Guest Post: Impress the Guests Shrimp Marinade
|August 12, 2012||Posted by Presley under Dinner Recipe, Recipe|
Hey y’all! Yesterday we got up early and hopped in the car with a baby and a whole bunch of STUFF. Seriously, this is the first time we’ve traveled with Maddux. It is crazy how much more we had to pack! Anyway, it’s our first morning at the beach, so I’m trying to relax a little instead of blogging it up. I do, however, have an awesome guest post lined up for you! The beautiful and brilliant Meg, from A Dash of Meg, was kind enough to hook me up with a delicious-looking recipe! It looks like something I might just need to make this on the trip.
Do you have a go-to, never-fail-me type of recipe that you make over and over again and will continue to do so because it is so delicious no matter how many times you have it?
I am sure you do, as I have many of these and you’re in luck because today I am sharing one of those delicious recipes with you! But first, let me introduce myself!
My name is Meg and I blog over at A Dash of Meg.
A Dash of Meg is my little place to share healthy recipes, sweaty workouts, and daily adventures! I am an aspiring Registered Dietitian, so I share my schooling journey with you, as well. If you want to know even more about me click this link, but first – read this post because I promise you this recipe is delicious.
One more thing you should probably know about me is that I am a seafood addict, which is why the recipe I am about to share with you is for shrimp! It is my go-to marinade to use when marinating shrimp. It always impresses the guests and leaves them ooing and aweing!
Impress the Guests Shrimp Marinade
2 TBSP lemon juice (lime juice also works well)
¼ cup soy sauce (I like to use a low-sodium soy sauce)
1 TBSP chili sauce (I like to use Sambal Oelek chili garlic paste)
2 tsp minced ginger
1 large garlic cloves, crushed
2 TBSP cilantro (fresh is best, but I have used dried before and it is great, too!)
Combine all of the ingredients together and marinade the shrimp for only half an hour. If you want to marinade the shrimp long than half an hour, do not add the lemon juice until the last 30 minutes. If you let shrimp marinade in an acid such as lemon juice for too long the shrimp will become tough.
I promise you this shrimp marinade is a winner; however, if you aren’t a seafood addict or shrimp love like myself, you can definitely use this marinade for other types of protein, as well.
Thanks for having me, Presley! <3
