How to make it

  • Place the shrimp in a bowl and salt lightly and pepper moderately
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add Olive Oil and 1 Tbsp of Butter
  • Drain any liquid from the bowl with the shrimp and toss shrimp into hot skillet
  • Cook shrimp just until they are no longer visibly translucent (about 3 minutes - depends on what size shrimp you use - do not overcook!)
  • Remove shrimp from skillet with a slotted spoon to a plate
  • Over high heat allow any liquid in the skillet to evaporate (takes a couple of minutes)
  • Add shallots and garlic and stir for a minute
  • Add lemon juice, lemon zest, chipotle and honey and stir for a minute
  • Add chicken stock and deglaze pan
  • Reduce for a couple of minutes until thick
  • Place the cream in larger cup and add three or four spoonfuls of the hot skillet mixture to the cream and stir (do not try using anything less than heavy cream...sorry)
  • Pour the cream mixture into the skillet
  • Adjust salt to taste and add fresh cracked pepper
  • Allow to come to a foamy boil while stirring
  • Add 1 Tbsp Butter and stir in
  • Add back in the shrimp and any juices from the plate
  • Stir to coat the shrimp and heat through (a minute or so)
  • Serve over your favorite pasta or rice

    Some really nice flavors going on here. Don't tell anyone, but I frequently use Costco's cooked, peeled, deveined, frozen shirmp. So easy to make a shrimp dish on a whim when you have them in the freezer, yes? Yum.

    Wonderful use of what you had on hand! What a nice combo of flavors. I love using a bit of honey with something spicy like Chipotle. You don't even know it's there but it helps to temper the heat a bit.

    This sounds amazing, what a great concoction. Smart move with tempering the cream, it can ruin a whole dish if thats not done. I will definitly be making this yummy dish soon!

    Wow what a delicious looking recipe. Both my husband and I cook with garlics every night and consume quite a bit of shrimp. Always looking for a new way to prepare seafood. Thanks for such a creative dish.
