BEST SHRIMP DINNER EVER
Full disclosure, I found a couple recipes on the internet many years that came very close to the taste of the Killer Shrimp dish served by the restaurant of the same name. Although I have fiddled with the recipe, I cannot claim it as my creation.
recipe serves 4.
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
2 tsps thyme
1 tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp fennel seed
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp crushed red pepper
2 qts. clam broth (Better Than Boullon makes a great Clam Base, if that is not available you can use their Lobster Base, and if all else fails you could use chicken stock, but I wouldn’t).
3 oz tomato paste
1 stick butter
1 lb shelled shrimp
1 loaves french bread (you will be dipping the bread in the broth and you will be loving it)
Make the clam broth per directions on whatever base you use, add the stick of butter, tomato paste and all other ingredients except the shrimp. Bring to high simmer and reduce to low simmer.
Call me crazy, but while waiting for the family to get home or the guests to arrive, make a salad.
When you are about to serve dinner, bring the sauce to a boil, drop the shelled shrimp into the pot, bring back to a boil, and then reduce heat and cook at high simmer for about 5 minutes.
