Having guests tomorrow night and would like to make a special but easy shrimp dish with rice or pasta. This one inside sounds good but hubs is not a fan of artichokes (I love them). What could I sub or do you have something better? Oven or grill is fine.

Large shrimp and chunks of artichoke hearts are covered with crumbs, drizzled with garlicky butter and Romano cheese, and baked in the oven for just a few minutes until shrimp are tender and pink.

Go w/ the asparagus. How's everything w/you? We're hoping for a big snow MELT this week!

What a cute puppy, midwestchef!! Hope you and the Mr. are doing well!! Get that grill out!!! :) We are doing well in the Sunshine State! Golf, golf, golf!! Lol! Are you still planning a visit this way??
Jan. 10, 2013 8:23 am
We can't decide, although we did find a house/pet sitter. We are really having a tough time deciding whether to go or not...I guess that means we don't really want to go??

MWC, if it comes together and you feel comfortable, it was meant to be! Otherwise, it's not fun! Let me know! We are still undecided on a date to visit some friends in Sarasota but probably February. Maybe the stars will align! Lol!

This rendition of a classic dish of shrimp baked in butter, garlic, lemon juice and parsley, is even better with the help of Dijon-style mustard.

Wow! That sounds really good, Don! Stovetop is fine! I think part of this sauce could be made ahead of time to keep it easy! Appreciate it!

This ios the second time this morning that I've recommended this recipe from Baking Nana. It's easy if you have all the ingredients prepared and at the ready. The recipe does call for day old rice but fresh rice works fine as long as it is not over-cooked. (Sticky) ...

Thanks, Mike! Boy, that sure looks good!!
