About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on Etsy.com, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)

Speedy Meal Idea: Tequila Shrimp

I love shrimp like it's nobody's business, so I am always on the lookout for new recipes that call for it. This fresh and zippy recipe for Tequila Shrimp earned extra points with me for being easy and super quick to throw together. Hey, even those of us who don't mind slaving a bit over the stove enjoy a speedy dish every now and then ;)
The below recipe should yield two servings. If you're a hearty eater (like hubby and myself), you might want to consider doubling it.
Rumor has it that this dish is worth 4 Weight Watchers points, not including the tortillas or rice that can be served with it. I give it a "thumbs up" for being healthy and delicious!
Tequila Shrimp
Ingredients:
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
14-16 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped sundried tomato
1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro
"Drizzle" tequila
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (or to taste)
4 small flour tortillas (optional) or 2 cups hot cooked rice (optional)
Directions:
1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter and the shrimp.
2. Saute the shrimp until pink.
3. Add the onions, tomatoes and cilantro.
4. Let it sit for about 2 minutes then enhance the flavor by adding the tequila, chili powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
5. Let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes so it may absorb the flavors.
6. Serve over hot rice or with flour tortillas.
