Balsamic Shrimp

Balsamic Vinegar was used as a disinfectant in the middle ages. Considering our worldly circumstances, it seemed like a timely and shareable fact. I’ve always been fascinated with the multi-uses of vinegar in general; its preservative and healing properties mostly. Growing up as a child, vinegar was the go-to for tummy aches and colds. As such it is a life and kitchen staple. Suitably, this post is about the tastier appeals of this liquid gold. As always, enjoy!


  • Shrimp (1 pound)
  • Balsamic Vinegar (1/4 cup)
  • Garlic (2 cloves, finely chopped)
  • Honey (1 tablespoon)
  • Olive Oil (1 1/2 tablespoon)
  • Black Pepper (1 teaspoon)
  • Oregano (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Red Pepper Flakes (1 teaspoon)
  • Parsley (a few sprigs, for garnish)
  • Salt (1 teaspoon)
