This recipe is from www.kitchenmixes.com. It is a great substitute for the boxed onion soup mix. It equals one packet or about 1-1/4 ounces. You can add garlic powder or other seasonings if you wish. It also makes a great gift for cooks. Make up some packets of onion soup mix, add a soup ladel, soup bowls, soup spoons, recipes, and some non-perishable ingredients. Place in a basket or pretty box wrapped in a tea towel.
Most of the ingredients in this should be found in your pantry; the shrimp may be the only thing you have to buy. The cooking method is derived from Mark Bittman, the flavor profile from Amanda Hesser, the recipe from Phoebe Lapine and Cara Eisenpress at Serious Eats. http://bit.ly/fbwn7X
Use this recipe as a template for other shrimp skewers. If you don't have honey mustard, stir a little honey into Dijon. Limes would also work well instead of lemons. And if you're finding your home-grown chives or parsley getting out of hand, substitute them for the basil.
These need to marinate for 45 minutes before cooking.
