A southern specialty, sometimes called breakfast shrimp, this dish tastes great for brunch, dinner and when company’s coming. It’s down-home comfort food at its finest.—Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
A roasted red pepper sauce tops this hearty sandwich with a yummy crab filling. Rosalind Pope, of Greensboro, North Carolina says, “with almost no saturated fat, this is light because the mayonnaise has been replaced with non-fat plain yogurt, and it’s served on only half a bun!”
"We like scallops because of their availability here year-round, and they're affordable compared to some seafood," notes Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey. "These scallops are delicately seasoned with roasted tomatoes and can be served over rice or toasted garlic bread."
In Galesburg, Illinois, Sue Mackey simmers a flavorful marinara sauce for most of the day. Then shortly before mealtime, she simply adds cooked shrimp, which merely require being heated through. Served over spaghetti, it makes a delicious dressed-up main dish.
