It amazes me how cheaply, yet how well we can eat at home. A dinner of a pound of shrimp would be pretty high at a restaurant. Last week I made Tandoori Grilled Shrimp Skewers for under $10. We got four FULL skewers and two meals out of it, and was it ever scrumptious!! Also, as I always say, fish is a super fast meal. Because these were grilled, my kitchen didn’t even get heated up. Is that enough positives to make you want to try them for yourself?
This marinade is a lighter version and only needs 15 minutes to coat the shrimp and make it so flavorful. Grilling the shrimp only takes 2-3 minutes in each side. Dinner is ready in under 30 minutes!
Tandoori Grilled ShrimpSkewers

Combine yogurt, salt, lemon juice, oil, curry powder, cumin, coriander, garlic and ginger in a large bowl; add shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature or covered, up to 2 hours in refrigerator.
Divide shrimp among 4 metal or wooden skewers (if using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them for 20 minutes before use).
Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill skewers until shrimp are cooked through (opaque) and slightly firm, flipping once, about 2 to 4 minutes per side. Serve garnished with cilantro.
The next time you think you should just go out for dinner, think about something this fast, this delicious, and this cost-effective instead. You get choice seating, a view of HOME and a satisfied appetite! I can’t wait to make these again!!
The roasted vegetables get crispy and sweet in the oven!
They’re so easy!
They’re sooo good!
I made this new Sheet pan meal last week and we loved it! It was ready in under 30 minutes! The Paprika Vinaigrette adds a really nice flavor to the sausage and vegetables. Wow, this is just a great recipe!! It’s great for a week night, but would also be good for company!
I tweaked the recipe to my liking and it is as follows. You could change up the vegetables, or choose to use beef or chicken sausage, if you desire. It’s super-easy to make it just the way you or your family would prefer.
I added a tossed salad and toasted bread to complete the meal.
