I have lived in this close-knit community all my life and enjoy cooking Cajun dishes, especially those with seafood. Along with a green salad and garlic bread, this dish is great for family gatherings. The recipe can easily be doubled to serve a larger group, and if you’d like it less spicy, remove the seeds from the jalapeno before chopping it. —Carolyn Lejeune, Welsh, Louisiana
"We first experimented with this recipe using fresh crappie," writes Marsha Sullins of Longview, Texas. "We liked it so much, the next night I used it with bass. When my friend tried it on red snapper, I concluded it's just awesome with any fish."
Mealtime is so much fun and filled with laughter and conversation when fondue is on the menu. I created this recipe after tasting something similar in a restaurant. Family and friends request it often.
“I grew up in Biloxi, Mississippi, where rice, garlic and seafood are staples in Gulf Coast cuisine," says Amie Overby, now of Reno, Nevada. "This dish is an easy, long-time family favorite that's ready in minutes.”
Red pepper flakes, ginger and garlic lend a spicy touch to this seafood stir-fry. Pea pods, carrots and Chinese cabbage give the dish a fresh taste that's more than welcomed as the season changes. -The L&T Home Economists
“My husband enjoys many different types of food and never minds one-dish meals,” writes Isabel Karon from Longville, Minnesota. This recipe is a flavorful favorite and perfect for a pair!
