Honey Sriracha Grilled Shrimp Salad ~ slightly sweet, mostly spicy grilled shrimp plus a sweet corn-avocado salad with a simple 3-ingredient tangy cilantro-lime dressing that pairs perfectly with the sweet corn. Make both the shrimp and salad ~ or either ~ for a great summer dinner, appetizer or light lunch.

Do you remember your hairstyle from the 80’s? Mine involved big hair and lots of spray to achieve the look. I *may* have even carried that look and my giant can of hairspray into the 90’s.

You’re probably wondering where I’m going with all this talk of hair so here it is: not only do hairstyles need updating, but blog posts, too. I didn’t write the original Honey Sriracha Grilled Shrimp Salad recipe as long ago as the 80’s, but you’ll have to trust me when I say while the recipe remains rock solid and unchanged, the photos were in desperate need of a refresh.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Grilled Shrimp Scampi: a twist on the classic-fresh shrimp grilled basted in rich, buttery-garlic white wine sauce, topped with fresh mixed herb gremolata.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi ~ a twist on the classic-fresh shrimp grilled basted in rich, buttery-garlic white wine sauce, topped with fresh mixed herb gremolata.

A couple of weeks ago I ooohed and aaahed at the adorable baby rabbits small enough to fit in a cereal bowl romping around my yard. Sometimes they’d come right up to the patio door. That was then.

Now those little darlings have munched their way through my perennials and moved on to the vegetables like it’s their own private product market. Thankfully they don’t seem to have an interest in my herbs. Yet.

So while I still have herbs left, it’s time to make Grilled Shrimp Scampi ~ a twist on the classic ~ fresh shrimp grilled and basted in a rich, buttery-garlic white wine sauce, topped with fresh mixed herb gremolata.

This meal is quick enough to enjoy on a weeknight, but if you’re entertaining this summer, this is your meal. As light as white summer wine and loaded with flavor.

Appetizers & Beverages | August 2, 2015 | By

What’s not to love about a tasty appetizer served in a neat little cup. The only bad thing I can say about them is that they disappear so quickly! Appetizers are my favorite way to eat. Not only are these Grilled Spicy Shrimp Cups with Pineapple Aioli mouth-wateringly delicious, but there’s no messy look to them like you may see with a layered dip after the second or third dipper ~ broken chips ~ pooled liquid. Grilled Spicy Shrimp Cups with Pineapple Aioli are fast to make and with this easy to follow recipe, you’ll be munching in no time. Spicy shrimp topped with sweet-tangy pineapple aioli all nestled in scooped tortilla chips.
