Something with Shrimp

If you happen to be reading these posts in succession, you will see in an earlier post that I've been slacking on keeping the blog up to date and have subsequently forgotten a lot of the details of some of these recipes. Although it says I posted this on the 21st, it is actually the 28th. (I like to keep the dates close to the eating date so I can go back and find things better. Sorry.)

So I found pictures of this recipe on the camera. Ummmm, it looks tasty, but I'll be damned if I know what went into it! I think it was something lemon-y but I can't be sure. But I figure I took pretty pictures, so I'll post it and just make something up.

Mystery Shrimp

  • Shrimp
  • Pasta
  • Cilantro
  • Parmesan Cheese?
  • Juice of one Lemon
  • Lemon Zest from one Lemon
  • Maybe I used garlic too- we like it a lot, so maybe this was another use.
  • I very well might have used white wine, olive oil, and/ or cream too.

  1. Cook and drain pasta, returning to pot when done.
  2. If I used garlic, saute garlic in olive oil.
  3. Cook shrimp in with garlic.
  4. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, and whatever that green leaved herb is. Stir to coat.
  5. If I used some other liquid, throw that in too and maybe reduce it?
  6. Pour shrimp and mystery sauce into cooked pasta. (I know I actually did that!)
  7. Serve with grated Parmesan.

Sorry. I know that was not the world's best recipe. Consider it an opportunity to improve on the given base though, right!!!
