My husband bought me a new camera lens for Christmas! I am so excited to start out 2014 with better photography! It is amazing what a huge difference a lens can make in the quality of a photograph. This is the lens I got HERE.
On New Year’s Eve we decided to have “snacky” foods so I made some hummus, cheese dips and Buffalo Wings. We also had some little appetizer-type food including jumbo shrimp. I wanted to change up the usual horseradish and ketchup cocktail sauce and we love sriracha around here. Oh, and ranch! We love ranch dressing!
We put all of those favorite things together and came up with jumbo shrimp with sriracha-ranch cocktail sauce!
I buy my sriracha. I haven’t attempted to make it on my own yet but there is an amazing looking recipe for it from Michelle over at Nom Nom Paleo. I love THIS ranch dressing recipe from Hayley over at Health Starts in the Kitchen! If you buy your ranch, look for one without canola or soy oil…if that’s even possible.
I grow horseradish in my garden so I went out and dug up some of the root to use in this recipe. You can buy horseradish but make sure it’s plain and not horseradish sauce. That stuff has nasty additives in it that you don’t want.
- 1 lb jumbo shrimp
- 1 or more tsp sriracha sauce
- 1 or more tsp fresh horseradish root (grated) or prepared horseradish
- 1/2 cup ranch dressing
- Boil water and turn off burner.
- Add shrimp and let sit in hot water just until they turn pink.
- Mix sriracha, ranch and horseradish in a small bowl.
- Serve with shrimp.
- Amounts are easily changed based on taste.
Be nourished. Be happy.
