Paella Mixta

Paella has become the national dish of Spain and a symbol of Spanish cuisine in the eyes of many people outside of Spain. However, though you can find paella throughout Spain, it is truly a regional specialty of Valencia. Traditionally, the seasonings in paella are simple – saffron, garlic, salt and pepper – allowing the natural flavors of the meats and seafood to shine. But the beauty of this dish is that you can load it with the ingredients of your choice. My personal favorite is paella mixta, made with all sorts of seafood, sausage and chicken.

Camarones con Tocino (Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp)

This was one of my husband’s favorite meals when he was a kid. He remembers always ordering it at Mexican restaurants. It’s a new meal for me. But, what’s not to love?! Bacon makes everything better. And it’s a fun presentation for kids.

Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic Shrimp)

Spain is known for tapas, originally just an olive or two on a plate to literally “top” a drink. Over time, the olive or piece of cheese has been replaced by more elaborate “little bites” of truly gourmet food. But even the gourmet bites highlight the natural, simple flavors of the fresh ingredients. Each region of Spain has their own specialties, but some tapas, like Gambas al Ajillo, can be found throughout the country.

Let the whole family help shell the crab. Your mouth will water as you watch the crab being transformed into a cheesy open-faced sandwich. Make them your main course or cut them into small square for appetizers.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

The inspiration for this recipe came from my brother-in-law. He used to own a successful Italian restaurant and made my family a to-die-for shrimp Alfredo a few years back. Of course, it was the real deal, full of heavy cream and butter. We wanted to duplicate this hearty comfort food but make it lighter. Our version still has the creamy, rich flavors and textures but we don’t feel so guilty after each bite!
