Stuffed Shrimp Embrochette w/ Chopped Garlic and Ginger

Thought of this while at the gym. Just got to say OMG IT WAS DELICIOUS!!
Pretty self explanatory if you look at the pics. I used an Applewood Bacon.
Chopped Garlic
Chopped Ginger
Applewood Bacon
You can use any kind of bacon of your choice. For me the Applewood, shrimp along w/ the stuffing gave it a good flavor.
You can grill it but I baked it because it's 106 degrees right now in Las Vegas.
Bake it till the bacon turns a nice crispy brown color.
Serve immediately.
And there you have it. Enjoy.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi w/ Bella Mushroom Risoto

Yesterday I was watching one of Gordon Ramsey's shows called Master Chef. On this episode Gordon and His cronies gave the half the chefs Live Dungeon Crab and half the chefs canned crab meat. Those that made a dish w/ the canned crab kicked butt. The moral of the story is you can take anything live, fresh, canned or frozen and knock it out of the ball park. Just add sauces, seasoning, fruits and veggies. Depends on your creative juices.
So what I did is I took frozen Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi from Costco and Mushroom Risotto from Trader Joe's and dazzled it up w/ some fresh canned apricot marmalade from My friend Martha Pedrosa Jackson that she gave me and I bought some Bella Mushrooms, sliced it sautéed it in 1 tbsp of unsalted butter and threw it into the Risotto.
I heated about 2 1/2 cups of the Apricot marmalade in a small saucepan into a reduction. Stirred in 1/4 cup of Grand Marnier. Put it in a blender and just pulsed it. Cook your Mahi Mahi and your Risotto as per instructed on the bag.

OMG!!! It was awesome! The Apricot and Macadamia nuts fused together very nicely. And of course the Bella Mushrooms rocked the Risotto perfectly. It took exactly 25 min to prep and cook.
So if you don't know how to cook or you're a master chef all it takes is a creative mind and some sauces and seasonings and SLAM DUNK you got a meal.
