See Food

I bought this crazy-old out-of-print cookbook put out by Bennigan's on Amazon, hoping there would be a recipe for their chicken fingers. There wasn't. So I made this recipe instead.



I eat anything that doesn't need a knife with chopsticks
Garlic Shrimp

Ingredients:
  • 1lb peeled, deveined shrimp
  • 1/4 c + 2 TBSP garlic lemon butter*
  • 1lb linguini or 4 servings rice

Optional:
  • 4 tsp bread crumbs
  • 4 TBSP grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tsp fresh minced parsley

Directions:
1) Cook pasta/rice, drain and set aside.
2) Melt 1/4 c. garlic lemon butter in a saute pan on medium-low heat.
3) Add shrimp and cook for 5-6 minutes, turning after 3 minutes.  They are done when opaque and pinkish in color. Do not overcook or they will be tough and chewy.
4) Microwave remaining butter in microwave with pasta/rice for 45 seconds. Mix then keep covered until ready to use.
5) Serve pasta/rice in a large bowl with shrimp poured on top.
6) If desired, sprinkle with optional ingredients to garnish.


*Garlic Lemon Butter
Cream 1 stick of softened butter with an electric mixer. Mix in 2 tsp. crushed garlic and 1.5 tsp lemon juice until smooth. Refrigerate until needed.

  1. Let me know if you ever find a recipe for the chicken strips from TGI Friday's. Oh my word, they're to die for. Especially with whatever honey mustard they come with.

  3. @Stacey: You should write Friday's a letter and tell them to put them in supermarkets like the mozz stix and 'tato skins.

    @Apfel: Oooo! If you do you should take a picture and send it to me! [about.to.blog @ gmail]

  5. Does the cook book by any chance have their old healthy chicken stir fry recipe? I used to love that!

  6. I looked and it does not appear to. It is 22 years old so I doubt any of the stuff we saw on their menu is in there.
