Grilled Herb Shrimp

Ina Garten  – The woman who rekindled my passion for cooking.  It was a very boring rainy afternoon in the Keystone  resort.  Boring because it was almost fall but not quite the colorful fall, it was not winter yet and we were at a ski resort doing nothing because it was raining with lightening and thunderstorms.  With the kid being a tiny elementary schooler then, who religiously fell asleep at nap times, I had nothing better to do than flip the TV on and watch something, anything.  This story is from when I first moved to the US and TV as a ritualistic watching had not yet ingrained in my system.

On the screen was this warm personality who was cooking for someone coming over to her house.   And the way she went  about the business of cooking on TV, made me yearn to go back home and be with my mom.  My love for Ina and her books and shows started on that boring, rainy day in Keystone.

So now you can understand why I am so thrilled about this blog group. It’s all about Ina. The first Friday of every month,  we will  blog one course using an Ina Garten recipe.     Each food blog will feature a recipe on the same day.  So most of the time we won’t know until the last minute if more of us are making the same recipe.  I am thinking one of these days we may all be posting the same recipe ! That would quite interesting! For today’s post I made the Grilled Herb Shirmp.  It’s quick, flavorful and so easy to put together.

Featured below are the wonderful bloggers who are on this journey with me –

  10. The shrimp in the photo look yummy but it looks like the recipe is missing one big step or am I not seeing it? After ingredients all I see in instructions is this-

    Instructions

    Heat a grill or a grill pan over medium-high heat.
    Brush the rack or pan with vegetable oil to prevent the shrimp from sticking.
    Skewer 5 to 6 shrimp on a skewer
    Grill the shrimp on each side, until opaque and lightly charred, about 1 1/2 minutes.

    What happened to the onion, garlic, basil, parsley etc? Also, it says 1 tbs cup olive oil- you may want to fix that!
    Love your blog!
