Preparation
  • Marinate shrimp with cilantro pesto and place on skewers for a couple hours upwards of 1 day.
  • Grill over hickory or pecan wood approx 2 minutes per side, remove, and set aside.
  • Grab a bag of bite size chips or tostada (I make a pumpkin seed tostada)
  • Then begin assembly:  Chip, Guacamole, chipotle sauce, and shrimp

Guacamole
  • Avocado 3 each
  • Roma Tomato (diced) 1 each
  • Red Onion (diced)  each
  • Lime for Juice 1 each
  • Cilantro 3 Tbls
  • Jalapeno (diced) 1 each (deseeded)
  • Sour Cream  cup
  • Toasted pumpkin seeds, 1/4 cup

Place all ingredients, except pumpkin seeds, in a bowl and mash using a whisk.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Fold in pumpkin seeds.

Grilled Shrimp
Shrimp (peeled/deveined) 24 each

Cilantro Pesto (1 cup)

Those have to go on your appetizer menu.  :)  Don't know how you do it, but you continue to amaze.  :)

Had to updates as I left off some specifics like roma tomato and pumpkin seeds.

These are on the menu but in a variation. :)

As much as I like that name I think I'll go for one of about 20 names I have in mind...Might need to have a poll on what sounds good.   

When...well it's in the planning stages right now.  I'm scouting locations with one being hopeful as it sits on a Peninsula at a lake here in Central TX.  However, cost might prohibit that locale... 

Don't worry when it gets closer to going from concept to actual I'll post my adventure and my own living the dream moment.  :)

I'm sure I'm sounding like a broken record (thpp......thpp.....thpp.....thpp.....thpp.....), but why fo' this ain't in the Recipes section ??? ?

Maybe it was and it got bounced out in the big Crash. Regardless, it's looks like dining at its finest, h00k!

I think it was but the big crash screwed up a lot of my original recipes.  Especially the ones that I modified after the fact to include more pics/detail.  So, no telling...

I think all it takes is a couple motions from the keggers for this to go back over ;)
