Recipe: Garlic Shrimp with Tomatoes, Lemon and Broccoli Rapini

One of the items we’ve enjoyed at the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival is the garlic shrimp from Australia. Disney author, Pam Brandon, added this recipe to the 2013 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Cookbook. The cookbook can be picked up at the Festival Center or the Festival shops around the world showcase.
