SHRIMP DE JONGHE
Serves 4 Preparation time 20 minutes. An elegant appetizer.
1 lb. large raw shrimp, no tails (about 24 shrimp)
3/4 stick unsalted butter
2 Tbs. virgin olive oil
1 cup soft bread crumbs (a French baguette makes good ones)
1/4 cup fresh parley leaves, minced
3-4 large garlic cloves, minced
dash of cayenne
dash of paprika
1/4 cup dry sherry (must be dry!!)
4 scallop shells (Burhop's sells these) or ramekins
In a large skillet, over low heat, melt the butter with the olive oil and saute the garlic until soft. Add the raw shrimp and toss with the butter and garlic. Raise the heat slightly and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring regularly, until the shrimp turn opaque and curl. Move the shrimp to the ramekins or scallop shells on a baking sheet, leaving the butter and olive oil in the pan. Return the pan to burner over low heat.
Add the sherry, bread crumbs (process bread in a blender), parsley, cayenne and paprika to the butter mixture remaining in the pan and stir well. Spoon the crumb mixture over the shrimp, and brown under the broiler for 1 or 2 minutes. WATCH CLOSELY! Don't put too close to the heat. You don't want to burn the tops, just brown them. The shrimp is already cooked.
Serve with lemon wedges, toasted baguette rounds and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

SKINNY SHRIMP WITH ZUCCHINI NOODLES
Prep time: 15 minutes Serves 2 - 3
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb. jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 medium zucchini, cut into noodles
To make zucchini noodles, cut the ends off of the zucchinis, and "peel" down to (but not into) the seed layer with a julienne peeler. A great, inexpensive tool to have in your kitchen. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add olive oil to a sauté pan and heat it on medium low for a minute. Add the garlic and cook for a minute to soften, stirring constantly so it does not burn. Add the shrimp to the pan and cook them, stirring as needed, until they are cooked throughout and pink on all sides, about 3 minutes. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and then transfer them to a bowl. Increase the heat to medium. Add the lemon juice to the pan and the zucchini noodles and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes. Return the shrimp to the pan and toss to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
Serve with rice, crusty bread, and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or a non-oaked Chardonnay.
