Rosemary: Strong Stems, Strong Flavor
Rosemary plants do get sort of like pine trees. The stems are sturdy enough to be used as skewers for this grilled shrimp dish.
Rosemary also plays an important role in my "secret seasoning." In a pan, combine garlic with some extra virgin olive oil and let it get nutty brown. Throw in a handful of rosemary leaves and let those get crispy. From here, it's especially tasty to add the fixings for a tomato sauce. It gives a rustic, homey, Italian flavor to it.
