Crevette Dans Le Vin Blanc!

My first post in the Recipe Lair!

Ok this recipe is based off the Sicilian Scampi you can get at most Olive Gardens. A great starter or can even be used as a meal. I'll be making this tonight so I might post pictures later if anyone is interested. =)

Crevette Dans Le Vin Blanc
Serves 4 (2 pieces of bread with 1 shrimp on each piece each)

6 tablespoons of Olive OIl
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon minced white onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons of Chablis wine
8 large shrimp, shelled, sliced in half
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons of heavy cream
2 tablespoons of black olives, sliced
pinch of kosher salt
pinch of ground black peper
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

8 slices of baguette, toasted

Optional Garnish
1 diced fresh roma tomato
freshly grated parmesan or romano cheese

Toast the sliced baguette on a sheet pan in your oven, set to broil, toast evenly on both sides until light brown. Once done arrange on desired dish.

Heat a sillet over medium heat. Add butter and olive oil to the pan. One the butter is fully melted add onion and garlic. Sauté for just a few minutes then add the wine.

Immediately add the shrimp to the pan. After adding the shrimp, quickly add the lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and crushed read pepper. Cook for one to two minutes tossing occasionally until the shirmp are cooked.

Once the shrimp are done, add the cream and olives. Cook for just about 15 seconds or so, making sure to blend the cream smoothly.

Place two of the halves of shrimp on each piece of toasted baguette slice. Pour the sauce from the pan over all the shrimp and on the dish. Sprinkle the diced roma tomato, scallions and freshly grated cheese over it all.

Serve and enjoy!
