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
- 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).
