Shrimp with Verde Sauce

Verde is ‘green’ in Spanish and this dish is VERY green. The processed parsley and green onions put a great color on these shrimp. This is one of those restaurant worthy dishes – and it only takes minutes to prep ! Cut out the bread and you cut out tons of calories here – shrimp are very low cal !!

1 c chopped flat leaf parsley
½ t salt
½ t pepper
¼ t red pepper flakes
2 ¼ lb. large shrimp, cleaned and peeled

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place oil and garlic in food processor and process until garlic is fine then add onions and parsley and process again. Place in a bowl and add salt and peppers. Add shrimp and mix to coat. Place in a shallow roasting pan and add wine. Bake 7 – 10 minutes or until done. If the shrimp are not in a single layer, you may want to stir halfway through to ensure even cooking. Serve with bread for dipping in extra sauce.

SAVE A TREE !! Use Palm Plates Instead of Paper Plates

Disposable ECO FRIENDLY Palm Plates from Marxfoods.com are a great way to do something for the environment, and still be elegantly in style 🙂

The plates are just gorgeous to look at – they are earthy and elegant all at the same time – and they fit right into backyard gatherings, picnics, barbecues, as easily as they fit into every day life.

I have used them in their expected manner (as a replacement for disposable paper plates) and I have also used them as serving dishes for items that can be quickly wiped off the surface (like pretzels, bread, nuts) so that I can use them again and again. No matter what paper plate I’ve used, I’ve never had the urge to hang on to it because of it’s beauty. But if you fall in love with these plates like I have, then I’m sure you’ll find yourself doing the same thing 🙂

The plates come in all shapes and sizes and there are even matching forks, spoons and knives available. All are priced right on the Marxfoods.com website and you can get much information about how the plates are made – it’s really pretty amazing.

I have gone so far as to repurpose a few gently used plates and they have stood up well to a light washing – bet you can’t do that with your Chinette plate 😉

You’ll be seeing many pictures on my blog using these plates – they are definitely on my list of favorite products and I hope they become one of yours too. But for now I’ll sit and look at them naked (the plates naked, not me – haha), that is when they look just perfect as a picture.
