Sockarooni Shrimp Parmigiana!

Happy New Year! 

I have a fantastic treat for all of you!  As a Featured Publisher for Foodbuzz, I was given the opportunity to try out a few Newman's Own products over the Christmas Holidays.  Look at the bounty below!




Trying to think outside of the box, I wanted prepare something different besides meatballs and spaghetti with Newman's Own Sockarooni Sauce.  Go get a napkin because you are going to seriously drool!   




Pour 1 cup of flour into a shallow dish.  Season flour with 2 tablespoons of your favorite Cajun seasoning.




In a second shallow dish, whish 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of water.



In a third shallow dish, add 1-1/4 cups of Italian Bread Crumbs.



Peel and devein 1-1/2 lbs. of large shrimp.




Heat vegetable oil to 325 degrees.



Dredge the shrimp through the seasoned flour.



Then dip the shrimp in the egg wash.




Then dredge the shrimp through the seasoned italian bread crumbs.






Place the shrimp on a plate until the oil has gotten to temperature.  While you are wating for the oil to heat, Cook 1 lb. of spaghetti to al dente.  Warm your spaghetti sauce in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.



Carefully drop the shrimp a few at a time into the oil and cook for approximately 3 to 4 minutes.  Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate. The shrimp will be cooked in batches.  (The surefire method is - when they float, they're done.) 





Place the cooked shrimp in a single layer in a shallow oven safe dish.  I wound up using 2 dishes for this.





Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of freshly grated Parmigiana Reggiano over the shrimp.






Ladle 1 to 2 tablespoons of spaghetti sauce over the shrimp.  Just enough to lightly cover the shrimp, then granish with a gnerous handful of grated mozzerella cheese.  Place the shrimp under the broiler for about 3 minutes - until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown.








Toss the cooked spaghetti with the remaining sauce in a large bowl.





Gorgeous!





Place the coated spaghetti on a plate or in a bowl and spoon a generous helping of shrimp on top.

Now honestly, tell me you didn't drool - not even once!

Fried AND in a pasta dish? Wow! The product you used is a good quality line, with proceeds going to a good cause... What is the down side to that?

highlandsranchfoodie said...

You had me at fried shrimp sprinkled with parmesan and then you had to throw in some spaghetti!!!! wow and YUM! Fantastic dish! Will be saving this recipe.

The Diva on a Diet said...

Most definitely drool-worthy ... especially that shot with the nicely browned cheese! I'll bet this was amazing and such a great, comforting meal for winter.

Marjie said...

I've never been featured anything, and never gotten free anything. Whine, whine, whine. This looks great! I love shrimp, but the cheapest is $7 per pound when it's on sale and when you multiply that by 5 pounds for one meal, that's a lot of money. So we only eat shrimp about twice a year (sob)!

steph said...

That looks great! I want pasta now!

pigpigscorner said...

WOW looks amazing! I'm so jealous with all the freebies!

Chef E said...

I like how that looks toasty on top! Yummy cheesy shrimps, and I just got home with some for our dinner...I have not tried the sockarooni sauce, so I am curious...

Chef E said...

PS I will be heading your way in June...

Cheryl said...

Hello that looks amazing, delicious and tasty! YUM, need I say more!

Chris said...

That does look drool worthy, Katherine. Sockarooni is our favorite jarred sauce ever, we used to use it regularly until about 5 years ago. I might have to pick up a jar just to have on hand, it's great on nights when you don't have much time.

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

This looks absolutely delicious Katherine! Two of my favorites together. So comforting. Happy New Year!XO
