Whipped this up when the site was down due to Hurricane Sandy.

This was not all of the ingredients, but a few to give you an idea of what was all in it.

Gave the shrimp a marinade of EVOO, Salt, Pepper, Lemon Juice and White Wine Vinegar...

Tossed some Cherry Tomatoes, Garlic, a little more S&P, EVOO, Lemon Juice, White Wine Vinegar, Fresh Oregano and Fresh Dill on top before cooking it up on the BGE.

Image

Cooked it up in the Wok at around 350 deg f at first, but then bumped it up to about 450-500 deg f to finish...

I also boiled up some Orzo before wokking this up. After the Orzo was finished, I drained it and tossed that with some EVOO, S&P, and Lemon Juice. Once that cooled down, I tossed it with some Kalamata Olives, Capers, Diced Cucumbers, Feta Cheese, Oregano and Dill. Then poured the Shrimp and Tomato mixture over that and garnished it with some more Oregano and Dill.

Not only does it look really tasty but it looks pretty healthy, too! Is it from a public recipe somewhere or did you make it up yourself? The rest of my family would probably really like it.

Thanks, Brad! I had a copy of a Big Green Egg Lifestyle Magazine, and that's what gave me the inspiration...

Except there was no recipe. :roll: :lol: Just the pic on the front. So I just sorta did my own thing with it. :) Turned out great though.
