WOW! This was amazing! it was 94 degrees today and this hit the spot. My kids loved the shrimp and had it with pasta.Grown ups with the gazpacho and baguette. I did add the zest of one lemon and a tsp of juice to the gazpacho and after it refrigerated for 20 minutes was the bomb.
Wow. This is so quick to prepare. I made the gazpacho as directed and doubled the salt, then, actually, salted a little bit more. It tasted very good, but I wanted a kick so added some sriracha hot sauce to taste. I cooked the shrimp as directed, also adding a tad more salt. This is definitely something to impress company, and w/o the breadcrumbs of a traditional gazpacho, is Gluten Free. I had gluten free bread, toasted, with Manchego Cheese, adapting the Manchego Toasts from the recipe. What a great meal. Thanks, Cooking Light!
