A Last-Minute, On-the-Fly Family Meal

In Food Network Kitchens, Family Meal is usually a topic we talk about the minute we walk through the door. As you can imagine, we’re juggling numerous projects at once, so it sometimes slips off our radars. That’s exactly what happened yesterday.

Around noon, I got up from my desk and noticed nobody was making lunch — so I stepped in. I saw peeled shrimp left over from a grilling photo shoot and two quarts of marinara sauce. After a little hunting I also found mozzarella cheese. All of these ingredients together equals pure bliss, otherwise known as Shrimp Parmigiana.

To cook the dish, I added oil, chopped garlic and fresh thyme into a pan over medium heat. After two minutes, I added the shrimp and sauteed them until they were cooked through. Next, I deglazed the pan by adding a splash of white wine and the marinara sauce. I finished the dish by topping the shrimp with slices of mozzarella cheese and throwing it under the broiler until the cheese was melted. You can serve it with a loaf of crusty bread on the side and watch everyone smile.

    What is the green leaves on top? Fresh basil?

    Aside from the surprise of shrimp and mozzaella cheese in the same dish, the picture above does not make this dish look very appetizing. None of the ingredients are identifiable and it just looks like a burned mess. Perhaps it tastes wonderful, but the presentation is terrible.

    I don't think this looks good at all! Are you hiring?
