Who doesn’t love Paella – Spain’s famous grilled rice dish? I’ve never really attempted making Paella at home until recently when we went to spend a weekend with friends in Connecticut. Our hosts made a simple seafood and chicken paella and I was sous-chef!
It turned out to be a really easy dish and a hit with all. You can use any ingredients that you like. I just made a chicken, chorizo and shrimp paella but you can add any seafood/ meat you wish to.
The recipe we used is adapted from Christine Gallary’s Grilled Paella Mixta on the CHOW website.
This recipe calls for cooking on a grill but I just did everything stove top.
This is an outstanding shrimp curry I tried this past summer. It’s a really easy recipe and works well with the tiny shrimps. Thanks Neha for sharing!
Here is a really simple, Thai style stir fried chili shrimp dish from Aunty Pen’s recipe.
This Indian green curry used to be one of the go to dishes served by my mom in India whenever they were entertaining.
This past summer, after many years, we resurrected this recipe and found that the love for it has passed onto the next generation with my daughter being a huge fan of it. Here is the recipe.
My aunt Nisha is a fabulous cook. Every summer I spend in Chennai, India, I harass her to teach me more and more of her delicious recipes. Here is a really easy and yummy prawn curry she made for me this summer.
My mother-in-law Atsuko makes this shrimp dish, which is sort of a Japanese rendition of a General Tso’s recipe. You can substitute the shrimp with chicken or any vegetable too.
This is one of my children’s favorite shrimp dishes.
My parents went to a little restaurant in Bologna, Italy a few years ago and my father loved this dish there. So of course my mother came back and recreated it in her kitchen.
It’s a really quick and super yummy dish that is a real crowd pleaser. You can serve it with pasta, rice or on a bed of steamed vegetables.
