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, 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" :)


Here's the Dish ~ Quick and Easy Sesame Shrimp

It's supposed to reach a gorgeous 75 degrees here today . . . I feel a BBQ coming on :) Ya'll know how much I love shrimp, so here's a very easy way to make them that I think you'll love. It's one of my favorites.
Sesame Shrimp
24 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 T. reduced sodium soy sauce
2 T. red wine vinegar
1/4 c. sesame seeds
1 tsp. olive oil
Easy directions: Combine soy sauce, red wine vinegar, sesame seeds and olive oil. I like to marinade the shrimp in this mixture for a few hours, or as long as possible. Thread marinaded shrimp onto skewers and grill until they turn pink and shrivel up. It doesn't take long!
Sometimes I add a little honey to the above ~ it's delicious! Enjoy shrimp plain or with various dipping sauces, such as chutney or hot mustard. Add a side of Asian cole slaw and you're good to go!

The shrimp looks SO good! The mixture of flavors sounds wonderful - will have to try it next time I have access to a grill!
