Grilled Shrimp Salad with Sauteed Mushrooms

1 bag of frozen shrimp (if you keep the tail on it locks in more flavor when you cook the shrimp)
Spinach
Tomato
Red onion
White Mushrooms
White Wine
Shallot
Garlic
Red pepper flakes

Shrimp sometimes seem daunting to cook but they really shouldn’t be.  It’s definitely easy to over cook since they only require a few minutes each side so keep your eye on them!
Shrimp:  Before searing the shrimp I dashed them with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.  In a hot pan (coated in olive oil or butter), drop in each shrimp.  Each side takes about 90 seconds to 2 minutes.  You know they are done as soon as they turn a pink-ish color.
Mushrooms: Chop up mushrooms into small pieces.  I cooked them with a shallot and garlic and then deglazed the pan with white wine and let the mushrooms marinate until they soaked up all the goodness.
Place both mushrooms and shrimp on top of a spinach salad and you’re done!

Soyaki Glazed Salmon

What you’ll need:
4 Salmon Fillets
1/2 an Orange
Soyaki Glaze from Trader Joe’s
Salt
Pepper


Impress your guests, friends or significant others with this easy dish and it all comes together in under 5 min (prep time)!  
To start, place the fillets in a dish (I used a Le Creuset dish: http://www.amazon.com/Le-Creuset-Heritage-Stoneware-1-Quart/dp/B0024NLEZ6).  
Generously salt and pepper each fillet.  
Pour about 1/4 cup of the Soyaki Glaze (http://www.traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/article.asp?article_id=547) over the fillets to just cover the top of the fish.  
Thinly slice half an orange and place slices over the top of each fillet.  
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes in a 375 degree oven!

Saturdays

A great Saturday morning consists of a good read and a cafe latte from Cafe Luxxe on Montana Ave.

Marble Easter Eggs!

Marble Easter Eggs!

Happy Easter! 
How To:
In larger vase, line PEEPS Marshmallows along the edge of the glass (facing out).  The flowers sit in a small cup in the center of the larger vase behind the PEEPS.  Water goes in the small cup for the flowers to live.  Viola!  PEEPS centerpiece decor!
