If you are wondering what to make your family for dinner, you might like to consider this simple breaded shrimp tails recipe. Although frying is quick and easy, you might prefer to bake the shrimp tails instead, in which case preheat the oven to 450 degrees F as you bread the shrimp and then spray them with a little oil and bake them on a foil-covered baking sheet for about 10 minutes, flipping them over halfway through. Cut the largest one in half. If it is opaque in the center, it is fully cooked.

You can serve this flavorful shrimp recipe with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, mayonnaise, tartar sauce or sweet ‘n sour sauce, or you can serve the shrimp with lemon wedges or lime wedges so people can squeeze the tangy citrus juice over their own shrimp if they like.

Possible side dishes include potato salad, fries, corn on the cob, coleslaw, onion rings, or a simple mixed leaf salad with some ranch dressing drizzled over it. This is definite comfort food and if you want to make your family a flavorful dinner without having to spend hours on it, this recipe is ideal.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
