Sesame Shrimp Salad

A quick yet delectable Sesame shrimp salad…

Some days, I just love to curl up on my couch with my eyes glued to a movie or my ears glued to music. Those days I do wish if there was some way to cook food without my direct involvement. Well, there are frozen food options which I am not so keen about. Sometimes, I do cook food in a hurry burry. Even in a hurry burry I make sure to make it delicious as my taste buds and body are so particular about that.

Whenever I make easy dishes and when it tastes great, I get the feeling that food can be always made in an easy yet delicious way. Here is one such dish I made on an extremely lazy day which turned out to be just great.
