I really hope y'all remember Forest Gump or you just think I'm a freak right about now.
I found a recipe for Green Lightning Shrimp on Pinterest the other day. It wasn't until I got ready to make it last night that I realized it was for grilled shrimp. After 10+ years of cooking I have learned to improvise so I sautéed it instead.
I bought the frozen cooked jumbo shrimp in the freezer section. I just thaw them out by running cool water over them in the colander.
I don't have measurements and you don't really need them for a marinade. Just put as much as you think you would like of each ingredient.
Mix olive oil (extra virgin if going lighter), fresh chopped cilantro, chopped jalapenos, garlic powder, salt, pepper, green onions and lime juice.
Thaw shrimp (instructions above) and pull tails off. Put in a big ziplock bag with the above marinade and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes.
I served over the Sprouts brand garlic and herb rice pilaf. Yum!
I love the Casting Crowns song, "Already There". It is such a great reminder that we don't always have to have life figured out, because He does!
God knows what is going to happen in my life and He uses experiences (some painful, some joyful) to prepare me for those times. It's so incredible how you can look back at some life experiences and realize God was using those to prepare you for something later in life. My favorite part of the song is the bridge:
One day I'll stand before You
And look back on the life I've lived
I can't wait to enjoy the view
And see how all the pieces fit
