"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Pan-Roasted Shrimp
Pan-Roasted Shrimp
(Gamberi in Padella)

1/2 lb large shrimp, peeled
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped or passed through a garlic press
Pinch of dried red-pepper flakes, or 1 or 2 whole dried peperoncino (hot peppers)
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley

Remove the dark intestinal veins from the shrimp.

As you do, make each cut deep enough to butterfly the shrimp, so each can be opened flat like a book.

Fill a bowl with ice water, add the sea salt and the butterflied shrimp, and let stand for 15 minutes to bring out some of the briny flavor of the shellfish. (Removing their shells robs the shrimp of some of their natural flavor.)

Drain and dry thoroughly with a cotton kitchen towel.

In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil.

Add the garlic and hot pepper and saute gently until the garlic softens but is not browned, about 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp, placing them opened flat on the bottom of the pan so they do not curl too much.

Saute, turning once, until they are opaque, about 2 minutes on each side.

Add the wine, stir and cook for an additional 30 seconds to allow alcohol to evaporate.

Remove and discard the whole peppers, if using.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
