1-pint grape or cherry tomatoes halved                                           

3 heads of romaine, chopped  

2-3 corn on the cob, cooked and kernels eliminated

½ modest pink onion sliced                                                                                     

1 substantial ripe avocado diced 

4 eggs cooked sliced (appear to boil, switch off heat, sit 6 minutes)                                                               

½ cup crushed tortilla chips (genuine high quality)

6 slices cooked bacon crumbled

½ cup crumbled blue cheese                                                        

Toss salad components alongside one another in a large bowl with dressing.  Serves 4-6.

½ tsp. dried dill

¾ Tbls. garlic powder

¾ Tbls. onion powder

¼ tsp. salt

1-pound large shrimp peeled and deveined (you can either depart tails on or take out them)

1/2 cup olive oil

2 Tbls. lemon juice

1 tsp. oregano

½ tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. onion powder

¼ tsp. paprika

1 Tbls. Italian flat leaf parsley minced

In a significant measuring cup whisk previously mentioned ingredients. In a large bowl include shrimp and about ¾ of the marinade, reserve remaining marinade for after grilling. Toss to coat evenly with the marinade.

Marinate for at the very least 15 minutes. You really don’t want to marinate for for a longer period than that, as the acid in the lemon juice will begin to prepare dinner the shrimp.

Warmth a grill or grill pan more than medium higher heat.

Put the shrimp on the grill. Cook for 2-3 minutes on just about every facet or until shrimp are pink and opaque. You can slightly undercook if you want to complete cooking them in the oven to serve later, about 5 minutes at 400 degrees.  I like to serve this chilly or room temperature. Once cooked toss with reserved marinade and skewer shrimp to serve chilly or area temperature or warmth in the oven for afterwards. Serve with Sriracha Sauce. Serves 4.
