Small Kitchen Stories: Steamed Shrimp Summer Meals
How to have wonderful Summer meals for two hungry beachy folks, and not heat-up the kitchen?
Steamed Spiced Shrimp, 1 Lb.
Tabbuleh Mix: I like Fantastic Foods.
Creamy Tomato Soup: Pacific Foods
A rather complicated Tabbuleh that started with the mix and then I added in: chopped cucumber, tomatoes, red onions, and sweet red and yellow peppers. A can of tuna, mashed, and generous amounts of crumbled Feta. Extra olive oil and lemon juice gave it a nice finish.
On the side serve the in-the-shell spiced shrimp.
A nice cut up peach slices decorated the plate.
Soup with Old Bay Spiced Shrimp
Peel the remaining Spiced Steamed Shrimp and chop up, coarse to fine. Throw into the soup pot with a chopped tomato, and mushrooms. Add in the package of Creamy Tomato Soup. Add in a dash of milk, dried dill-weed.
Serve with a big dollop of Greek Style Yogurt.
I knew this would be good...... but it was exceptionally "yummy"!
Serve dessert: cream cheese frosted brownies!
