greek Shrimp in Foil Packets

Submitted by: ONEOFAKIND864

Introduction

This is a super and quick and beautiful meal- and no one would believe how easy it actually is. It may seem overly high in sodium and fat-- But it's actually loaded with healthy omega fats and protein. It does run a little high in sodium and I would not make this for anyone on a heart restricted diet. But don't let the 14 grams of fat put you off- it a good fat. And I promise this will impress your guests! This is a super and quick and beautiful meal- and no one would believe how easy it actually is.

Ingredients

    1 pound large shrimp(about 16 shrimp)
    15oz can diced tomatos- italian recipe- drained
    .25 cup pesto sauce
    16 large kalamata olives
    4 oz reduced fat crumbled feta cheese
    1 lemon
    1 cup COOKED basmati rice
    4 Tbls pine nuts
    1 teas greek seasoning( I use Cavenders)

Directions

In a large bowl mix the canned tomatos,pesto sauce and the greek seasoning.

Tear 4 large pieces of foil(heavy duty if you have it.) Place .25 cup cooked basmati rice in center if each roil piece. Divide the raw but peeled and deveined shrimp evenly on top of the rice. Pour the tomato pesto mixture evenly over the shrimp.

Slice the olives and sprinkle over the shrimp. Divide the cheese and sprinkle over as well. Each portion is topped off with 1 tbls pine nuts.

Roll the foil up into packets and place in a baking dish, Bake at 375 for 20 minutes until shrimp is done.

To serve slice open the packets and srve with a slice of quartered lemon and fresh hot bread.

A simple salad of greens,cucumbers, sweet onion and a vinnagrette dressing completes this terrific meal.

** If you are serving for company may I suggest a Pinot grigio wine or "vino verde" offering to compliment this dish? Any wine that could be described as crisp and citrusy would work. Chardonnays do NOT. (trust me I made that mistake!) Oakey and buttery clash with this like chocolate and onions! YIKES
