Sunday Small Bites #1: SHRIMP


For my shrimp appetizer, I made "Morton's Steakhouse Shrimp Alexander" from copykat.com. Here is the recipe:

4 oz. melted butter or margarine
Prepared bread crumbs (see below)
1 lb. jumbo shrimp (8-12) to the pound
1 C. plain bread crumbs
2-3 tsp. finely minced shallots
2 tsp. finely chopped parsley
1 1/2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare bread crumbs by combing plain bread crumbs, shallots, parsley, and garlic. You may wish to add some salt and pepper to taste. Preheat oven to 500. Shell and devein shrimp; butterfly. Dip shrimp in butter (butter should be warm, not hot) then in bread crumb mixture.
Place on cookie sheet which has been sprayed with a butter-flavored spray. Cook 6-8 minutes.

Instead of adding the shallots and garlic to the breadcrumbs, I added it to the butter when I melted it. I used panko instead of breadcrumbs. Easy and delicious!

For a dipping sauce, I used 1/2 c. mayo, 1 T. soy sauce, and zest from one large lemon (2 Tablespoons of zest). Stir together and dip those shrimp!

Looks so good! Love Shrimp! the idea of the new slowtrav small bites theme is genius.

A beautiful classic, beautifully presented. But what else should I expect from you. I just love your plating skills!
