Hello People…it’s with great humbleness, I present to you, Shrimp Mac and Cheese.
Just kidding! This Shrimp Mac and Cheese is, da bomb!
Yes, I promise you when you make it, you want ever, I mean ever want to make another mac and cheese recipe again!
Let me take a moment to explain what I mean.
First off, I must take a moment to thank my foodie friend, Marc Hurwitz, founder and owner of Boston’s Hidden Restaurants.
Marc, like myself loves great food, and this is when the vision was born…Exhibit A!
Marc posted the above picture on Facebook of Lobster Mac and Cheese.
First, start off with boiled pasta cooked about 2 minutes less than al dente.
Secondly, mix up my wonderful seasoning blend!
I used creole seasoning, paprika, black pepper, onion and garlic powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
After sauteing veggies in olive oil, I added the seasoned shrimp instead of lobster, and cook for a few minutes, remember the shrimp will finish cooking in the oven.
Lastly, I mixed up the cream sauce, tossed in the pasta, shrimp, and veggie mixture.
Prior to baking, top with extra cheese and our butter, parley, and panko bread crumbs.
Sometimes I’ll just top it with cheese and omit the panko.
It all depends on how my taste buds are feeling.
Hot out the oven, baked for about 20 minutes and broiled for a few minutes more.
Look at this!
I know you want a bite?
I highly suggest you make this.
