Shrimp Dip

This is a no-brainer!

8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1 pint sour cream
2 packages of powdered Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
1 pound salad shrimp (bay shrimp)

Mix together the night before to let it get "friendly". Good served in a hollowed out breadbowl with cut up sourdough.

Bacon-wrapped "Drunken" Shrimp

Another easy one! Brad cleaned 5 lbs. of shrimp (20-25 per pound), and then donated 2 c. Jack Daniels to pour over shrimp in ziplock bags. Let them get "happy" overnight. Wrap each shrimp with half a slice of bacon and skewer. (soak wooden skewers first) Sandi and I did this Saturday morning. Broil for 5-7 minutes.

Scallops

This can't get easier. Saute scallops in olive oil (I use lime infused oil from Pasolivo...time to stock up at the Slowbowl!), salt and pepper, and LOTS of lime zest for 3 min. per side. (Use a T. of oil, and zest of 2 limes per pound of scallops.)

Sauce: Combine 1/2 c, mayo with 1/2 c. chili sauce.
