One of the most famous Baked Alaska recipes in all of South Pacific is the Yellowtail snapper. This delicious traditional dish makes use of a yellow tail snapper, which is a type of shrimp that grows in the colder waters of the South Pacific. In most cases, the recipe uses a yellowtail snapper that has already been cooked. When you cook the shrimp it will be in its shell.
You will want to make a pot of water that is very hot. Place three and one-half cups of shrimp into the pot along with a half and one-third cup of whitefish, scallops, or other shellfish meat. Cover the pot tightly and allow it to simmer for about seven to eight hours, but not longer than nine hours. Remove the shrimp from the pot when it is done and place it directly on the grill or in the colder side of the refrigerator to cool. Let it cool completely before removing it from the grill.
Once the shrimp has cooled completely, you are ready to make the delicious yellowtail snapper recipe that makes use of it. In a large frying pan or skillet, cook the shrimp using a tablespoon of any oil. Once the shrimp begins to appear dry, place a single piece of whitefish into the center of the hot oil. Allow the shrimp to fry until it flakes easily. When the shrimp flakes easily turn it over so that the other side is lightly coated with oil.
To finish the recipe, add two tablespoons of any butter to the top of each half of the shrimp. Add a full teaspoon of any salt that you wish to season the shrimp. Place all of this mixture into your oven or stovetop and allow it to cook for about two hours, or until the shrimp are soft. At that time, remove them from their baking dish and allow them to drain properly.
When you prepare this dish, it is important that you allow it to cool completely before you begin to serve it. Use a crock pot or pressure cooker to bring the recipe to a boil. If you have purchased the package product, do not add any salt at this point. Once the ingredients have finished boiling, allow it to rest for about five to ten minutes. At this point, the shrimp should be tender enough for you to carefully remove from its pot and place it onto a plate.
Yellowtail snapper is used by many people, but it is one of those dishes that will tantalize the taste buds of your family. It is made with a great seasoning mix that allows it to hold its own even when it is seasoned by other ingredients. Even though the recipe that you make is one that can be used over, it will usually taste just as good when served just once. You can vary the flavors that you use and even season it with Cayenne pepper, onions, garlic, hot peppers, or any other type of hot sauce you desire. These spices add an entirely new dimension to this already mouthwatering dish.
Because it is relatively easy to prepare, it makes it a perfect recipe to prepare in advance. If you are planning on having dinner served on the patio, you can store the meat in a bain Marie until your guests arrive. If you are looking for a hassle-free way to prepare the shrimp, you can use a rotisserie box and just cook the shrimp in it. However, if you would prefer to use fresh shrimp, you can make your own rub by combining some shrimp paste with some spices, herbs, and seasoning.
The great thing about this dish is that it can be used as a hearty entree or a side dish. In fact, I have seen it served both ways. A couple of people who have tried this recipe before me loved it, while others were a bit hesitant at first. This dish is extremely easy to prepare. All you need to do is bake the shrimp in the sauce and serve it up with some tortilla chips and everyone is sure to be pleased.
