A couple months ago I participated in the Shrimp Showdown, hosted by OXO and The Shrimp Councel.  I received 5 lbs of HUGE shrimp from Eastern Fish Company.

I couldn’t decide between two recipes: Spicy Shrimp Roll or Shrimp Scampi Pasta.

So I made both!

We had quite the Shrimp Extravaganza that day.  It was beautiful.  Glorious. The Best Day Evuh.
