Shrimp de Jonghe

Shrimp De Jonghe

I love shrimp and sometimes, you just want something different. This dish is definitely that! You won’t believe how simple it is to make.

2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup dry white wine (low-carbers just substitute this with chicken broth and some more butter)
1 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 cup butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 shallot, minced
2 cups fresh bread crumbs ( if I am doing the low-carb version I use 1 cup coconut flour and 1/2 cup almond flour)
1 cup chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 11×7 casserole dish with butter.

Place the shrimp in a single row on the bottom of the dish.

Pour the wine and broth over the shrimp .

In a medium bowl, combine together the melted butter, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, shallot, paprika, parsley and bread crumbs.

Sprinkle the mixture over the shrimp and pat down gently.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the shrimp is completely cooked through and the top is golden brown.


Fried Vegetable and Paneer Kofta Balls

Fried Vegetable & Cheese Kofta BallsKofta Ball Ingredients
2 cups cauliflower, grated
2 cups cabbage, grated
1 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Asafoetida (omit if you do not have it)
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
2 tablespoons garlic paste
1 tablespoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon poppy seeds lightly roasted and ground into a powder
3 tablespoons cashews ground into a thick paste
24 cubes of paneer cheese
Enough coconut oil to fry the koftas in (feel free to use any oil that you have at home)
Set aside another 1/2 cup of almond flour so you can roll the balls in the inf you want a more defined exterior coating.

Mint Chili Sauce Ingredients
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic
2 tablespoons mint leaves
1/4 piece of red chili pepper
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Kofta Ball Directions
Combine all of the ingredients together but the last two. Allow them to sit in a large bowl together for 30 minutes to allow the dry ingredients to get absorbed into the vegetables and the flour to absorb all of the liquid.

You can make the balls as large or as small as you want. I like to make them big enough so I can safely pop one in my mouth without looking like I just stuffed my face. Place a piece of paneer at the center and then roll the dough into balls. This recipe usually makes 24.

Bring the oil up to 350 degrees F.

Fry a few at a time, make sure you do not overcrowd the pan so the temperature stays up and they all brown evenly. Allow the balls to dry on paper towels. Serve with the sauce.

Mint Chili Sauce Directions
Combine all of the ingredients together in the blender and blend. Serve on the side or directly over the fried balls.
