Before surgery, I could probably count on one hand the number of times that I had shrimp in a year. And now? I crave the stuff! I'm constantly looking at new recipes, and truly feel like I could eat shrimp every single day. We're told that our tastes "may" change after surgery and I'm still not sure why, but I think there is some truth in that. My mother-in-law, knowing my love for all things shrimp, sent me a link to Banging Grilled Shrimp Skewers. Our grill doesn't work right now, so I was a bit bummed. BUT, as luck has it, this same website had a recipe for Banging Good Shrimp that's sauteed. Another super-simple recipe with my favorite ingredient? Yes, please! So this evening, CME and I fixed this yummy dish with some Thai stir fry veggies. Oh...ours was a bit spicier than what it probably should have been because CME added 3x the Srirachi sauce. (We like spicy...and even if this was by mistake, it was still really good!)
I'm okay with my new addiction. High protein, low cal and the family loves it too. Win/win!
