If you’re tired of the usual pizza, this is definitely the answer for you. Shrimp and bleu cheese may not be a usual combo, but together with the runny egg, makes for a great dish. It’s a great way to introduce bleu cheese to beginners, but you can replace that with a milder cheese if desired.

Ingredients (serves 4)

400 grams suahe shrimp, shelled
2 onions, sliced thinly
4 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
¼ cup green olives, sliced
2 tbsps tomato sauce
2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
100 g blue cheese
1 whole piece focaccia bread, sliced in half
