Cajun Shrimp Stuffed Poblanos

Basically everything about this appealed to me – spicy shrimp, poblano peppers, manchego and goat cheese…..talk about a combo made in heaven!

I used a little over a pound of peeled and deveined shrimp. Coat them with EVOO and a couple of tablespoons of Cajun seasoning. Lay them out on a lined cookie sheet and roast at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes depending on the size of your shrimp.

Once they’ve cooled, chop them up and toss them into a mixing bowl. Add 8oz goat cheese, 8oz shredded manchego, 18-20 chopped basil leaves, and 2+ tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce. Stir until thoroughly combined.

Clean the seeds ands ribs out of 3-4 poblanos and fill with the shrimp mixture. Roast in a 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Top with chopped cilantro and more hot sauce. Enjoy!😋

Shrimp Enchiladas with Poblano Cream Sauce

Yes, clearly I am drawn to the same types of recipes. Modern, Mexican inspired meals are just the favorite in my house. We still have some stockpiled local shrimp (I mean, we did buy 60lbs in October🤪), so I wanted to try something new with those. Something totally fresh from all of the holiday “stuffing” that’s been happening since November.😁 Begin by melting 2tbl butter over medium heat. Now whisk in 2tbl flour and stir quickly for a couple of minutes. Slowly combine 1.5C chicken bone broth. Add in 3/4C plain Greek yogurt. Stir in 1 diced poblano (separate out 2tbl of the pepper that will be used in step 2) and 1/2tsp garlic powder. Allow mixture to thicken and then salt and pepper to taste. Stir in 1C shredded Monterey Jack cheese, once melted remove from heat. Add in 2tbl chopped, fresh cilantro and set aside.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Toss 1.5lbs of peeled and deveined shrimp in EVOO, S&P, and roast on a lined baking sheet for 6-8 minutes (depending on the size of your shrimp). Cut into bite sized pieces and set aside.

Warm 2tbl EVOO over medium heat and add 1/2C chopped onion. Once translucent, add in 1tbl minced garlic and the 2tbl of diced poblano that you set aside. Sauté for a minute or so and then add 1.5C matchstick carrots and 3C baby spinach plus a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce. Once spinach wilts, remove from heat and add in your shrimp.

Using freshly cooked flour tortillas, wrap about 1/3C of your mixture topped with Monterey Jack cheese. Lay seam side down in a prepared baking dish. Cover enchiladas with about half of your sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

Remove and cover with remaining sauce plus another tablespoon of chopped, fresh cilantro. Serve with avocado, hot sauce, fresh jalapeños, etc. Enjoy! Adapted From: Gimme Some Oven

Honey Cilantro Shrimp

We are SO very lucky to live by the water where fresh seafood is easy to come by. I could eat shrimp every day. Yes, every single day. My husband is an amazing grill master. Thank goodness, since he is no use in the kitchen. Lol!

These shrimp literally take no time to make and taste amazing. We paired them with my husband’s superb filet and a salad….it truly felt like date night!

Warm 1tbl EVOO and 1tbl butter over medium heat. Add a pound or more of fresh shrimp and a teaspoon+ of minced garlic. Sauté for about 3-5 minutes until shrimp are pink. 

While shrimp are cooking combine:

-Juice of a lime, 3tbl chopped cilantro, 1tbl soy sauce, and 3tbl honey. 

Once shrimp have cooked through, pour mixture into saucepan and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Serve with slotted spoon over salad, pasta, quinoa, anything really. Enjoy!
