Today’s Menu: Colossal Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Sliced Carrots

 

Colossal Shrimp 013
A little warmer out and some rain coming in overnight and tomorrow. Did some laundry for Mom and cleaned up inside and outside the house. Everything done and I went to the rehab center to see Dad for a couple of hours. He’s slowly regaining his strength but has a way to go. On the way back home stopped and had the car washed, which was much needed. For dinner tonight Colossal Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

Colossal Shrimp 001
While at Jungle Jim’s yesterday I picked up some Ocean Perch, Grouper, and a package of 2 Colossal Shrimp. And I mean Colossal Shrimp! Love the Seafood Department there at Jungle Jim’s. Fish, Shrimp, Lobsters, Crabs, they have it all. They even have tanks of live Trout, Tilapia, Striped Bass, and Lobsters that you can choose your Seafood from. So when I seen this package of the Shrimp I had to get it!

 

 

 

Colossal Shrimp 002
I wasn’t sure on how to prepare them so I looked around the net for recipes. I ended up combining 3 different recipe ideas for my Shrimp. To make them I’ll need the following; 1/4 cups dry Progresso Italian Style Breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, 1/2 teaspoon Dried Parsley, 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper, 2 tablespoons melted Blue Bonnet Light Butter (slightly cooled), 1 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice, 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder, and 2 Colossal Shrimp.

 

 

To prepare them I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. I then rinsed the Shrimp in cold water, peeled the shells, and cleaned again. Then in a shallow dish combined the breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, dried parsley, garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper; set aside. In a large bowl whisk together melted butter with 1 tablespoon oil, fresh Colossal Shrimp 006lemon juice. Add in shrimp and toss to coat with the melted butter mixture; allow to sit out at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Lighty grease a cookie sheet pan. Remove the shrimp from the butter mixture allowing any excess to drip off the shrimp, then lightly coat both sides in the breadcrumb mixture. Place the coated shrimp onto the pan but not touching each other. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through (baking times will vary for size of shrimp). These Shrimp were so sweet and meaty itwas like having Lobster! I served them with a Cerulean Seas Mango Coconut Dipping Sauce, picked this up at Jungle Jim’s also. If you come across any of this sauce, grab a bottle or two. Just incredible, this would great for any Seafood!

 

 

For one side dish I microwaved some Uncle Ben’s Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice. It comes in a single serving microwavable container. Just heat for 45 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. For dessert later a Jello sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
