long time readers know i usually write about recipes that i have created. or i post family recipes. once in awhile i talk about recipes that i have "tweaked" from another source, giving proper credit to the original of course. today i am sharing a recipe straight from martha stewart living...no edits or tweaks. it was just that good. so, just in case you don't get the magazine....or hesitated to try this dish...make it this week. you will not be disappointed.
i have made the shrimp stew three times so far. the first was during a visit to my parents' home. i spent two weeks with them and cooked most nights. i purchased all the ingredients and started preparing only to discover they were out of white wine. i improvised with vodka and the result was delicious. i have made the stew two additional times, once with white wine and another with the vodka. both work so use what you have. also, if you have never peeled/ deveined shrimp, please do not be intimidated. and whatever you do...do not skip this step. the shells add tons of flavor to the dish. this process is not hard, but it does take some time so plan accordingly. here is a "how to" video from serious eats. enjoy!
