Fiddle Heads Attempt #4

I just found this picture on my camera. Geoff and I made this for dinner a couple weeks ago after having gone out for drinks with his sister and brother-in-law. His brother-in-law ordered a pasta with lots of garlic, some tomatoes and oil. It smelled so good, I thought about it for days. It seemed easy enough so we gave it a shot and added a couple of extras.

Shrimp, peeled and de-veined
Fiddle Heads, ends trimmed and washed
Tomatoes (diced, or cherry tomatoes cut in half)
4 cloves garlic, chopped as much as possible
Olive oil
4 tsp lemon juice

  1. Boil fiddle heads for 5 minutes
  2. When fiddle heads are done, begin boiling pasta (should take about 10 minutes for the pasta to be ready)
  3. While the pasta is cooking, cook shrimp in a little bit of butter, 2 tsp lemon juice and garlic
  4. Fry fiddle heads in a little butter and 2 tsp lemon juice
  5. Once pasta is done, drain and put back in the pot, add fiddle heads, shrimp diced tomatoes and garlic. Toss with enough oil to just cover the noodles.

  1. Brother in law here. I love that dish. Yours needs more garlic -- I should be able to see little bits of it everywhere! And sun dried tomotoes (if you like them).
