    Favorite Cheese?

    I think I would have to say that one of my favorite cheeses is a good quality Swiss. I like the tanginess of it. Aged cheddar and Brie are pretty yummy...

    Need salt but healthy too
    spatUla
    I love potato chips. I crave salty snacks often. They are not good for you though. Anyone have any tips or recipes for healthy and salty snacks?

  • Shrimp rice

    I don't know if is not yet visible that i love SouthAmerican food. I was there spending holidays several years and manage to love the people and the food.
    This is one dish i think is really good you should try it

    Arroz con camarones or shrimp rice is a classic Ecuadorian and South American dish from the coastal areas consisting of rice cooked in a shrimp broth and mixed with shrimp, sautéed onions, peppers, tomatoes, garlic, cumin, achiote and parsley. Ecuadorians, and South Americans, love arroz or rice, we can’t live without it and eat rice almost every day, therefore we have a plethora of rice based dishes, anything you can think of and there is a rice based dish for it, especially if it concerns any type of seafood. The shrimp are marinated with salt, garlic and pepper and then cooked with the shells on in order to preserve the greatest amount of flavor, this is one of those bits of cooking wisdom that is passed on from generation to generation: always boil/cook shrimp with the shells on. The rice is then cooked in the broth or water in which the shrimp were cooked, and then mixed with a refrito or sofrito made from the onions, pepper, garlic, tomatoes, parsley, achiote, cumin and white wine. I served the shrimp rice with avocado slices, tomato and onion curtido, lime slices and aji or hot sauce, it can also be served with fried ripe or green plantains.

    Ingredients:

    2 lbs raw shrimp, shells on, deveined

    2 tsp cumin

    4 garlic cloves, crushed

    4 garlic cloves, minced

    2 tbs canola or sunflower oil

    2 cups uncooked rice

    3 tbs butter

    1 red onion, diced

    1 bell pepper, diced

    2 tomatoes, peeled and seeded, diced

    3 tbs parsley, finely chopped, plus more to garnish

    1 tsp ground achiote or annatto

    ½ cup of white wine

    Salt and pepper

    Preparation:

    Marinate the shrimp with salt, pepper, 1 tsp of cumin, and the crushed garlic, let rest for an hour.
    Bring water to boil in a large pot, add the shrimp and boil for about 2 minutes.
    Remove the shrimp from the water and reserve 2 ½ cups of the water they cooked in to prepare the rice.
    Remove the shells and tails from the shrimp; leave the tails on a few of the shrimp that will be used as a garnish. Chop about half of the shrimp in half and leave the other half whole.
    Heat the oil in a large saucepan or pot, add the minced garlic, cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium heat.
    Add the rice to the garlic and oil, mix well until the rice is coated with oil.
    Add the 2 ½ cups of water that was used to boil the shrimp. Bring to boil and reduce heat to low.
    In the meantime, melt the butter over medium heat in a large sauté pan; add the onions, peppers, tomatoes, parsley, ground achiote, salt, pepper, and remaining 1 tsp of cumin. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring often.
    Add the white wine to the vegetable mix and continue cooking for another 5 minutes, until the onions and peppers are tender.
    Mix in the sautéed vegetables and chopped shrimp with the rice, which should still be cooking, and cook on low heat until the rice is tender.
    Add the remaining shrimp during the last minutes and mix well.
    Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
    Sprinkle with chopped parsley and garnish with shrimp with tails on.
    Serve with avocado slices, tomato and onion curtido salad, lime slices, and of course some good aji or hot sauce.
