Gamberi Di S. Polo - Treviso Shrimp

Recipe from La Cucina, from the Veneto region.

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 lb. frozen shrimp, thawed
1 medium onion, minced
1 celery stalk, minced
1 carrot, minced
pinch fresh oregano
1/2 cup dry white wine
pinch paprika
salt

Heat the olive oil in a pan; saute the garlic until golden, then remove and discard it. Add the shrimp, onion, celery, carrot and oregano, then pour in the wine. Add some paprika and salt and cook for 3 minutes with the lid on the pan and 3 minutes with the lid off.

Side dishes were polenta, yum, and sauteed escarole (thank you Debi!). We had a bottle of Fat Cat Pinot Grigio.

And dinner took less than 20 minutes to make!
