Saturday Dinner

I was in the mood for shrimp and scallops…but somehow this seems to be a bit beyond the word “shrimp”

Geeze Luise those things were ginormous. So I took four of them and plopped them in a big honking ziplock along with about a pound of scallops, fresh lime juice (four limes’ worth), a splash of olive oil, some red pepper flakes and about a tablespoon of curry powder. I let them marinate for about 45 minutes (with the fresh lime juice that’s about the max; any longer and the seafood will start to ceviche-fy), flipping and squishing constantly to get all the tasties spread about then popped those babies on the grill for just a couple of minutes per side

served with some twice-baked spuds I made earlier in the day (and some green thing that is required by the Government) it made for a tasty meal.

  2. Whatever happened to “I hate shrimp. They’re a pain in the ass.”?

    From Costco, the place where I spend the weightier portion of my income.
    Sis, “normal” sized shrimp are a pain in the ass; I only had to peel two of these babies.
