Recipe of the day
Shrimp and Celery
|Food Mall: Deveined Shrimp|
◦1/2 c chicken, beef or veggie stock
◦6 slices bacon
◦2 gloves garlic
◦1 T tomato paste
◦1 T chili garlic sauce
◦1 T minced thyme
Cut the ends off the celery roots and slice the skin off. Slice the root into 1/3′s, then rotate and slice into thick sticks, then slice into rough squares. Toss the roots into a pot of salted water and boil until softened, about 10 minutes. Get out your blender and place the roots inside, along with the stock and 2 T of bacon fat from the saute pan. Pulse until you reach a smooth consistency. Stir it around and/or add more stock if the mixture isn’t cooperating. S&P to your liking.
Cook your bacon in a saute pan. Once it’s browned, remove the bacon and crumble. Add the onion and garlic to the pan. Saute until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the shrimp, tomato paste, thyme, crumbled bacon and hot sauce. Cook until the shrimp have turned pink.
Place the celery into a bowl, add shrimp, crumbled bacon and many, many spoonfuls of the tomato gravy.
