I thought I would share this recipe.
We are very fond of shrimp, so we tend to
buy a 1/2lb here and a 1/2lb there and when we get a couple of pounds, we do something with them. As yesterday was Chiefs playoff day, I suggested we
do some kind of grill thing with them. Shrimp skewers of some sort. And after some poking around on the Internet, I found this recipe for a salad.
You make a simple vinaigrette to marinate your shrimp and toss with your salad out of basil, raspberry vinegar, garlic, and few other seasonings. Use
fresh basil and you kitchen smells like all kinds of awesome.
Then you make a simple toss salad with thin sliced red onion, mango and fresh leaf spinach. Toss that with some of your vinaigrette.
Meanwhile, you need to grill your skewered shrimp. This is the hardest part because you can go from undercooked shrimp to rubbery overcooked ones
You will eventually serve your grilled shrimp on a bed of the tossed salad along with some fresh raspberries and crumbled goat cheese and you should
have made enough of the vinaigrette to add more if you like. It wasn't until the game was almost over that I realize that the red raspberries and
golden mango made our choice the ultimate Chiefs "tailgate" after all!
However, we both agreed that the flavors just went together really, really well, so I think this recipe will absolutely go into our binder to be used
again in the future.
