Chef Brent

My dad is an amazing cook!
For as long as I can remember he was the one who did most of the cooking in our house growing up.
Unfortunately, I don't get the pleasure of tasting his food very often anymore.
The last time I was visiting I took notes of a few recipes he made while I was there.
This is a simple one, but it is just so delicious I had to share.

Shrimp Salad:
6-9 medium sized shrimp per person
pepper, seasoning salt, butter flavoured oil spray
mixed greens
Parmesan cheese
croutons
other toppings such as tomato, green onions mushrooms, cucumber, onion, anything you like.
Garlic Bread is a must to soak up all the extra dressing, YUM!

Dressing:
2 parts Olive Oil to 1 part White wine vinegar ( I ended up playing around with it trying to find the right amount for 4 people and I came up with 10 Tbsp Oil to 5 Tbsp Vinegar)
1-2 cloves of Garlic freshly pressed
1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in air tight container, shake well.


Thread shrimp on skewer and sprinkle with fresh pepper, seasoning salt and oil spray.

BBQ shrimp for 3-5 minutes on each side
Lay shrimp on greens
Add desired toppings
Serve with Garlic Bread






So easy, but so delicious and SUPER healthy!!
