Fast & Simple: star fruit and egg pie


9 shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
6 eggs
1 small star fruit, diced, reserve 3 whole widthwise slices
freshly ground pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the shrimp and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they just start to take on color. 2. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil and add the hot red pepper flakes. Remove the shrimp from the water and add to the skillet. Cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are pink almost all the way through. Remove from the skillet and set aside. (If some of the shrimp are still a little raw in the center it is ok, because they will continue to cook in the oven.) 3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the diced star fruit, season with salt and freshly ground pepper and mix until combined. 4. Transfer the egg mixture to a shallow pie dish. Place the 3 whole pieces of star fruit in the center and surround them with the shrimp. 5. Transfer to the oven to cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the eggs have set and have browned slightly on top. Serve immediately or at room temperature accompanied by a salad. Serves 4

Remove: hot red pepper flakes
Medium-bodied white wine, such as Vernaccia or Arneis, or a light-bodied red wine, such as Primitivo
