Local, Natural, Organic-Dinner for Two In Under Two Minutes

1) Saute fresh rock shrimp in equal parts olive oil and butter for about 30 seconds, scoop them out, then pour a little white wine in the pan, and boil down for 15 seconds. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, and squeeze on some lime. Top with some crunchy fried garlic.

2) Using a very hot cast-iron pan, film with oil, then heat ostrich burgers for 30-45 seconds per side. On second side, add cheese. Top with bacon (microwave your bacon-it comes out crisp with no mess).
Rock shrimp are both fresh, local, and plentiful; and frozen, organic, ostrich burgers are available at Whole Foods. The funny thing is, ostrich tastes just like you think it would.
