My Mom saved this for me from the Sun-Sentinel, 11/1/07.

Directions

  1. Roll the pancetta into a cylinder, then cut into thin shreds.
  2. Heat the oil in a 10" nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. When hot, add the pancetta and fry until crisp; transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Pour off all but 2 teaspoons of the fat in the pan and heat on medium-high heat.
  5. Add the shrimp and saute 2 minutes and now add the basil and saute another minute, or until shrimp is just cooked through.
  6. Toss shrimp in pancetta, lemon juice and pepper; taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
  7. Serve immediately.
