Fresh Shrimp

I meant to post this meal last week, but the week flew by as did the weekend! 

A friend that works with Benjamin loves to spend his weekends fishing at the seaside and does well with his catches. Benjamin asked him if he ever fished for shrimp, he said he hadn't, but if we bought the shrimp net he would gladly fish for us! I found a nice shrimp size net at the store and Benjamin got it to him before his next fishing adventure. 
The following monday we had five glorious bags of fresh shrimp! We ate shrimp almost every night for dinner last week! And I still have a bag in the freezer. 

We put together beautiful Shrimp Kabobs.
I was disappointed that I didn't take a picture of the food displayed on a plate. After Benjamin came home with all the shrimp I hurried off to the store for some essential vegetables and then after all the peeling and cleaning of the shrimp, we were quite starved and Winnie was ready for bed. Lets just say the food was eaten rather quickly ;)

Green Peppers
Red Onions
Fresh Guacamole 
Pitta Bread

Cook vegetables and shrimp anyway you like. On the grill as a kabob really brought out the flavor of the veggies. We just slipped everything off the kabobs and into the open pita-bread. Put a spoonful of Guacamole into the pita and if you want some spice, add some green chili sauce ;)

Bon appetit!

Oh wow, It looks so scrumpcious! It is making my mouth water, and I should be in bed by now, but I am considering my alternatives....what is there to eat. This late night blogging is not good for me... I always get hungry after reading everybody's food posts. Those shrimp sure are beautiful. Sigh.
I Love you sweetie.
