Primal Saucy Shrimp recipe
While working back east some time ago (I am now
back at home in the desert), I discovered Bonefish
Grill. Their appetizer, Saucy Shrimp, was good
enough that I would often just order that and end
up wishing I had ordered two!
I have been making a primal version which replaces
the sugar w/honey and cannot tell any difference in
the taste. So, here it is. Give it a whirl and I hope
you like it as much as we do!
(I make the sauce and shrimp at the same time. It
takes a bit of practice, but you can easily do one then
the other because you combine everything at the end).
Lime Tomato Garlic sauce (4 servings)
Place in saucepan:
1/2 cup roughly chopped sun dried tomatoes (i use oil packed, have yet to try dried)
1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh tomatoes
1/4 cup lemon juice
juice of 2 limes
1/4 cup chopped garlic
1/2 cup white wine
1.5 tsp honey
Stir and let cook until volume reduces by half, then add:
1 cup heavy cream
2 tspn salt
1 tspn white pepper
Stir and simmer until mixture thickens. Then, reduce heat to medium/low,
and add tbspn butter. Stir until butter melts, reduce heat.
1 oz butter
5 oz (50-60 count) shrimp. peeled, deveined, no tail (unless you like a little tail)
4 kalamata olives (4 is NEVER enough)
2 oz sun dried tomatoes
1/4 lime-tomato-garlic sauce
2 oz crumbled Feta (need more!)
add 1 oz butter to saute pan, tilting to coat entire pan
saute shrimp, olives and sun dried tomatoes until shrimp turn opaque
add 1/4 of the garlic lime sauce. Toss w/shrimp and remove from
heat. pour all ingredients onto service plate including remaining
Oh. My. God.
Thank you for posting this!
I made this, using wild caught Argentinian Pink Shrimp (a large, meaty shrimp that has a lobster-like flavor).
I omitted the honey and feta (although I imagine it would have made it even better, if that's possible) and used coconut milk instead of heavy cream...I served it as an entree over cauliflower "rice," which soaked up that sauce. I also doubled the olives.
THIS WAS AWESOME!
Nice! good to hear you liked it. I will have to try your
substitutions and see how it goes.
Oh wow, if one could drown in a puddle of her own drool, I would be!
(I've tried dried sundried tomatoes and found them much tougher than the oil version)
OH, just checking, the shrimp are raw yes?
Oh my....this sounds awesome!
