Barbecue Shrimp

This was a tasty little receipe, sent to me by Andrea, despite the fact that I half-assedly modified it. I don’t really use Caesar dressing, and I didn’t want to buy a whole bottle of it just for the recipe. So I subbed in a little bit of mayo and some white vinegar (I have Parmesan and completely forgot it). I also didn’t have any white wine on hand to deglaze the pan. But despite this nonsense it still turned out pretty well.

I served it over orzo (by which I mean, dumped into the side of the bowl that the orzo wasn’t on), so it would make more of a meal. I’ll definitely be making this again, properly. And with some veggies, for a more proper dinner. I bet it would also be good over salad, though. Yum.

By the way, the shrimp that I’ve been eating during pantry challenge? Bag of frozen bought at Trader Joe’s in late July. I hadn’t really gotten into them yet, and it seemed like as good a time as any.

As a side note, pantry challenge is done, though this month I am still going to try to make a fair amount of meals that are based primarily on what I already have around. My usual method is to go through my recipes, pick one or two, see what I have on hand and go get the rest. This adjustment will hopefully help me keep grocery costs down a little bit this month, and will also help me make sure I’m not leaving a ton of stuff sitting around every weekend when I go out of town.
