I definitely like to try something new every once in a while. Last time it was beets, this week it was shrimp. Obviously shrimp isn’t a new phenomenon, but they’re not something I’m familiar with cooking with and always enjoy when I go out to eat. So I decided when browsing the fish section to give it a try. I stared a bags of frozen shrimp navigating words like deveined, before deciding on peeled, deveined, and tails off. Yes that’s right–I don’t want any part of any of that.
As an added bonus that day, I also scored a freshly made pound of cucumber salad with dill, grape tomatoes, and red onion for just 99 cents! Seriously, they were going by slapping 99 cent stickers over the 2.99 sticker. Always the skeptic, I checked the date (it was that day) and examined the container thoroughly before deciding I was just lucky.
So these two events combined to give me one delicious, easier than easy dinner…
So for me, the only action I had to take was to sautee the shrimp and cook the pasta. As the shrimp thawed, I seasoned them with garlic powder, white wine, and lemon juice, cooked them until they turned a nice pinkish color.
Once cooked, I simply tossed everything together and topped mine with feta of course 🙂
