Lucky Strike Lanes' Corn Hash with Shrimp

Lucky Strike Lanes' first Texas location has come to the Houston Pavilions. This bowling alley-cum-bar-lounge hails from Hollywood, where the original location houses vintage fixtures from Hollywood Star Lanes of The Big Lebowski fame. The concept is hip and edgy, which explains why, instead of pizza, Lucky Strike cooks up items like corn hash with shrimp. Whether the Dude would have abided by that menu choice is an unanswered question.

The recipe, after the jump.

Makes 6 servings


18 "16/20" shrimp peeled, no tail 24 ounces corn kernels 3 Roma tomatoes 1/8-inch-diced 6 thick strips applewood bacon cooked and diced 1/8" 3 Yukon Gold potatoes 1/8-inch-diced 3 six-inch French rolls 18 ounces heavy cream 6 ounces garlic butter, homemade or bought 8 sprigs finely chopped chives salt and pepper 2 ounces olive oil
