This is a recipe from Southern Living. The salsa is a play on the classic Southern Jezebel sauce, traditionally served over cream cheese with crackers. Addictive combination of horseradish and apple.
I am crazy about red rice. There are dozens of red rice recipes. I happen to like this one. If you have fresh tomatoes, just use those instead of the canned variety. Skip the shrimp if you like.
I’m back again from another quick trip to the beach with a few pounds of fresh Georgia shrimp. And with ears and ears of corn in my box, how can I resist this quick salad? Sorry I don’t remember the origins of this recipe.
This recipe came from seriouseats.com.
In my CSA box was a little bundle of three medium size daikon radishes with greens. I think raw daikon radishes are an acquired taste. I love “regular” radishes, but the daikon has a bitterness to the heat that makes it not something I enjoy eating raw in a salad.
So to use my three pretty daikons today, I’ll be making these vegetables. Even if you don’t want to do the whole recipe, try the pickled vegetables part. It’s a fairly traditional take on Vietnamese pickled vegetables which are served on banh mi sandwiches and a great way to temper those daikons. You could do it with all daikon, but the carrots add color and the cucumber makes a nice change of texture. Try chicken, tofu or other shrimp instead of the salmon if you like.

Shrimp and grits is the most requested dish I get for the AJC’s “From the menu of” column. This recipe was printed in Southern Living. I just happen to have a few ears of fresh corn in my vegetable bin – but maybe you have some you froze from the bounty this summer?

Let me share the simplest, best way to fix cornmeal polenta, courtesy of Scott Simon chef at Local Republic in Lawrenceville. He uses cooked cornmeal as a substitute for grits in what is otherwise a pretty traditional shrimp and grits recipe. I’ve used this idea now a half dozen times as a bed for fresh fish (while at the beach), sautéed vegetables, you name it. Love it.
After you try this, if you like the texture of the cooked cornmeal, remember the proportion of 4 cups liquid to 1 1/4 cups cornmeal. And of course, if you want yours thicker or thinner, just adjust the amount of liquid. Now you can make this any time you need a quick carb. Really – a side dish in 3 minutes? What’s not to love?
