Seafood on the Barbie... Or How I Love Summer and Barbecue

It's that time of year again where it gets warm, 
the sun hangs out extra late in the evenings, 
and the barbecue is on more evenings than not. 

There's something about the smokey smell of BBQ 
combined with the 8:00 pm twilight that fills my heart with smiles.
Plus, a good set of tan lines always makes me happy. 
How best do you celebrate the long days and sunshine?
With some seafood on that beloved barbie! 

Cajun Lemon Salmon Tacos
Lemon
Cajun Spice (I use Mrs. Dash)
Pepper
Salt
Arugula
Carrots
Tortillas

Wrap the salmon pieces in tin foil and squeeze lemons over them. 
Sprinkle with cajun spice, pepper, and salt to your taste.
Close up the dressed salmon in little foil envelopes and toss on the grill.
Meanwhile, heat your tortillas.
Add all ingredients to tortilla and top with salsa or guacamole.
(if that's your thing) 
Simply enjoy! 

Lime-Sriracha Shrimp Kabobs
Lime
Olive Oil
Sriracha
Shrimp

Add shrimp to a zip-loc bag.
Squeeze juice of one lime and some sriracha over the shrimp.
Drizzle with a bit of olive oil. 
Close bag up and shake to cover shrimp in marinade.
Let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Spear the shrimps with kabob sticks.
Toss on the barbie and grill! 
(a note: shrimp cooks fast. Pay attention or you'll burn it before you know!)

Happy Start of Summertime friends!
Time for barbecue, late evening sunshine, and tan lines!
