We have had storms a few nights this past week…the old warm meets the cold air stuff. There are some leaves down from the trees and away from here trees are down and some people were without electricity. We got about 3-4 inches of rain this week. Our new rain gauge is a foreign one and we have yet to figure it out.
There was only only one doctor’s appointment this week, a pair of broken glasses fixed, and antibiotics for my tooth troubles. We began carving on those Christmas ornaments and we tried a new recipe.
Far Guy thought I was very courageous cooking something that is way out of the box for me.
Sheet Pan Shrimp Broil
1 pound red potatoes cut into chunks
3 ears corn, each cut crosswise into 6 pieces
1/4 cup - 1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
Boudin ( boo-dahn) sausage fron Floyd and Jess in Louisiana
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until just tender and parboiled, about 10-13 minutes. Stir in corn during the last 5 minutes of cooking time; drain well.
In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic and Old Bay Seasoning.
Place potatoes, corn, shrimp and sausage in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Stir in butter mixture and gently toss to combine.
Place into oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and corn is tender
It makes enough for at least two meals, if I make this again I will pare it down some. It was a good way to use that Boudin Sausage that was languishing in the freezer. Boudin is a Cajun mixture of meat, rice and seasonings. Next time I will use a different type of sausage…maybe even a brat or two.
This whole meal is best served with beer…it was an after thought for us! If you have an old cookie sheet to use on the grill you could put this on the grill too…of course it will take a bit longer.
Just so you know I separated all of these foods on my plate.
The Baptisia australis is blooming. It’s common name is Blue False Indigo.
