It was a humid day here in Nova Scotia, its 8:30pm and I’m still hot. YUCK. I refused to turn the oven on tonight, stuck to the BBQ and a few minutes on the stove top.
Dinner was a tasty recipe that I got from JillianMichaels.com a few years ago. The directions in the recipe are to grill the shrimp in a skillet. I made a few modifications so that they could be grilled as skewers on the BBQ.
Sizzled Citrus Shrimp
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp dry white wine
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lb shrimp
- 1 bay leaf, crushed
- red pepper flakes
- fresh ground pepper
I used 1 bag of frozen, pre-cooked shrimp. Thawed out.
Mix in garlic, bay leaf, red pepper flakes & pepper.
Add shrimp to mixture and toss to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Banrock Station White Shiraz. – Light rose petal in colour, the Banrock Station White Shiraz displays fresh lifted strawberry fruit with floral and jasmine aromas. The semi sweet palate abounds with strawberry flavours and reveals a lovely zesty finish.
Side of fresh beans. Love, love, love having a garden!
I got quite a few goodies in the mail box today, including my blog business cards!!! I’m so happy with how they turned out!
I took advantage of a free shipping offer that Moo.com was having and got 50 cards for approximately $24.00CA. I really liked that I was able to design the cards myself. (Uploaded the jpg files) My order was placed on July 25th and received today. Overall, fantastic service. I would recommend Moo.com to anyone looking to design & print their own business cards for a reasonable price.
FYI – the color difference is just my pics, silly lighting.;)
Back tomorrow bloggies!
