I hate cookbooks without pictures. How do I know if I want to make a recipe if I don't know what it will look like? My Mom always said, "The eye eats first." Well, you are just going to have to trust me on this one. I did not take a picture of last night's dinner because we ate it all up before I got my camera out. Not to sound corny but, it really tasted like it was from a restaurant.
The recipe is a Rachel Ray one. I liked the rich flavor, slightly spiciness, and ease of preparation. It only took me 20 minutes - start to finish. We also had some steamed broccoli with it. I only had shrimp on hand so I substituted an extra pound of shrimp where the recipe calls for scallops. I also coated the shrimp with the seasoned flour even though the recipe did not call for this step.
I rarely make a recipe twice. Not because we don't like it but, because I'm always trying new recipes. I have started a "Tried and True" file with all my favorite recipes. This one is definitely going in.
