Lots to do again today. I’m interviewing an alts tailor for one, preparing for a dinner party tonight and another tomorrow.
I’ll leave you today with a nice little recipe that works very well for shrimp, chicken and/or pita bread.
The Easy and Elegant Life Quick All-Purpose Marinade.
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Juice of two lemons
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/2 onion, minced
1/2 red bell pepper minced
Generous dash of red pepper flakes
Teaspoon of dried oregano or a couple of stalk’s worth of fresh leaves.
Marinate shrimp or chicken for twenty minutes a side, if you’ve got the time. Brush some of the mixture on to the pita bread and toast or grill.
Heat a cast iron skillet to smokin’ hot. Cook the shrimp or chicken until it is done. Serve over orzo salad or a Greek salad. Or stuff the pita halves with lettuce, red onion, black olives, tomato and the meat/shellfish. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar or lemon juice. Top with tzatziki* sauce for a quick souvlaki.
* 1 container of Greek yoghurt, 1/2 a grated cucumber, 1 crushed clove of garlic, salt, pepper, dash of olive oil, dash of lemon juice. Mix. This is the quick version. Drain the cucumber over night if you have the time.
