Bacon Wrapped Sweet Chili Shrimp with Macadamia Recipe

This is a super fast and super easy recipe that everyone will love. It makes an impressive appetizer and is terrific for parties and special occasions.It uses pre-cooked bacon (found next to the regular bacon in the supermarket) to save time, but you can use your favorite bacon (pepper bacon would be great.) Just cook slowly over medium heat (or in the oven) until the bacon is cooked through but still flexible (not crisp)

Sweet chili sauce can be found in Asian grocery stores and in the Asian foods section of many supermarkets.

Shrimp And Feta Hand Pies Recipe

Try these easy to make hand pies: the crust is made with refrigerated pie crust sheets (available in the supermarket case with the refrigerated biscuit dough rolls) and they’re filled with a tasty Greek-style shrimp and feta cheese filling.You can give them a fancier look by fluting the edges, or a rough, homemade look by just rolling the edges up. Either way they’re creamy, savory, and very, very good.

In addition to being a terrific snack, you can serve them with a green salad for dinner, and they’re great as a hearty homemade lunch to take to the office.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 oz medium or large cooked shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped shallots (or onion)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black peppper
  • 15 oz package refrigerated pie crust sheets (2 rolled sheets)

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, combine the shrimp, feta, shallots, lemon juice, oregano, olive oil, and black pepper.Unroll the pie crust dough on a lightly floured work surface. Wet a one-inch border around the edge, then wet a one-inch wide ‘X’ across the dough (like the spokes of a wheel.) You’ll end up with four triangular ‘dry spots’ on the dough.

Divide the filling between the four triangles, then lay the second sheet of dough on top. Starting from the middle and working toward the edges, press out the air while sealing the dough around the filling. Cut the dough to separate the triangles, then fold or roll the edges.

Place the pies on a non-stick baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with a little coarse salt, if desired. Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

Pan-Roasted Halibut with Prosciutto, Lemon, White Wine, and Capers

Ingredients
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and freshly ground salt and pepper
2 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
Extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
2 slices prosciutto, cut into strips
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 teaspoons capers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley plus whole sprigs, for garnish
Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Put the flour on a deep plate or in a shallow bowl and season well with salt and pepper. Dredge the fish in the flour. Put a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and the butter and get the skillet hot. Add the fillets and cook until browned on 1 side, 2 to 3 minutes. At the same time, add the prosciutto and cook, stirring, to brown. Then flip the fish, put the skillet in the oven, and roast until the fish is just cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Remove the fish to 2 serving plates. Dump the prosciutto out onto paper towels to drain. Put the skillet back over medium heat. Add another tablespoon olive oil, the white wine, lemon juice, capers, the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the parsley and bring to a boil; boil until reduced and thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the fish, top with the prosciutto, and serve immediately.
