Princess Cruises’ Caribbean Tiger Shrimp Summer Recipe

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

This exciting and fresh summer shrimp recipe is brought to you by Princess Cruises. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy this delicious appetizer because of all the fresh ingredients that can be found around this time of year. For example, the tomatillo, also known as the Mexican green tomato, is great this time of year. They should be purchased when firm and then can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. The tomatillo’s lemony taste makes it great for pairing with seafood, like shrimp! Below we have included a shopping list as well as preparation instructions for Princess Cruises’ Caribbean Tiger Shrimp.

Princess ChefIngredients:

  • 24 jumbo tiger shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 quarts water
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 1 ½ cups white wine
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 10 white peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt & pepper


  • 1 cup mango
  • ¾ cup tomatillo, chopped
  • ¼ red pepper,chopped
  • ¼ cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 TBS chives, chopped
  • 3 TBS white wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • Salt & pepper


Wash the shrimp, bring the ingredients for the court-bouillon to a boil, add the shrimp and poach for approximately 6 minutes or until just cooked. Remove shrimp from bouillon and immediately chill in ice water.

Mix all of the diced and measured salsa ingredients together and adjust seasoning to your preference. Salsa tastes best after being chilled for 30 minutes after preparing. Place the tiger shrimp and salsa over lettuce and garnish with a lime slice. Enjoy!

Recipe: Celebrity Cruises’ Chilled Cucumber Yogurt Soup

By Raquel Grinnell, Cruise Consultant, The Cruise Web, Inc.

Chilled Cucumber Yogurt Soup from Celebrity CruisesSummer, and especially August, is the time of year when you find the most gorgeous, fresh vegetables and fruits in the farmer’s market. Gardens are bursting with sunny tomatoes, crisp peppers, cool cucumbers and all kinds of bright, green herbs. If you have your own backyard garden, I’m sure that like me you find all the plants producing at once and all of a sudden you are inundated with more produce than you can possibly use! Not a terrible dilemma, to be sure, but after all the hard work of planting, weeding, watering and keeping the darned bugs and bunnies out of your plants, you don’t want a thing to go to waste. I tend to make a lot of grilled vegetables as a side dish, pastas with sauteed tomatoes, onions, garlic, peppers, zucchini, etc., chop and freeze what we can’t eat, and make tons of veggie soups.

Grilled Snapper Recipe from Celebrity Cruises

By Raquel Grinnell, Cruise Consultant, The Cruise Web, Inc.

snapperI am a fishy person. Not in the sense that I’m a questionable or odd person (although some might disagree), but in that I really love fish. Not only do I have a koi pond in my yard and two large tanks of tropical fish in my home, but I married a man with the last name of Fish – no joke. I am also from Spain, a country with a great love of fine cuisine and full of seafood lovers; no surprise, since we can pluck the freshest fish and shellfish right from the surrounding waters of the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.

After perusing Celebrity’s cookbook called Excite the Senses; A Culinary Journey with Celebrity Cruises, I chose to try a colorful and healthy grilled fish recipe called “Peruvian-Style Grilled Snapper.” Peruvians have never been known to stray away from a spicy dish, and this recipe has a fresh and fiery marinade that penetrates the fish with a lovely piquant flavor. I was really excited to try a new way of preparing snapper, on the grill. Because Mr. Fish loves cooking over the flames, we were ready to take on the challenge! [Read more →]

Recipe: Celebrity Cruises’ Crab Salad Served at Blu

By Erica Kritt, Social Media Coordinator, The Cruise Web, Inc.

Crab saladI’m hopeful that spring is right around the corner because not only am I tired of the bone chilling cold, and the constant threat of snow and ice, but I’m tired of being cooped up eating hot foods. I want to sit outside and munch on lighter flavors. When we started thinking about spas on cruise ships I was instantly excited to find some healthy and light recipes to share.

This is a recipe served to Celebrity Cruises’ AquaSpa guests in the elegant Blu restaurant which offers healthy food. This dish is usually paired with a sweet pea soup, but I think the crab salad on its own is so diverse. You can eat it as an appetizer, make a sandwich with it or offer it up at a summer barbecue. It’s light and fragrant, perfect for the spring. [Read more →]

Recipe for Fruit Soup from Holland America

By Erica Kritt, Social Media Coordinator, The Cruise Web, Inc.

Fruit SoupWhen I think of summer on a cruise, I immediately think of fruit soup. On nearly every cruise I’ve taken there has been a selection of creamy, sweet fruit soups. I remember that on my first cruise they were served at the buffet and my mother and I quickly became obsessed.

If you aren’t familiar with these fruit soups served on several cruises, they’re like milkshakes you eat with a spoon. These creamy concoctions can be made with virtually any fruit. I’ve had them with cherry and peach and pineapple. For this recipe I chose to use bananas and I found a super simple recipe courtesy of Holland America, and I found that not only is this dish quick and easy, it’s something you can easily put your own twist on by trying different ingredient combinations.

Viking River Cruises’ Russian Borscht Recipe

By Erica Kritt, Social Media Coordinator, The Cruise Web, Inc.

Borscht is made with beets and cabbage.To this day, when I picture my grandmother’s house, I see her standing in the kitchen over a giant pot of soup. Whether it was split pea or chicken noodle, there seemed to always be a big vat of  liquid warmth on the stove top that would last for the whole week. My Bubby, which is the Yiddish term for grandmother, admits that she isn’t the greatest cook, but she remembers fondly the cooking of her mother, and the borscht she would make.

So to explore my family’s culinary traditions I made borscht following Viking River Cruises‘ Russian borscht recipe. Borscht is a beet soup, which can be served both hot or cold. For this recipe I used beef stock, but my Bubby, who keeps kosher, said you can also make it with water instead of stock so that it’s neither a meat or a dairy dish.

The first thing I have to say about this soup is that beets are such a beautiful vegetable. Once you cut into the spinning top shaped produce you see the striking white and purple/pink marbling. The dish itself was also very easy to make. All you do is grate or chop your vegetables, throw them into the heated pot and let it simmer. The hearty smell filled my apartment for days, which was comforting during these cold winter months.

Try this dish out if you are looking for something that is hearty but not heavy. For an added kick, scoop a dollop of sour cream into your bowl, or even a scoop of Greek yogurt would be nice.

Margarita Recipe

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Nothing says Cinco de Mayo like a margarita. Ideally we’d love to be sipping one on the pool deck of a cruise ship heading toward the Mexican Riviera, but we’ll have to get by day dreaming this Cinco de Mayo. So for those of you stuck on land here is a recipe for a classic margarita, just think of the ocean breeze and some Acapulco cliff divers as you prepare it. [Read more →]
