Last year I taught a cooking class at the Mystic cooking school in CT.

It was an olive oil tasting/Greek foods cooked with these oils.

I prepared a shrimp dish that was from a little restaurant on the Ionian islands.

It was a sautee of shrimp (shell on) with garlic,lemon,oregano,tomato concasse,olive oil,parsley salt and pepper.

This I then placed in a cassarole and topped with dry feta and broiled for a moment.

Turnip Greens are Better than Nothing. Ask the people who have tried both.

The seasoning would probably include copious amounts of black pepper and dried oregano.

Toni10 -- Sounds delish. Also sounds similar to Portuguese shrimp that I've eaten at some local restaurants. It's always on the menu as "House Style Shrimp" and involves shrimp sauteed in olive oil, sherry or beer, garlic and spices that I approximate at home with salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne. You can peel and eat the shrimp and soak up the sauce with bread.

Think of all the fun and good eating you'll have trying to recreate the dish -- butter, garlic, shrimp, spices -- what could be bad? :wink:
