Cooking challenge Two: At goal and maintenance team

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Here is a link to my newest find: Bobby Flay's Ginger-Soy-Lime Marinated Shrimp.

This is a wonderful recipe. I followed it exactly. Some of the reviews recommended taking the shells off of the shrimp while marinating. I did both. Bobby Flay was right. The shrimp has more moisture with the shell on.

My family loved this shrimp. I did change the recipe as I took the leftover marinade and brought it to a boil. Then we used it for a dipping sauce. Yummy.

I then tried the marinade on mahimahi. It was excellent..again with a dipping sauce. I think it would make a good tofu marinade as well.

Someone mentioned that this marinade had worked well on chicken kabobs.

I do suggest that you only use fresh ginger.

I served it with a Thai basil leaf salad.

    I am also very sorry that I am allergic to shrimp but I could possibly substitute for something that I could eat. I love Asian foods. I recently took out a slew of books on Asian cooking and Aruyvedic cooking and home remedies. I have not had a lot of time to check it all out but I am still in the process of new curiosities.

Glad that you are enjoying cooking!

Wishing you a happy Sunday!

Hugs, Karen emoticon

    This sounds so good that I'm really sad to be allergic to shellfish. Darn it!
