Grilled Veggies, Barbecue Shrimp on a Bed of 5 Grain Rice

Grilled Veggies, Barbecue Shrimp on a Bed of 5 Grain RiceFoil wrapped & grilled vegetables using our garlic olive oil & lavender balsamic vinegar w/ black pepper. (keep them still slightly crunchy, but don’t throw away the vitamin rich juices);

Oven baked shell-off shrimp after marinading in our red cayenne chili pepper olive oil and the honey ginger balsamic vinegar w/ heavy sprinkling of old bay seasoning and one tblsp. of Sauer’s barbecue sauce for 15 min. massage it into the shrimp. Place in the oven for 17 min on 350 deg. tossing 2-3 times to even out the cooking of the shrimp. I use a glass corning ware dish so I can see each shrimp is cooked. (Sweet, spicy and a bit hot, but not too hot).

All Plated atop a bed of 5 grain rice simmered to perfection not using water, but low sodium chicken broth & half and half of our butter and wild mushroom and sage olive oil. Fork fluffing as the water is absorbed to make it creamy like risotto. Plate each and drizzle on the marinade.

Eat healthier!!!! ENJOY.
