Author Notes

We had a home in Croton-on-Hudson, an hour north of NYC. Often on Friday evenings, Alan would pick me up at the train station and we would eat at a local Cafe. They served a shrimp dish with feta that I have re-created as the Cafe is long gone. And the dish is one of Alan's favs when I can find fresh shrimp from the USA! It is a quick and delicious dinner for family or entertaining. —Kathy Murray
