George

Pididdle No More!

George survived his visit to the Bug Doctor. He did not have the issue which prompted the recall, so he just got his headlight replaced and a good bath. Very positive experience, as usual, right up to the moment when the guy suggested that if my husband had any questions he could give them a call.

Tequila-Lime Shrimp

Ingredients
1 ounce Butter
1 ounce Olive Oil
1/4 cup onion - diced
1 medium Serrano chile - seeded & fine diced
2 oz tequila
1 pound shrimp (med or large) - peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon lime zest
8 ounces heavy cream
1/4 cup lime juice - from one whole lime
1 pinch Salt - to taste
2 pinches Black pepper - fresh ground
1 tablespoon Tequila - to finish

Preparation
Melt butter in pan with oil. Saute onions and chile lightly then add shrimp. Continue to saute until shrimp turn a pink color. Flame with the tequila. Add the lime zest and heavy cream then reduce the sauce over medium heat. The sauce should boil lightly and begin to thicken a little. Add seasoning to taste and lime juice with a splash of tequila to finish.
Serve over brown rice (or shredded cauliflower if you are cutting carbs). Garnish with some parsley or cilantro.

We tried the recipe a couple weeks ago and it it grand! We served it over grits instead of rice.
