An Appertizer to Impress Mom

Mothers day is here and we want to share this day with our family, especially with our moms or the moms of the house.  It's good if we can celebrate it all together with them, cook up supper or ask your mom if she can cook your favorite soup or any of your favorite food you remember from your childhood, I'm pretty sure that would be a delight but don't forget to say thanks and ask for the recipe. Thinking on what to give your mom? Well in my opinion moms don't ask much about expensive gifts, just be yourself and please don't forget to greet your mom and say that you love her. Gifts don't have to be material things, it can be that you all visit her favorite hangout or just bond together through cooking or just help her in chores, it ain't much but you'll make her smile and happy and that's what matter most.  To see your mom happy also makes you happy definitely and make the most out of this day. 

There’s nothing like a simple dish of sautéed shrimps which you can prepare and cook in 15 minutes and serve to your hungry guests to whet their appetite while waiting for dinner or a special lunch.
While waiting for your mom to come over, why not try out an easy recipe? It fits right in with almost any kind of cuisine, whether French, Italian, or Asian.  This dish also makes for delicious and healthy refreshment on a warm and sunny day, perfectly paired with a cold white wine.  Whether you are on a beach vacation or having a backyard barbecue, this simple recipe will do the trick to liven up your planned or spontaneous menu.  You can serve them with salad, top them over steamed rice, add them to noodles or pasta, put them on bread to make crostini, use them as filling for tacos, or gobble them up with cold beer during movie night.
