Psychic Cooking

You know, that recipe in your previous post was originally for scallops, and I decided to use shrimp instead. I guess you read my mind on that one--again. Lately I don't like handling and smelling the raw shrimp mixture and find it hard to enjoy the cakes unless someone (like Lawson) makes them for me, so I haven't made them recently. I'll try them with scallops. Here's the recipe for the sauce that goes with them. It's great on sandwiches also.

Cilantro-Lime Mayonnaise

1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 dashes hot pepper sauce

Blend ingredients in food processor until finely chopped.

¾ cup mayonnaise
Salt and pepper

Add mayonnaise and mix until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill one hour or more.

Did Dad grow that cilantro in the picture?

We put this stuff on everything. I thinned it out a bit this time and have been using it as salad dressing. Yum.
