Ditto - loving the lamb guys. I'm sure your simple marinade is the stuff.

I'm going to steam up some 16-20 per pound sized shrimp tonight. I wanna try out a bottle of shrimp cocktail sauce I just bought that has horseradish in it. I've always bought just the plain Del Monte cocktail sauce without horseradish in it. Some potato salad, baked beans and sourdough rolls to go with it.

I marinated boneless chicken breast in:

juice of 1 lime
zest
2 cloves garlic
2 T fresh ginger
2 T light soy sauce
1 tsp muscovado brown sugar
salt
pepper
Marinated for 30 or so minutes. Grilled that and served it in a ring of rice with coriander and lime, and fresh wild asparagus.

Try this Caslon:

Get yourself a bottle of ketchup style chili sauce and a bottle of horseradish and mix your own to the heat you desire. It's easy and oh!!! so good! another Alternative sauce is any version of bleu cheese. Yum. Enjoy your dinner!!

Good tip as I usually keep horseradish and chili sauce around. For those times if I'm out of cocktail sauce and going to the store just for cocktail sauce is too much hassle, and I have shrimp in the freezer. Thanks.
