Getting Moosey with Natashya - Greek Scampi
Moosewood Cooks at Home has long been a stained, dog earred cookbook that has graced our kitchen for over 15 years. Good recipes.
I am happy to join Natashya for her Moosewood Monday series this week.
If you fancy Greek Scampi - this is for you!
You'll need the following..... 1/2 lb shrimp, 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 cup diced tomato 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled Juice of 1/2 a lemon 2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped (3/4 teaspoon dried) salt and pepper
Shell and devein shrimp and set aside. Doug does this because if I peel raw shrimp…I get weird rashes all over. My hands, my neck, spots down my spine.
Say that three times fast! Spots down my spine, Spots down my spine, Spots down my spine !!
Be sure to have all your ingredients lined up because this is a super fast dish to toss together. You’ll be impressed and so will anyone who eats this pretty and tasty meal.
Sauté the garlic in the oil then add the shrimp. Cook on medium heat for a minute or until the shrimps are pink.
Add tomatoes, feta, lemon juice, and dill. Stir.
The tomato and their juices and the feta will make a creamy sauce that coast the shrimp.
That’s it – it’s done and ready to eat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
How simple is that? You may serve this over rice or pasta. We like the angel hair textured pasta….just plop a few hearty spoonfuls of your scampi over the pasta, grab a cold glass of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc or iced tea. Slice some bread.
Deep sigh……..because this is comfort food with a Mediterranean accent. From Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home Get your Moosey on – visit Natashya.
