This year’s Australia booth had 2 of the 3 food dishes listed as gluten free. I had been dying to see if the garlic shrimp with roasted tomatoes, lemon myrtle, and garlic rapini (which is gluten free) was dairy free. The booth offerings are the same as last year, and I knew that Alexis from Gluten Free in Orlando had raved about this shrimp dish!
Like the Patagonia booth, I asked the cast members at the cash register about the items being gluten free and dairy free, and they radioed a chef to find out about ingredients. I was told that the lamb was not dairy free but that the shrimp was. Hip hip hooray for shrimp!
For me, I found this dish (on this particular day) extremely salty. I really enjoyed the shrimp, which was flavorful and well cooked. The tomatoes were lovely, as was the rapini. While, I liked the flavors, I personally wouldn’t get again unless the salt level has lessened (which is always possible given this is a catered dish essentially).
