In the meantime, I have littered the cookbook with post it notes, marking all of the recipes I wanted to try.    I knew that this one would be on the short list though.

Dinner in 10 minutes — and it’s a seafood dish?!  YES, Please!

I’m not sure why I don’t prepare seafood at home more often.  It’s sort of one of those things that we typically go out for.  This recipe was CRAZY easy — and I think it made a really pretty presentation, too.

 The recipe simply starts with Asian Toasted Sesame dressing.  The shrimp gets cooked in the dressing,  served over rice and sprinkled with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

How easy is THAT??
