide pieces.

Add chicken broth, sausage and chicken to pot. Increase to medium high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally for 1 hour 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
The chicken needs to be shredded. You can do it by leaving the chicken in the pot, or you can pull it out, shred it and return it to the pan. Using two forks pulling opposite one another makes it easy to shred.
Peel and devein the shrimp. Add to the pot to cook for 3-4 minutes. Mix the red potatoes, oil, and salt together in a bowl. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Quarter the potatoes and place on baking sheet to cook for 40-45 minutes.
Place potatoes into bottom of bowl.
Spoon in gumbo. Top with chopped bacon.
Enjoy your tasty gumbo!

Surf & Turf for Two / #SundaySupper

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and with it comes the usual questions about how to celebrate. Should you eat out? Which restaurant should you choose? How much should you spend? This year make it easy and celebrate at home with a meal you won't soon forget! Surf and Turf for Two! It's easier than you think! One of the easiest parts of preparing this meal is the fact that the shrimp is almost all prep, with 2-3 minutes of cooking, and the steak can be cooked on the grill, which you probably know how to do already. If it is too cold to be outside grilling, cook it in a pan on your stove. The sides take care of themselves. Plus, you will have great leftovers!

Surf and Turf for Two
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 Beef Round London Broil  2.24 lbs
Zesty Italian Dressing
A-1  
16-20 ct Uncooked Shrimp
Shrimp Boil Oil
Cocktail Sauce
2 Lemon Wedges
Fresh Mushrooms
2-3 Onion Slices
Various Small Potatoes
Fresh Broccoli 

Begin by marinating your steak. Pour equal parts of dressing and A1 on to the top of your steak.
Use two forks and continuously pierce the top of the meat with the forks. Flip the meat over and do the same to the other side. This takes a little time, but it is worth it for the great flavor. Don't be afraid of over doing stabbing the meat. This can be done early in the day, then just wrapped and refrigerated until you are ready to cook. 
You can prepare your shrimp earlier in the day also. The first thing to do peel the shrimp. I set the shrimp in a bowl, and let the cold water run over it as I peel all the the shrimp. Then I go back and devein the shrimp. Even if the shrimp is advertised as deveined, I like to devein the inner side of the shrimp also. It is not necessary, it's just a thing I do, and it's up to you. Once done, you can cook it right away because you are making cocktail shrimp.
Boil water in a pan that is large enough for all the shrimp.. Follow the directions on the bottle of shrimp boil, but it will probably tell you to boil the water, then once boiling, add the shrimp boil oil and then the shrimp. It will only cook for about 2-3 minutes. Don't overcook it. It will be too tough and chewy.
As you pour the shrimp into the colander let cold water run over the shrimp. Have a water bath ready. Fill a big bowl half way with ice, add the shrimp and cover with more ice. Add water to the bowl, and let the ice chill the shrimp completely. 
About 30 minutes before you want to eat, boil water for your potatoes, and cook them until you can pierce them to the center. Saute the mushrooms and onion slices, in a frying pan with butter. Cook the broccoli. 
As your sides are coming together, get you meat on the grill. I like to flip the meat over every 2-3 minutes for a total time of 15 minutes for medium rare. I use a timer to do this because I am easily distracted by others.
Slice down some of your steak before you plate it. It makes it so easy to serve. 
Prepare 2 little bowls with cocktail sauce and a lemon wedge, and place some shrimp around the edges.
Place the steak, the potatoes, and the vegetables on the main plate. Don't forget the broccoli like I did.! I even mentioned to my husband that I should have made something green for the plate, and it still did not dawn on me that the broccoli was still on the stove. I found it after dinner. It was fine, and I used it for soup the next day!

Seared Scallops with Shredded Manchego and a Bleu Cheese Crumble / #SundaySupper

Today we are all about Spanish Tapas with these Seared Scallops with Shredded Manchego and a Bleu Cheese Crumble! If you haven't experienced tapas, you will want to give it a try! Tapas is a plate of fun, tasty and pretty small bites, all rolled into one. A real feast for your senses, tapas can be hot or cold, and is usually served with wine, beer or sherry. Many times it is enjoyed by creating several different dishes and making them a meal. A great way to do tapas is to make some "do ahead" recipes, like roasted almonds and vegetable dip, and then add in an entree type dish or two, like these seared scallops, and a small bite meat dish. Check out the recipes at the end of this post to find a variety of yummy tapas plates to try!

Seared Scallops w/ Shredded Manchego and a Bleu Cheese Crumble
(printed recipe)

3 tablespoons Olive Oil
3 tablespoons Orange Juice
1 tablespoons Honey
1 tablespoon Fresh Dill
4 ounces Manchego, shredded  
1 pound Fresh Scallops
1-2 tablespoons Butter
Lettuce
4 ounces Bleu Cheese, crumbles



Whisk together the Olive Oil, Orange Juice and Honey. Refrigerate.
Chop up the dill and lettuce. Shred the Manchego Cheese.
Rinse the scallops. Heat butter in a pan on medium high heat. As scallops and the butter start to brown, turn them over to cook on the other side. 
Once the scallops are done cooking, place the shredded lettuce on the plate or tray, and top with the scallops. Sprinkle with the manchego cheese, bleu cheese and dill. Drizzle with orange vinaigrette. 


Enjoy your tapas and the tapas experience!
