Fast, easy dinner recipe made with breaded shrimp served in pitas with rosemary tzatziki sauce.
  • For shrimp:
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 lb. shrimp, thawed if frozen, deveined and shells and tails removed (I used 31/40 shrimp)
  • 1 package Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Kraft Fresh Take
  • fresh baby lettuce
  • 6-8 pita breads
  • Tzatziki sauce:
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup grated cucumber, squeezed or drained to remove some of the liquid
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped red or green onion
  • 1-2 tsp. really flavorful extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, finely minced
  1. For shrimp: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix the bread crumbs and cheese together in a small bowl. Dip each shrimp into the egg and then into the crumb/cheese mixture and lay in an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. For tzatziki sauce: Whisk all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. To serve:
  5. Layer a baby lettuce and few (4-5) shrimp on a pita bread, top with tzatziki, fold and eat.
  6. Yield: makes enough for 6-8 pitas.
Substitute the Fresh Take by combining ¾ cup fresh bread crumbs and ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese.
