What we haven’t had yet is seafood. I don’t know why I haven’t made any dish with seafood but I LOVE it more than anything. So here it is, the recipe we are going to make involving shrimp! What a great way to start off the week.
The other day I was talking to my friend who is taking a nutrition class and I asked her how much meat we are supposed to eat per week. She said we are only supposed to eat red meat 2 times a week and seafood (talking about salmon and other fish, but this is close for now) like 3-4 times a week! Then we can also eat chicken and other meat but still… seafood is the best for you, how exciting that we are now making it. We will have to do a salmon dish soon but that is for another day, another time.
This recipe is delicious; plain and simple. I got this from REAL SIMPLE, thanks guys! I love all the ingredients in it and it is SO simple to make and pretty darn good for you! So put your gloves on, unless you want your fingers to smell like fish all day YUCK! and get your knife out and start cookin’.
The ingredients are:
5 large tomatoes, cut into eighths
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
kosher salt and black pepper
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup Feta, crumbled
Now, the recipe says to have crusty bread for serving but if you want you can put this on top of some whole wheat noodles and have a sort of fetuccini dish, sounds good huh :).
Before eating it you of course have to cook it. To do this
- Heat oven to 450° F. Place the tomatoes in a large baking dish and spoon the olive oil and garlic over them.
- Sprinkle with ¾ teaspoon each salt and pepper and toss. Put the dish on top rack of oven for 20 minutes.
- Remove baking dish from oven and stir in the shrimp, parsley, and lemon juice. Sprinkle with the Feta.
- Return the dish to oven until the shrimp are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes.
I swear this took me less time to make than it did to cook it. It is seriously really tasteful and will cure your craving for seafood in no time! If you want, I didn’t but you definitely can, make one of the salads we have made before, it would be a nice side for the dish. Remember to not have more than a serving… about the size of the palm of your hand.
Well here is your recipe for the day! let me know what you think and how it can be improved or not! Thanks for reading
