Thursday: Barbecue spiced shrimp tossed with Tomato and Basil
*Refer to Monday and Wednesday Post


24 jumbo shrimp, Peeled and deveined
(I buy the ready-to-go ones)
1 1/4 tsp cumin seeds crushed
1 tbsp smoked or plain paprika
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
Left over pasta from Wednesday
1 tomato
Fresh basil


1. In a small bowl mix together all the spices and generously season the shrimp. Either bake the shrimp in a 350 F oven on a greased baking sheet for approximately 15 minutes or grill them on skewers on the barbecue. Either way......

2. Take the leftover pasta and fry it on the skillet until its crispy and golden. About 10 minutes. Toss in the ready shrimp, diced tomato and chopped basil.

3. That's it.
