Lemon Garlic Shrimp in a Rush

on-Garlic-shrimp-in-a-rush poppopcooks.com

You are going to make this Lemon Garlic Shrimp again and again because it is 10 minutes start to finish! Even if you have to defrost, peel and devein the shrimp you can keep it under 20 minutes. AND,, if you use the microwave for the defrosting and the cooking you will do it even faster.  What could be better for a quick and easy week night meal? You could also have this as an appetizer with a Sunday kinda bigger meal.

Set the oven at 400°F. (or have the microwave standing by) Put the peeled and deveined shrimp in a bowl. Drizzle with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the garlic, parmesan cheese, lemon (zest or juice), salt and pepper. You might want to also add a pinch of red pepper flakes but that’s up to you. Put your hands in the bowl and toss everything together.

Spread everything out on a cookie sheet. You can line the sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper because it will make the clean up easier. Bake it for about three to four minutes or until the shrimp is pink. Or, you could put it in a microwave safe bowl and zap it in 30 second shots mixing it between shots until your shrimp is pink and firm.

You can serve this up with any quick and easy veggie dish. Some chilled pinot grigio, chablis or soave would go great with your Lemon Garlic Shrimp.

Caramelized Pearl Onions

Caramelized Pearl Onions3 poppopcooks.com

Caramelized Pearl Onions are a regular whenever we have company over and for years I bought the little bunches of them, trying to get as close as possible to getting them all the same size. Then cutting the ends off and peeling them. It was a pain but it was worth it. They ARE good! Then a while back I stumbled upon frozen pearl onions and gave them a try. Wow, the finished product is just as good and they are a lot closer to being uniform in size. We had our son, John, our daughter-in-law Whitney and our two precious granddaughters, Caitlyn and Peyton over for Sunday dinner.

That’s Caitlyn on the left cutting up the mozzarella for the chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan we had for dinner. That’s Peyton in the middle. She’s  in charge, just ask her. I’m just totally enjoying my time with my cute grand babies.

Oh, back to the Caramelized Pearl Onions! Thaw out a bag of frozen pearl onions. Drain out the liquid and pat them dry with paper towels.

Put a skillet on that is big enough to handle the onions all spread out and not piled up. Did I say that right? Set it at medium low and add 4 tbsp.of extra virgin olive oil. Add the onions and sprinkle 1 level tbsp. salt and 1/2 tbsp. pepper all over them.

Caramelized Pearl Onions2 poppopcooks.com

Let them cook slowly, tossing every couple of minutes. The slower they cook the sweeter and tastier they will be. It will take about 25-30 minutes for them to be caramelized. When they are a golden color taste one. I bet you can’t stop at just one. If they look good and taste good they are ready. Some people add water,  white wine and /or various herbs but in my opinion there is no need to add to or embellish the great taste of the simply caramelized onions. I’ve tried other added stuff and have always come back to just onions, EVO, salt and pepper. You can’t beat it.

This is the pair of Calphalon pans that I use every time I get dinner ready. They are the best I’ve ever worked with. Real easy to use and clean.


They went over real good, ,,again. The only reason there are a few left is that the main course was on the table and Gammy said, “GET IN HERE, SIT DOWN AND STOP IT WITH THE ONIONS”.

Frittatas for People on the Go

I can't eat just one.

Gammy makes these and they are great! When your running a little late in the morning but your real tired of “energy” bars this is great. You know what, it’s great even when you’re not in a rush.

 

Ready for the pans
All the Frittata ingredients

Heat oven to 350F. Mist 2 muffin pans (12 cups each) with cooking spray. Cook the bacon until it is as crispy as you want it. Break it up into about 1/2 inch pieces and set aside. In a large skillet at medium high heat add the oil and let it heat up. Add the onions, peppers, mushrooms and asparagus. Stir them together and cook until they are soft, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl whisk the eggs, milk and basil until it is all mixed up real good. Stir in the the bacon, cheese and all the rest of the veggies.

Frittata Mixture
Frittatas ready for the oven.

Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups filling them about 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until they are firm. Not like a rock and not like mushy. Just firm.

I can't eat just one.
Um Um good!

Of course you are going to have to have one or two as soon as they’ve cooled off enough to handle. If there are any left put them in a zippy bag and in the freezer. Then when you are in your morning mode and in a rush to get going put 1 or 2 in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and nosh on it as you leave to face your day.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Our good friend “Sissy” told us about this way to do asparagus and we think of her and thank her every time we have it. Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is way too easy, given how good it is. Preheat the oven to 500F.  Cut about an inch off the bottom or stump end of the stalks. Thoroughly rinse the asparagus under cold running water. Shake the water off.

IMG_2483Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Wrap a slice of bacon around each stalk, spiraling from on end to the other and spread them out on the sheet. If all you could find at the store were skinny stalks just wrap 2 or 3 of them with 1 slice of bacon. Put the sheet on a middle or upper rack in the oven. Lower rack will char the bottom of the bacon but, they still all would get eaten! Bake at 500 for about 10 minutes or until the bacon is done the way YOU want it. Serve up your Bacon Wrapped Asparagus!
