"Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it." -Winston Groom, Author of Forrest Gump
This recipe is quick, easy and very elegant. It has a lovely Mediterranean flavor and goes great over Saffron Rice. There's a higher fat content than some Dr. Gourmet recipes, but these are healthy monounsaturated fats from the olive oil and the pistachios.
