My first hand account of the ongoing search for health and wellness through a conscious focus on nutrition, cooking, ingenuity, and physical exertion. As an active stay at home mother of two young children, I spend large portions of my day in my kitchen inventing new recipes and reinventing old favorites into fun, healthy and delicious meals my whole family loves... especially while on the run... literally.
Nothing super fancy or ingenious here, simply my take on the traditional seafood sauce minus the corn syrup, coloring and artificiality often found in store bought brands. Full of flavor, not too salty, not too sweet, it goes perfect with cold cocktail shrimp. The recipe does make a decent amount so it would be better for a party than as an appetizer for two or three like I had intended, but it was literally so good that I had a few spoonfuls of it alone when I was done with my shrimp, simply because I hate to see things go to waste. I know it might be easier to just buy a jar, but honestly this took five minutes to stir together and the quality, taste, and nutritional value, are incomparable.
