Servings: 4 as part of multicourse meal      Prep Time:       Cook Time:


1 lb shell-on shrimp
½ cup white wine
½ stick of butter
3 tbl minced shallots
2 tbl fresh rosemary
1 tsp fresh thyme
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbl olive oil
1 tbl sea salt
crushed red pepper
chopped parsley
loaf of crusty french bread


Preheat oven to 375F.

If you are using extra large shrimp, you can butterfly them, keeping them in the shell, like I did in the photo. Otherwise, leave them whole in the shell. Wash and carefully cut through shell to devein the shrimp while leaving the shell on. The easiest way to do this is with sharp, pointy kitchen shears. Just cut through the back. Heat olive oil and butter in large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. When hot but not smoking, add the shallots, garlic, rosemary, red pepper and thyme. Fry until fragrant. Add wine, salt, pepper. When boiling, turn heat off and toss in the shrimp. Send it off to the oven for 7-10 minutes, or until shrimp is cooked through. Timing will depend on the size of shrimp, check after 7 minutes. Garnish with sea salt, chopped parsley. Serve with bread to soak up the juices.
