Recipes from Fr. Paul's AM Buffalo appearance July 2, 2010
Fr. Paul’s Mussels with Chorizo
- 1 cup white wine
- 2 pounds fresh mussels/clams/etc, scrubbed
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions, white part only
- 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
- 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- Fresh Tarragon
- 2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- 1/2 lb. cooked crumbled Chorizo sausage
1 Heat wine in a pot large enough to hold your mussels/clams, over high heat. Add the mussels, cover, shake pot over heat occasionally for about 2-3 minutes until mussels/clams open. Discard any that do not open. Reserve mussels in warm oven and work quickly.
2 Drain liquid and reserve (except for the sandy liquid in the bottom of the pot which may be discarded.)
3 Melt butter over medium heat. Add ingredients #3 thru #7. Stir until ingredients reach required doneness. (I like them a little crunchy.)
4 Mix in ingredients #8 thru #10 and reserved broth
5 Throw mussels back in to pot. Stir together until warmed. Serve in a large communal bowl with crusty French bread on the side.
Fr. Paul’s Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp or Chicken
Salt, Pepper, Cayenne Pepper to taste
1 lime, juiced
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp (30-40 per pound) or use chicken cut up
1 Mix together seasonings, lime juice, and vegetable oil in a resalable plastic bag or container. Add the shrimp/chicken, coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
2 Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat. Remove the shrimp/chicken from the marinade. Discard the remaining marinade. Put on skewers.
3 Cook the shrimp on the preheated grill until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 2 minutes per side. Chicken about 4 minutes per side.
Honey Lime Glaze
Juice of 2 limes
2 Tbsp. honey
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
Mix all ingredients into a small bowl. Use this glaze to baste the shrimp or chicken.
