CSA week 1: Scallion recipe

From our fabulous greenhouse volunteer Paula, in case you are hunting for something to do with your scallions in this week’s share:

Mark Bittman’s Shrimp In Green Sauce

from The New York Times

Yield: 4 servings

6 cloves garlic, peeled

⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil

6 scallions, trimmed and chopped

1 cup parsley, leaves and thin stems

2 pounds shrimp, peeled

Salt and pepper to taste

4 dried chilies or a few pinches of crushed red chili flakes, or to taste

⅓ cup stock (shrimp, fish or chicken) or white wine or water

Heat oven to 500 degrees. Combine garlic and oil in a small food processor and blend until smooth, scraping down sides as necessary. Add scallions and parsley and pulse until mixture is minced. Toss with shrimp, salt, pepper and chilies.

Put shrimp in a large roasting pan. Add liquid and place pan in oven. Roast, stirring once, until mixture is bubbly and hot, and shrimp all pink, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve.
