recipe: spicy grilled shrimp with panko bread crumbs

for the shrimp:
12 large shrimp with shell, uncooked
1/4 C canola oil
1 clove garlic minced
1 jalapeno, minced
or 1 fresno chili if you like it mild
zest of 1/2 a lemon
pinch chili flake
salt and pepper to taste

for the panko bread crumb topping:
1/2 C panko bread crumbs
2 tblsp cilantro, chopped
1 tblsp canola oil
zest of 1/2 lemon
pinch of chili flake
salt and pepper to taste
lemon to garnish

1. Combine all the marinade ingredients—everything but the shrimp—and set aside.

2. Using a small, sharp knife, split the shrimp down the middle on the underside—make sure not to cut all the way through but do remove the dirty bits in the process.

3. In a zip-top bag, mix the shrimp and marinade then refrigerate 20-30 minutes.

4. While the shrimp is marinading make the panko breadcrumb topping.

5. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over med-high heat. Add panko and sitr until toasted about 3 minutes. Add cilantro, lemon and chili flake and cook for another 30 seconds. Remove from heat and let cool.

6. Heat grill or grill pan to med-high heat. Once hot, brush grates with a little canola oil and place the shrimp flesh side down. Cook 1 minute, then flip and finish shell side down for another 2-3 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp.

7. Remove from grill, arrange on a serving dish, sprinkle with toasted panko, and serve with sliced lemons and cilantro.

Adam’s hints:
—If you’re not familiar with panko, learn more about it here.
—When grilling, you might need to press down with a spatula since they’ll curl a little.
—This recipe can also be made with smaller shrimp, but I like to use large because it’s a fun presentation.
—I also use this marinade on medium peeled and cleaned shrimp: saute over high heat and serve with pasta topped with these bread crumbs. Its a fantastic meal!

recipe: hearty banana bread

photo by: whitneyinchicago 1-1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 C pure cane sugar
2 very ripe bananas
3/4 C walnuts, chopped
1/2 C Greek yogurt
1 stick unsalted butter
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
just under 1 tsp of sea salt

1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F, butter sides of a loaf pan and set aside.
2. Using a pastry cutter, blend the sugar and butter in a medium to large bowl.
3. Add the eggs, yogurt, bananas and mix with a fork to smash the bananas.
4. Add all other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
5. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes.
6. Pierce with a toothpick and consider the bread done when the it comes out clean.
7. Remove from the oven and—to help keep it moist—cover with a kitchen cloth while it cools.


recipe: irish soda bread

photo by: TheLizardQueen4 C whole wheat flour, stone-ground
2 C all-purpose flour
2 C buttermilk
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp salt

1. Mix the flours, soda and salt in a bowl.

2. Form the mixture into a bowl shape and gradually pour the buttermilk into the center—about a cup to start. Mix ingredients with a wooden spoon or spatula, then by hand as it gets firmer.

3. Knead a bit on a floured counter surface then, on a lightly floured baking sheet, pat down the ball of dough and cut a deep cross on top using a knife dipped in flour—to avoid sticking and pulling the dough—the cross-cut will make it easier to break apart later.

4. Lightly sprinkle the top with flour and bake in a pre-heated oven at 425°F for about 25 minutes, then 350°F for about 15 minutes.

—let it sit on a baking rack until it’s cooled and if the crust seems too hard, wrap the loaf in a clean, damp kitchen towel.
—unless you’ll be eating the whole loaf right away, don’t cut into it until it’s set, which is about 6 hours after it comes out of the oven. This will keep it moist instead of drying out quickly.
