I am not a big seafood eater but I love Shrimp. I find it to be so simple to cook and there are so many quick and easy recipes out there for it. I was doing a blog hop the other day and found this great recipe over at Balancing The Dream. I loved the fact that there were no measurements but just a list of ingredients because that is always the best kind of recipe in my opinion. I just sort of added as much or as little as I wanted and then I adapted the kabobs to our liking. I made the shrimp again recently and I added pineapple juice to the marinade and pineapple chunks to the skewers. Yummy! I should have taken a photo of it because honestly it was even better this way!
You will need:
Shrimp--fresh or frozen (I used frozen uncooked)
Frank's Sweet Chili Sauce
Salt and Pepper
Pineapple (fresh or chunks from a can)
To Make the Shrimp:
•Gather up your ingredients. It really is just a dump as you go recipe so whatever your heart desires
•Mix everything up in a bowl
•Whisk it all together
•Pour the marinade over your shrimp.
•Let the shrimp marinate for several hours
•Soak your wooden skewers in water so they don't burn on the grill
•Load up the shrimp and veggies on the skewers
•Place on a hot grill and let them cook for a couple minutes on each side. I like to baste mine multiple times so they stay really moist and the flavor "sticks"
What to have with the yummy shrimp?
How about Roasted Ranch Red Skin Potatoes
To Make the Potatoes:
You will need
Potatoes (red skin works really well)
A packet of Ranch Buttermilk Dressing Powder
•Clean your potatoes and cut into chunks
•Drizzle with olive oil and stir around. Then add your Ranch powder mix all over the taters
•Stir so all the potatoes get coated
•Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 30 to 45 minutes. Just watch them and stir frequently to avoid over browning. We like ours pretty brown but you may just want them slightly browned.
Yummy in the Tummy!
