BOHEMIA, N.Y., July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Flavor Your Life, a European Union funded campaign that is dedicated to providing the latest in olive oil news, shares a recipe for bruschette surf and turf prepared with organic olive oil that makes a great appetizer for any party.
This recipe calls for:
6 large whole slices of Tuscan style bread
1¼ cups fresh raw shrimp
1¼ cups of fresh green beans
12 firm ripe tomatoes
2 hardboiled egg yolks
Lemon juice to taste
Organic olive oil
A few leaves of basil
Carrot, celery, onion and garlic to taste
Add a tablespoon of vinegar to water. After cleaning and chopping into small pieces, boil the beans until al dente. Drain well and keep warm. Make a court bouillon with the carrot, celery, small onion, one clove of garlic, salt and a pinch of pepper. Simmer for ten minutes and then remove the vegetables and herbs. Bring back to a boil and then add the raw shrimp, cooking them for 5 minutes. Drain well and add to the beans.
In the meantime, prepare a sauce with the following: organic olive oil, sieved hardboiled egg yolks, lemon juice and chopped parsley. Mix all these ingredients together well and then incorporate the beans and shrimp.
Lightly toast the slices of bread and then rub them lightly with a garlic clove on one side. Distribute the bean and shrimp mixture and then garnish with slices of tomato and basil leaves, finishing with a drizzle of olive oil. You can also try this recipe with Italian olive oil. Serve warm.
