Herb Roasted Shrimp and Tomatoes sits on a bed of saffron scented orzo to make a really delicious dinner! This recipe is to celebrate Florida tomato month.
April is Florida Fresh Tomato Month
If you are looking for some tomato eye candy, you have come to the right place. If you read my blog, you know I am a tomato fanatic. While I love NJ tomatoes in the summer, now I am enjoying Florida tomatoes as April is National Fresh Florida Tomato Month. The Florida Tomato Committee sent me a box of beautiful red juicy tomatoes and we feasted on them for a week.
Just gorgeous , right? Fresh tomatoes are great to cook with but I also love them in Caprese salads.
Herb Roasted Shrimp with Tomatoes
I was asked to come up with a recipe and so many ideas swirled around my head. I wanted to make a sauce but thought these tomatoes were just too good to cook on the stove for hours. So I decided to roast them in the oven to bring out the natural sweetness. They were perfect paired with herb roasted shrimp over some saffron scented orzo. The colors were just fabulous.
Please head on over to the Florida Tomato website and check out my recipe for Herb Roasted Shrimp and Tomatoes with Saffron Scented Orzo. While you are there, you can find some other great recipes from their site. They also have good tips for storing, cooking and serving tomatoes.

One of my favorite ways to eat tomatoes is with just a touch of sea salt. What is yours? I do hope you take advantage of National Fresh Florida Tomato Month. The produce section of my grocery stores are just bursting with them.

Favorite way is Tomato and Bacon sandwich. Love them roasted with Parmesan cheese on them. Really, there is not too many ways that I don't love them.
That looks good!

OMG YUM! ahhh my mouth is watering while I bask in the glorious photos of tomatoes and shrimp. I want! I'm going to have to put this on my menu before summer hits and I don't want to turn on the oven...they look too good to pass up.
Funny, I usually connect Florida with oranges, not tomatoes!
