Shrimp Casserole

(Firinda Karides)

Shrimp Casserole
250g shrimps, cooked, de-veined and peeled
1 tbsp butter
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cubanelle pepper, discard the seeds, cut in small cubes
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 large tomato, diced
Crushed pepper (Red pepper flakes)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Saute the onion with butter and salt for 3-4 minutes in a medium-sized pan. Add the cubanelle peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes at medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until the smell of garlic comes out. Then add the diced tomatoes and shrimp. Cook until the tomatoes are softened a little bit at medium heat.

Place the dish in a flat earthenware pot. Season it both with the pepper and crushed pepper, drizzle olive oil all over it.

Set the oven to grill. Place the pot on the top rack and cook for 5-6 minutes. Serve this classic Turkish hot appetizer in its own pot.

I never cooked Turkish before and this recipe was easy. My Turkish boyfriend and his roomate loved it! I think the best part in the taste from the cubanelle pepper.
