I never liked shrimp. One of my earliest memories is feeling violently ill at a seafood restaurant, and for the longest time just the smell of seafood made me sick to my stomach. Plus, shrimp looks gross. Peeling it is no fun. And for the longest time, I justified staying away from it because shellfish is a common allergen.
But that’s kind of a load of crap if you don’t have a shellfish allergy. ‘Cause seafood of all kinds is super healthy and it’d be a shame to not eat that stuff if it doesn’t actually hurt you. And much to my surprise, I wound up liking shrimp once I gave it a fair shot. This recipe is one of my favorites. It’s got a mild spicy-sweet flavor that pairs well with just about everything. Serve it on a salad, as a side to roasted or grilled veggies, or have it as an appetizer with my ranch dip!
