20 Each 16/20 Shrimp (peeled and deveined)
1 oz vol Canola Oil
1 TBL + 5 tsp Green Onions, chopped
2 oz volume Dry White Wine
1 tsp Fresh Chopped Garlic
4 TBL Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Tabasco Sauce
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper

Wash shrimp under water and then peel the shells and discard. Deveined the shrimp with a paring knife and then wash under water. Repeat until all shrimp are done, place on a sheet tray and place in the refrigerator. Place a large cast iron skillet on a burner and heat over high heat. Add oil and cook shrimp until they are just done, you may have to do these in batches if you do not have large skillet. Remove shrimp and set aside. Add green onions and cook for 1 minute. Add white wine and reduce the volume by half. (Any good dry white wine will work) When the wine is reduced by half; measure and add the chopped garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, Cayenne Pepper and Paprika. Shake the pan well. Cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low. Cut butter into small chunks with the knife and slowly add into pan, shaking fast to melt butter. Continue to add butter until it all added and shake until butter is melted. Add shrimp back to pan and toss well to coat shrimp with butter and to heat the shrimp.
Place 5 shrimp on small serving plates with a deep edge and ladle barbecued butter over the top over the shrimp. Repeat with the other shrimp and sprinkle each plate with 1 tsp of chopped green onions, serve right away.
NOTE: For chopped garlic peel fresh garlic cloves and rough chop with a chef knife. For green onions, wash green onions under water shake off and cut with a chef knife into 1/16” cuts, using the green part only.

2 tsp granulated sugar
8 lime wedges
2 1/2 oz of cachaca
Muddle the sugar into lime wedges in an old-fashioned glass. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Pour the cachaca into the glass. Stir well. Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail made with Cachaca. Like rum, it is made from sugarcane, however, Cachaca is made from sugarcane juice whereas rum is made from molasses, a byproduct of the sugar refining process.

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 pound sliced button mushrooms
Salt and pepper
8 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 bunch kale (about 3/4 pound), stemmed and roughly chopped
1 (18-ounce) roll precooked polenta, cut into 8 rounds
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Stir in kale and 1/4 cup water, cover, reduce heat to medium low and cook until kale begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Toss well, season with salt and pepper, cover and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes more. Cover and set aside.
Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Arrange polenta in skillet in a single layer (working in batches, if needed) and cook, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides, 5 to 6 minutes total. Transfer polenta to a paper towel-lined plate as done.
Arrange polenta on plates, spoon kale and mushroom mixture over the top, garnish with cheese and serve.
