Parmesan Pan-Roasted Shrimp Recipe
2 shallots, minced (about 2 Tablespoons – See Notes)
1 clove garlic, minced
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup (4 ounces) extra virgin olive oil plus 1 Tablespoon for shrimp
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup freshly cooked or canned white beans, such as cannellini
1 cup (about 4 ounces) Wisconsin Parmesan cheese, cut in small dice
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Place shallots and garlic in mixing bowl. Add pinch of salt and mix. Add lemon juice, stir and slowly whisk in olive oil. Add tomatoes, beans, Parmesan cheese, and dill. Mix well and set aside.
To pan-roast shrimp:
Heat remaining 1 Tablespoon olive oil in sauté pan. Add shrimp and cook, turning until pink and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Do not overcook. Season to taste with salt and coarsely ground black pepper.
Add warm shrimp to prepared mixture and toss. Serve immediately.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
• Fine-minced sweet onions may be substituted for the shallots. Standard yellow cooking onions may be a bit too harsh, since the onions are used raw. Sliced scallions (green onions) will also work and will add nice color.
