Nyonya Grilled Shrimp with Coconut Sauce

Nyonya Grilled Shrimp with Coconut Sauce

This Food and Wine recipe uses a lot of spices I use very infrequently, such as turmeric, coriander, cloves and curry.  I wasn’t sure how it would come out and didn’t want any of those spices to overwhelm the flavor.

When it was ready, I was really happy with how the flavors came together.  Although the sauce is called coconut sauce, the garlic, jalapenos and lime came out the most noticeably with the coconut as a faint mellowing influence.  It tasted great, though.

The shrimp marinade left them with just a touch of curry flavor.  I would recommend this recipe and think it would be spectacular with some margaritas!

Zucchini with Green Chile and Cheese and Grilled Potato and Shallot Packages with BBQ Chicken

This zucchini recipe is a favorite side with our family.  I was so happy to find that my mom’s cousin Andrea put it into the wonderful cookbook full of recipes that our family gave us as a wedding gift.  I reduced the quantity of the recipe to serve 2-4.

2 large zucchinis, sliced
½ cup chopped roasted green chile (around three chiles)
½ cup chopped onion
garlic powder or salt
salt and pepper
1/8 loaf velveeta cheese

Slice and boil squash.  When water boils, add onions.  Continue to boil until zucchini is soft enough to mash with a fork.  Drain water, mash squash, drain again.  Add cheese and chile.  (I didn’t have velveeta so I used Colby Jack and American). Stir over low heat while cheese melts.  Season to taste.  This is a great side dish for when you barbeque chicken or burgers!

Grilled Potato and Shallot Packages

I adapted this from the Grilled Potato and Onion Packages recipe from Epicurious.  The only changes I made were to use red potatoes instead of white and to use chopped shallots instead of red onions.  I made a couple extra servings to use in hash browns for breakfast tomorrow.  Both of these side dishes are great with barbequed chicken on the grill.
