A colorful and superbly tasty antipasto salad.

Pan Seared Chicken with Italian Herbs
Linguine Pasta with Lemon Parmesan Cream Sauce
Shrimp Scampi


Tonight I added a cup of grated Parmesan cheese to the sauce.

Boneless skinless breast wet brined for 12+ hours, then fried hot-n-fast in some EVOO.

A fairly traditional Shrimp Scampi
1-1/2lb of 26/30 count shrimp
Melt half a stick of butter, toss in a heaping tablespoon of finely minced onion and the same of minced garlic.
Add shrimp and saute till they just start to turn pink.
Then add in 1/2c of white wine, scatter some freshly chopped Parsley and a little salt.
Cook another 30 seconds and plate.

Dole Plantation Whip
This was my substitute for Italian Ice.
It didn't last long enough to get any pics, and I had to fend off the family long enough to get my own bowl.

1-1/2c Vanilla ice cream
1 20oz can of Dole Pineapple chunks in 100% juice
Strain juice and save, freeze the chunks, use both in blender
1T lime juice
1/4t salt
Combine everything in blender and blend till smooth.
Serve immediately or return to freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden up.
Makes two nicely sized servings.

My Plates... Yes, plates, too much goodness to be held on one plate.

Damn chili killed it! I’m gonna have to make that dole plantation whip. When I was stationed on Oahu we visited the dole plant and that was one of the best things in the island. Thanks for posting

I'll need an address and I'll bring Ice (because that whats the non-cooks are told to bring) because there is nothing I can add to that beautiful meal.

Thanks man, yeah the Dole is mighty good stuff.
And this is the Hawaiian recipe, not the Disney version.
This served as a nice substitute for Italian Ice.
OUTSTANDING !!
Muchos Gracias!

Absolutely phenomenal John!! A truly spectacular effort. Kinda reminds me of going to Cracker Barrel where they bring your meal on 6 plates but no doubt the food at Casa Chile is vastly better!!

Five star as usual Chile! Sauce is money for sure and man I’d murder that antipasto too. I’m sure the family was more than pleased.

Sauce sounded so good we made it tonight to top some grilled cobia fillets. The cobia was marinated in a lemon base marinade and your sauce really set it off. My wife liked it so much she wondered if we could keep the extra in the frig for some chicken we have planned for Tuesday.
