Welcome, one and all, to the digital version of Nana's recipe box. Cook and enjoy. Share and photograph. Send me those photos and I will post them alongside the recipes. Feel free to comment on any adaptations you have experimented with, so we can all learn and share and cook together. But most of all, thank you to the great chef herself, who is always loved and never forgotten.

Shrimp and Leek Casserole

2 leeks, white and little green

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp each of oil and butter

½ cup chopped parsley

1 tbsp fresh rosemary

½ tsp sugar


4 plum tomatoes

1 lb. large shrimp, shelled and de-veined

Cut leeks crosswise into 2” strips, then lengthwise into thin strips. Wash and drain well. In a 6 cup microwave safe casserole dish, combine lemon juice, oil and butter. Cook, covered on high for 2 to 2½ minutes until butter has melted and mixture is hot. Stir in leeks, parsley, rosemary, sugar and pepper. Cook, covered on high for 2½ minutes, until leeks are tender. Stir in tomatoes, start to break up. Stir in shrimp. Cook, covered on high for 3 to 4 ½ minutes, stirring once, just until shrimp turn pink (do not over cook). Season well with salt to taste - serve sprinkled with parsley.
