October 26, 2011 by Joan Nova in Italian, Pasta, Seafood, Wordless Wednesday | 12 Comments

Rosemary-skewered grilled shrimp, basil pesto, dollop of tomato aioli*; finished with freshly ground black pepper and a little feta cheese.

*fresh tomatoes emulsified with olive oil and garlic.

 You didn’t think I was going to eat this without pasta, did you?
