This shrimp may have changed the way I feel about Chinese food. Seriously. I’ve talked before about how I’m not a huge fan of Chinese, but this is actually a dish that I can get excited about. I can tell I’ll be making it often. [….]
Because of the holiday, laziness, and the brilliant idea of making grilled peanut butter-bacon-maple-banana sandwiches, I didn’t eat very healthily last week. By the time the weekend rolled around and it was time to plan my meals for this week, I was feeling pretty gross and in need of some extra-healthy, fresh meals. This one totally hit the spot. [….]
When I saw a saffron cream sauce over at The Pink Peppercorn, I immediately put it on my list of things to make. Then I saw another one over at Vlasta Loves to Cook, and it went on my list of things to cook immediately!
Saffron can be expensive, but I picked some up on a trip to Trader Joe’s for $2.99. As long as you have that on hand, this dish can easily be whipped up with ingredients that you’ll likely have on hand. A little milk, leftover heavy cream from making ice cream, some frozen bay scallops … a little bit of this, a little bit of that… and you have an amazing dish! [….]
