Usually for Taco Tuesday at our house I make traditional beef tacos or my Baked Chicken Fajitas. However, this week I decided to try something a little bit different — shrimp tacos.
While the shrimp were baking, I mixed up the Boom Boom Sauce. Have you ever heard of Boom Boom Sauce? I hadn’t…until this week. My friend, Angelina, had some leftover from one of her favorite sandwich shops. As soon as I tried it, I knew it would go perfectly with this recipe.
It took a little bit of trial and error to get the ingredients just right, but I believe I managed to make a pretty awesome copycat sauce. It’s a little sweet, a little garlicky and packs a nice boom! Not too much, though. Just a little zip to wake up your taste buds.
The best part was these shrimp tacos were ready to eat in under 20 minutes! Just 20 minutes.
There was so much flavor and texture in these tacos. We couldn’t get enough of them! In fact, as I’m writing this blog post, I can’t stop thinking about them. I’m going to have to make them again VERY soon.
It was one of those nights. I got home from work late. I hadn’t been to the butcher so we didn’t have any meat. What would we have for dinner? The natives were getting restless. I found myself standing in front of the pantry staring blankly into the abyss. Nothing in there inspired me. Maybe there was something in the fridge. I found a package of pre-made gnocchi. Hmmm…that had possibilities. I found some leftover heavy cream. OK. I can see this coming together. Ohh! A hunk of parmesan cheese. I think I’ve got something here. Gnocchi with Parmesan Cream Sauce! Oh, and some broccoli too! Gnocchi and Broccoli in a Parmesan Cream Sauce. Ding. Ding. We have a winner!
Raise your hand if you LOVE garlic! Me! Me! Me! That must be what initially drew me to this recipe. Just look at the first ingredient….20 cloves of garlic. It’s a good thing my husband and son really love garlic too, considering how much we go through in this house. I love garlic in any way, shape or form. I’m curious though…I’ve never had black garlic. I’m wondering what it’s like, but the grocery stores in my area don’t carry it. Have any of you tried black garlic
