So this happened, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t polish the whole thing off myself.

You see, I created, cooked and photographed this recipe all on Mother’s Day this year. Mini Chef was with his dad for the weekend and being as how this was the first Mother’s Day without my mom, I figured I’d be better off just throwing myself into work. And I’m glad I did!  Not only was it fairly therapeutic, but it was also downright delicious!

This marinade will freeze for up to 6 months, thaws pretty quickly and marinates any fish you put into it in about 15 minutes (typically the time you want to marinate seafood.). You can use any type of seafood you like, I just happened to have shrimp on hand, so that’s what I used. But this will do equally well with a piece of salmon, cod, scallops, pretty much anything!

So whip up a batch or two to make dinner a breeze during a busy work week.! I promise, it’s easy!!

    I’ve been in the mood for fish or shrimp tacos and after scouring the internet this weekend I discovered a great recipe for cilantro lime homemade tortilla chips, a great avocado southwestern salad, and now this shrimp marinade. I think I’m set for my meal plan and am excited to give this recipe a try. And added bonus…I love that this marinade is clean in its ingredients! Thanks for sharing!
