Two Delicious Grilled Summer Dishes

Grilled Marinated Spicy Shrimp

This is the most addictive recipe. We grilled a pound of shrimp the other night. My husband and I finished it off between us. So, so yummy. You just can’t stop. Maybe it’s the hot sauce. (My only substitution is a squirt of ketchup in place of the tomato paste. Who can bother fussing with a tablespoon of the stuff, or less because I halved the recipe.)

Flat Iron Steak and Spinach Salad

Even substituting the major ingredient (I couldn’t find flat iron a.k.a. top blade steak) I have to heartily recommend this dish. I got a really nice rib-eye instead and the beef combined with the amazing spinach and sautéed veggie salad is just delicious. I’d make the salad again on it’s own any time.

I really should have a picture of these dishes but I’m not usually thinking blog photos at dinner time. We’ve just passed the four (and five) o’clock fussies and I just want dinner on the table so bath and bed can happen at a decent hour. I’ll try to remember next time.

    Oh, I’m envious of the shrimp dish. I love shrimp, especially grilled, but I’m just the tiniest bit allergic. I can eat it as long as it’s thoroughly cooked, but get just a splash of raw liquid on me and I break out with itchy red spots wherever it touches.

    One suggestion for the tomato paste – if you watch, you can sometimes find it in toothpaste tubes. MUCH easier than dealing with a can.
