Experimenting with food and tequila

It was around 7 p.m. when I came home from school today. I would have gotten home earlier, except I was stuck in traffic. Toronto drivers forget how to drive when there’s a heavy snowfall.

I was getting hungry and I didn’t feel like eating chicken for another meal, so I decided to finally use the shrimp that had been stored in the freezer.
I looked up recipes and decided on Tequila Shrimp, since I already had some tequila. Why not? It’s a Wednesday.

I started with a bit of coconut oil and sprinkled some garlic powder in the pan. Using regular garlic is recommended. I tossed half a cup of baby shrimp into the pan and sprinkled in some Caribbean jerk seasoning and some Mrs. Dash. Then I poured half a shot or so of Sauza tequila on top and enjoyed hearing the seared sound. I’m not a big fan of tequila, so I juiced half a lemon. I tossed them over a plate of steamed asparagus and gazed at its beauty.

I’m always ‘that’ girl when it comes to taking pictures of my food. It’s art, so it must be displayed and admired.

Taste test

I enjoyed it, except it was a little cold. They could have been on the stove a little longer. I thought about adding lime next time. I tasted the jerk spice, which gave off a little fire kick. Overall, I would give it a seven out of 10.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that a little experimenting doesn’t really hurt anyone. You either love it or you dislike it. You can always try and find a way to improve something you dislike. You just have to go for it and experience situations for yourself.

Now the question is, what should I make for tomorrow?
