Ok!! First,let me apologize to those friends who are allergic to my shellfish fellas. I am a true Southern belle at heart, and love anything seafood minus muscles, clams, oysters and any other things I can’t pronounce. I decided to keep this a low key meal night, and utilize that grill that we have outside by the pool. My hubby is not a shrimp person so I always prepare other items on the side to appease his non shrimp appetite. I decided to enlist the help of my teenage son who is always coming down to the kitchen asking me is the food ready. (Don’t forget 4 boys live here) Hahahaha….
This was a very light, yummy, recipe that actually took no time to whip up and it has an easy clean up which is always great in my book. You can’t tell me that doesn’t look yummy folks, and by the pool too. I decided to clean everything and place into separate bowls so that the clean up would be quick, and the assembling process would also be easy. Since my oldest is always asking is the food ready, this is a prime time for me to enlist his kitchen help with dinner.
You can use any potatoes of choice I love red potatoes because they are so creamy, and they cook really nice and tend to hold together very well. You can also use any sausage of choice that your palette may like better. I am only going on the likes of my brewd of fellas.
Olive oil is what I use in my house, and prefer over anything else. I have used several brands of olive oil, and I am not biased against any other brands, but I do prefer EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil). It is a lot healthier for you, and cooks at a higher heat rate than any other.
If you can see pictured in the upper right hand corner there is some seasonings that I used for this dish, and I could have used Old Bay Seasoning for seafood, but I am not always fond of the taste, but will try to get past it at times. I am not picky just have preferences (LOL)!!
Here is my big, big boy coming in to help me while he keeps asking if its done. He is doing the assembling, and I am very proud of what he has learned thus far in the kitchen with me. I wouldn’t have it any other way, and loves his culinary enthusiasm.
Don’t forget the butter, you will not regret how AMAZING it is in end!! Pssssssssstttttt… (secret) I sometimes melt a little to dip my shrimp in, in the end..
RECIPE AS FOLLOWS:
