It’s the perfect time of year to enjoy a platter of fried green tomatoes. Every summer I can’t wait to try them in some new recipe. This year I made a salad loaded with quartered fried green tomatoes, Aussie shrimp, bits of fried bacon and the most delicious remoulade dressing I’ve tasted since the old days at the Cafe Oceano in Albuquerque. The Cafe is long gone now but I still remember the days of chalkboard seafood specials and the house remoulade dressing which was so good in my memory. This salad is like a serving of Southern hospitality with warm tomatoes, spicy shrimp and bacon on top. But don’t worry if you have any leftovers. Even chilled, this salad tastes great!

My favorite grilled shrimp comes from a copycat recipe for Outback’s Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie. This is such a quick and simple meal to put together . . . you only need a blend of spices, melted butter and some lemon wedges. The spice blend is perfect and makes for the best grilled shrimp to serve as an appetizer, topper for a salad, shrimp tacos, or even as the main event. I served these beauties alongside a bowl of creamy risotto and a tomato salad. It was yummy to say the least! If you want to show off, dunk these in a Remoulade Sauce that will make everyone smile. It’s a big hit around here and expected at every shrimp gathering! Hope you enjoy!
