My trip to Costco last week was the entire inspiration behind this particular discovery. Giant juicy shrimp, tangy tzatziki sauce, and mini naan all found their way into my cart and, with one more ingredient, a Fat Tuesday dinner. This meal was all about seasonal timing, keeping things simple and enjoying the occasional finger food.
With the season of Lent now upon us, seafood has been on sale in my neck of the woods. Giant raw, in-shell U15 shrimp were less than $10/pound at Costco last week. Though we still have more than a foot of snow on the ground, we are close enough for spring that seasonal tzatziki was back in the store, too. Yeah! I know it is a simple make, but sometimes, it's OK to be convenient.
I started with marinating the shrimp in a Greek vinaigrette for an hour. Then steamed them in the Instant Pot for 1 minute. One minute! Ok, really about 25 minutes by the time it built pressure, cooked for a minute and released pressure.
We enjoyed a dinner with fun finger sandwiches, plenty of napkins and a lot of laughs. These sliders would make excellent party bites, too.
