    Citrus Shrimp with Snow Peas over Spaghetti Squash

    Tuesday, March 6, 2012Citrus Shrimp with Snow Peas over Spaghetti SquashI bought my first spaghetti squash the other day. I'll admit I had no idea how to cook it. Google to the rescue! So simple, I just pierced it five or six times with a sharp knife and popped it in the microwave. This recipe, typical of the way I cook and quilt, is an accumulation of various ideas floating around in my head. I think it turned out quite nicely, and it was super quick and easy. Give it a try. PeggyYou will need the following ingredients:1 1/2 lbs of cooked shrimp thawed, tails removed1 pkg snow peas1 spaghetti squash3 Tblsp fresh lemon juice3 Tblsp white wine2 tsp olive oil1/2 tsp fresh minced garlic1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes1/4 tsp paprika1/4 tsp sea salt1 bay leaf2 Tblsp fresh parsleyThaw the shrimp, remove the tails, and squeeze out the excess water. Squeeze the lemons to make 3 Tblsp of juice. I love my green vintage depression glass juicer that I got from my Grandma. It makes me smile.
    Combine the lemon juice, wine, and all spices in a bowl. Add the shrimp and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
    Pierce the squash 4 or 5 times with a sharp knife, then cook on high in the microwave for 10-12 minutes.
    Remove the shrimp, then heat the marinade in a fry pan. Add the peas and saute for about 4 minutes.
    Add the shrimp and cook just until heated through then remove the bay leaf.Cut the squash through the equator, not lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and discard. Use a fork to scrape out the squash and separate the strands.Place the squash on a plate. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Add the shrimp and peas.

    This sounds really good. I love spaghetti squash and this offers a new way to fix it. I usually just cook it and add butter, salt, & pepper (my favorite way to eat it), but I've also used it with a tomato sauce like spaghetti.

    Once I even used spaghetti squash to make a mock coconut pie. It was soooo good and you could not tell there was no real coconut in the pie.

    Wow coconut pie, that sounds interesting. Did you use coconut oil to flavor it with? I think you should post the recipe for us.
