"You could make this dish vegetarian by substituting tofu for shrimp. Leftovers are delicious served cold." –Debi Dudley, Salt Lake City
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 pounds medium peeled and deveined shrimp
8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
5 cups chopped seeded tomato (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh mint
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
How to Make It
Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil and next 6 ingredients (through shrimp) in a large bowl; toss well. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp mixture to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until done. Remove from heat; set aside.
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Place pasta in a large bowl; add tomato, basil, and mint.
Combine red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, sugar, and next 5 ingredients (through black pepper) in a small bowl. Pour over pasta mixture, and toss to coat. Place about 1 3/4 cups pasta mixture on each of 6 plates. Top each serving with about 3 ounces shrimp mixture and 2 tablespoons cheese.
I didn't have any feta, but it was fine without it. Double the dressing even if you don't use all of it because a pound of angel hair makes a lot of pasta for this small amount of dressing. The addition of the orange provided an interesting sweetness to the shrimp.
This is a wonderful find! We live in an RV much of the year, don't like to cook seafood inside--so I marinated the shrimp in first 6 ingredients for @ 6 hours, then cooked shrimp on the grill. Did the pasta and sauce inside, then added the shrimp from the grill. Everyone loved it. Organic greens with a vinegar & oil made a perfect accompaniment.
