Stewed Tomato and Cheesy Shrimp ala' Zibbs Recipe.

Posted by Picasa



Here's a cheesy dish I'll dub Stewed Tomato and Shrimp ala' Zibbs. Here's how to make it.
(serves 4 or one big fat guy)

Ingredients
4 onions
3 cans stewed tomato
Mushrooms
salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
1 lb. shrimp
Chicken stock
Olive oil
Cheese. I used velveeta because it's all I had on hand.

Instructions

- Heat skillet to medium high and add olive oil. Season shrimp then cook shrimp for about 1 minute per side. Remove from pan.
- Heat onions until translucent then lower heat to medium and add garlic.
- Add stewed tomatoes, mushrooms and about half cup of stock.
- Lower heat to simmer and cook for about 20 minutes or until shrimp is cooked.
- Add some of the velveeta and stir until nice and smooth. Cheese also thickens the dish so you may need to add a bit more stock if needed.

Velveeta is actually pretty good in this dish but don't use too much. I really only use velveeta as a back up cheese so use any cheese that melts well.

You can then serve this over pasta or rice. I also like to drip Tabasco over it.

Enjoy.

This isn't your typical Sunday breakfast dish. Trust me, I just tried it out.

Damn you and your timing, Zibbsy!

Dr Zibbs said...

Numberonesistah - I can do it all. Except fix things.

Poo - Just even things out by having eggs for dinner.

Does Tabasco kick it up a notch? BAM! Sounds good.

pinkjellybaby said...

Oh my, that sounds lovely! I might just have to try that!

Dr Zibbs said...

Miss Clover - I post recipes once in while but I'm all man.

Girl Interrupted said...

Looks great, (blessed are the cheese makers) but I'm allergic to shrimp ... can you recommend a substitute?

noble pig said...

That is serious goodness in a pan.

Greta said...

Zibbs! There's whole shrimps swimming in your vomit!

Lol. Just jokin. It's probably yummy. Just vomitty lookin.

Michelle said...

I think orzo would compliment this dish very nicely!! Fontina cheese would work well. It's a nice melty cheese and a little better than velveeta.

WONDERFUL!!!!

I see you're branching out in ways of talking about yourself. Seriously though, it looks good. xo

LegalMist said...

Mmmmmm.... cheese and shrimp.... my two favorite ingredients! And that looks *delicious*!! But I'm too lazy to cook, so I'll just hop a plane and come by your house for some, ok? I should be there in 6 or 7 hours...

Dr Zibbs said...

Legal Mist - if you're OK doing the dishes and it were 3 hours earlier I'd say fine.

Dr Zibbs said...

Just so you all know, I'm about to go to bed but I was just admiring this photos again and do you know what? I could be a food photographer.

I mean - look at the picture of that shrimp dish. It's perfect.

I think we can all agree with Skywind (whatever)

Andrew Rodriguez said...

I can't figure out if skywind is being deliberately obtuse, or if somehow English is not his first language?

Donna-FFW said...

What a fantastic dish. How have I not found you before? Your blog looks like a blast with extras! Thanks for stopping by.. keep coming back!

Jeannie said...

I would never in a million years buy Velveeta. I'm not sure any store in Canada sells it now anyway.
How small are your tins of tomatoes? Or alternatively, how many people are you cooking for?

Otherwise, this sounds really tasty. I'm surprised I haven't already thought of it.

slopmaster said...

What is this? a cooking blog????

I'll try it though, although some of those ingredients are not found in Africa.

Dr Zibbs said...

Andrew - I hear you.

Susan said...

That looks AMAZING....

mo.stoneskin said...

Um, nice.

Think I'll pass.

Is that a blue yak I can see in there?!

buffalodick said...

Sounds like something I'd eat- and make!

moooooog35 said...

You're like a regular Rachael Ray but with bigger tits.

Asphodel said...

Zibbsy, you make my tummy go "grrrrrrowl"

Jennifer and Sandi said...

That looks de-lish!! It would kill me though if I ate it. (I'm alergic to shrimp) CRAP!!!

cheese... shrimp... drool.

Kimmie said...

This is the second in as many food posts that you used Velveeta! (Chiles Rellenos ring a bell?) And you "don't use it much?" :P

Dr Zibbs said...

Kimmie - you busted me. But the only reason for this is that sometimes when I cook I just use what I have in the fridge. I swear.

Kimmie said...

Well I hope you used the rest of the Velveeta. That stuff must have some shelf life!

Mella said...

Holy fuck, that looks good. I'll be making that next weekend, I think!

Dr Zibbs said...

Kimmie - my grandparents got it in 1912. It's been passed down.

Gwen said...

Yes! That looks delicious. I love the idea of having it over rice. Yum.
