4 oz. large shrimp

2 tsp. butter

1 tbsp. chopped fresh or frozen onion

1/3 cup fresh bread crumbs* (grate ¾ oz. piece of bread)

¼ tsp. dried parsley or ¾ tsp. minced fresh or frozen parsley

1/16 tsp. salt

pinch of tarragon


Peel shrimp and slit each down the back three-quarters of the way through.

Rinse off with water and place on a paper towel to drain.

Put butter and onion into Menu-ette Skillet. Cook 45 seconds at 100% power.

Add remaining ingredients to skillet. Mix well with rubber spatula.

Arrange shrimp on paper plate with tails in center.

Spread bread crumb mixture evenly over shrimp, covering them completely.

Cover plate with paper towel.

Cook 1:30 minutes at 100% power, giving plate a half turn halfway through cooking time. (Autorotating oven: Eliminate turn.)

Place shrimp in emptied skillet and serve.

*White bread is acceptable, but whole-wheat bread adds extra flavor to the stuffing.

Note: This dish is great to serve to guests. Tripling the recipe (12 shrimp) will fill a dinner plate before cooking. When cooked, the shrimp coil around the stuffing and create a perfect ring of pink shrimp on a plate. Cooking time is 3:30 minutes at 100% power.

6 medium new potatoes
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced (or 1/3 tsp garlic powder)
1/2 chicken bouillon cube
1 tsp onion soup mix
1/4 tsp rubbed sage (optional)
pinch cayenne pepper
sea salt (or coarse kosker salt)
fresh parsley, minced


Combine ingredients in a medium bowl (except potatoes and sea salt). A blender may be used.

Meanwhile, light the grill on high setting. Spray or wipe grates with oil to prevent sticking.

Scrub potatoes, remove eyes, leaving skin on. Slice potatoes 3/8 of an inch thick (coin shaped disks).

Dip sliced potatoes into oil and turn to coat well. Place on hot grill, then a few minutes later, turn diagonally to get diamond shaped grill marks. Drizzle small amounts of the oil mixture on top as they cook. Turn potatoes over and repeat on the other side.

Close cover an roast for about 10 minutes or until potatoes have prominent grill marks and are lightly browned on edges.

Slide potatoes onto a microwave safe dish and cook on high power for 2 additional minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and sea salt, to taste. Serve.

Note: If there is any remaining oil mixture, use it to sauté greens or green beans, or add balsamic vinegar and use it as a marinade for meat.
