Shrimp is one of my favorite things to eat. I just love the taste. Growing up shrimp cocktail was a must have at any special meal/event. Now whenever I have shrimp I think something special is going on.
I have expanded my horizons from shrimp cocktail in the recent years. Now it is one of my go to items to cook with. This is a meal we threw together in less than 10 minutes last Friday. Fridays are always hard for us to pull a meal together after a long work week and groceries are at the minimum in the fridge. I used a thawed bag of frozen shrimp which I stock up on when they go on sale at the store.
