Miso, miso, miso!

I know, I know. Sad pun on Jan Brady's cry, "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" - and boy it shows my age, doesn't it? Regardless, I love anything to do with miso, and from your first taste on, I think you will too. Miso is a spice that is fermented rice, barley and/or soy beans. It is something like soy sauce but much deeper in flavor. It has been gaining popularity everywhere since Chef Morimoto has been gracing the networks. To start you out gently, though, here is a great recipe using miso paste. I toned it down a little with hints of ginger and brown sugar. I think you will enjoy this dish with pickled ginger and plain rice.

Mo' money mo' money mo' money

I purchased a couple of pounds of Alaskan king crab legs a while back and thoroughly enjoyed them just dipped in butter. I left two legs uneaten and refrigerated them. Two days later, I really wanted crab again, but in a different culinary theme - something quick and filling. One of my favorite dishes is Alfredo, so I thought, why not combine the two? Once it was prepared, I didn't even want to take the time to take a picture of it. I enjoyed every morsel with no bread left over, having used it to sop up Alfredo sauce (since I can't lick my bowls anymore).

The following week, spending even more money on seafood, I purchased a pound of shrimp and relived my night of briny delight. And this is what I made. If you enjoy it half as much as I did, you are in for a hearty, satisfying meal.
