Spicy Lemon Shrimp
Pinterest. I probably need to work on my food photography skills because I guarantee you this looked much better in real life. And, it was awesomely delicious. I was working with this Spicy Lemon Shrimp Skewers recipe from the FoodNetwork. I altered it a bit because I didn't have skewers and I was missing a few key ingredients. I was shocked to discover that Whole Foods did not have fish sauce. They did have some lovely raw shrimp though so I forgave them. I forgot to buy lemongrass which I know WF has but I wasn't about to go back to the store when I discovered I had forgotten it. To replace the fish sauce, I used some soy sauce and a little anchovy paste. Someone on the web suggested soy sauce and Worcestershire but I love anchovies and decided to go with the paste instead. The shrimp were shelled and deveined by WF. I marinated them the hour and them cooked them in a hot non-stick pan. I served them with some avocado and rice. So good! So spicy! Give them a try.
