If you like shrimp and you’re in the mood for a light, refreshing summer dish, this is it. The flavors in this salad are bright, it has a lot of crunch and it’s very refreshing on a hot day. It’s heading up to almost 100 in NYC today and I wish we hadn’t eaten all […]

Crab Cakes with Sweet Red Pepper Dressing

I have had a container of lump crab meat kicking around my refrigerator for months now. When I bought it, the expiration date was about a year out. The crab must be vacuum sealed to enable it to be kept for so long. Anyway, I made these crab cakes for dinner the other night. I […]

Cajun Jambalaya

Shrimp Toast

I host Christmas Eve dinner every year and I typically put out a platter of shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, but I wanted to do something different this year so I decided to try shrimp toast. I thought they were delicious – a tiny bit on the greasy side because they’re lightly fried in […]

Shrimp Salad

I first had this salad at my nephew Oliver’s First Communion party.  My sister Gail made it and it was delicious – so good that I asked to take some leftovers home.   Last week we had a picnic in Central Park with some friends as we listened to the Philharmonic perform an outdoor concert on […]
