This creation I've named "New Orleans." It can be served with spaghetti or rice. I chose spaghetti this time.
Ingredients: (serves up to 6 people)
2lbs of broccoli
1lb of shrimp (fresh or frozen)
1lb of frozen squid rings (totally optional)
1 stick of butter
2 1/2 tbsp of garlic
1 cup of virgin olive oil
2 1/2 tbsp of flour
1 jalapeno pepper diced up
Season salt (or salt and pepper or Mrs.Dash)
Spaghetti Or Rice
In a large skillet add 1 1/3 cup of water, broccoli and onion. Cook down until broccoli becomes tender, then drain a portion of the water. Add half stick of butter, season salt and cook until butter melts completely, then remove from fire.
Place squid and shrimp in smaller skillet with 1/2 stick of butter, garlic, diced jalapeno pepper, a few dashes of season salt, 2 1/2 tbsp of flour and saute until desired consistency. Now add to broccoli.
Serve over spaghetti or rice and BAM!! You have New Orleans.
This was served with Bar B Q chicken, but it can go great with steak or fish as well.
