Wondering what to enter into the sausage throw down, I pictured in my head a meal that would be to my taste.....Shrimp and chorizo had to be it....A great combination...
Heres the chorizo recipe.... I dabbled with richoso1's chorizo and came up with some awesome chorizo...
Here's a lnk to his recipe.... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/85218/lab-chorizo-2
Here are the changes I made... This is per 1 lb of meat
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 1tsp smoked paprika
- ½ tsp chipolte powder
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp ground oregano
- ¼ tsp peppercorns ground
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ tsp mortons TQ
- ½ tsp white vinegar
Heres the chorizo smoking up
Now I traveled to carolina beach for the week and I was using this little stove in the motel to prepare my meal and was able to get some fresh shrimp from blackburns seafood brought in daily... Here was my veiw
Ok Back to the entry.....
1,5 lbs peeled and devained shrimp
1 lbs chorizo sliced
1 yellow and red pepper diced large
1/2 container mushroom sliced
3/4 box penne rigate
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 sweet onion diced large
pecorino romano cheese
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Started by adding a little oil to lightly carmalize the onions ...removed the onions and added the mushrooms and some white wine to deglaze the mushrooms and added back the onions....
Added the peppers
Added the diced tomatoes and heated
added the penne and chorizo and heated
Finally added the shrimp and tomato sauce 3/4 can of tomato sauce... My last pic is with no sauce in yet
Covered and simmers for about 5 minutes.....
Now.......! I critisized people for not following directions when instructed to do something specific and I say I took first place for the Dumb@ss award in the throw down... I did not follow directions as specificly instructed and forgot to put the word Kutas in my pics.. I was also using a 600 dollar camera to bat..... We'll after I got home I proceeded to eat my leftovers and when I made my entry I then found out the word needed to be in the pic... Oh man.. Do i have enough to make a plate of leftover... i had packed some in a container at work the day before and didnt get a chance to eat it so what little i had in the fridge and what I had at work I was able to heat up the last of the leftovers to do a final pic...
This plate was delicious....... It was everything i pictured my taste buds craved... I hope you enjoy it if you try it
This is the pic I wanted to enter.......
I had fun... and thanks for looking
