If you are looking for a unique pizza, Shrimp Scampi Pizza is it!!
Valentines Day is just around the corner, and of course, romantic recipes are all over the internet. Shrimp Scampi pops up a lot. So that got me to thinking…..I know dangerous right!!
Tim and I are not real big on large romantic gestures but we do enjoy a nice meal, and we LOVE PIZZA!!!!!! A combination of two yummy things, how could you go wrong. Let’s just say you can’t.
I looked for Shrimp Scampi Pizza on Pinterest, and while they all looked good, they were all missing the pasta. You can’t have Shrimp Scampi with pasta; it’s unheard of!
We added it, and I don’t wanna brag or anything, but it was a stroke of genius. Shrimp is the star of the show, but the pasta was hardly second fiddle. I think they were co-stars.
Juicy, succulent shrimp, with white wine, garlic, shallot, butter sauce, tossed with angel hair pasta, super yummy. But put all of that on a crispy pizza crust…..delicious!!!

If you are in a hurry, and who isn’t most days? Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops can have a delicious dinner on the table in no time flat!
Most days the last thing many of you want to do is worry about dinner, or worry about how you can get dinner on the table quickly. Thin cut meat is the answer to those who are short on time. They cook in virtually minutes no matter the application.
Having a crispy coating on meat or fish is a must in my book. To get that crispy exterior usually means a dipping station…..flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Who has time for all that, and the mess….ugh!
On a whim, I tried spreading mustard on some thin cut chops and then dipped them in seasoned panko breadcrumbs. They fried up perfectly. And in record time. It took all of 6 minutes. The side dishes took longer!
The beauty of this dish is it can be used on chicken or fish also. Be sure to use very thin cut meats or the panko will burn before the meat is done.
Quick Crispy Dijon Prok Chops are your new go-to dinner when you are short on time, but still, want a scrumptious meal that your whole family will love.
1 1/4 pounds thinly sliced center cut pork chops
6 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 – 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
Salt and Black pepper
Oil for frying (I used avocado oil)
Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels.
In a shallow dish or on a paper plate season pork chops with salt and pepper to your taste.
Spread each side of pork chops with a light layer of dijon mustard, just enough to coat the chop. (you may need more or less of the mustard depending on the size of your chops)
Press mustard coated chops into seasoned panko crumbs making sure you cover all the mustard with crumbs.
In a large skillet pour enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and heat over medium-high heat until hot.
Place coated chops in hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Turn chops and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Roasted Mushroom Asparagus Farro uses the ancient farro, that adds fiber, and protein, in a rice shaped grain with a chewy, nutty flavor. Paired with roasted mushrooms, asparagus, thyme and a touch of red pepper for heat this healthy bowl is one for the books.
My first recipe using farro was back in 2015. Salmon Farro Salad was really delicious and healthy. Whole grain was just coming into the spotlight, and I made several recipes using farro (I will link more at the end of the post). Continue reading “Roasted Mushroom Asparagus Farro”
