Shrimp Salad With White Asparagus

Shrimp Salad With White Asparagus

For a beautiful, warm spring day like today I think we need a light and delicious Shrimp Salad served on a small slice of French bread. I’ve had my eye on this Shrimp Salad for quite some time now, and today is the perfect day for it. The most important thing about making it, is to make sure that you get as much liquid out of the shrimp and asparagus as possible and that is difficult to do with the fragile marinated asparagus without squashing them. I still ended up with a little too much liquid in mine but the salad was still wonderful and very fresh tasting. Perhaps next time I’ll try in addition to gently patting the asparagus dry, also letting them sit for awhile on some paper towels to try and absorb some more liquid. This is a really nice, refreshing Shrimp Salad with a hint of lemon. Enjoy!

Shrimp Salad With White Asparagus

Ingredients:

200 grams small shrimp (peeled, deveined and cooked)

16-18 thin white asparagus (marinated in water)

1 deciliter Hellmann’s mayo

1 tablespoon ketchup

a small sprinkle of fresh lemon juice

a pinch of ground chili powder

Directions:

If using frozen shrimp, defrost, drain and thoroughly pat dry the shrimp. Remove asparagus from marinade water, place on paper towel and gently pat dry. It is important to remove as much liquid from shrimp and asparagus as possible to avoid a wet shrimp salad. Cut asparagus into bite size pieces. In a small bowl add mayo, ketchup, lemon juice and chili powder, stir. Add shrimp and asparagus to mayo mixture and gently mix to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Serve with French bread. Enjoy!

Sometime during the Fall Joe and I stopped in at one of my favorite stores IKEA to do some shopping. Of course we had to have lunch at Ikea…its a must, you know.  They had a wonderful piece of Smørrebrød loaded with egg and shrimp, simply delicious. And so this is my recreation of that wonderful piece of Smørrebrød. It has since then become a weekend lunch favorite at our house. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

1 slice Rugbrød (dark Rye bread)

butter (at room temperature)

lettuce

1 hard-boiled egg, sliced

salad shrimp

1 tablespoon lemon juice

salt and pepper

mayonnaise

Directions:

Place salad shrimp in a small bowl and toss with lemon juice, a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread a thin layer of butter onto rugbrød (if desired) and place lettuce on top. Then top with sliced egg, shrimp and mayonnaise. Enjoy.

Fusilli Col Buco And Shrimp In Tomato Cream Sauce

Fusilli Col Buco And Shrimp In Tomato Cream Sauce

Ok, so I admit it, I’m hooked on Tomato Cream sauces. Ok ok, here is the real truth, I’m hooked on anything tomato. Tomato sandwiches, tomato soup, tomato sauces or just a plain tomato with salt and pepper, yum. I think maybe Joe (my husband) is getting a little tired of my love affair with tomatoes, although he really did like this Tomato cream sauce. And did you see these beautiful Fusilli Col Buco that I found. I have been saving them for a special tomato sauce and this is it. Hope you enjoy this recipe, should you decide to give it a try.

1/2 cup white wine

1 can Tomato Sauce, 8 ounces
