Shrimp Tacos

There are, of course, unlimited ways to make tacos. When I have tacos out I prefer to order shrimp tacos and these are a riff on one of my favorites. They are great with lettuce and tomato with a bit of salsa but I particularly like them with slaw.

Smokey Shrimp Mac & Cheese

My wife and I were talking about making lobster mac and cheese. A good dish, but not for every night with lobster being so cost prohibitive, and for a lot of folks it's not even an option because of availability.

This budget version with shrimp and the smoked paprika is quick and easy even for a weeknight and it keeps well for leftovers – reheat gently.

Eggplant Steaks with White Beans and Ham

This recipe was inspired by a mediocre meal that I had recently at a banquet dinner. It was brought to me as the vegetarian meal (a good foodie tip: at banquets, order the vegetarian meal – it is generally healthier, fresher and tastier than the alternative). The grilled eggplant was good but undercooked and served with some other veggies. Tasty but really pretty boring.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can roast some extra eggplant and it makes fantastic sandwiches for lunch the next day. An easy thirty minutes in the oven and you can have a tasty dinner and lunch too!

Dr. Gourmet's Food Reviews

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.We've seen a lot of new Saffron Road products this year, and it has been hit and miss with a 50/50 performance. That's par for the course with this company, and even though we feel good about them, it is interesting that often when we put two of their products in front of the tasting panel, one is good and one is not.

Today we start with their Chicken Enchiladas Poblano with Mesquite Black Beans & Garlic Rice. The name is a mouthful, but the meal is pretty good and that's without the sub-sub-title on the package (an additional 16 words). More new items from Saffron Road »
