Just why are you looking for Johnny Carino's Copycat Recipes? I bet I know....
Have you ever visited a restaurant and left there asking: "just how do they make those
dishes?" I bet you sat there trying to uncover just what has gone into the dish, what sort of ingredients
they're using.. Maybe you have even tried to ask the waiter or the chef for the recipe it
was so good! Chances are they didn't give you the recipe, and probably for good reason, if
they did give it out to every person who asked for it, they could soon be out of business.
Knowing how much you crave that dish, you try to cook it yourself. Maybe you had some success, chances are you were nowhere near getting the flavors just right. The solution to this problem is to use what are called copycat
restaurant recipes. They are specially researched and reverse engineered dishes like
Johnny Carino's Copycat Recipes that have been tried and tested many times, which means they can be successfully used to
recreate your favorite restaurant dishes right from home.
Another cool thing about cooking restaurant copycat recipes at home, is that you'll save a bunch of money. Think about not having to go out 3 times a week or more just to eat your favorite dishes.
Wherever your tastes lie, it is no longer difficult to find out the ingredients in most copycat recipes. With a little detective work and a quick visit to the local grocery store, you can be serving up a dinner that no one will be able to resist.

|Red Lobster Country Fried Flounder
2 pounds flounder fillets, fresh
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Skin fillets. Cut fillets into serving size portions. Combine cornmeal with seasonings.
fish in cornmeal mixture.
Place flounder in an iron skillet which has been preheated with about 1/8 inch of oil.
Brown on one side 2 - 3 minutes. Carefully turn and cook on the other side an additional 3
minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Serve with tartar sauce and coleslaw.
Red Lobster Crab Alfredo
4 tablespoons Butter or margarine
4 tablespoons Flour
2 cups Half-and-half
1/2 cup (or more to Taste) grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt and white pepper to Taste
Few grains cayenne pepper (optional)
6 (8 oz.) cooked snow crab meat, Cut into chunks
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour, and cook briefly until the mixture looks
sandy. Do NOT let it color. Wisk in the half-and-half, and stir until the mixture forms a
sauce. Stir in the cheese, and season to taste. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the
flavors, and stir in the crab meat. Cook JUST until the crab is heated through. Serve over
cooked linguini, with additional Parmesan cheese and hot red pepper flakes on the side.
Before some purist jumps me, I KNOW this isn't a classic Alfredo, but it is a very good
dish, and remarkably easy to make.
This may be varied by substituting cooked lobster meat for the crab, or by adding 36
cooked, peeled and deveined medium shrimp, and about a quarter of a cup of chopped
cooked broccoli instead of the crab meat.

1/3 cup masa harina

Blend butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until creamy.
Add the masa harina and water to the butter and beat until well combined.
Put defrosted corn into a blender or food processor and with short
pulses, coarsely chop the corn on low speed. You want to leave several
whole pieces of corn.
Stir the chopped corn into the butter and masa harina mixture.
Add cornmeal to mixture and combine.
In another medium bowl, mix together the sugar, cream, salt, and
baking powder. When the ingredients are well blended, pour the mixture
into the other bowl and stir everything together by hand.

filled 1/3 of the way up with hot water. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until

* Add a little lemon and lime to tuna to add zest and
flavor to tuna
sandwiches. Use cucumbers soaked in vinegar and pepper in
instead of tomatoes. Use mustard instead of mayo to cut the
and add a tang.
How to use Chopsticks:
Place the first chopstick so that thicker part rests at the
base of your thumb and the thinner part rests on the lower
of your middle fingertip. Bring your thumb forward so that
traps the stick firmly in place. At least two or three
of chopstick should extend beyond your fingertip. Relax.
Now position the other chopstick so that it is held against
the side of your index finger by the end of your thumb.
Tap the ends of both sticks on the plate, while holding
at a slight angle to the table. Allow them to slide just a
little so that the ends line up. Place a little pressure on
the top chopstick. It will pivot on your index finger just
above the second knuckle. Remember: the bottom chopstick is
stationary. The tip of the top chopstick will move towards
the tip of the bottom chopstick.Encourage this. Hold those
tips together firmly enough to grasp a piece of food and
lift it off the plate. Place delicately into your waiting
mouth. Although there's no need to stoop, you may wish to
lean over your plate a bit during your first attempts.
It might save you a clean-up!
