Often served in America stirred into hot linguine noodles.

Number of servings: 4

Estimated Prep Time: 15 minutes

Estimated Cooking Time: 10 minutes



Juice and zest the lemon; set aside.

Mince the garlic and parsley; set aside separately.

Rinse shrimp; pat shrimp dry; set aside.

Heat a large frying pan. Add butter and oil.

Zap a heat-proof bowl in the microwave to warm it somewhat; set aside

When the oil and butter is hot (don't let the butter brown) , add the shrimp, let cook without stirring for 1 minute. Add the garlic, again without stirring, and let cook for another minute. Then stir to turn the shrimp over, and let cook for 2 minutes.

Transfer the shrimp to the warmed bowl and cover. Put the frying pan back on the heat, let heat up for a minute, then add the vermouth and lemon juice and cook for 30 seconds to make a sauce. Scrape the pan to deglaze the flavour bits into the sauce, then stir in the zest and parsley.

Pour all this sauce over the shrimp in a bowl, and season as desired with salt and pepper (freshly ground if you have it, otherwise don't sweat it.)

Send to the table.

Recipe notes

Use large shrimp (aka "prawns").

Best done in a frying pan which isn't none stick.
