This week Shrimp was on sale at our local supermarket, as it is almost every special occasion, this weekend being Father's Day.

So I thought I'd share a recipe that you can make for Father's Day or save in your freezer for a busy day...a day like I had today, I'm painting our laundry room after purchasing a new washer and dryer, and finished with little time left to make dinner, this would have been something more than nice to be able to pull out of the freezer at a time like that.
