Shrimp: Small in Size, Big on Flavor!

Shrimp: Small in Size, Big on Flavor!

Deep Dish Shrimp Pie
1 1/2 lb. shrimp
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups chopped onions
4 ribs celery, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 (16 oz.) can stewed tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon fresh chives
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh basil
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 can tomato paste
Pastry for deep-dish double-crust 10-inch pie

Preheat oven to 375. Bake bottom pie crust for five minutes. Peel shrimp. This can be done more easily after immersing in boiling water. Heat butter in skillet. Add onions and cook until clear. Add shrimp, celery, green pepper, stewed tomatoes, salt, pepper, chives, basil, Tabasco, and tomato paste.

Simmer, stirring continually for five minutes. Pour shrimp mixture into crust. Cover with remaining pastry. Make vent holes in top crust. Bake approximately 30 minutes, or until crust is browned.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
