Simple Four Ingredient Grilled Shrimp

IMG_2136

This recipe is beyond simple. With only four ingredients: lemon pepper, shrimp, fresh lime juice and olive oil, that’s really all you need besides your favorite cocktail sauce. I used “Naturally Fresh” cocktail sauce  (which I found at Whole Foods). I am teaching a cooking class for college students in two weeks, and this is perfect for them or anyone in a hurry who wants something fresh and delicious.

Great Skillet Shrimp Supper: Fire Roasted Shrimp with Feta

I had some leftover shrimp, fresh chopped onions, zucchini and squash from the farmer’s markets over the weekend and decided to make a really easy, healthy main dish. I love cooking in the skillet and then finishing it off in the oven, and that works great with this dish which is like a shrimp vegetable lasagna without the noodles. It’s high in protein, low in carbs and delicious.

This saturday I will be the guest chef at a new farmer’s market in town-the Valleydale Farmers market in Birmingham, Alabama. The director said they will be selling a lot of squash, zucchini, onions, tomatoes and red bell pepper so I thought why not come up with a simple, healthy recipe with all of these summer vegetables and cook with chicken or shrimp. I decided to flavor it Greek-Style with fresh oregano, Italian parsley, feta cheese and kalamata olives. Come see me at 10 a.m. See Valleydale Farmer’s Market.

Now that summer is here, so many friends ask me what can they easily prepare while they’re vacationing at the lake or beach, or even just relaxing at home. I can creatively come up with hundreds of recipes, but why not go back to the basics and serve Classic Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce. This recipe is a cinch, and adults and kids always love it. Its a great way to serve a healthy protein appetizer or serve with a salad for dinnertime. If you don’t have time to prepare homeade cocktail sauce, I love Fresh Market’s brand cocktail sauce.
