Experiments in Food: Shrimp & Sweet Potato Mix
Some people, often called "experts", say that you should focus the content of your blog to help build an audience. Frell that!
Monday I decided to do a little experiment with food, and it was pretty good. Today I experimented a bit more with the left overs, and it's REALLY good. So here's my recipe.
Take 2 medium sized sweet potatoes. Chop them up into little quarter inch sized cubes. That's a bit smaller than a centimeter for you metric people. Take those cubes and throw them in a skillet (you'll need a pretty big skillet for this) with some olive oil, chives, dill, and garlic. I don't care of the garlic is chopped or pressed or just powdered stuff. Whatever you have handy. Cover and saute until tender.
Once you can put a fork easily into the cubes, throw in a bag of frozen corn, a bag of peeled uncooked shrimp, and half a stick of butter. If you use pre-cooked shrimp, it'll get rubbery. Keep sauteing all this until the butter is melted and the shrimp is cooked.
I ate it this way on Monday and it was good. Today I took the leftovers, nuked em until hot, and mixed in some salsa, and it was excellent. I used Pace Picante, probably 1 part salsa for 2 parts shrimp-potato mixture. Next time I make it, I'll serve it with salsa right away. I probably won't mix it in as I don't want to heat the salsa with leftovers.
