I'm sure you've been dying to know my thoughts on shrimp. Well today is your lucky day!
I used to be very anti shrimp. I just didn't like the taste of it. It tasted like bland salt water to me so I avoided it. I'd see people sucking down shrimp cocktail and declaring how much they love shrimp and I just did not get it. I'm still not OMG SHRIMP IS THE BEST FOOD OF ALL TIME but I now like shrimp. Today I decided to make shrimp scampi. This was my first time ever cooking shrimp so really this could have been a disaster. At the very least I had a bottle of white wine that I could drink if thinks went south.
I think it turned out pretty good actually. Sure the pasta stuck together a bit but the shrimp turned out good which is the most important part. I think it would have been better with more garlic but my old lady stomach is delicate so I had to go easy on the garlic.
cooking tip for shrimp scampi: For every glug of wine in the pan put a glug of wine in your mouth.
So the Ginny cooking experimentation continues. We ate, we survived, we did not get heartburn! *knocks on wood*
