Sure thing! Bison potroast, yeast rolls, and various veggies sound good?

Been a while, gents. This thread moves so fast I almost feel lost! :lol:

Spinach chicken chickpea curryish, $10 total or under $2 per (hefty!) serving including a side of rice, 20-25 minutes cooking, clocking in at ~600-800 calories.

And if anyone's interested in recipes I can post those as well. These are usually $10-15 worth of ingredients, 20-45 minutes of cooking, usually one-pot, and feed 4-6. Three if you're hosting a couple offensive linemen.

Reuben, what is your favorite recipe (or favorites) for shrimp? Nice, big native Gulf whites.

Thanks in advance.

Honestly, with big, tasty shrimp I treat them like any other great piece of meat. I do as little as possible to them and make the meat the centerpiece. Good pieces of red meat I'll season with a little salt and pepper then sear on a skillet, shrimp I'd probably just peel them, lightly season them with some old bay or a little black pepper and lemon zest, then grill or pan-sear them on a skewer.

You are right Reuben, and I usually do just that. Simply prepared, drizzled with good EVO, placed on a nice arugula salad....

And I do make a few dishes that incorporate, as opposed to being ancillary to shrimp. One is a scampi over pasta with vermouth, butter, Italian herbs, capers, and finished with crushed garlic. Another is camarones al mojo de ajo in tortillas. Also shrimp marsala with mushrooms over angel hair.

Mmmm, those sound fantastic. I honestly don't do a ton of cooking with shrimp and fish, I've never lived on or spent a lot of time near the coast so it's been difficult to consistently get great seafood. I usually just go with whatever two or four-legged piece of game is closest to the front of the freezer, lots of quail and venison with a sprinkling of dove, elk, and bison. Also my chunk of the pig and cow we'll buy each year.

Edit: I do kinda remember one dish I made with shrimp that turned out fantastically, I think I sauteed them in olive oil with some red pepper flakes then served them over garlic sandy noodles with a squeeze of lemon, but I'm not sure. My girlfriend's also made a fantastic ceviche with fresh shrimp.

Aaand today's dinner is somewhat less than healthy, not too pretty either but dang tasty. I'm having a melt with smoked hog jowl, sautéed Vidalia onion, spicy brown mustard and extra-sharp cheddar cheese on unseeded rye bread:

Well, I had more spinach, chickpea and chicken curry for lunch plus it's more maintenance than loss at this point. I'm hovering around 195 and I'm pretty happy with that.

We always have black-eyed peas and collards on New Year's, as well. Looks great!
