Jalapeno Shrimp

We took a family vacation to the beach last week.  The weather was less than ideal but we got to spend lots of quality time together.  (My kids didn't have much choice it the matter since we were trapped inside on rainy days.)  Despite the weather, we managed to sneak out the beach to take some family photos.

We even had some honorary Davis' with us at the beach.

The week wasn't a complete wash, we did sneak in a couple of days of water fun.

 Of course, there we had lots of good food - and ice cream.

 I love family time.

Coming home from a great vacation is never easy.  A plateful of grilled jalapeno and lime shrimp makes leaving the ocean, just a little bit easier. 

Grilled Jalapeno and Lime Shrimp Skewers
1 jalapeno chili
3 Tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon lime zest
5 Tablespoons fresh lime juice (3 limes)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 1/2 pounds shrimp

Process all ingredients, except shrimp, in food processor.

Reserve 2 Tablespoons marinade and transfer remaining marinade to a bowl with shrimp.  Allow shrimp to marinate up to 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Thread shrimp onto skewers.

Grill 3-4 minutes on each side.

Remove from grill.

Serve with rice.

Or serve over lettuce as a salad.
