What? We don't ALWAYS have to talk about ostomies, do we? Let's live a little.
So as a single guy, you can guess my culinary expertise is pretty lacking. That means when I want something tasty I need to either find it premade in the freezer section of the supermarket, convince an ex or one of my friends (who can cook) to make it and invite me over, or (heaven forbid) try to make it myself. Lately I've been hankering for some shrimp skampi. I think it's because Red Lobster is running those endless shrimp meal ads on TV and the shrimp skampi looks so good. So I found a bag of said stuff in the freezer section of my local Weis Markets. Sure looked good in the picture on the front of the bag. Followed the directions to a tee, but it tasted like crap. The shrimp tasted like plastic and the skampi sauce seemed good enough to give to my dog.........and she seemed to think it was pretty good.
I decided tonight to go get the stuff I'll need and then try to make it tomorrow night. So off to Walmart I went. I got crushed garlic, lemons, butter, some snazzy spices........and a couple pounds of pre-cooked shrimp.....most of the obvious stuff I'm pretty sure is needed to make skampi. Now all I need is a good recipe. This is where, if you haven't already guessed it, you guys come in. How about sharing that fantastic skampi recipe you have with your old pal Bob (that's me). You know, the recipe your Mom handed down to you that she got from her Mom.....and can be traced all the way back to the Mayflower. Yeah, that one. C'mon, don't keep it all to yourself......I'm sure there are some other ostomates out there that want to do the same as me and make up a batch soon. So if you got any good recipes for the finest skampi on the planet...........please share.
Thanks in advance,
