Broiled shrimp with tomatoes, basil, and briePosted: August 3, 2011
This is a girl’s night dinner for sure. Which was perfect for a small, girls-only dinner that I hosted last night to celebrate the birthday of a dear friend.
I love girls-only dinners. It’s fun to talk about what’s going on in life and, more importantly, to talk about how you feel about what’s going on in life. It’s fun to laugh about the differences between men and women, and to watch this hilarious, and perfectly true Brian Regan clip about the male/female thought process.
But, on to the food. I made this delicious shrimp, tomato, basil & brie recipe from one of my favorite blogs-How Sweet It Is. It sounds fancy, but was actually very simple to make and didn’t take long in the oven.
We loved sopping up the delicious flavors with lots of fresh bread. The brie is the star to the show, with it’s tangy, buttery richness. Since the summer has totally killed my basil plant, we used just a little fresh basil supplemented with dried. Otherwise, we followed the recipe precisely and it was divine.
