“Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, and shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.” – Forrest Gump
Just at Forrest Gump said in the movie, there are a number of ways to prepare shrimp, and to be honest, I would like to try them all. For example, Addison Magazine RCA Winner for Favorite Seafood, Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse has Peel N’ Eat Shrimp, Shrimp Embrochette, different boiled combos with shrimp, Shrimp Po-Boys, Seafood Gumbo, and Shrimp Tacos just to name a few. Always fresh and made to order. There is a very good reason why Nate’s is a favorite around Addison and the Corridor, and you need to head there and find out the many reasons why it’s so.
Want to try something a little bit different? Maybe a nice date night spot? The Risotto Alla Veneziana or the Gamberi Al Signor Bart at Antonio Ristorante at Addison Circle is just what you need to impress your date. The Risotto Alla Veneziana is Arborio rice cooked with shrimp, scallops, and mussels in a cream saffron sauce and the Gamberia Al Signor Bart is shrimp sauteed in olive oil with garlic, serrano peppers, and spicy marinara for a nice kick and then tossed with linguini. Since we are still some weeks away from the summer heat, enjoy dinner out in their beautiful patio area. www.antonioristorante.com
How about the Mar Y Tierra at El Rincon also at Addison Circle? You get a 6oz marinated tenderloin, shrimp brochettes, chipotle mashed potatoes, a spinach enchilada with poblano sauce, pickled red onions, and chimichurri on the side. Talk about the best of both worlds! www.elrincontx.com
