Kitchen Creations For Cat Lovers by Chef Cat Cora
(NAPSA) - Fresh ingredients are key to pleasing even the most finicky gourmet. And, as many pet parents will tell you, that holds true for two- and four-legged family members alike.
The following recipe, perfect for the two-legged members in the family, comes from my time as Dean of the Meow Mix Acatemy-a school that helps pet parents think more like their cats so that they better understand their pets' needs. It was inspired by some of the wonderful flavors offered to cats in Meow Mix Market Select:
Rub shrimp with salt and pepper, and then rub shrimp with entire Basque blend until well coated. Cover, set in refrigerator, 30 minutes.
Preheat grill and oven to 450 F.
While shrimp sits, make green sauce by combining garlic, bay leaves, pepper, chili and sea salt in mortar and mash until smooth paste is formed. (If you don't have a mortar, put all ingredients in blender with teaspoon of vinegar.) Transfer to mixing bowl. Add parsley, oregano and basil. Whisk in the vinegar and olive oil until well combined.
Place shrimp on hot grill and sear both sides until pink. Remove shrimp.
Set several shrimp onto each plate. Spoon green sauce over shrimp and serve.
