Summer Grilling

Summer is my favorite time of year for making great food on the grill (like Grilled Steak Fajitas). Grilling is easy, delicious and means we don’t have to heat up the house with the oven!

Unfortunately, along with grilling sometimes comes heartburn. In fact, Omeprazole ODT commissioned the “Prevent the Summer Burn” survey of 1,029 American heartburn sufferers and found that 42 percent categorize summer as the worst time for heartburn and more than half of sufferers claim that outdoor barbecues worsen their heartburn. This shouldn’t stop us from eating our favorites!

Always talk to your doctor or a licensed professional before taking a new medication.

If you’re a frequent heartburn sufferer, being proactive and taking Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets (also referred to as ODT) helps keep heartburn at bay. ODT can provide affordable relief to those of us that suffer from heartburn two or more days/week, and you can grab it at Walmart (or other retailers) while you’re grabbing your groceries! Find Omeprazole ODT at a retailer near you. If you’re like me, it’s not always easy to remember to take medication on time. Having tablets that can easily dissolve on the tongue means I can keep a stash in my purse and discreetly take them any time and any place (without water). Perfect for someone like me who is on the go all of the time!

Relief can come in as little as 24 hours but it can take up to 1-4 days for full effect and is not for immediate relief). They’re so convenient, simply place the strawberry-flavored tablet on your tongue and let it dissolve (they’re the same small size shown on the box). Being able to take heartburn medication easily and discreetly makes summers easier and definitely more enjoyable… and allows me to enjoy my favorite summer foods like these Sriracha Grilled Shrimp!

Use Omeprazole ODT as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn. Do not take it for more than 14 days or more frequently than every 4 months unless directed by a doctor.

Sriracha Marinade

This marinade is easy to make and it’s a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy!

I start with frozen shrimp (of course fresh works if you have it available in your area) and defrost in the fridge or under really cold water. Peeled & deveined shrimp is easy to make and easy to eat plus it’s better to enjoy the flavor of the marinade.

Marinate the shrimp for 30-60 minutes.

How To Grill Shrimp

The key to keeping shrimp juicy and tender when grilling is to be sure you don’t overcook it.

To Make Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers:

  1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. This will help keep the shrimp from sticking to them and prevent the wood from burning when it hits the grill.
  2. Marinate the shrimp in all of the ingredients for 30 minutes. Shrimp doesn’t need to marinate long, as it is a light seafood.
  3. Thread the shrimp on the skewers, and grill for 6-8 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

What To Serve With Grilled Shrimp

Grilled shrimp is perfect with other summer favorites. I love enjoying them with creamy cucumber salad, mojitos, any summer salad – really. They’re perfect in tacos, and as a topper for just about any pasta dish – mainly scampi.

Spicy food is my favorite (you’ll find me adding jalapenos to just about everything I can), but heartburn is always a risk with my favorites. It doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying recipes like this one!
