{Shrimp Linguine}

I’m not a huge fan of shrimp, I don’t love the texture. But this has such amazing flavor that I actually really like it, you can also make it with chicken and it would be wonderful  🙂

1 package linguine

6 Tbs butter
5 Tbs olive oil
3 Tbs minced garlic
2 pounds of shrimp (1 bag)
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 cups fresh parsley
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
Drizzle oil in a pot of boiling water, add 1 tbs of salt. Add linguine.
In a large pan add butter over medium heat, add garlic and saute 1 minute. Add shrimp, 1 tsp salt and some pepper. Then add all other ingredients along with the noodles.

{Grilled Salmon}

We don’t cook fish a lot, but now that I have tried this recipe I think we will more often. It has a lot of flavor and I like salmon for its more mild fish taste. We did use an outdoor grill, but you could really cook it any way you want and I think it would still be great.

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 pounds salmon fillets

In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, oil, mustard powder, ginger and ground black pepper.
Place the salmon in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over the salmon. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium high heat and lightly oil grate.
Grill the fish for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
