If you’re entertaining this holiday season, but you’re short on time…or just plain don’t want to spend a ton of time slaving over the stove, these Baked Jumbo Shrimp are a lifesaver. If your shrimp are already thawed and cleaned, you can get these babies on the table in a flash. They make for an impressive presentation, but […]
Seriously, guys, this is so easy. It’s one of my favorite ways to bang out a delicious, stick-to-your ribs meal on a weeknight. Season the shrimp, cozy a half a slice of bacon around it, and fry in a really hot pan. By the time the bacon is crisped on each side, the shrimp will […]

For this pizza, you build layers of flavor by quickly sautéing the shrimp in a little bit of bacon fat and freshly cracked black pepper. The bacon adds a subtle smokiness that pairs really well with the asparagus.
I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I was the kind of kid who hid her lima beans behind the couch so she didn’t have to eat them. Hid, as in, concealed them.
