Shrimp Fritters

3 tablespoons butter
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 green onions, finely chopped (include tops)
1 bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 small hot or mild chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 cups mashed potatoes
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup fine dry bread crumbs
vegetable oil, for deep frying

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat; add the shrimp and
cook until pink (2 to 3 minutes depending on size). Remove
shrimp from skillet with a slotted spoon, cool slightly,
then chop. Set aside. Add the green onions, bell pepper and
chile pepper to the butter remaining in the skillet. Saute
over medium heat until vegetables are just softened, about
3 minutes. Add mixture to the mashed potatoes and mix well.
Stir in the chopped shrimp and beaten eggs. Season to taste
with salt and pepper. Stir in some of the bread crumbs, if
needed to make the dough stiff enough to form into balls.
Shape mixture into 2-inch balls. Put the bread crumbs in
a shallow bowl. Roll the shrimp/potato balls in the crumbs.
Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy pot to about 360 degrees.
Fry the balls 3 or 4 at a time for about 4 minutes, or until
browned and crispy on the outside. Remove balls to paper
towels; drain and serve immediately. Makes about 2 dozen
small fritters.
Shrimp Creole

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 pinch thyme leaves, crumbled
2 bay leaves
6 to 8 green onions, chopped
1 can (14.5 ounces) tomatoes, undrained
1 cup chopped celery
3 ounces tomato paste (about 6 tablespoons)
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
3 pounds medium shrimp, peeled
2 cloves garlic, chopped
hot, cooked rice
Heat oil in a heavy skillet; sauté onions, celery, bell pepper,
garlic, thyme, cayenne pepper and bay leaves for a few minutes,
or until vegetables are just tender. Add tomatoes and tomato
paste; simmer 15 minutes. Add peeled raw shrimp; simmer 10
minutes. Serve over hot rice. Serves 6 to 8.
Shrimp Newburg

1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 dash nutmeg
2 cups half-and-half
3 tablespoons dry sherry
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 cups peeled and cooked shrimp (about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
in shell)
In a medium saucepan, melt butter; blend in flour and seasonings.
Cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Gradually add half-and-half
and sherry; cook until thickened and smooth, stirring constantly.
Stir about 1/3 of the hot sauce into the egg yolks, then pour
the egg yolk-sauce mixture into the remaining sauce in the
saucepan. Add shrimp and heat through, stirring constantly.
Serve in pastry shells or over rice. Serves 4.
Shrimp and Rice Salad

1 1/2 cup cooked rice, cooled
1/2 to 1 pound shrimp, peeled, cooked, deveined, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup diced celery
3 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
1 cup fresh or frozen green peas, cooked until just tender
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 to 3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
lettuce leaves and tomato slices
Combine shrimp, celery, onions, peas and red bell pepper.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and celery seed. Combine shrimp
mixture with rice; add mayonnaise and dill pickle juice and
gently mix. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve on lettuce
leaves and tomato slices. Serve as a luncheon dish or side

Kitchen and Household Tips for this week:
Cleaning Tips

Natural All-Purpose Homemade Cleaner
For an all-purpose non-polluting kitchen cleaning product, add two table
spoons baking soda to one quart of warm water. This mixture should clean

almost any surface safely and without any fumes. If some areas are more
difficult, simply use plain baking soda in place of a scouring powder,
works just as well, does not contain any chemicals, removes any odors
and is far more economical. This mixture can also be used when washing
the dishes, causing your plates to shine!

If you have kitchen or household tips that you would like to share with
fellow readers, please jot them down and email them to:

Week of May 26, 2008 Reprinted from Military.com
More than 300,000 of our military service personnel and veterans are
from Iraq and Afghanistan with serious wounds and permanent
Yet the federal government is not providing sufficient, timely, and
funding to treat their visible and invisible wounds of war. Our veterans
up for us. Now it's time we stand up for them. Visit
to sign a petition urging Congress and the President to take action so
men and women who fought to defend our nation don't have to fight to get

the medical care they need and deserve.
Stand Up For Veterans is an initiative of the Disabled American
an organization of 1.3 million disabled veterans who are focused on
better lives for disabled veterans and their families. The initiative
seeks to
find public policy solutions for all veterans, particularly those
from Iraq and Afghanistan, who have incurred devastating injuries and
disabilities, including traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress
and other psychological and physical wounds of war.
