Adventures in shallot, Part II

Since my Sunday post about shallots, I received a few suggestions on how I could incorporate them in my cooking. Two I intend to try: omelette with shallots and a cold salad with a dressing of shallots in red wine vinegar and olive oil.

This evening though I made another pasta dish, a seafood dish with shrimp, tomatoes (fresh and sun dried, and a bit of canned), and olives (cocktail, which is what I had to hand, though the recipe called for black) as the main ingredients, along with the shallot, of course. A bit of garlic too, this time and fresh parsley in lieu of basil. (I need to start an herb garden; present living conditions aren't optimal.) Grated parmesan topped off the dish.

Stay tuned for further shallot instalments, if you can stand the suspense.
