Roasted Vegetables With Shrimp and Feta

YUM
YUM

Almost a year ago I added this recipe to my Pinterest food board and now I finally made it – Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp and Feta. I changed the recipe a bit by making it with roasted mixed vegetables instead of just roasted tomatoes. The added red pepper was a really nice flavor and texture in the mix.

I added 1 red pepper and 1 large zucchini. I also used dried basil instead of parsley because I couldn’t find any in the grocery store. Any veggies that you have around the house would be a good addition- next time I’ll try asparagus or spinach.

YUM!

Honey Sesame Shrimp & Brussels Sprouts Stir Fry

IMG_3322

The day before spring and a major snow storm hits Montreal. Typical, I know, but disappointing nonetheless. With it being a snow day from work it was one of those days where I had to cook whatever I had left in the fridge. Luckily I always keep a bag of frozen raw shrimp in the fridge for unable-to-shop occasions like this. Combined with a bag of Brussels sprouts from Costco and I have a meal- honey sesame shrimp and brussels sprout stir-fry. (My sprouts took about 10min until they were browned.) The touch of sesame oil at the end adds the perfect flavour, and for a finishing touch drizzle sriracha on top if you’re like me and love spice.
