It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival time! The best part of the festival is eating, of course, but there are plenty of dishes that I know I’ve come home and thought, man…that was good! I wish I could make that on a semi-regular basis! So, I’m going to try to share a few recipes over the next few weeks of things that have been featured at the Festival that you too can enjoy from your own dining room table!
This week’s recipe is for the yummy garlic shrimp that was once served at the Australia Booth.
Garlic Shrimp with Tomatoes, Lemon and Broccoli Rabe

1 tablespoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
