Shrimp with Garlic & Herbs; sunflowers

Escargot de Bourgogne or Burgundy Snails are a classic French dish.

The snails are drenched in a garlic-y parsley butter.

Some people say that the best part of the dish is mopping up the garlic butter with bread once the snails are out of the way gone.

I am one of those people.

The snails are fine but the parsley butter is fantastic.

So why not use it in other dishes? Like to finish grilled shrimp?

Serve over rice, pasta, or just with bread to mop up the sauce.

Shrimp with Garlic & Herbs

We did the shrimp in a perforated grill pan on the barbecue but a skillet will work. They cook in minutes.

Everybody loves looking at the fields of golden sunflowers….

Sadly, those golden fields don’t last long.

The fields are lovely for a week or 2, then they look like this for what seems like forever until harvested:

A close-up:

There were a lot of sunflowers planted this year and there is already rapeseed growing for next spring – both for vegetable oil.

  1. No snails. Nope. No, absolutely not. Not going to happen. Ever. But I’ll use the sauce!

    I keep planting sunflowers. They never come up 🙁
