Garden To Table: Spicy Shrimp & Dice Potatoes

This Spicy Shrimp and delicious tender Diced Potatoes dish put a smile on my husband’s face.  My husband seems to have a thing for potatoes and I try to cook them in moderation.  The other day I made this dish using some potatoes we harvest from the garden and added some shrimp to spice it up a bit.

1/2 Cup water

Old Bay Seasoning

Although the shrimp are spicy, they weren’t extremely spicy. I was able to enjoy them and that’s a plus because I can’t do extremely spicy food.  Hope you get to try this and enjoy as much as we did.  Does your husband have a thing for potatoes?
