Fritter Flash: If y'all aren't in the South today, you are probably warmer than us! A Nor'easter blew in yesterday and the temperature only reached 55! Usually in May it is a scorcher, in the 90s, everybody is beach ready and the only scent you smell is Hawaiian Tropic! We woke up freezing this morning! The weatherman said that we are in for for hurricane weather two weeks early this year! It was very unexpected and reminds us of our daddy. Our daddy had a boat and he named it the Nor’easter because every time he took it out fishing, a Nor’easter blew in and it was a front from out of nowhere! When you taste this one, your taste forecast will change and your tongue won’t know what hit it!
The Nor’easter Dinner
1-1/2 teaspoon butter
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1/4 cup limeade juice
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 pound large, raw shrimp, peeled
1/4 cup Slivered Almonds, toasted
3 cups hot cooked rice
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until garlic is slightly softened. Stir in limeade, green onions and ginger. Increase heat to medium-high; cook and stir until liquid is reduced by about half. Add shrimp and cook until shrimp turn pink, stirring frequently.
Stir in almonds and rice; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Season with the salt and pepper.
