  • ½ t ground pepper
  • ¼ t salt
  • 1 lb hot Italian sausage (or your favorite sausage), each sausage cut into two pieces
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) low sodium great northern beans, drained and rinsed

Then you will…

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

  3. Mix in the sausage.
  4. Bake 35 minutes, until the sausages are roasted and cooked through. Stir once in the middle of the baking time.
  5. Stir in the beans.

Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic Shrimp)

April 20, 2015

20150410 Gambas

Gambas al Ajillo is a delicious Spanish dish, especially if you like seafood and garlic. There are a few steps here that can be done in advance, like preparing the seasoned olive oil. This will keep the day-of cooking down to a minimum.

You will need:

  • 10 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled with shells reserved
  • 1/2 c olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/4 t red pepper flakes
  • 1 t sherry vinegar

Then you will…

  1. Mince 4 cloves of the garlic.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together 3 tablespoons of olive oil with the minced garlic, salt, paprika and lemon zest.
  3. Toss the shrimp with the olive oil seasoning mixture. Set aside.
  4. Crush 4 cloves of the garlic.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over low heat.
  6. Add the crushed garlic with the shrimp shells and red pepper flakes.
  7. Cook, stirring regularly, for about 10 minutes. You want to keep the oil at a gentle simmer.
  8. Strain the hot oil through a fine sieve to remove the shrimp shells and cooked garlic. (You can throw away the used shells and garlic).
  9. Thinly slice the remaining two cloves of garlic.
  10. Return the hot oil to the skillet on medium heat.
  11. Add the sliced garlic to the skillet and sauté until just starting to brown.
  12. Add the shrimp, lemon juice and sherry vinegar.
  13. Sauté for 2 minutes.
  14. Season the shrimp to taste and serve with crusty bread to sop up the sauce.
