good ole’ grandma…

Tonight I had a real craving for something that reminds me of my grandmother… nothing fancy, but super delicious, fried shrimp in homemade sauce. Now this was something she would make because I love shrimp [even though she’s allergic and can’t eat]…
So as a nod to her, I decided to satisfy my craving and recreate her ‘peasanty’ classic!
After a quick breading and rest in the fridge to setup, it was into some super hot oil just to brown the shrimp. Once browned, into some homemade sauce to finish cooking off and flavor the sauce even more.
To serve up this spectacular comfort food, a sprinkle of freshly grated pecorino cheese, some toasty sliced Italian bread utilized as the spoon in this whole story to scoop up every last ounce of delightful goodness!
My grandmother taught me many things growing up, one of them… making amazing food!

at a low simmer…
