We used to eat shrimp all the time. Then the husband found out his cholesterol was high, and in researching good and bad foods for high cholesterol I found out that shrimp are REALLY REALLY high in cholesterol. So we stopped eating it. Oh how I miss it!! I love shrimp so much. I have some good shrimp recipes I've missed making as well--especially my Shrimp Creole. Well, a grocery store in my area had raw shrimp (my preferred way to buy them) on sale this past week for $2.99 a pound. $2.99 a pound!!! I couldn't resist at that price. I bought four pounds. I may have gone a little overboard, but I already have plans for each pound that I bought.
I'd been really wanting to try this recipe from the Pioneer Woman website, but since we weren't eating shrimp I didn't think it was in the cards for me. Not anymore!!! Jen B. made it and really liked it, and now I'm so excited we're going to have it too!
(So, I was going to take the easy way out and copy the recipe from Jen's blog, but when I looked it up I saw she took the easier way out and just did a link to the recipe on the PW website. I think I'll be a super copycat and do the same thing!)

I'm going to make some brown rice to go with it and steam some broccoli. Should be a yummy dinner!!
