DINNER ON THE GRILL
I hope that everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend! The weather wasn't the best here on Sunday and Monday but the sun did come out in the afternoon yesterday. I decided that since the weather wasn't great and I had some time, I would make crab cakes for dinner. I drove to Whole Foods to get crabmeat and they didn't have any and it would be Wednesday before any more came in... so I came up with Plan B. Shrimp Salad sounded good to me, but the tuna was beautiful so I got some of both. I also bought a pineapple and some squash. I expected to freeze either the tuna or the shrimp, but it didn't end up that way. Once the shrimp were peeled and deveined, I realized that I wasn't going to have much shrimp salad so I decided to grill the tuna also. I threw the pineapple on the grill with the tuna and sauteed the squash inside. It really turned out to be a nice meal. I'm still craving crab cakes though! The recipe for the shrimp salad is below.
The tuna, pineapple and squash all went on one platter and it was a nice presentation!
I bought fresh Georgia shrimp for the shrimp salad and it was really delicious! The leftovers will be great for lunch today!
