This is very scary folks. My Thoughtful Thursday post that I poured my heart and soul into disappeared. I am trying to get to the bottom of it, but, sadly, I didn’t have the post saved. I will now attempt to recreate the recipe portion.
This recipe, as I said so much more eloquently in the now-missing post, is adapted from a recipe at Food.com. It says spicy but you can adjust the spice to your taste. My son, Muffin-who-swallows-cups-of-salsa-at-Mexican-restaurants but who has become a spice-phobe shoveled the shrimp in.
Sometimes, we boil the marinade for a few minutes and serve it with bread for dipping. Yum, yum!
This recipe is a great recipe to serve up during the patriotic week or any time. My mom loves this recipe, and she was the one to request it. I suggested we have it for Canada Day, and there you have it. It is totally yum!
Spicy Citrus Grilled Shrimp
Adapted from Food.com
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sugar
4 oranges, zested and juiced
2 limes, zested and juiced
1/2-1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
Combine all above ingredients except shrimp in a bowl. Add shrimp to the bowl and stir to coat. Marinate 15-30 minutes (any longer and the acids will start to “cook” the shrimp). Grill 1 1/2-2 minutes per side.
This recipe is totally Muffin Approved!
