I love it.
A few nights ago,I had no idea what we were going to have for dinner. Not a clue. Until lunch that day,when I caught up on a favorite magazine of mine,Fine cooking. I love this magazine almost as much as I love rosemary.Great photos,detailed how-to's and great introductions to certain cooking methods,ingredients,seasonal recipes,wine pairings....etc.
I found within those pages a simple,fresh dinner idea that I just fell for and even better if I paired it with pasta,we would have leftovers for lunches the rest of the week.
I was gonna ditch the deli meat for a few days,what a prospect!
Let me tell you how wonderful this roasted shrimp dish was :
Gather you ingredients: a fairly good size baking dish,extra-virgin olive oil,salt,pepper,white wine vinegar,rosemary,thyme,pasta and ooooo weeee feta. Most folks just call it feta.
Oh and some shrimp.Might be helpful and all.
You preheat your oven and then pour your oil in the baking dish and add your herbs and black pepper. I threw in a little red pepper flakes.I like my food spicy.My godson Bishop,when he was a wee one called it "picy." Yes spicy minus the S. Picy.
See now here's the dealio: By heating up the oil and herbs you get all them seasoning baking together,jiving( if you will) and then comes the shrimp.Bake those jewels for a bit and then it's magic time.(While the shrimp bakes,cook your pasta according to the package directions.)
Yes I know this is the same photo as above and thsi photo is very large,but look closely. Go on look.
See the bubbles there in the top right corner or so...
That would be the white wine vinegar,extra-virgin olive oil and salt making some magic happen.The combination of the vinegar,salt and olive oil produces a flavor like no other. Weeeelll wait no wait it's like buttah! No really the reaction of the vinegar and salt hitting with the hot oil coats the shrimp and herbs in a melted butter-like mixture.I'm tellin' you it's hard to tell the difference.
Unless you prepared the dish yourself. Well then you would know,but your guests won't.
