I don’t know about you guys, but after the holiday hubbub I have been feeling a little, ugh. Like a few too many treats, and too few salads. So today I am sharing this amazing salad over at Love Bakes Good Cakes, so head on over and check it out because it is mouthwatering-ly delicious and will help you perk back up and start your New Year off right! In fact, she will have a whole series of healthy meals on her site, so be sure to check back often. And as part of that series, we are giving away a Ninja Supra Kitchen System, so be sure to enter to win below!
One of the things that makes this salad so delicious is that it has shrimp on it. I am a huge shrimp fan, and this shrimp is to-die-for. It is marinated and glazed in a spicy honey lime sauce that is packed so full of flavor you will want to drink it! But for all you shrimp haters, feel free to sub in chicken, because it tastes pretty great on chicken too!
Every year for New Year’s Eve we have shrimp. All the while I was growing up the shrimp was made with honey and butter, and it was beautiful and delicious, and while I still love it that way, I wanted to try something new this year. New Year…New Recipe…right? And I am so glad I did because the flavor of this shrimp had me licking my plate clean! But it is also really easy to make if you have a blender (If you don’t, be sure to enter to win one below), and a few minutes of time.
Basically you just whip up your marinade in the blender, throw the shrimp in and pop it in the fridge for a few minutes.
Then pull it out, skewer it (optional), and pop it on an indoor grill until it turns pink. This should only take about 3 minutes depending on the size of your shrimp.
Then you move from a state of mere existence to a state of palette-al bliss! You’re Welcome.
