Angela, I'm probably too late in answering this, but just in case, here is a quick and easy idea. A friend of mine made this up and it's pretty good.

Bernadette's Seafood Alfredo with Penne
1 recipe alfredo sauce or 1 jar ready made (like Bertolli)
2 14 oz. cans diced tomatoes
fresh shrimp and scallops (I use about 1/2 lb. of each)

Saute shrimp and scallops in a little oil just until cooked. Add them to the sauce just before serving. Serve over cooked penne.

Variation: use cooked chicken in place of seafood

I like to sauté them in a little butter/olive oil with some minced garlic and chopped green onions, then serve over some spaghetti type pasta.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

Farnfam had posted this one. Have not tried it, but had copied for future making...

Tried and True Shrimp and Grits *always gets rave reviews and so easy!


6 c water
2 t salt
1 1/2 cquick grits
1/2 c whole milk or cream (fat free half and half also works)
2 T butter
1 roll garlic cheese (Kraft or you can use Velveeta and add some chopped garlic)
1 t Lea and Perrin

Cook grits according to directions, adding milk when grits start to thicken. When grits are almost ready or ready, add cheese and heat until it melts. You may re-heat in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes in a greased casserole dish if you prepare the grits ahead of time.


1/2 c butter or margarine
1/4 c olive oil
1.5 lb med to large shrimp, cut in half or in thirds, depending on size. Just want them to fit on a spoon with the grits and sauce.
1 clove garlic, minced
1 c chopped green onions
1 c sliced mushrooms
1/2 c chopped parsley
1/2 t salt
1 t pepper
1/4 t cayenne
1/2 t paprika
1/4 t each of basil, oregano and thyme
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 can mild Rotel tomatoes, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
1/8 to 1/4 cup Wondra or regular flour
Melt butter in oil and saute all ingredients, except shrimp and flour. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir. Simmer 10 minutes or so. Add 1/8 to 1/4 c of Wondra to thicken a little.
Add shrimp just before ready to serve and cook until pink.

***Serve grits in a bowl or plate and top with shrimp and sauce. You may use original Rotel tomatoes and increase cayenne if you prefer it a bit spicier.

Serves 6 generously.

Any stir fry is great---just saute then add your favorite veggies.

one more idea into the ring - for next time

easy and fast and wonderful.


oven to 450°. On a heavy baking sheet mix together -
-- (for ~1 1/2 lbs. shrimp)
3 cloves garlic -- minced
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt & cracked black pepper

Add the peeled, but tails left on, shrimp to the b. sheet and toss together with the garlic mixture. Spread out in a single layer.

Roast for 3 min, turn shrimp over & continue roasting till the shrimp are opaque and firm, another 2-4 min.

Transfer shrimp to a shallow dish, cover partially & refrigerate. When the shrimp are chilled, eat those suckers!! Just remember when you transfer the shrimp, scrape the bottom of the b. sheet and get all the great goop for the shrimp.

I'm bound and determined one of these days to stay out of the shrimp long enuf to cook up some pasta and just scrape all that on top!! It is so good!

Also, if you don't have a favorite cocktail sauce -

1/2 c ketchup

1/2 c chili sauce

1/4 c grated red onion

1/2-1 tsp. finely chopped fresh jalapeno

2-3 T. prepared horseradish

1 T. fresh lemon juice

Kosher salt to taste.

This will keep up to a week...I'm told. Just before serving taste and add more lemon juice and salt if needed.

I usually like New Orleans style barbecued shrimp with plenty of sopping bread, but recently I saw a recipe for McCall's Plantation Shrimp Salad on Paula Deen's show that is excellent:

McCall's Plantation Shrimp Salad

2 pounds shrimp, cleaned and de-veined
1 package shrimp seasoning (recommended: Old Bay) (I used one teaspoon of regular Old Bay)
1 cup rice
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green olives
Black pepper
1 cup mayonnaise

Boil shrimp in water, to cover, with shrimp seasoning just until pink. Drain and reserve the shrimp boil water. Chop shrimp into bite-size chunks, put on paper towels; set aside to cool. In the reserved water, boil the rice according to package instructions until tender, drain and set aside. Add the onion, olives, and black pepper, to taste, to the rice. Then stir in the mayonnaise. Add the cooled, dry shrimp last. Toss and serve.

This is even better the next day served cold.
