More kitchen favorites

In addition to the couscous - here are a few more faves from our kitchen. Sorry I dont have pics - trust me these are great!

Broiled Shrimp with Garlic, Tomatoes and Feta

1lb frozen whole med. shrimp
1 lemon
2-3 teas minced garlic
1 pkg. cherry tomatoes halfed
1 small container reduced fat feta
olive oil drizzle

Line a cookie sheet with foil. Spread shrimp, tomatoes and garlic over the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and the juice from 1 lemon. Top with feta and broil on med-high for 8-10mins or until shrimp is opaque and feta is slightly browned.

Bruschetta Stuffed Salmon

This works best with a whole salmon on the BBQ but could also be done in an oven.

3 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
fresh ground pepper and coarse salt

Purchase (or have your butcher do this for you) a whole de-headed salmon, split and cleaned. Stuff the cavity with the bruschetta. Wrap the fish loosely with foil and BBQ until fork tender. (about 20mins for a medium fish)

Just a question...do you thaw the shrimp first?

Karin - I dont usually - but I get the precooked to save time (and money!) If you use fresh you may have to adjust the timing slightly. Let me know if you try it!
