I looked up Cambray onion and the majority of descriptions claim it to be baby pearl onions. A few sources say that spring onion will be a suitable sub.


  1. Clean the shrimps, put them on the butter with the onion, salt and pepper in a skillet.
  2. Add the lime slices, fry till the shrimp is barely cooked through and take them off the flame.
  3. Add the sour cream and serve.

This is so easy to put together and so tasty. My market was out of jumbo shrimp, so I subbed about 20 medium shrimp. I also used a diced shallot for the cambray onion. I wasn't sure what to do with the cooked lime slices and they looked kind of unappetizing, so I discarded them before adding the sour cream, and put a fresh slice on each plate. Served with a lemon-oregano flavored pasta I found at the Farmer's market. Great meal! Made for ZWT8.
