½ lb. large shrimp, peeled, deveined, split lengthwise
2 large roma tomatoes
6 tablespoons infused za’atar aioli*
Juice of ½ lime

Toast or grill pita, cut in half and add a tablespoon of aioli on each one. Serve with extra pita and aioli but consume extra aioli judiciously. Makes 4 servings, each about 14 mg THC from a 20 percent strain.
1. Heat a film of olive oil in a medium-large pot and saute 1 chopped onion and 2 chopped shallots over medium-high heat.
2. When they start to brown, add 2 smashed garlic cloves, 1 leek, 1 carrot and 1 celery stalk, all chopped.
3. Saute 2 minutes and add 2 small or 1 large fish carcasses and reserved shrimp shells (ask your fishmonger).
