GYCO Shrimp: Winner & Features

I l-ov-e reveal day!!  Even though I was down for the count (see: no internet) for this round of Get Your Chef On, I still perused all the amazing entries and we’ve picked a winner!

I seriously need to start scheduling blog posts again.  I used to always be good to go for a week out.  Lesson learned.

Jen popped her shrimp cooking cherry (can you believe that?!?) with some Shrimp and Veggie Kabobs!

Every entry this round was a total gem and choosing a winner was really hard.  But Jen & I agreed on our #1 pick.

But before we get to the winner, let’s take a look at everyone’s recipes!

First up, these amazing grilled shrimp tacos made by Jenn from Endlessly Inspired.

Chrystal from Yum Eating cooked up some drool worthy Guinness Grilled Shrimp and Steak.

And you all know how I feel about Guinness.

Deb from Cooking on the Front Burner brought some Shrimp Bruschetta.

This is going on Eddie’s birthday party to make list.

So I’m crushing the flavors of this Buffalo Shrimp from A Kitchen Hoor, but to be honest I’m nervous to try them all together.  It’s weird mental thing, please don’t’ ask me why.  I’m weird like that even though I’m sure it tastes great.

Lisa from Cooking with Curls made this killer Shrimp Pesto.

I’ve been obsessed with Pesto Shrimp ever since Mike bartended a private party in December.  The catering chef made pesto shrimp and sent Mike home with 3 quart Ziploc bags.  I ate it all myself.  In two days.  no shame.

And for our Winner of this Shrimp Round of GYCO is…

    I had a sneak peek at all the reveals and the minute I saw that Cajun Shrimp Dip I knew it was going to be the winner! I can’t wait to try it myself. Looking forward to March!

    Congrats Ali!
    Thanks, Julie, for featuring my shrimp. They really are tasty and you should try them. S had the same doubts, but devoured… DEVOURED his dinner.

    Can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next GYCO
