Garlic Scampi's Rolled with Zucchini



End of September we went to London and then from there straight we went to Leave Shyama to her college in Leuven.

So she is not home for the weekdays ( she comes on friday and leave on sunday evening) .
Why I wrote the above information is to say that I have not baked anything at all from that time on wards.

Usually I bake something home made every few days so that when S comes from school in the late afternoon she can have freshly baked Cupcakes, Macarons, Cake etc......

But nobody is there to come home these days late afternoon saying I am hungry and what is there for snack.

So no baking, but here comes the good news, I have told S when I come and visit her on Wenesday I am bringing her some baking goodies ( I have been going to see her on Wenesday as her lessons are finished earlier ) so I go to her place and talk with her , she talks I listen as she has so much things to say what happend in the lessons and how intresting everyhting is.

And after listening to her I am asking, why is not your bed made and she replies fast well i just left like that for Airing :-)

Then we go out and have early Dinner together and then I take the train back home.

I am going this wenesday too, but I am sure soon she will tell me I don't have to come as I am the only Mom who comes and visit the daughter there and it is not good for her Image. :-)

Now to the recipe, this is a easy but really yummy Scampis, that I served when I gave drinks for a party.

I prepare them earlier and serve them cold.

1 Zucchini cut very thin. ( I use a peeler to get really thin slices)20 Scampis peeled.
Few tbsp of olive oil
1 onion finely chopped.
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tsp chillie flakes
Few tbsp of fresh parsley
2 tbsp of Lime juice
Peper and Salt for taste

Extra oil for grilling the Zuchini slices
First brush the Zuchinni slice with oil and grill in a pan andkeep aside.

Heat the oil in a pan , add the onion and fry for few minuted add the garlic, chilli flakes and fry for 2 more minutes, add the Scampis, salt and peper and fry for some 5 minutes not more other wise they get rubbery.
Add parsley and sprinkle with the lime juice.
Take 2 scampi's and roll them with a Zucchini slice.

Fabulous picture, as usual! I did scampis (with coconut and fresh coriander) for my family as well last week when I went to France.
It's touching how you tell about your daughter going to university: part funny, but part sad too... that's life! :-)
