Pumkin Soup & Three Pepper Shrimp

I did some of the cooking for Thanksgiving this week (no, not the Turkey - did that once and it can't be topped) - not sure if the combo is very traditional but yummy for sure:

Pumpkin soup & Three Pepper Shrimp

My personal recipe for the shrimp - nothing new or unique but so easy and quite tasteful if you want to try:

5-6 medium to large shrimp per person
Black, white, green pepper (I grind them fairly coarse)
Olive oil and grape seed oil
Salt and Red Pepper flakes

Toss shrimp with good dosing of olive oil (you can use a neutral oil if you don't like the taste of Olive oil) and 1/2 - 1 tbs of pepper per serving. Let marinate for about an hour.
Heat non-stick skillet on medium heat with little bit of grape seed oil; grill shrimps in batches for about 2 minutes on each side (don't overcook or they get rubbery).
Salt and add Red Pepper Flakes to taste (this is spicy version, you can skip Red Pepper and it still taste great)

Can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature. Bon Appetit!


  1. Pumpkin soup and Shrimp sounds perfect and light after a heavy Thanksgiving meal. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

  2. Good food and company... yes, this translates into a good Thankgiving for me. Hoping you had a relaxing one as well :-)
