This meal was something I made on a random Wednesday night. I really didn’t intend on photographing or writing about it because it seemed a little odd and maybe a bit disjointed in my head. I had no idea how it would turn out but I was on a happy cooking mission.
I combined lots of things that don’t seem to make sense like, grilled scallions (fell in love with them in Mexico and they changed my life), my favorite marinade for shrimp (Italian dressing and honey), cheese (everyone says you are not supposed to combine cheese and fish), arugula pesto (contains curry paste, coconut milk, and honey roasted peanuts). Weird, right?
WELL, it tasted awesome and looked super pretty, so I decided I needed to share this wacky creation with the world. It might seem like a lot of ingredients and steps but I had the whole thing done in about 40 minutes and that includes clean up. You’ll end up with some extra pesto but I think it would be pretty fantastic on a number of other things like toast, chips, crackers, and pasta. It won’t go to waste.
I enjoy my share of cooking gadgets. This is the perfect time to drag out those grilling devices like a basket for the shrimp and peppers, tongs for the scallions, and a grill safe pan for the pizza.
