I was asked to try making a Safeway holiday recipe of my choice this weekend. I decided to try out three of their recipes! I love our local Safeway, and not just because my husband used to work there 😉 (Yesterday was his last day! Woo-hoo!) Although I’m getting reimbursed for my ingredients for these three posts, I am only doing this because I shop at Safeway and Eric and I both enjoyed these dishes. Check out Gingerbread Cookies and Fudge Ring.
The first thing I made was the Marinated Shrimp with Lemon Dill Sauce. Part of why I picked it was that the photo on the site didn’t look that appetizing and I felt a challenge to do better! I discovered the key is to not have so much sauce on the shrimp for the photo, and that toothpicks are really tough to make look attractive. Anyway, we ended up liking it better with less sauce anyway (and it’s better for you!) so next time I make these (and there WILL be a next time) I’ll halve the sauce or use more shrimp.
