Honey-Lime Roasted Shrimp

Jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined and marinated for about an hour in about 1/2 cup olive oil, juice from 2 nice sized limes, 4-5 TBL honey, minced garlic (I put in two cloves), salt and pepper to taste. I roasted them on a foil-lined baking sheet in a 425F convection oven for about 6 minutes. I put some pepper flakes on my daughter’s portion when I took them out since she likes things a bit spicy.

Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches

It’s summer, and with that comes a huge amount of freshly-grown vegetables from the local farm here in Salem. Each Friday I pick up an obscene amount of gorgeous red, green, and yellow produce. I decided to make sandwiches today for my 16-yr-old daughter and her friend. First, the night before, I made the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 TBL. lemon juice

You don’t have to make it the night before, but I felt it allowed all the flavors to meld together better. This sauce really makes the sandwich. Next, I pre-cut my veggies…

  • Red and yellow peppers
  • Zucchini
  • Purple onion
  • 1 or 2 TBL olive oil
  • Any seasoning you want to add
  • Cheese if desired (I used Swiss)

I put them in a container in the fridge so I could just grab them the next day. Again unnecessary, but I like to cut down on prep-time. Heat grill to medium-high and drizzle olive oil on veggies and mix before placing on grill. I used a lime no-salt seasoning, but pick whatever flavor you like. I think Rosemary would be awesome or maybe even basil… Mmm. Brush your rolls with olive oil and lightly toast on the grill. Remove the buns, and spread your sauce you mixed earlier, then add your veggies, and top with cheese if desired. I used Boar’s Head Baby Swiss. I probably would have put it on the veggies, but thought the picture would come out better if you could still SEE the veggies after the cheese melted. Put back on grill for a minute or just until the cheese melts. You can also use your broiler if you don’t want to grill  🙂
