And I’m so full of New Year cheer, here’s a recipe. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!

The happs – they have been crazy. No need to explain, just eat some shrimp. These are pleasantly heated. Yes!

Jon’s Spicy Citrus Shrimp

  • 2-3 jalapeno peppers, roughly chopped (remove seeds if desired)
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3 tangerines, juiced, zest of 1
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1lime, juiced and zested
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4-5  sprigs fresh thyme, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 lb raw black tiger shrimp peeled and de-veined
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Directions

Combine all ingredients except shrimp in a heavy plastic freezer bag, or in a large, shallow bowl.
Immerse shrimp in marinade, and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Skewer shrimp and place on a baking sheet, pouring a little bit of marinade over each skewer.
Broil 2-3 minutes each side.

IF you want (and I recommend), reserve and strain some of the marinade (prior to adding shrimp) into a small saucepan and bring to a boil, and let it reduce by about 1/4 in volume. You will be left with a sauce. You can put it on rice. It’s good. I promise.

My new year’s resolution includes making you fat. Okay! More posts!

(I realize this post is sub-par, but it comes out of neglect and desperation, like an English essay where you find out there is no extension coming your way. There is only one phrase to describe such a situation: “Balls.” And it is applicable here.)

Jon would also like to inform you all that he is watching “Dirty Jobs,” on Discovery, and he loves Mike Rowe.
