Simple Fried Shrimps

Simple Fried Shrimps

Simple recipe to fry shrimps. I cooked shrimps in shell, but cleaned ones will work for this recipe as well.

Make sure you don’t overcook shrimps (turn them over as soon as meat becomes white), or meat will turn hard and shrimps will be hard to clean.

You can also use garlic oil instead of cooking garlic with oil, if you have it on hand.

Shrimps in Sour Cream Sauce

Shrimps in Sour Cream Sauce

Fast recipe to fix shrimps: simmer them for few minutes in sour cream and butter sauce.

I used raw cleaned shrimps for the recipe. But boiled ones will work as well, just reduce cooking time and temperature (no need for boiling).

Shrimps prepared this way can be a dish on its own, an appetizer or a snack, or it can be served over a bed of rice or pasta.

Boiled Shrimps

Boiled Shrimps

Store sold ready to use cooked shrimps can be used for recipes which call for boiled shrimps (salads, soups, stir fries, etc). Or you can boil raw shrimps and get more tender, tasty and less expensive version of store sold cooked shrimps.

Shrimps cooked this way also work great as a meal on its own, snack for beer or an appetizer.

Use fresh or frozen shrimps, shell-on or fully cleaned ones, or even whole shrimps (these will require more cleaning after though). You can also use this recipe to “unfreeze” cooked shrimps and infuse them with spices (just reduce cooking time to not overcook them).

Usually package instructions say to thaw frozen shrimps before cooking, but I don’t do it. Cooking frozen raw shrimps this way works for me just as good not frozen ones and it also saves time.

Cooking time will depend on size of shrimps: the smaller shrimps are, the less time for cooking they require – turn heat off as soon as shrimps float to the surface (this means they are cooked enough).

Shrimp, Egg and Potato Layered Salad

Shrimp, Egg and Potato Layered Salad

This salad is often referred to as “Shrimps Under Fur Coat” salad, here two shrimp layers are dressed in layer of grated potatoes, eggs, mayo and topped with red caviar.

I know red caviar is not something people here buy and eat all that often, but if you decide to try this salad I suggest to get caviar from the local european or russian store.

This salad need some time to settle down after assembling, so prepare it at least 6 hours prior to serving.

Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad Recipe

Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad Recipe

This unusual combination of ingredients yields pretty interesting salad. And it tastes best then prepared right before serving.

Original recipe calls for 10 quail eggs, but I find them somehow hard to find here, so I used 2 chicken eggs as replacement.

Pineapples themselves are optional ingredient, you can skip on them if you wish so, but with them salad tastes more interesting.

Fried Rice with Shrimps

One more recipe for fried rice, this time with shrimps.

As any fried rice, it is pretty easy and fast to cook, especially if you use frozen vegetables, just don’t forget to unfreeze them as well as shrimps in advance before cooking.

Most of the salt for this recipe comes from soy sauce, only eggs need a bit of additional salting.

Shrimp and Asparagus Salad

Shrimp and Asparagus Salad

Shrimps and asparagus with dill and cream is quite unusual combination for me, but I must say it tastes delicious. I ate something similar when we lived in Austria and wanted to reproduce the recipe ever since.

It tastes especially good if asparagus is young and you manage to not overcook it to keep crunchy texture. Lemon juice helps to brings the best taste out of asparagus.

By the way, if you use frozen shrimps, thaw completely them before adding to salad.
