Marinated Shrimp & Veggies

I am having an existential crisis. Probably not in the real sense of the word, but it feels like one to me.
And I've found that one of the only things that keeps me relaxed for some portion of the day/night is cooking or baking. Other than that, exercise seems to be on my side nowadays, but cooking is like the perfect pill.
Tonight, however, I didn't have much time to make something very elaborate since I had a lot of things on my hands. I decided to whip up an adapted version of a How Sweet It Is shrimp recipes (which you will also find in one of my earlier posts. Last time I stuck to the recipe more closely (actually adding noodles and all), but tonight I was feeling for more veggies and leftover baguette.
The marinade for the shrimp is amazingly easy and delicious, so if you ever want a quick yummy dinner, you know what to do.

Shrimp Marinade (adapted from How Sweet It Is)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • S & P
  1. Mix all ingredients in a Ziploc bag and add shrimp. Let marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 30 mins. (the longer you leave it, the better it will taste, but either way the marinate all ends up in the pan).
