Shrimp On Skewers, Sauced- With White Rice..



I like raw shrimp I have to clean and peel myself. I know then what I'm dealing with, with no surprises! I took a pound of said product, and after prepping them, skewered them and coated with a nice Asian sauce. Broiled in about three minutes per side, and served with white rice- they got gone in a hurry! My wife is a shrimpaholic, and mouwed through her share and half of mine! A little of the sauce on the rice was enough to flavor and tie the meal together nicely...
Tonight, mini meat loaves, with sour cream herbed scalloped potatoes- from scratch! That's the next post, of course!

Shrimp and rice. Simplistic bliss. (Not that it sounds elementary what you did there of course, just a classic combination!) Sounds delightful!

blueviolet said...

There's something about a skewered food that makes it even more appealing!

Ily said...

That shrimp looks amazing! If Asian sauce is sweet and spicy, I'll love it! I'll love it anyway.

PS - You inspire me. :)

Mr. Condescending said...

I'm so glad I started using raw unpeeled shrimp. I haven't yet tried deveining them though, is that a pain?

Kate said...

I can't do shrimp. It tastes like it's still alive. It's a texture thing and it's lumped in there with mushrooms and rhubarb sauce. They squick me. But I DID try fresh shrimp on the beach in NC - barbequed on the grill and as long as I cut it into miniscule pieces, I liked it. Sigh. I kept eating green beans hoping I'd take a liking to them, and I finally did. I wish it was the same with shrimp.

Yummy! I prefer shrimp that has been split and cleaned but with shells on. I still have no surprises but less work at the same time.
Can't wait to see your mini meatloaves tomorrow :-)
PS- Loved your comment over at my blog today, LOL!

Jules- Simple things done well is my motto.. fresh food, simply cooked will always be the best meal you can get!
BlueV- High summer on the grill is even better!
Ily- Thanks! Love to cook for you someday..
DogB- What? It insures quality cleaned and cooked!
otin- Get not between my wife and shrimp!
Griller- they do get gone in a hurry!
Mr.C- No! It's easy! Just cut down the back and take out anything that looks groody..
Kate- Undercooked, mushy..Overcooked, tough.. Get them done right, and you'll love them- in the right sauce!

yum. when we lived in florida our next door neighbor was an inspector...when he would open up a thing of shrimp to inspect, they would usually just give it to him...we had such feasts!

Chef E said...

I have been craving shrimp and rice ever since I had it at this Portuguese place in Hoboken, now this just send me over the edge...Mini meatloaf, okay what time is dinner, because now I want it all!

Char said...

Love me some shrimp on the barbie!

Barbara said...

I'm crazy for shrimp! Any old way as long as they're fresh and not overcooked. Your dish looks super good- broiled perfectly.
(I left you a surprise on my blog, whether you want it or not!)

I'm a shrimpaholic too. Your meals always sound amazing.

Katherine Aucoin said...

My name is Katherine and I am a shrimpaholic too!

This looks really good and I am looking forward to your next post too!

I was thinking of making shrimp for dinner tonight and I live with 3 other shrimp scavangers to. Can you picture our dinner table when shrimp is served?

buffalodick said...

Brian- My wife would leave me for a neighbor like that!
Chef- This time of year, the stores run specials on shrimp for the Holidays..
Barb- Overcooking is how most people manage to screw up a perfect shrimp dinner!
Peach- Just simple stuff, and paying attention while cooking it!
Katherine- I really like scallops better, but all shellfsih is good in my book!

Barbara said...

BD: Thanks for catching the missing M; I would have really caught it from my old U of M buddies. Did you go there too?

Shelly Rayedeane said...

I love shrimp. I can eat shrimp all day long.

Barb- I'm a G.R.J.C grad.. worked my butt off to send my eldest there! He is now a Software Architect making good money in K.C. MO, I'm a real fan of the Wolverines! Amazin' Blue! When football is down, it doesn't mean the school is bad!
Shelly- It's good stuff! My sauces are not unknown in the area...

Akelamalu said...

I love shrimp but MWM isn't so keen - lucky for me when we have shrimp. LOL

Marjie said...

I love shrimp, too. A friend brought 5 pounds of shrimp and cocktail sauce for Thanksgiving afternoon appetizers, and they disappeared fast!

buffalodick said...

Ake- My wife ate her half, and half of mine! I understand..:)
Marjie- My wife and her sister will graze until all is gone- then try and look innocent!

JihadGene said...

Good stuff, that shrimp!

The Blonde Duck said...

I can't wait to see those loaves!

buffalodick said...

Gene- Agreed!
BlondeD- Soon- very soon!

highlandsranchfoodie said...

I love shrimp. I just bought a gob of flash frozen gulf shrimp that are burning a hole in my freezer. Can't wait for the scalloped potato post.

K said...

Gotta love shrimp. Definitely my favorite seafood after salmon.

buffalodick said...

Highlander- Potatoes coming next!
K- I love it all!

boots said...

UBERMOUTH said...

I could live on seafood.
What brand sauce did you use,Buffy?

buffalodick said...

Boots- Picking more up today!
Uber- A mix of ginger soy BB-Q sauce, honey, hot sauce, and soy sauce..

Chris said...

I don't think they have a 12 step program for your wife's shimpaholicism. Maybe there's a patch she can wear? LOL

I'm like you, I don't want any shrimp that's been preprocessed. I would rather clean them!

Kate said...

That sounds amazing!

buffalodick said...

Chris- I've known my wife for 40 years(counting High School!), and if we go anywhere that serves shrimp- that what she will order! The cooked and cleaned shrimp are flavorless compared to fixing them yourself from raw..

buffalodick said...

Kate- Welcome! Simple stuff, really..

MarmiteToasty said...
