    You didn't give much detail other than no pasta. If you've got veggies you
    could do stir fry. Shrimp scampi, grilled shrimp etc.

    Saute in butter with fresh garlic and serve over rice with your favorite
    vegetable. I love snow peas with rice.

    If you have arborio rice, do what I did a couple of nights ago and make
    shrimp risotto. Mmmmmmmmm. 'Twas truly yummy.

    What else ya got? There's millions of shrimp recipes, most of which
    call for some other ingredients. I'd recommend #394,092 but I don't
    know if you have the chipotles in adobo that you need for it. -aem

    Do you have:
    flour
    vegetable oil
    green pepper
    onion
    celery
    tomato (canned ok)

    If so, you can make gumbo.

    Make a dark roux from equal amounts of fat and flour; I make mine in the
    oven (375F for about an hour, stir 2 or 3 times)
    cook the diced peppers/onion/celery in the roux until clear
    while the veggies cook, cook the shrimp, save the water, heads and tails and
    boil down to make shrimp stock to about half, strain and toss the heads and
    tails, reserve stock
    when veggies are cooked, add a cup of diced, peeled and seeded tomato and a
    cup of the shrimp stock
    just before serving, add the shrimp to reheat

    If using frozen precooked shrimp, thaw shrimp in water; remove the tails and
    and use that and the water to make stock (it'll be weak but better than
    plain water)

    Serve with rice if you have it; or just eat it with bread and butter.

    Since it is 620 EDT....I am sure that you are getting very hungry. Now
    it is two hours later....and supper is getting behind you at this
    point.

    Here is something we like.

    @@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

    Bam Bam Shrimp

    none

    1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined smalle; r shrimp works best
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1/4 cup thai sweet chili sauce
    3-5 drops hot chili sauce, just a few drops
    1/2 3/4 cup cornstarch
    oil for frying

    Mix the mayonnaise and sauces for the coating. Bread the shrimp in
    cornstarch. Deep fat fry the shrimp until lightly brown. Drain on a
    paper towel. Put the shrimp into a bowl and coat with the sauce. Serve
    in
    a lettuce lined bowl and top with chopped scallions.

    Do you have any wooden skewers, a grill, garlic and olive oil?

    Defrost the shrimp in cold water. Put some garlic (either mashed cloves
    or granulated or garlic powder) in a bowl and mix it with a couple
    tablespoons of good olive oil.

    Before you start, put the wooden skewers in water to soak Peel and
    de-vein the shrimp. You can leave the tails on. After cleaning and
    peeling each shrimp, wipe it with a paper towel and stick it in the bowl
    with the garlic oil. Give it a stir. Continue with all the shrimp.


    When finished peeling and cleaning, take the skewers from the water and
    thread on the shrimp. I usually put them through the skewers twice.

    Grill (or broil) the skewered shrimp until they turn opaque, about 2-3
    minutes per side.

    These are always yummy and surprisingly sweet.

    Shell them and marinate them with a bit of sesame oil and a teaspoon of
    salt. Finely chop a few gloves of garlic and some ginger root. Heat up a
    wok (or fry pan) add a bit of oil, toss in the garlic and ginger and,
    stir it around once or twice and add the shrimp. Toss some chopped
    green onion at the end and serve.

    I made shrimp in pesto cream sauce. Served it over a teeny bit of
    Dreamfields linguine with an insalata Caprese. I had bought some basil
    for the salad and my yard-keeping folks showed up this morning with a
    lovely basil plant for "the senora" I used the packaged basil for the
    pesto and the stuff that I'd planted for the insalata.

    I'd lost my beautiful basil plant to hurricane Dolly. I thought I'd lost
    all the mint, but a piece of it seems to have survived. I gave it some
    Miracle Grow as a reward <g>
