Aromatic Parsley Pesto Marinated Shrimp

  • 8 Large Shrimp, Boiled and Cooled
  • Parsley Pesto Marinade
  • ½ Red Onion Diced
  • 6 ripe Roman tomatoes, or 2 ripe tomatoes, grated
  • Salt & Pepper

Parsley Pesto Marinade

  • 1 ½ Cups Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley Leaves
  • ¼ cup freshly grated kefalotiri cheese (Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese can be substituted)
  • 1 ½ cups extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 2 medium sized garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  The result will not be your typical thick pesto it will be more of a marinade.

Pour parsley pesto into a shallow bowl and add shrimp to marinate for approximately 15-20 minutes.

Grate your tomatoes and spoon onto a long serving dish or large serving plate and season with salt and pepper.

Top with shrimp that has been marinating in pesto.

Garnish with diced onion and drizzle a bit of the pesto marinade all over.

Serve and enjoy!
