Shrimp Diablo with RiceThe Mexican dish comes together in a flash and is packed with flavor. We recommend serving it over rice with lime wedges on the side and some extra cilantro!Maryland Crab CakesWhile crab cakes are traditionally associated with the area around the Chesapeake Bay, they have become popular the world over. These are Baltimore style crab cakes with the traditional use of Old Bay Seasoning for flavor and Saltine crackers as a binder. We omitted the final dredge in breadcrumbs and pan fry in our own extra virgin olive oil. This meal comes together in minutes and the leftovers can be frozen and reheated!Shrimp and GritsWhether you call them “grits” or “polenta”, stone-ground corn makes a creamy, cheesy and delicious base for sautéed shrimp. The origins of Shrimp and Grits can be traced to Africa, and in the United States, South Carolina has become its historical home. Our version uses our own Colavita olive oil and diced tomatoes for a full, savory flavor.Mulino Bianco and Baci Perugina Chocolate TartOlive Oil Cookie Dough PopsThis sweet treat has a sneaky healthy ingredient - chickpeas!
