Kitchen Adventures: Fresh Flavors

I love cooking in the summer. Well, anytime really, but especially summer. Everything is fresh, and the grill is always ready to go. This weekend, I took advantage of both for a couple easy bites.

 

Grilled Shrimp

Quick marinade (just peel and devein the shrimp first), grill for a couple minutes until pink – it doesn’t get any easier than that. And SO GOOD. For the marinade, I used:

Couple tablespoons melted butter

Few dashes of Worchestershire sauce

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Garlic salt

Onion powder

Smoked paprika

Chili powder

Old Bay seasoning

Oregano

These could be great for a BBQ appetizer or as a meal with grilled veggies.

Cherry Tomato Pico de Gallo

Another recipe that’s not really even a recipe, it’s so easy. Just chop the ingredients and gently mix together. You’ll need cherry tomatoes, onion, minced garlic, 1 jalapeño pepper (seeds removed), juice of 1 lime, cilantro, and a dash of salt. Provecho!
