Barefoot Bloggers: Baked Shrimp Scampi

What a gem of a recipe this one is!  I’m so glad I joined Barefoot Bloggers and that Jill of Insanely Good Food chose this recipe for us.  In my mind, it’s not your typical Scampi recipe, but boy is it good!!!  Definitely a keeper!

Try to ignore my stained stoneware and just focus on the beauty of these shrimp. I’ll be making this recipe again soon.  Maybe I’ll use a prettier dish next time.  Or not.

The recipe can be found here.  It’s from Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics.  I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed these shrimp.   Here are the ingredients:

  • 2 pounds (12 to 15 per pound) shrimp in the shell
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic (4 cloves)
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 extra-large egg yolk
  • 2/3 cup panko (Japanese dried bread flakes)
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

It’s Thyme to Eat!

    I think the stained dish is a sign that you actually use it and make all sorts of good stuff!
