Welcome folks for another Sportsman’s Table edition here. We are in beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina at Wicked Tuna Restaurant and I tell ya what, Ed Dombrowski, he is the owner of Lee’s Farm here at beautiful Murrells Inlet. You’ve seen Ed on the show before. Hey, Drunkin’ Shrimp, you’ve gotta remember.
Yeah, that’s right.
We love havin’ Ed come back and here, we’re on location at Wicked Tuna. Ed..
Great to see you again Bob.
Man, it’s good to see you.
Thanks for having me again.
Oh you’re welcome. What do you got for us today?
Today we’re gonna do a little shrimp dish, Shrimp Scampi, but I’m gonna do a little bit more Mediterranean style. Typically, when you think Shrimp Scampi, it’s more like Italian. Here I’m gonna make it more Mediterranean Greek. We’re gonna add little bit of feta cheese. We’re gonna use zucchini, things like that.
Oh wow, okay.
Alright, so what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna get some oil and butter in the pan.
There you go.
Gotta get that sizzle goin’.
Oh, yeah. Gotta put the butter in.
And, you know, the great thing too about these farms, you guys, it’s all about local South Carolina.
Excellent. The butter, everything.
Shrimp is local. A lot of the produce that you see here we actually grow right at the market.
So Well we got this goin’ here, I’m gonna throw some shallots. Gotta love those shallots
Gotta have shallots.
Gotta have shallots. Gotta have the garlic. Okay, I made these more like a sliver opposed to a mince. So they’ll get almost like little chips so they have a little texture to them.
[Bob] Well then your breath would be…
[Ed] Exactly, yeah exactly. Alright, I’m gonna throw a little bit oregano and thyme in it, which is, again that Mediterranean flavor.
[Bob] Gosh, you just smell the flavor.
Exactly. Now we’re gonna throw our shrimp in.
Okay now, lot of folks will argue how long to cook the shrimp, okay.
Very quick. Couple minutes, that’s all we wanna do. Is we wanna get ’em just pink.
[Bob] Now from sight, is just where they start to turn red.
[Ed] When they turn red, that’s what we wanna do.
Now instead of using pasta, ’cause a lot of people use pasta for scampis, I’m using zucchini and I spiraled it. Okay, so everything’s nice and fresh.
[Bob] Ahh, okay.
[Ed] Okay, so we’ll add that in there.
[Bob] Oh, neat.
[Bob] Now that’s a first.
[Ed] Yup. You know, a lot of people went to whole gluten free and stuff like that.
[Ed] So we do that and again you’ll notice it’s all fresh South Carolina grown. Mix that around a little bit.
[Bob] Now how long to you usually cook the zucchini.
Again, just like shrimp, real quick. Just ’cause it’s real nice and thin.
So it’s still gonna be crunchy.
I’m gonna throw a little bit more butter in there.
Okay, now I’m gonna throw a little bit, crumble a little bit of feta cheese in there.
Okay. A little bit of lemon zest.
[Ed] Mix it around.
[Bob] You know, that zucchini looks just like noodles.
[Ed] It does. Alright.
[Bob] And there we go, Scampi. Mm.
Now it’s gonna be ready to plate. So what we’re gonna do here… put that up on there, like that and then we’re gonna finish it off with a little…
Ahh, a little decoration.
Little bit more decoration. Gotta have some color on there. Okay, a little bit of lemon zest. Lemon goes great
[Bob] Oh yeah.
with this. Little bit more feta. Who doesn’t like cheese.
Yeah, there you go.
Okay and then finish her off with a little bit of parsley. And there you have, you have a Mediterranean Shrimp Scampi.
That is just fabulous. Look at there folks, another great recipe this week from Ed Dombrowski at Lee’s Farm, here at beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. I tell you what, I’ll let you hold that. I ain’t gonna shake your hand.
