This. Is. So. Good. Doesn’t it look SO GOOD?!

HEY! Hi! How do you do? Happy FriYAY! Which, in reality, it actually means that on this day we’re entitled to pizza, movies and a beer. I don’t do beer, but what the heck – the weekend is ah-comin’! 

Also, I’m here with some Friday goods because I want us to have a weekend that is equal parts productive, chill, and delicious.

Shrimp, Chorizo and Corn Salad - Start your summer right with this amazing salad chock full of shrimp, tomatoes, corn and chorizo sausage.

Meet my new summer OB.session; Shrimp, Chorizo and Corn Skillet. Sauteed, flavored, textured and possibly the easiest variation on the classic shrimp boil.

Stepping in the kitchen to make any classic takes confidence and guts, usually inspired by a tremendous craving, nostalgia, and a grumbling stomach. However, knowing that you don’t want to mess up said classic – AKA Shrimp Boil – you go in the easier way and toss it all in a skillet! Oh yes I did. It’s here and it’s delicious.

I’m alllll over this thing. It’s rare for me to make the same meal more than once because, I am constantly making new things, especially for the blog, but this guy had me on my knees, asking for more.

Say what! You don’t like seafood?! Well. This might totally change your mind. A bit time consuming and labor intensive… just kidding!

Just looking at this picture brings back the total mouth party that this meal is. Prepping the ingredients takes less than 10 minutes, and dinner is on the table in about 20 minutes. Win Win.

What is NOT a win-win is that this only fed my husband and I. It should have been enough for 4, buuuuuut, it was too good. In fact, it’s been our porch-meal thrice this month.

Stop, though. May I recommend having a Pale Lager close at hand?  Eventually, you will find a balance that allows you to enjoy this truly awesome meal with a completely flavorful beer to wash it down, all while sitting on your porch and loving this summer summer summertime 

ENJOY!
