For a special dinner, try easy, zingy shrimp dishes that go beyond the everyday sauté. You can butterfly jumbo shrimp, stuff shrimp with crabmeat and bake, or try garlic-roasted shrimp with red peppers and smoked paprika.

Shrimp with tomatoes and feta cheese is a classic combination that can be served with orzo, baked with penne, or cooked with ouzo (the ouzo makes this recipe “mysterious, savory, fantastico,” raves alkapal). For a non-traditional variation, coll loves grits with shrimp and roasted red bell pepper, finished with feta.

Shrimp is luxurious when paired with cream and spirits. Amuse Bouches serves a dish called Dublin lawyer, which is shrimp in a whiskey cream sauce, and you can also try CHOW’s Cognac Shrimp Bisque.
