    Shrimp and Pasta: (might seem like a lot, but it is made in 15-20mins.)

    olive oil (1 tsp. about)

    1 tables. butter

    3 cloves of chopped garlic



    1 C. Dry Vermouth Wine

    3 tablespoons Paprika

    Chopped Parsley

    Sharp Chedder Cheese (white) (Grated)

    Dishes that can go under the broiler

    *note: these amounts change depending on how many you make this for*

    Cover pan with olive oil and butter and sautee garlic until cooked. Added the wine to the pan over medium heat and let the alcohol cook out. Then added the paprika to pan and mix it together. Then add the shrimp (perferably big shrimp) to the pan and cook just until they turn pink and take out and put in a bowl. (the sauce should yield enough to add to the pasta later)

    Boil Linguini until al dente. Once cooked put linguini on each person's plate and put about 5 shrimp on top of the linguini. Put chopped parsley and grated cheese on top of the pasta and shrimp (as much or less parsley and cheese according to your taste). Then the sauce of olive oil, paprika and Vermouth, take that as it should be reduced and put 2 tablespoons of sauce over the pasta.

    Turn on broiler and once it is hot, put the dishes one by one into the over and broil until cheese is melted on top.

    This is easy easy, and, delicious! From Hawaii, too!

    Blend 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 Cup of Soy Sauce, and, 1/2 Cup of Honey. Be sure to mix steadily to dissolve the honey. Take about 1 pound of shrimp, raw with shells on, and place in the Marinade. Marinade for maybe 2 - 3 hours in the frig. To cook, you can grill or steam the morsels till cooked. It is "ONO", or Hawaiaan for delicious. Enjoy!

    shrimp cocktail: buy some small shrimp at the store and also get some cocktail sauce. Get a cocktail dish, put the shrimp in and put the cocktail sauce in the middle.
