Gamberi al Cioccolato #ChocolateWeek

This dish is a fun take on Shrimp Scampi.  The addition of a Dark Chocolate Drizzle makes this dish feel a bit more decadent and special.

Today is the final day of Chocolate Week and since it is also a Friday I wanted to find a fish/seafood recipe that used chocolate.

I found this Italian Recipe on Food Network.  I also found a recipe from Italy, however it is in Italian and since I can't read Italian I went with this one.  It turned out lovely and I was happy knowing that it was an actual, traditional recipe.

I wasn't sure what to serve with a Chocolate Shrimp.  Should I put it over pasta?  If I do should I thin out some of the chocolate and make a sauce?  Should I make some homemade chocolate pasta?  That seems like a lot of work and I still don't know what sauce I would use.  

In the end, I roasted up some vegetables and opened up a package of Quinoa/Brown Rice mixture.  It was perfect.  My husband and Teen chose to have their shrimp scampi sans chocolate.  Their loss....
It was so good.

  2. I might be convinced to try shrimp if it's doused in chocolate! Leave it to the Italians! YAY, I know my hubby would love this recipe!
