Do you remember in grade school when a kid would say, “Do you like see food?” And when another kid would answer “Yes” they’d show the food in their mouth?
Well, I never had to deal with that because I’ve never liked Sea Food, so my answer was always No.
So a couple years ago at the Hibachi Grill around here I shocked the heck out of my mother because some guy and his girlfriend sitting in the same area as us actually conned me into trying a California Roll. I think I had to pick my mom’s jaw up off the floor even.
Then early last year hubby went to a Hibachi grill with work and they conned him in to trying sushi. Ok so he’s a little more willing to try things than I am :). But anyway I will eat California Rolls. So while we were in Tulsa, we went to a grocery store there and they had salmon, which hubby has been wanting, plus we picked up shrimp and some California Rolls.
I ran across this Shrimp recipe I wanted to try. Yes, me, the girl who DOESN’T like anything that comes out of water. But hubs thought the California Rolls would be great for an appetizer.

Pour mixture over shrimp and chill for at least 1/2 hour.
Put shrimp on skewers
and grill until firm and pink.
In a small bowl, combine honey, lime juice and cayenne.
Brush on shrimp at the end of cooking.
They weren’t bad in my opinion, but remember, I’m not totally crazy about seafood, but I actually ate them. Hubs Loved it 🙂
Then we had to decide something to go along side the shrimp; we chose cheesy veggies.
Frozen veggie mix (we chose broccoli, cauliflower & carrots)
Heat the veggies, add the cheese and melt.
