Dinner tonight! Grilled shrimp with charmoula
For dinner tonight, how about getting outdoors and throwing something on the grill? Whip up a quick batch of charmoula (a North African spice blend combining bright fresh flavors including lemon, garlic, ginger, cilantro, paprika and a little olive oil), then marinate some jumbo shrimp to infuse the flavor (the recipe calls for a couple hours marinating time, but the flavor infuses in as little as 30 minutes). Skewer the shrimp and grill them a couple minutes on each side, and you're good to go. Serve the rest of the charmoula tableside if you want to add a little extra flavor! You can find the recipe here.
