More Ideas for Leftovers:
Shrimp and Mushroom Omelet. Saute sliced shallots and crimini mushrooms in a little oil until tender. Add cooked shrimp and toss until the shrimp are just heated through. Whisk eggs with salt pepper and a little water. Pour into a heated skillet with a bit of melted butte. Cook until set on the bottom and almost set on top. Add the mushroom/shrimp filline and some grated fontina cheese. Fold the omelet and turn out onto a heated serving plate
Garlic Shrimp Linguine. Toss hot cooked linguinewith sauteed shrimp, garlic, shopped canned tomatoes and a splash of olive oil. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
NOTES : This recipe makes enough for the jambalaya, the bisque and the tacos. You can marinate the shrimp for up to 24hours, but after that drain and saute them until they're just cooked through. Cooked shrimp will keep in the refrigerator for about 3 days. Recipe by: SF Chronicle; Dec. 17, 1997 - WEEKEND COOK
