Recipes from Martha Ruth Leonard
Shrimp and Crab au Gratin
1 stick butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
the butter in a heavy saucepan over very low heat. When butter is
melted, stir in the flour, cook about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Slowly add the milk, whisking until sauce is smooth, about 2 minutes.
Add the wine, lemon juice, salt, black pepper and cayenne and whisk
again. Stir until thickened and is completely smooth and thick, about
the consistency of mayonnaise. Remove from heat. Bring 2 cups water and
1/2 tsp. salt to boil in medium saucepan; add the shrimp. Cook for 1
minute, drain immediately. Roughly chop shrimp; put in large mixing
bowl. Add the crabmeat and toss gently to mix. Pour the sauce over the
seafood and gently combine. Spray an 11x7 casserole dish, pour the
mixture in, top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees or until bubbly.
Good Seasons Salsa
4 small tomatoes, chopped
3.8-oz. can sliced black olives, drained
a medium glass bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, chilies, green
onions and dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Just
before serving, stir in the cheese. Serve with corn chip scoops.
(When you stir in the cheese, it soaks up the dressing and makes a delicious “sauce.”)
