Shrimp and vegetables skewers
I enjoy cooking. Most of all, I like creative cooking. It is really hard for me to follow recipes, I always have this one missing ingredient, and I never feel like going to a grocery store, so I end up altering the recipe so I can use what I have.Here is a recipe that is very open, you can add new ingredients or remove some you don't want or have.This is my first time writing a recipe, so, suggestions on how to make it easier to follow are welcome!
Allrighty then, lets get started!
Shrimp and vegetables:
One 14 oz cooked shrimp bag,tails removed
One red bell pepper,cut into about 1-2 inch pieces
One green pepper, cut the same
One squash, cut into about 1/4 inch thick round slices
4 oz carton whole mushrooms
Three cloves of garlic(for taste)
Three tablespoons of lemon juice
Large wooden skewers
*I really have hard time measuring spices, so I am going to leave it up to the cook to decide how much they like to use. We use a lot!
In a large bowl, mix all chopped vegetables and add two tablespoons of lemon juice, garlic salt minced onions and parsley. Saute' vegetables with garlic for flavor , on medium heat until they are close to done. Remove from heat. Add one tablespoon of lemon juice and garlic salt to the shrimp. Preheat oven to 325 F. Use skewers to pierce vegetables and shrimp through the center, alternating positions. Place skewers on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 8 -10 minutes. Timing is important as you don't want your vegetables and shrimp to dry.
This makes 10-12 skewers. I serve this over rice.
Like I said, feel free to alter this recipe to your preferences. You may want to use chicken instead of shrimp, or both,add zucchini or whatever else you have. This is just an idea.
