Shrimp Creole originated in South Louisiana where gulf shrimp are plentiful. The shrimp are simmered in a spicy tomato sauce and the dish is served over rice. It makes a great one-pot meal for family gatherings or potlucks.
Decadent and delicious and might just become your go-to dessert. The recipe may seem complicated, but think of it this way. You'll have four bowls for four components that you combine in the end. Melted chocolate, sugar and yolks, meringue, and finally whipped cream. Of course you'll want extra whipped cream for topping and plenty of shaved chocolate.
Total Time: 1 hour plus 2 hours and up to overnight for chilling
Yield: Enough mousse for one 9-inch 4-layer cake; serves 4 to 6 in dessert cups
Traditional Vietnamese spring rolls are almost always served with this style peanut sauce. It has a sweet salty element that goes perfectly with the fresh flavors of the spring rolls. I suggest making this sauce in a double batch because it goes quickly. It will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
