I had a craving for shrimp yesterday so I bought some at Costco. Usually, when I buy shrimp, I make scampi and wanted to try something different. When I got home, I wondered which CL recipe to try and chose this one from last June. I should have saved the shrimp and tried the recipe with the orzo and basil instead.
It was mediocre at best, but has lots of potential for improvement, so I may try it again, but I'm not in a hurry to do so.
For starters, the 2 roma tomatoes that I had weren't the best and I had to use grape tomatoes to make up the difference. It would be better with good tomatoes, more oregano and garlic and maybe some basil. It did taste better today for lunch but it still lacked "oomph".
If you are referring to the Basil Shrimp with Feta and Orzo (when you mentioned trying the recipe with basil and orzo), I thought that one was fabulous! Really easy and very flavorful! And guests have loved it too. Better luck next time .
