French Dinner Rolls and Shrimp with Dipping Sauce

If you like shrimp you should try this recipe.  It is delicious and very easy to prepare.  I made French dinner rolls to serve with it but you can use any kind of bread.
 Here is the recipe for the rolls:

  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 package yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2  bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Add the warm water to your mixer bowl fitted with a dough hook attachment. Add the yeast and sugar. Let set for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the oil, flours and salt. Beat with a dough hook until dough comes together. If needed add a little more flour. Knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and satiny.
  3. Cover and let raise until doubled.
  4. Deflate dough and cut into 10 - 12 pieces. Roll into a rope. Tie a knot in the dough and place on a greased cookie sheet. Cover and let raise again.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.

 I brushed mine with butter before they covered and left to rise.

The shrimp recipe:

For the broth:
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun spice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 8 ounces clam juice or chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
For the shrimp:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

For the broth:
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, and in the melted cook black pepper, Cajun seasoning, and garlic, about 5 minutes. Add bouillon cube, clam juice, Worcestershire sauce, and sugar. Bring to a boil then turn down the heat to low until ready to serve.
For the shrimp:
In a large saute pan melt butter. Add Worcestershire, black pepper, Cajun seasoning, garlic and shrimp. Cook shrimp quickly, approximately 2 minutes.

You could also serve it over rice.

This mornings harvest.  It doesn't look like much.

But after a couple days it adds up.
