I always use the cooked shrimp because I have a seafood smell phobia!
1 lb cooked large shrimp
2-3T Canola Oil
1/4c Lemon Juice
2T sriracha hot Sauce (chinese rooster)
2t red pepper flakes
sea salt and pepper
Mix all liquid ingredients with a whisk then poor over shrimp, marinate for at least 8 hrs stirring in between and throw on the grill with some veggies of your choice

Penne Pesto Chicken Salad

1/4c Pesto Sauce ( I used a condensed version and mixed it with oil)
1-2c Spinach
2c Penne Noodles Cooked, drained and rinsed with cold water
2 chicken breast ( I grilled mine) Prepare how you like them
1/2c feta cheese(crumbles)
cook the noodles and chicken as desired and then blend other ingredients together. Serve with the yummy rolls recipe and it'll go down in the history books!
