Shrimp Skewers and Cauliflower Mash

These pesto coated shrimp skewers pair incredibly well with a light cauliflower mash. When cooked with butter, heavy cream and parmesan, the cauliflower really gets a silky softness. If you're in the mood to spice things up a little bit, replace the pesto with some aioli sauce!

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
