Ginger Shrimp with Apricot Salsa

Shrimp and Apricot Salsa 038(f) Ok, I can’t help myself – just ONE more shrimp recipe and then I promise to switch to something else for awhile.  In all fairness, I did cook a fabulous salmon with fresh blueberry sauce but I took the pics outside and wasn’t paying attention to the camera settings and they are all horribly overexposed!  […] Continue reading →
