Had to add, it’s my birthday tomorrow. Having friends in for dinner tonight

I enjoy shrimp as you may have guessed so can’t resist new recipes using them. This came in from My Recipes.

Bacon, Arugula, and Shrimp Salad

Bacon, Arugula, and Shrimp Salad RecipeSource: Cooking Light
  • 2 slices center-cut bacon
  • 1 1/2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • 5 cups arugula leaves (about 2 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preparation
  1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from the pan, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings in pan. Crumble bacon, and set aside. Add shrimp to drippings in the pan; sauté 5 minutes or until done. Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to a large bowl. Add arugula leaves and halved cherry tomatoes to shrimp; toss gently.

  1. Any idea that I could maybe handle some shrimp went down the drain last week when I broke out in a rash from Chinese food we ordered. The chicken chow mein ended up containing oyster sauce. :(
