Our mate, chef Pete Evans, joins us from Down Under to cook garlic and chili shrimp with red grapefruit and fennel salad. Instead of putting the shrimp on the barbie, he opts to steam them for this dish. He cautions not to overcook the shrimp and suggests adding flavor with dressing. Pete's recipe allows you to choose whatever type of citrus you desire.
- Important to remove the white pith from the citrus as it is quite bitter.
- For sweeter garlic, roast whole then chop and add to your dressing.
- You can marinate the shrimp a day in advance in the fridge to intensify the flavors.
Check out Pete at peteevanschef.com and Facebook.com/peteevanschef and follow him on Twitter @PeteEvansChef. His show, "Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking," premieres Sunday, September 8 on PBS. Go to www.finecooking.tv/ for local listings. And, get a copy of his book, "My Grill."
