Garlicky Spaghetti and Baby Shrimp

Garlicky Spaghetti and Baby Shrimp

My kids all time favorite for a quick lunch. El dente spaghetti enrobed in a seriously garlicky and black pepper butter.  Did I say enrobed?! YES!! They are buttery slick!  Yum! With empty plates and buttery smiles they get back to their keyboards and punch away…

Recipe For Garlicky Noodles and Baby Shrimp

6 tablespoons salted butter, or more if you like

11 oz pre cooked baby shrimp, thawed and water squeezed out

1 teaspoon heaped fresh garlic, chopped to a pulp

8 oz spaghetti cooked until en dente

Freshly cracked black pepper

Chiffonade of parsley or a sprig of parsley would do.\

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a wide skillet.

 Stir fry the baby shrimp for  a couple of minutes on high heat and set aside.

In the same skillet, melt the butter on medium heat.

Toss in garlic and fry for a few minutes, being careful not to burn it.

Tumble in the cooked spaghetti and continue to fold over with a tong, making sure each strand is enrobed in butter.

Divide the spaghetti into two bowls, top with the shrimp and loads of cracked pepper.

Garnish with anything green really!

Pronto a mangiare!!

Crunchy Pizza

I made my first pizza when I was 11 years old or maybe sooner.  It was from the Ladybird children’s recipe book series.  It took me hours to make the dough alone.  I would cautiously warm the water, add the sugar and slowly pour in the yeast granules, watching the little globules scatter delicately into the water below.  I then stirred it and glowed at the transformation taking place before my eyes.  My favorite spot was leaving it in the sun near the swimming pool and watching it slowly bubble away. Mixing the dough was a feat I cherished. I spent more time than needed, kneading it. I loved the warm, squishy dough squeezing between my fingers. Continue reading

Hi my dear friends and fellow bloggers!

Again… it has been a tad bit too long since I wrote to you last.  As I mentioned in my previous post I was working on “Project Ghee”, well I don’t think I called it that exactly … but it sure does sound good right now 🙂

Anyway, let me tell you what I’ve been up too.  I’ve been preoccupied with ‘GHEE’, now I’m sure you shaking your head and thinking, “Really Shamim, like you had to tell us that!” (sarcasm intended)  Well, of course it’s ghee.  Ghee all the way baby!

Since the beginning of this year, Continue reading

Almost Paleo Haleem – Hearty and Spicy Lamb Stew

IMG_2761

 

Haleem, haleem, haleem is what most of my husband’s dreams are made of.  He loves this dish with a passion.  He claims the best haleem is made in Chicago at a popular Pakistani restaurant and I would have to agree.

Haleem, my friends, is a hearty lamb or beef stew made with bone-in meat cooked in a spicy curry and then thickened with wheat and lentils.  The curry is then pulverized into a thick soup and eaten with leavened crusty bread, such as naan, ladened with ghee or eaten with a hearty loaf of bread slathered in butter.
