minced fresh ginger root
green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 cups
tomato - peeled, seeded and chopped
whole allspice berries
brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®)
1 1/2 pounds
medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
fresh cilantro, chopped
Oh wow...this mixes some sweet w/ a little heat! I left out the shallot -b/c I didn't have any- and I didn't have any allspice berries -I didn't even have ground allspice, so I put in a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and black pepper (google's substitution for allspice). I used tri-coloured rotini, for extra colour. Ohhh wow...I'm glad we tried something we normally wouldn't have...it was incredible! Will post a photo
nothing personal, but didn't like it at all. Sorry.
Made this for my husband and I on Valentines Day 2002.He raved that it was Delicous after each Bite! It was an easy recipe to make and we both loved it! This will be a Recipe I will make Quite often,for guests as well as the two of us!
I substituted fresh-squeezed orange juice for the Grand Marnier (same amount) with some orange zest from the peel thrown in for good measure. And I used about 1/4 tsp. allspice rather than the whole allspice berries the recipe calls for. And I left out the cilantro, since neither my partner nor I like the stuff.
The amount of chile paste specified in the recipe will make it very hot, so you might want to dial that down if hot/spicy isn't your thing.
This is an excellent and unique pasta dish. Even though I used a food processor, it does take some time to prepare the sauces, so if you want to save time, prepare them the day before. I will also try ground allspice vs. the whole berries. For me, biting into a whole allspice berry detracts from the enjoyment of this dish just a bit. My other personal preferences are to add 2 chopped jalapeños to heat the dish up a bit and double the Grand Marnier. I like the effect of the Grand Marnier and since it’s boiled, all of the alcohol is removed. Finally the cilantro really brings out the flavors. Don't leave it out!!
Good recipe. I didn't have shallots, chicken stock, or liqueur, but I did add a little orange juice and replaced the berries with allspice powder. I also didn't have enough shrimp, so I also added scallops, which turned out rather nicely. I think this would go well on top of rice, rather than with noodles.
This was a wonderful meal! I did subsitute a few items that I didnt have on hand. I used about 1/2 can of diced tomatoes. Instead of the Brandy based Orange Liquer, I used freshly squeezed Orange Juice. I also ommitted the curry powder. It turned out perfect! Thanks you for the great recipe!
This recipe was wonderfull. I didn't use any chile paste or curry powder (didn't have any). Instead I used red pepper flakes and the result was a dish with the perfect amount of kick. I also used plain brandy and a splash of orange extract in place of the Grand Marnier. I also used ground ginger and sundried tomatoes.
