Tasty! I had left-over, cooked shrimp from the football game, so instead of skewering them, I just warmed them up in a pan with the sauce. Mighty fine! and easy! Made for your football win January 2017

Daily Inspiration

We really enjoyed this chimichurri shrimp and rice. We used some colossal-size shrimp and they made a beautiful presentation with the vibrant color of the parsley. The only change I made was to sub lime juice for the vinegar. Next time, I might use less garlic as it was a little overwhelming but still very delicious.
