Recipe: Grilled Shrimp….


Tonights meal is worth blogging about.   It was a very, very simple meal that is sure to impress.  Yummy!  This year we have been trying many different things on the grill.  It all has been great so far.   This Grilled Shrimp is wonderful when grilled on cedar planks.   I told the guys this is a total date meal.  If some guy makes this easy meal, he will certainly impress his date! 


After marinating 3 pounds on shrimp, we put them on the grill on Cedar Planks.  


How yummy do those look??? 

Grilled Shrimp

3 lb frozen raw shrimp, thawed, peeled and deveined (3 @ 3.99 = $11.97)
3/4 C olive oil
1 -1/2 Tablespoon dried basil
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 Tablespoons of vinegar
1-1/2 Tablespoons Worchestershire Sauce

Mix oil, basil, garlic, vinegar and Worcestshire Sauce together in a large bowl.  Add Shrimp and toss.  Marinade and refrigerator for 2 hours before grilling.  Place shrimp on skewers and set hot grill.  Grill 10 minutes without turning on cedar planks.

Cran-Peach Romaine Salad

2 bags Romaine Lettuce (2 @ 1.89 = $3.78)
2 peaches, diced  (2 @ .25)
1 pkg of dried cranberries  (1.39)
Ranch Almonds Salad and Veggie Topper  (1.99 – used 1/2 = 1.00)
Balsamic Vineigrette dressing –  (.99 – used 1/2 = .50)

Toss Lettuce with peaches, dried cranberries and almonds.   We served our dressing on the side. 

The best part about this meal, in addition to it being wonderful is that everything can be bought at Aldi! 

Salad ingredients were about 7.17 and Shrimp about 13.00.  =  Total cost of Meal = 20.17 or 3.36/person.  All the shrimp was eaten, with only a couple servings of salad left. 

And hubby said the Shrimp was as yummy as Red Lobster…..but we spent so much less!!

Happy Grilling!!
