I don’t care what anyone says but this shrimp cocktail recipe is my favorite to make.
Being back and forth between Ireland and America sometimes I forget some of the great food I come across while living here in the states. I have offered some US favorites in the past but have also missed out on a lot. Today I’d like to share one of my favorite shrimp (prawn) recipes that I have come across in my travels. It is simple and quick, plus can be made all under 30 minutes.
A gumbo is a classic new Orleans dish. It is a great dish that can be made so easily and fast with simple ingredients that are easily accessible. Using frozen vegetables also speeds up the process.
When I spent some time working in France, the place where I worked would cook this stew, they didn’t really have any name for it so I called it Dordogne lamb stew as this was the region I was staying in, seemed only fair right?
I think everyone somewhat has their own version of this dish. It truly is one of those Irish dishes that ALWAYS tastes as good as the first time my mother cooked it for me. I hope you enjoy my version.
There is nothing better than tucking into a great big bowl of stew. The nights are getting shorter and colder. It is time to get out those heavy Dutch ovens and start braising.
