Delicious shrimp

Our family went Moven Peak for buffet steamboat yesterday to celebrate "known anniversary". Hubby and I were known on 09.09.1999. This is the ninth year we known each other! I ate in about two dozens of shrimps! Shrimps are always my favorite, I love to cook my dishes with it. Life without shrimp will surely be miserable for me!

Ever heard about Great American Seafood cook off? It is a competition presented by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board featured top chefs from around the nation cooking with domestic, sustainable seafood from their home state.

The five finalists of the 2008 Great American Seafood Cook-Off were given a challenge to create a healthy and simple dish for the final round of competition. These dishes had to contain one of two mystery ingredients, either Southwest Airline Peanuts or select brews from Michelob Brewing Co, and the dish’s ingredients had to represent all five food groups and be a dish that even the most harried home chefs could prepare.

Among the five recipes listed, I would like to choose to cook Texas Gulf Shrimp, which was created by Chef Mark Holley from Texas. The shrimps are to put over hominy cakes with heirloom tomato relish drizzled with prickly pear gastrique. It definitely looks great with all kind of colors. It is rare but interesting to have shrimps and hominy cakes combined to create a dish. The ingredients are easily bought from anywhere. So why not we give it a try, cook now!
