Summer Cilantro Shrimp

This is a favorite recipe of mine. First of all let's talk shrimp. Minnesota grown shrimp is available in Elgin Minnesota. 
The company is called North Tide Farm. It is a first of it's kind indoor saltwater shrimp farm here in Minnesota. They raise pacific white shrimp.

Taken right from their website: 
We raise Pacific White shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) in a zero waste environment free of chemicals, antibiotics, and growth hormones and sell them fresh to you!
There website -

So now onto the recipe

1 bunch of cilantro
2 jalapeno's seeded. 
2 scallions
2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
3/4 cup EVOO
1-2  pound shrimp peeled and deveined
(the reason 1-2 pounds is because the marinade will cover up to 2 pounds) 
sea salt, and pepper
zest and juice of one lime
skewers soaked in water for a few hours or longer. 

In a food processor or vitamix blender combine cilantro, jalapeno's, scallions, ginger and olive oil. Blend until combined.
Put the shrimp in a bowl and pour the cilantro marinade over the top. I leave this sit for up to 4 hours. But you can go an hour and call it good.
Then I put them on the skewers and cook on the grill for 3 minutes on each side depending on how hot your grill is.
Then Enjoy however you would like!
We eat ours with a Cilantro Salad Recipe to come soon!

Essential Oils

Since starting my journey using Young Living I have been trying to spread and share all my positives with people. 

Throughout the day we use almost every oil in the Premium starter kit. Pan away is the one that doesn't see much action in this house but it has seen some.

I love the diffuser in the premium starter kit. It get's so much use in our home.

One of my favorite oils in the Premium Starter kit is Frankincense. I had a skin tag on my eyelid since I had my son in 2009. It drove me crazy and I tried a few other "home" remedies to rid myself of it. 

Frankincense was it! It took morning and night application, but I'm happy to say it is gone! 
I also use Frank "neat" on my fine lines, and a few scars on my face.

If you are interested in your own Premium starter kit it is well worth the cost because of the diffuser being included plus 11 oils!!  Click here for your own kit!

** Note that the diffuser pictured may not be the one that comes with your kit. Young Living is short in supply due to high demand at this time. The Dew Drop diffuser is now being included still a great diffuser offered by YL**
