My husband and I are foodies. More accurately I suppose, I am a foodie and he is along for the ride! I love to cook, he loves to eat and when we were dating and engaged (all long distance with many hours over the phone) my mother would often say “I’ve never heard anyone talk about food as much as you two!” The past 18 months have been an extra adventure with food because we’ve been “going gazelle” a-la Dave Ramsey in order to get out of debt. As a result, we have some of our dinner dates at home. Our most recent favourite is my featured recipe today. Spicy Shrimp with Caesar Salad.
2 cloves garlic, mashed
2 ½ anchovy fillets (optional)
1 tsp dried mustard
1 ½ Tbsp Red wine vinegar
1 coddled egg yolk
1 Tbsp lemon juice (½ a lemon)
4 Tbsp Olive Oil (or less)
Mix everything but the oil in the blender. Once it’s smooth, slowly incorporate the oil until the mixture thickens to a mayonnaise consistency. Mixture will be thicker or thinner depending on your blender. Add salt if you do not use anchovies or use capers instead.
1 Tbsp Chili garlic sauce
1 large clove garlic
Juice of half a lemon
2 tsp cumin
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
Blend and marinate 1-2 lbs shrimp, raw & peeled
Put on skewers and grill 1-2 minutes per side (depending on size of shrimp). We used 26/30 shrimp per lb and about 90 seconds on each side on a very hot grill. Another option would be to toss all the shrimp and marinade into a foil pocket and grill, flipping once for a total of about 5-8 minutes.
1-2 heads Romaine lettuce, washed and sliced or torn
½ bag croutons
Fresh parmesan cheese
Spicy grilled shrimp

Fake spam on a delicious dinner post – it would be insulting if it weren’t so funny, Colleen!
